Event Description

Do you have a wood-burning stove at home that you’d like to cook on, but need some instruction on how to do it?  Want to try cooking like your great-grandparents? Roll up your sleeves and make hearty meat stew, a vegetable side dish, bread, and a cake.  Participants will learn the design of the wood stove and how to properly use it. After the meal is prepared, sit down to enjoy the food and ask last-minute questions. And, yes, you will get recipes to take home and try!
