First, you’ll talk to a Compagnies Franches soldier about life at Louisbourg and witness the smoke and noise during a musket firing demonstration. Next, you’ll visit one of Louisbourg’s finest homes where a kitchen servant awaits your arrival to give you a glimpse into her life serving the elite. She will show you how hot chocolate was prepared in the kitchen–she just might put you to work to help her make it too! Once you learn the art of making this scrumptious beverage in the French style, you will then enjoy yourself the benefits of a complimentary cup of Heritage™ hot chocolate.
