Famous for their appearance in Craig Claiborne's column in the New York Times and in four nationally distributed magazines, the cooks at the Miller-Cory House demonstrate the exacting art of food preparation on the open hearth.

The Museum Shop, open during Museum hours, contains educational materials, colonial reproductions and handcrafts, including cookbooks of colonial recipes prepared by Miller-Cory Volunteers.
