Create a Taste of History

Experience the craft and savor the tastes of authentic 18th century cooking!

In 1747, English cook Hannah Glasse revolutionized how we eat by publishing the first book of recipes written in language for the common person.

Today, we delve into her recipes using authentic heirloom ingredients in the open hearth kitchen standing beside the home of Pennsylvania colonial-era governor Sir William Keith. Each class menu is based on historical seasonal ingredients, styled after menus true to the eating habits of the era.
No experience is necessary, ages sixteen and up welcome. All classes taught by experienced open hearth cook Erin Agnew and run from 11 am to 4 p.m.
