Dutch Oven Cooking “101” Coming to Heritage Park

Hopkins County folks love outdoor cooking of all kinds.

This includes the 300-year-old European tradition of cooking over coals in iron utensils called Dutch ovens. Rick Wilson and Carlie Penson, officers in the Hopkins County Historical Society, are getting ready to teach a new class of Dutch Oven cooks the ins-and-outs of this practical skill.  The instruction will be held under the trees inside Hopkins County Heritage Park at 416 North Jackson Street in Sulphur Springs. Class starts at 8am on Saturday April 15. Cost for the 4-hour class is only $15, payable when you arrive. You do not have to bring anything, but if you have your own utensils you are welcome to bring them. Food, water, wood, aprons, supplies and paper goods will be provided. Students will all learn to prepare a meal.  A tasting of the dishes will conclude the class. Contact Rick Wilson at 903-885-9692 or Carlie Penson at 903-383-2648 if you have questions.
