  • Warm Up with Brunswick Stew

    by Casey | Posted on October 10th, 2012

    Brunswick stew is a culinary tradition that dates back to 1828 on Virginia’s Nottaway River where Dr. Creed Haskins’ cook prepared a pot for a hunting party, utilizing fresh ingredients nearby … squirrel.

    The stew is historically made in huge cast iron pots over an open flame in quantities large enough to feed entire communities. Rest assured, however, that the meat base nowadays is chicken rather than squirrel.

    For a taste of authentic Virginia tradition, make your way to one of these upcoming Brunswick Stew festivals. There will be more than enough to quiet your hunger on site as well as to take home for later.

    • October 13: Taste of Brunswick Festival & Cook-Off in Alberta, Brunswick County – This is the World Championship Brunswick Stew Cook-Off and as a taster, it’s you who truly reaps the reward. Pair this feast with a genuine festival atmosphere of arts and crafts, wagon rides, Bluegrass and antique tractors, and it’s a classic fall day in Virginia.girl eating brunswick stew
