Looks Like A Fun Thing To Do

I came across this and looked at it. Deerfield in in the western part of Massachusetts. It is where they make those very expensive candles.


Historic Deerfield :: Hot on Cooking

I would love to go!

That does look like a fun thing to do...wonder if I could get Upper Canada Village to do s/thing like that...a lot closer to home (and, the farm is just around the corner, so I could host a fellow DCer or two!).

Why not? The worst thing that could happen is that they say No. Gove it a shot.

I already did that. I can expect a reply in 14-business days. I can see where they would have concerns about insurance, food poisoning, etc.

Would it help if you gave them the site to Deerfield?

Crumbs. It'd make you appreciate gas and electricity.

Old Sturbridge Village in MA also has hearth dinners which have "audience" participation. It seems to be a common theme among recreated/restored historical towns. OSV's seems to be a bit less ambitious than Deerfield's event, so this might give you other options for flexibility if you have a chance to do this up by you CW.

I love Sturbridge Village. Been there several times. Plymouth Plantation also does the same. And they have a great feast at Thanksgiving. But you have to get your reservation in real early. Mostly because so many celebrities are invited for free. Usually the Governor for one. Even the Wamponog Indians. What I love about PP is that they all speak in the language of the time with the accent. And they never come out of character

that looks really cool. i would love to wear a hoop skirt and cook on a hearth.

but seriously, it is a fun thing to do. as any leathered camper knows, it's and art to cook on an open fire. a hearth takes cave man to real cooking with better control and tools.

here's uncle bob, bolas and pacanus (again) , and hoot?

My sister and I, when we had the Girl Scout troop, taught the girls how to cook their meals over a campfire. It was either learn or go hungry. They had to cook their breakfast and lunch over the fire. Supper was an all pitch in, in the camp kitchen. It was how they earned a few badges. By day two, they all thought it was fun.
