Pioneer Woman Museum to Host Dutch Oven Cooking Class Sept. 20

PONCA CITY, Okla. -- Learn how versatile and fun cooking in Dutch ovens can be at the Pioneer Woman Museum's introduction to Dutch oven cooking class on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014. Participants will learn how to select and care for an oven, and discover the many resources and recipes available. Participants will also cook in the ovens, sample the results in a buffet style meal and learn cleaning and storage tips. Dutch ovens, typically cast iron pots with legs, have been in use for hundreds of years. While these pots offer a historic way to prepare food when outdoors, they also are great for backyard entertaining, modern camping and picnicking.
Instructor Luann Sewell Waters is the state coordinator for the Oklahoma Leopold Education Project, a conservation and history educator and a Dutch oven cooking instructor. She is an engaging presenter and inclusive teacher who wants her students to enjoy what they are learning. Waters is a popular teacher with in-depth knowledge on a variety of outdoor education themes. She has presented a number of programs at the museum since its reopening last year.

The Dutch oven cooking class will be held on the grounds of the Pioneer Woman Museum on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 12–4 p.m. and is $15 per participant. Preregistration is required and all class members must be at least 13 years of age. Contact the Pioneer Woman Museum for more information and to register for the class at 580-765-6108 or piown@okhistory.org.
