Bon Appetit! French Dutch Oven Cooking Workshop at Davidsonville Historic State Park

There is just something about food cooked outdoors that makes it even tastier! The staff at our Arkansas State Parks really knows a thing or two (or 50!) about cooking outdoors, especially in Dutch ovens. This weekend, the staff at Davidsonville Historic State Park in Pocahontas takes Dutch oven cooking to a whole new level with a workshop focusing on the French influence on early Arkansas foodways.

The park offers Bon Appetit: A Dutch Oven Cooking Workshop tomorrow, March 16. Participants will learn the history of French influence in early Arkansas kitchens as well as make several French dishes in a Dutch oven, including French roast beef, French bread and tarte tatin. Attendees will enjoy a French-inspired dinner following the workshop.

Last year, the park’s Italian Night workshops were a huge hit, and this year’s salute to France promises to be as popular. A few reservations are STILL available for tomorrow’s workshop. Contact our friends at Davidsonville Historic State Park at 870-892-4708 for more information or to reserve your space for tomorrow!
