HAMILTON, ON - The cooks and gardeners at Dundurn National Historic Site invite the public to join them for a fun hands-on family event in Dundurn Castle’s historic kitchen and garden on Sun. Jul. 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 610 York Blvd.
Children and their adults will enjoy making an 1850s recipe in the historic kitchen below stairs led by costumed cook demonstrators. While the historic culinary masterpiece is baking in the 19th century cast iron range, participants will engage in a special activity in the beautiful Kitchen Garden. An interactive scavenger hunt in Dundurn Park will lead guests to a tasting of the historic recipe they prepared in the kitchen.
“We offer unique experiences in the kitchen where we can deeply connect to our Canadian food history and discover period cooking methods that invite celebration and create community.”
Janet Kronick, Historic Kitchen Coordinator, Dundurn National Historic Site
