SAVANNAH-Oatland Island Wildlife Center is planning a special hands-on “Open Fire Cooking Workshop” on Jan. 31.
All scouting leaders, youth or church group leaders, teachers, park staff or otherwise outdoor enthusiasts are invited to attend.
The workshop will be conducted by Gary Lester of “Open Fire Forge” in Connelly Springs, N.C.
Lester is a blacksmith and all-around traditional living skills teacher/entertainer. With a gift for gab and a down-home Appalachian sense of humor, this workshop promises to be great fun, as well as educational.
The workshop will cover such topics as choosing, seasoning and use of quality cast iron cookware, firewood choices, cooking techniques, windbreaks, recipes and as Lester says, “a few Appalachian curve balls.”
The workshop will be open to anyone over 12 years old and will include a full meal that the participants have created at the end of the day. The workshop will run from approximately 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Price is $45 per person (includes admission to Oatland). The workshop will be limited to the first 25 paid registrants.
To register, contact Annie Quinting at (912) 395-1509 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get your name on the list.
