Cooking at the Quarters
04/17/2021 - 04/18/2021, 12:00 am
Location: Barrington Living History Farm
Enslaved men and women at Barrington, such as Jerry, Mary, 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. This is a focus weekend at Barrington.
