Kitchen demonstration at Cuyler Manor Museum

Visiting Cuyler Manor Museum in Uitenhage with a couple of colleagues last week, we had an opportunity to be shown around the museum grounds and the old manor house by a very enthusiastic Rosie.  Rosie has been working for the museum for years and even though she isn't a trained guide she could just as well have been.  She told us all the stories regarding specific things around the farm yard, but once we got into the manor house she was really in her element.  In the picture she is demonstrating some of the things that were done in the kitchen, amongst others candle making.
