About me

Location United States
Introduction Please contact me at ( patreber@hearthcook.com ) with any comments or corrections. I am a culinary historian interested in researching foodways and cooking apparatus – stew stoves, bake ovens, Rumfords, steam kitchens, and early gas, steam and coal stoves/rages. For 20 years I have demonstrated and taught bake oven and hearth cooking. My writing includes 20-40 page info/recipe class booklets, longer subject booklets, newsletter articles and now articles for my blog. I also do extensive research for my talks on Lemonade, Chocolate, Hearth to Fireless Cookers and other PowerPoint presentations.
