Private Lessons for up to Four Guests
Enjoy an intimate, hands-on culinary experience inside Renfrew’s 1814 Summer Kitchen. Guests will be taught the basics of early nineteenth-century open hearth cooking techniques by preparing their own period meal under the guidance of our domestic life historians in period dress. Menu selections reflect the seasonal ingredients available to local families, like the Royers who lived here during the early nineteenth century, and can be tailored to participants’ dietary needs. You will learn about historic hearth equipment, how it works, and use it safely to create a delicious and hearty repast. Nothing tastes better than a hearth-cooked meal made by your own two hands!
