Open hearth cook classes in Hebron

M odern cooking might be convenient, but it wasn’t so easy to prepare food before electricity.

The Wilson Homestead in Hebron, N.Y., will offer one-day open hearth cooking classes on Saturday Nov. 9 and 16. All meals will be cooked in the stone fireplace and bake oven.

Students will use original or reproduction hearth equipment such as a tin reflector, Dutch oven, iron pots, kettles and fireplace tools. The meal consists of roast meat, local root vegetables, whole grain bread, fruit pies and cider.

The classes of up to seven people begin at 9 a.m. and run until about 2 p.m., and the class fee is $45. Gift certificates are available. A group of six may create their own class for a different date. To register contact Sally Brillon at 518-854-3134 or 1117 Chamberlin Mills Road, Salem, 12865. Spring classes will be announced at a later date.
