NPT's "Do It Ye Self" Series:
"Cooking in Beehive Ovens" is Sat., March 4, 2017

Back by popular demand is historic fireplace expert Richard Irons for another session of “Cooking in Beehive Ovens” on Saturday, March 4, 2016, 3:30-5:30 p.m. at 6 Independent Street, Newburyport.

Prompt registration is advised via the Events page of NPT’s website,, as last year’s beehive oven session, part of NPT’s popular “Do It Ye Self” series, sold out in less than 24 hours. Registration is just $20 per person for members. ($30 per for non-members.) Registration is limited to 18 attendees.

The program includes an overview of brick oven construction; the evolution of beehive ovens in New England; an explanation of how the oven works; and a real-time cooking demonstration – with hands-on participation.

This month's venue, a restored Georgian home (c. 1725) with a fireplace and oven just right for the presentation, was generously volunteered for the event by the owners, supportive members of the Newburyport Preservation Trust.

The presenter, restoration mason Richard Irons of Limerick, Maine, has worked on historic houses and museum properties in the northeast U.S. for more than 40 years.
