“Camp Cookery Then and Now,” a workshop led by the students of WCU’s Parks and Recreation Management Club, will be held at the Mountain Heritage Center from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1.
All WCU students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend the workshop, which will begin with students from the Parks and Recreation Management Program leading a discussion about the contributions of Horace Kephart to Western North Carolina. The students also will talk about cooking in the backcountry and how Kephart would have prepared meals on his camping trips. They will then compare outdoor cooking methods of the past and present.
With the use of backpacking stoves, the students will lead the cooking of cornbread and tortilla soup outside the Mountain Heritage Center. Small samples will be available for attendees.
The Mountain Heritage Center is located at 161 Hunter Library. No registration is necessary. For more information, contact the museum at 828-227-7129.
