Foods and Feasts of Colonial Virginia - American Revolution Museum at Yorktown

Thursday, November 28, 2019

Explore centuries-old culinary practices and cooking techniques of 18th-century Virginia!

Long before microwaves, electric stoves and refrigerators, food was prepared in clay pots and iron kettles over hot coals and preserved by smoking and salt curing. This Thanksgiving holiday, explore foodways of 18th-century Virginia during “Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia,” a three-day event beginning on Thanksgiving Day.
