Open Hearth Cooking Guild

The warmth of the fire, smells of roasting tenderloin, the tastes you may remember from grandmother’s kitchen described by her as “an old family recipe”. Those are just some of the sensory rewards of joining the Louisa County Hearth Cooking Guild for an adventure in hearth cooking at the Heritage Farm. Come experience the enjoyment of hearth cooking and taste the delicious fruits of your labor! Seasonal meats and vegetables whet the appetite for scrumptious deserts. Class size is limited to 10 so everyone has plenty to do and plenty to eat! These classes are for ages 18 and older and are $40 per person. You must register through Louisa County Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
