Susan McLellan Plaisted MS RD CSP LDN, is the Proprietress of Heart to Hearth Cookery, a food history business based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She offers demonstrations of 17th century through 19th century Colonial American and European cooking methods, practices, and receipts (recipes), as well as pre-European-contact and post-European-contact Native American foodways. Her repertoire ranges from open pit, through down hearth, raised hearth, and cookstove cooking. She conducts hands-on workshops and classes for both children and adults at many historic sites and museums in the Delaware Valley region and beyond. With her diverse historic foodways experience, she offers many slide presentations and lectures. The “Hearthside with Susan McLellan Plaisted” educational DVD series is her newest venture.
With her research having spanned
the United States, Canada, England and Scotland, she has amassed
an amazing inventory of receipts, techniques, attire, and equipment
to correctly interpret and demonstrate Scottish, Welsh, English,
Dutch, German, Swedish, Colonial, and Native American foodways practices
from many periods of history. She also provides programming in late
18th century English and American ship-board cooking.
