Museums with hearth cooking demonstrations

Tom Martin and Peggy Gelnett at the Landis Valley Museum. Tom is widely respected as a teacher and writer of the well used Landis Valley Cookbook: Pennsylvania German Foods & Traditions. Each year he conducts two four day advanced bake oven and hearth cooking sessions for the Landis Valley Museum Institute. He has an extensive knowledge of Pennsylvania Dutch foodways as well as other Pa. foods. Landis Valley has several working bake ovens and hearths and is well worth a visit.
