Step back in time with the "Historic Foodways and Hearth Cooking Workshop" at Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island on December 17, 2011. Explore what it meant to "eat local" in
1790's Rhode Island. Working from Amelia Simmons' American Cookery,
the first American cookbook, originally published in 1796, guests will
prepare several receipts at the hearth using produce raised on the
farm before sitting down to enjoy dinner by candlelight. Workshop is from 4pm-8pm.
