Have you ever wanted to learn the proper way to cook with herbs and wondered what the history of those herbs might be? Chieftains Museum and The Season Events are teaming up in March to host a cooking demonstration to answer all your culinary questions about herbs.

The demonstration will take place on Thursday, March 28th from 11am-12:30pm at The Season Events, located at 300 Glenn Milner Blvd in Rome. Participants will work alongside The Season Events chefs to prepare various dishes made with herbs while they learn the history of these tasty plants, then enjoy their handiwork for lunch.

This program is part of a series of programs to be presented by Chieftains Museum in 2019 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Major Ridge coming to the house that is now the museum. Other programs will include a new archaeology dig on the campus, a presentation by author Charles Frazier, performances by Cherokee dancers and musicians and much more.

The cost for this event is $20 per person with a limit of 20 participants for the program. Participants must wear a head covering (hat or hair net) and closed-toe shoes to work in The Season Events kitchen.

Reservations must be made by March 21st. Priority registration will be given to Chieftains Museum members with a current 2019 membership. Chieftain Museum memberships begin at $20 for students and can be purchased over the phone, via postal mail, or in person at the museum. Membership forms can be found on the Chieftains Museum website at www.chieftainsmuseum.org.
