Cooking Demostration at Hearthside House!

  During the Great Road Day Tour, I did a cooking demonstration to promote Hearthside's  new cook book.

 I showed my cooking skilled on open fire . It was challenging, but inspirational.


 I have spent many years on research of historic cooking. It was very rewarding to get the opportunity to practice this art. 

Checking the beans for softness. The vegetable soup is not done until the beans are soft.


Stewing plums and pears for making a nice sauce. Great for drizzling over cakes and short bread. 

 With the help of my granddaughter Jayniece,

 Jayniece has such a passion for history and enjoys stepping back in time to re-live it with me.
