Historic Deerfield hearth.jpg When we visited Historic Deerfield on a warm day last fall for the Table for Ten exhibition (see 'Table for Ten'), we felt sorry for the historic interpreter mopping her brow as she demonstrated open-hearth cookery. We couldn't help but think how much more inviting that fireplace would seem on a cold winter's day. Historic Deerfield had something similar in mind, and has set a series of seven one-day classes in hearth cookery on Saturdays in February and March. Classes will be held in the kitchen of the 1786 Hall Tavern, where guides will demonstrate the cookery and lead discussions on 18th and early 19th century foodways. In return for pitching in, class participants get to sample the foods they help prepare. Registration for each class is $55 ($50 for Historic Deerfield members). For an overview, schedule, and registration form, see the museum's web site, www.historic-deerfield.org or call 413-775-7217.
