Cooking at the Quarters
05/01/2021 - 05/02/2021, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
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.
