Stepping Back in Time: Hearth Cookery and More . . .

9am to 5pm

At Westmoore Pottery:

Join historical cooks Eve King of South Carolina and Suzanne Simmons of North Carolina as they cook in our large fireplace.  Cooking demos will be from 10am-1pm and from 2pm-4pm.

In the last few years there has been a rise in the craft food movement, including the farm to table trend, artisan foods, and small specialty restaurants.  While this appears to be new and innovative, its roots are firmly anchored in history.

As historical cooks we often find examples of today's "new and innovative" approaches tucked away in the receipts (recipes) or methods of cookery dating back centuries.

This year's Stepping Back in Time will explore the roots of some of our well known contemporary comfort foods using 18th and 19th century receipts (recipes) and methods of cooking, to reveal their link to the 21st century.

Join us as we travel through time and discover that "new and innovative" may be older than you think!

Come watch, learn, sample, and ask questions to your heart's content!

 

At Mill Creek Forge (next door to Westmoore Pottery):

Mill Creek Forge will be hosting three guest blacksmiths and a knifemaker at its forge, also demos of spinning and weaving by Sandhills Handweavers Guild, soap-making, natural dyeing of yarn, candle-making, rustic woodworking, tomahawks, and cornhusk dolls.

Coffee and sausage biscuits will be served as long as they last!
