Two Weekends in One: Festival Friday and Irish Weekend – September 28 – 30

This weekend is unusual.  There are two separate themes running this upcoming weekend.  On Festival Friday at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, students come in and the festival provides a number of educational opportunities.  For more information, you can download their program HERE.

For Festival Friday, I will have four lecture based demonstrations at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.  My cooking will be very limited that day as all of my assistants will be unable to attend.  Festival Friday will provide ample opportunity to speak with me one-on-one. 

For Irish weekend, you can download the program HERE.  My shows for the final weekend are:

11am:  Spice making demonstrations

12:30pm:  Soda Bread and Irish Stew cooking demonstration

2pm: History of Spices

4pm: Cooking with Whiskey cooking demonstration

5pm: Seasoning your cast iron pots

This is the final show of the season.

Alice uses cast iron pots and wooden utensils and keeps the recipes as close to the traditional recipe as possible. She even utilizes a fire pit located outside her home to test authentic recipes. For more information about Alice the Cook, visit her website at In future blogs, I will offer recipes, kitchen hints, and historical cooking lessons.
