Heart to Hearth Cookery
Bolton Mansion Hearth Cooking Class


This video was taken at Bolton Mansion's Hearth Cooking Class with Susan McLellan Plaisted and is used with their permission.

The six hour cooking class includes foods from colonial times prepared over Bolton Mansion's open hearth. Susan McLellan Plaisted provides the members of the class with detailed instruction of the food cooking preparation, information about what is required to cook with an open fire and embers, and interesting stories about the life and times of people in the 1700's. A sit down dinner of all food prepared during the class concludes the interesting and entertaining class. Colonial cooking classes are an ongoing event at Bolton Mansion.
