This is the final Open Hearth Cooking & Brick Oven Baking Workshop offered in 2014.  Don't miss this wonderful opportunity!

Be sure to take a look at the gallery of photos (below) from this year's three previous workshops.

All workshops feature "seasonally appropriate" fare and provide an opportunity to learn hearth and oven skills, while exploring the history of the foods being prepared.  The workshops conclude with a hearth-to-table dinner in the style of the 1830's-40's.

Additional workshops will be scheduled for 2015.
