My husband and I frequently like to do cooking classes while on vacation. While researching the area, we saw that Coggeshall had a hearth cooking class and signed up for it. Before the class started we were able to walk around the grounds and see all the buildings and animals. The class itself is all about replicating cooking as it was done in 1799. This includes going out to the garden to harvest the vegetables, going to the barn to search for eggs, and cooking in the original hearth. The educational aspect and the hands on experience were the highlights of the class. The part that we weren't expecting was eating in the dark and cleaning with 1799 soap. Overall it was a good experince, but be prepared that everything will be done as it was in 1799!
