VILLE PLATTE -- Visitors are invited to Chicot State Park in Ville Platte on Saturday, February 2, at 9:00 a.m. to noon, to learn about Dutch oven cooking.
Bill Ryan and members of several other chapters of the Louisiana Dutch Oven Society will have a Dutch oven gathering (DOG) in Chicot State Park
at Pavilion 1, to demonstrate the early pioneer cooking technique.
Participants will be able to sample the food and learn first hand how to use these outdoor ovens to cook a full meal. "This program will help
familiarize visitors with the culture of the area" Kim Hollier, site naturalist.
