A Kitchen on the Frontier
A Kitchen on the Frontier was inspired by the novel, Journey to an Untamed Land. This true-to-life story is about the first missionaries to settle among the Osages in what would become Oklahoma's featured foods of the frontier.
The hardy pioneer women who carved homes on the untamed prairie did so with simple cooking tools and locally available foods. But they managed to make the mission the most hospitable place in early western settlement. Admiration goes to Amanda Ingles, the cook at the mission, who tamed the west with a hand-carved wooden spoon and heirloom recipes.
