The Historical Cooking Guild of the Catawba Valley

Welcome to the premier hearth cooking organization of North Carolina! The Cooking Guild was founded in 1997 in Charlotte, NC. We specialize in authentic and historically accurate methods of 18th century hearth cooking and other historical foodways.

We meet twice a month at the President James K. PolkĀ State Historic SiteĀ in Pineville, NC, as well as traveling to a variety of locations to provide demonstrations and historical lectures. Contact us to request more information.

We welcome the public to observe, ask questions and share insights on historical foodways.

The Historical Cooking Guild of the Catawba Valley is a committee of the Mecklenburg Historical Association.
