Dutch Oven Cooking Workshop Scheduled for Saturday November 10th

We know the easy ones don’t we?  Arkansas’s state bird is the mocking bird.  Arkansas’s state gem is the diamond, but did you know that Arkansas has an official state cooking vessel?  Well, we do, the Dutch oven.  Arkansans have been cooking in these deep cast iron pots for generations.  Embrace your Arkansas heritage today by learning some traditions of the natural state through a Dutch Oven Cooking Workshop at Hobbs State Park.  (For some reason, anything cooked in a Dutch oven always taste wonderful!)

Park Interpreter, Chelsea Porter, will be leading a hands-on workshop Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to teach the art of Dutch oven cooking at the Hobbs State Park Visitor Center.  Participants will learn how to care for cast iron and will cook a three course meal to enjoy together.  Participants will also receive a Dutch Oven Cooking guidebook.  Pre-registration is required. The workshop is limited to the first 14 participants.    

·    Cost - $40/person

·    Registration and pre-payment required.   

To register call: 479-789-5000
