Directions

Do you love to cook?  This will be a fascinating program for you!  Explore 17th century cooking in the daily life of English soldiers, middle-class colonists and VA Indians.  At the Indian site you will see the smoking of meat and learn how to make harvest stew and corn cakes.  Historical interpreters will show you how English soldiers made small rations of salted bacon, peas and oatmeal appealing through additives of bread, cheese and yard vegetables. Middle-class cooking will be featured at the re-created plantation of John & Alice Proctor to highlight a typical English autumn meal. 

$9 – Adults, $7 – Children 6-12; Henricus Patrons Free.
