Time: 2:00 pm

Step back in time to prepare simple baked goods using recipes from the 19th-century.  You’ll try out a variety of hearth-cooking techniques, with the help of historic Cook Demonstrator Julia Baird, in Nelles Manor’s original 230-year old open hearth fireplace.  You’ll also receive a tour of the museum, time to sit and enjoy the baked goods around the harvest table, and a booklet of recipes to take home.

Julia Baird is a Historical Interpreter who has worked in historic house museums with a culinary focus for a decade, using mid 19th-century recipes to cook, bake & preserve using an open hearth, brick oven and wood-fired range. You’ll find her Food History blog at www.juliabaird.com. Pre-registration is required. Please give us a call at 289-235-775 or visit the Eventbrite ticketing page to reserve your place.
