Iron Age Cooking Workshop led by Caroline Nicolay of Pario Gallico at the Scottish Crannog Centre

Special rate for ARCH Supporters: £40

Using replica tools (knives, pots, cauldron) and ingredients that were available during the Iron Age,  prepare and cook a meal over an open first to feed us all for lunch!  

Participants will also be making flatbreads and/or oatcakes choosing ingredients according to their taste, possibly making butter, cooking eggs, fruits and vegetables in embers. Caroline  will try to adapt to what each participant is interested in learning or trying.  

If there is time, you will learn how to wash dishes the historical way and/or how to light a fire with flint and steel.
