Explore 17th-century cooking in the daily life of English soldiers, middle-class colonists and Virginia Indians. Demonstrations at the Virginia Indian site will feature the smoking of meat and making of harvest stew and corn cakes. Historical interpreters will demonstrate how soldiers made small rations of salted bacon, peas and oatmeal appealing through additives of bread, cheese and yard vegetables. Middle-class cooking will be featured at the re-created plantation of John and Alice Proctor to highlight a typical English autumn meal.
