*** FRONTIER FOODS - Sunday, June 23, 1-4 pm
Just what DID the early settlers eat? How did they cook their food out here in the wilderness of the Depreciation Lands?
You will see demonstrations of different cooking styles and a variety of foods on this day devoted to Frontier Foods. You will even get to see a variety of 18th century style pots, dishes and drinking vessels!
There was a tremendous variety of food styles in the 18th century, depending on one's circumstances. While you won't find a meal as seen in the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, you will appreciate the creativity and ingenuity of our backwoods cooks.
Mrs Greiner will be cooking a family meal in the log house, while a traveler prepares supper for her family outside. You may find a hunter in the woods cooking his simple meal, while in the Tavern, Mr Rible will show you his offerings of food and beverages (sorry, no samples). In the outdoor Bake Oven, Baker Ed Tutino will be making a variety of breads and dishes for the Tavern.
Admission: $5/adults, $3/children, Free to DLMA members
