Mangia, mangia, mangia! But before you can eat, you have to learn how to cook! The Barony of Settmour Swamp invites you to learn all about creating feasts at our Cooking Collegium on June 28th, from 10 am to 10 pm at St. Paul's Church in Flemington, NJ.
We have classes to satisfy your brain and your stomach, for beginner chefs to advanced ones. Throughout the day, cooking, brewing, and herb related classes will be taught. We will have three types of classes: technique and theory, tasting (sampling foods), and hands-on (cooking or prepping food). And everyone will be a chef, as the food prepped in the hands-on classes will be served throughout the day buffet style, with a large buffet feast at the end of the day.
Did I mention the 25-foot long outdoor grill pit? So there will be many outdoor cooking classes. The day's activities will also include various roundtable discussions during lunch, an iron chef competition, as well as dancing and entertainment.
The site is dry. Also scented candles and incenses are not allowed. There will be a room set aside for children's activities, but parents must be in attendance. Due to the nature of some of the classes, parents must make arrangements to have their children watched at all times. Various marshal and A&S activities will also be offered throughout the day. Please check http://settmourswamp.eastkingdom.org for updated class schedule and activities.
