Directions

Come and explore 17th century cooking in the daily life of English soldiers, middle-class colonists and Virginia Indians. Demonstrations at the Indian site will include the smoking of meat and making harvest stew and corn cakes. The English soldiers made small rations out of salted bacon, peas and oatmeal made appealing by the addition 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 autumn meal.
