Back in the Day Hearth Cooking Class at Montclair Historical Society

Hearth Cooking Class

On Saturday, February 8, Montclair Historical Society will offer families a  hands-on hearth cooking class at the Israel Crane House ’s 1796 home. Children and adults will learn first-hand how meals were prepared for centuries before the advent of modern equipment and technologies. You will use historic tools, recipes and ingredients, hone your open-fire cooking skills and enjoy delectable dishes of the past.

It’s a wonderful opportunity  in experiencing a slice of life from our not-so-distant past to enjoy a truly fun, intimate, eye-opening experience that will change the way they think about our modern luxuries. It’s also a window into the lives of women in pre-modern times, and an opportunity to think about our relationship with food; as well as the relationship between our modern food culture and the technologies that make it possible.
