Open Hearth Cooking

May 15, 2021

Join us at Fort Jesup State Historic Site, where a costumed living historian will demonstrate cooking techniques on the open hearth.  The event is set for Saturday, May 15 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. The demonstration will be held in the original military kitchen, which is 199 years old.  The demonstration will include a discussion of foods commonly eaten at the Fort in the 1820s, a discussion of cooking techniques, and a physical demonstration of historic cooking.  Guests are invited to observe and ask questions about food ways in the 1800s.
