Primitive Cooking

One day class.

9 am to 6 pm

This class in truly a feast in the making. Regardless of the years of camping you have done, or if you are just getting started, this class will give you the skills to be a stone age chef! We have proudly offered this class since 1998.

Join us for our very ab-original cooking class; often imitated, but never duplicated! Our Primitive Cooking course will teach the food preparation skills of our ancestors as we use traditional cooking skills to create a feast for the mind and belly. Cooking techniques will be taught and during the course students will construct and use a stone fireplace with reflector, a stone oven and a steam pit. Other cooking methods to be covered are rock frying, coal baking, rock boiling in wooden bowls and a deer hide, clay baking and an Algonquin style green wood grill "Barbecue". Eating utensils, cooking containers and other subjects will be covered. A lunch, snacks and a dinner will also be part of this course. The menu for this course uses some modern ingredients and some traditional ones; and will include many kinds of meat prepared in different ways.

The October 10, 2021 class is now FULL. Please look for this course again in 2022

The course tuition is $127 per person.
