1 | The Course

Often imitated, but never duplicated - our Primitive Cooking class is a feast in the making. 

Spend the morning with us, as we cook a tasty lunch for the entire class. Then try different culinary techniques in the afternoon, as we prepare a feast for our dinner. 

Our Primitive Cooking course will teach the food preparation skills of our ancestors as we use traditional cooking skills to create a feast for the mind and belly.

  • Cooking techniques will be taught using modern food ingredients (store-bought meat, vegetables, and staple foods like flour and oil) and will include the following skills:

  • Build a stone oven from rocks and mud

  • Dig a steam pit for in-ground cooking

  • Fry some crispy treats with the method of rock frying

  • Bake foods in the coals of the fire

  • Try rock boiling for soup or tea

  • Build an Algonquin style green wood grill to "Barbecue" meat and vegetables

  • and learn much much more!

  • Lunch and dinner are provided!
