Cooking in the Quarter
August 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Enslaved women and men, such as Mary, Jerry, Willis, and Jake, were an integral part of the full story of Barrington. Cooking a hot meal after a hard day of work was a daily routine and typically included their ration of cured pork and cornmeal supplemented with seasonal vegetables from their garden. Come join us as we demonstrate cooking a traditional meal in the style of enslaved foodways using period ingredients and methods!
