Campbell Cuisine » Cook (and eat) Like a Campbell at Dierbergs

A place set­ting of Vir­gini­a’s chi­na, crys­tal and napkin.

It’s no secret the Camp­bells liked their food.

We have Vir­gini­a’s cook­book from the 1840s, Camp­bell let­ters are lit­tered with ref­er­ences to food (and drink), and we have records of  pay­ments to St. Louis’ finest restau­rants. On top of the doc­u­ments, this house has an impres­sive col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal cook­ing equip­ment and china.

This hol­i­day sea­son, if you want to get a taste of his­to­ry and the Camp­bell lifestyle, you have the chance to take a class at Dier­bergs School of Cook­ing fea­tur­ing a menu inspired by Vir­gini­a’s recipes. Here’s the offi­cial descrip­tion with links to reg­is­ter imme­di­ate­ly following:
