Thanks to a 2022 grant from the Union County HEART (History, Education, and Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant Program, Hearth Cooking is returning to the Merchants and Drovers Tavern Museum!
On a very warm day in August, our intrepid volunteers and board members participated in a “practice run” of traditional hearth cooking in our historic kitchen, in anticipation of the upcoming Four Centuries in a Weekend event, coming on October 15, 2022. The Bill of Fare for the day was roasted chicken, sweet potatoes, three sisters soup and of course, for dessert, an apple pie. And yes, it was REALLY hot in that kitchen!
Please mark your calendars for Union County’s Four Centuries in a Weekend, coming up on Oct. 15 and 16th. Our museum will be open both days, but the Hearth Cooking Demo will ONLY be on Saturday. For more info – check out event!
