HMS Captain Cook Birthplace Museum 21st/22nd July UPDATE
Post date: Jul 13, 2018 11:30:57 AM
Our cooks; Jen, Lynne and Jean endured a very hot day by the stove, along with Ron who maintained a steady supply of wood for the flames.
On the menu was a range of roasted meats and our now-famous sea sausage, along with fried plantain and home-made bread.
And for dessert ? Caramelised custard for which Jean used a hot salamander to sear the sugared surface.
Our purser, ship's carpenter, surgeon , surveyor and sailing master were placed inside and out of the museum with Able Seaman Gray engaging with the public.
Many thanks to the good people of Marton-in-Cleveland,and environs, for their interest and their company.
It's been many a long year since HMS performed at the museum, so we were delighted to return there and use our new cooking equipment for the first time.
