Everyday, we cook, saute’, steam, and bake on a word burning stove just like the farm ladies of 1900 would. On this page, we share a few of the recipes with you. Give them a try in your kitchen, but keep a few things in mind:
In most cases we will provide both the historic recipe and our interpretation of it (if necessary). We may also provide substitution or annotation ideas. Remember though, you are the cook, you have the final say, a recipe presents mere….guidelines. I hope you have a good time trying out some historic dishes just like we do. If something doesn’t turn out and you would like recommendations, let us know, or better yet, come and visit and see how it is done.
If you would like to learn techniques for cooking on a word burning stove or hints on baking fresh bread, check out our education classes in the fall and winter months. In these classes an instructor guides you step by step in completing a historic meal.
