Saturday, October 8, 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Practice cooking with wood on the Hanford House kitchen’s Royal Bride cookstove in this hands-on workshop. Participants will prepare a variety of chutneys, relishes, and conserves using fall’s bounty and recipes from cookbooks in use in the 1920s, and will go home with jars of comestibles, including potted cheese, to enjoy over the winter. A soup and sandwich lunch will also be prepared and enjoyed in the Hanford House dining room. Handouts with recipes and cookstove tips will be provided. The workshop is intended for ages 13 and up.
Workshop instructor, Pamela Cooley, has been cooking on wood cookstoves for over 20 years, and frequently demonstrates at Hanford Mills, where she was named 2014 Volunteer of the Year. She has also done woodstove, open hearth, and bake oven cooking at Genesee Country Village and Museum, Fort York, Peter Wentz Farmstead, Eastfield Village, Landis Valley Museum, The Farmers’ Museum, and Old Sturbridge Village. She recently retired from the New York State Archives where she was an archivist and the Documentary Heritage Program Officer.
