Setting a Good Table: Recipes from the Tobacco Farm
Saturday June 8 – 1 to 4 p.m.
Without a doubt, women were very important on the tobacco farm. Not only did they labour as much and as hard as the men, but they were also responsible for keeping the team fed. Many of these recipes had to be hearty, easy, inexpensive and delicious. We will try our hand at a few of the more common, a few of the unusual and see when we sample, imaging how good it must have tasted after a hard day’s work.
Registration Fee: $35/person
