2016 Classes and Events


Tuesday, November 15 (Philadelphia)
I’m teaming up with modern steakhouse Urban Farmer for a night designed to showcase Naturally Sweet Food in Jars. From 6-9 pm, you’ll be able to order a special three-course menu inspired by the book. The full menu is available for $50 or a la carte. It will include Salmon Crudo with parsley-fennel relish ($16), Pork Tenderloin glazed with apricot-gochujang barbecue sauce and served with daikon-carrot pickle ($32), Poached Pear Shortbread with cardamom-pear jam and vanilla ice cream ($9)

I’ll also be on hand with books available for sale and signature. It will be a really fun night of eating and I do hope that some of you come out!

Wednesday, November 16 (Glassboro, NJ)
My last library demo of the year is at the Glassboro branch of the Gloucester County Library. I’ll show you how to make a naturally sweetened autumn-themed preserve and will have books on hand for sale and signature. 7 to 8:30 pm. Free.


Thursday, December 8 (Easton, PA)
My final class of the year is at the Easton Public Market. We’ll make Maple-sweetened Cranberry Apple Jam and everyone will go home with a small jar of the preserves made in class. 7 to 9 pm. $30. Sign up here.

Sunday, December 11 (Philadelphia)
And, for my final event of the year, I’ll be doing a canning demo at the Hazon Food Festival. I’ll be there signing books in the marketplace and to offer a pickling workshop. The event runs from 10 am to 6:30 and the full day registration costs $25 for adults, $15 for students, and $10 for kids (they also have family packages on offer).
