Focus weekend – Cooking at the Quarters

April 4 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

April 4th & 5th, 10a – 4p:
Enslaved men and women, 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! Contact Ben Baumgartner for more information at 936-878-2214 x248.
