Cooking in an open heath at Point of Honor

Historic Point of Honor, in Lynchburg, VA hosted a “hearth cooking class” this past Friday.  This seasonal demonstration presented regional recipes and cooking techniques from the early 19th century using an open hearth and brick ovens in a reconstructed plantation kitchen, sited where the origianl once stood.  The bill of fare included roasted chicken, stewed and boiled vegetables, baked and fried foods and  a unique dessert.  Participants were able to assist and watch Rachel as she literally cooked over a “stove.”

Point of Honor is located 3 blocks from The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast in historic Daniels Hill.  Completed in 1815 by Dr. George Cabell this Federal-style mansion has been carefully restored to preserve the classical designs of the early 19th century.  Named after duels that legend says took place on this fine point of land, Point of Honor has been home to many of Lynchburg’s remarkable citizens.

The mansion is part of the Lynchburg Museum system and is open daily.  An additional “hearth cooking class” will be held on Friday March 23, 2012 between 11:00am-2:00pm.  Advance registration is required.  Call Point of Honor at 434.455.4424 for more details or to reserve your space.
