Book Signing at the Fair Food Farmstand at Reading Terminal Market this Saturday!

PbtP stack

Friends! The season of book signings, canning demos, and weekly reminders about all my crazy travels are upon us!

For my first official, post-release event, I’m staying close to home. Locals will find me at the Fair Food Farmstand at Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia this Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 10 am to 2 pm. I’ll be standing behind the cheese case, handing out tastes of my honey sweetened strawberry jam and signing books.

We’ll have copies of the new book on hand for sale, as well as a few of the old one as well (I’m also happy to sign copies of the books that you might already own). Please come out, pick up a book, and say hi! I hope to see a number of you there!

P.S. My cold is finally gone, so you can come out, safe in the knowledge that I won’t pass an early spring bug along to you!

Preserving by the Pint at the IACP Book & Blog Fest

PbtP stack

My new book doesn’t officially come out until March 25 but unofficially, things are starting to get under way. I’ve heard through the grapevine that Amazon started shipping some of pre-ordered copies this week. Fillmore Container has a copy and posted a sneak peek earlier today. And I’m doing my first event for this book on Saturday.

I’ll be at the IACP conference in Chicago this weekend and on Saturday from 7-9 pm, I’ll be signing books at the conference’s Book & Blog Festival. If you’re not attending the conference, tickets for the Book & Blog Fest are $35 per person. It’s a little bit pricy, but there will be a number of cookbook authors there, so if you’re a cookbook fiend, it’s a good chance to see a number of your favorite folks all in one place.

I hope to see some of you there!

Free Canning Demo at Williams-Sonoma at the Bellevue

39 | 365

Hey Philadelphia area folks! This Saturday, June 29, I’m going to be doing a apricot jam demonstration and book signing at the Williams-Sonoma at the Bellvue (the entrance to the store is on Walnut Street, half a block west of Broad Street).

The demo starts at 1 pm and last about 45 minutes. When the jam is finished cooking, I’ll have tastes of it available, as well as books to sell and sign. I’m also planning on bringing a couple other jars of goodies from my pantry, so there will be plenty to sample and get you excited about canning up your own summer produce.

This event is totally free and I’d love to see some of you there! If you can’t come, make sure to follow the Williams-Sonoma Philly Twitter account, as they’ll be posting photos from the event.

Canning Demo at Art in the Age

16/365

All month long, some of my jars of preserves have been on display at the Art in the Age store in Old City as part of their The Return of Spring exhibition. The show is coming down soon, but on Tuesday, while my books and jars are still there, I’m going to be stopping by the shop to do an evening canning demo.

If you’re in the area, I’d love for you to swing by (festivities start at 6 pm). I’ll be making a small batch of strawberry vanilla jam, talking about preserving, answering questions, and signing cookbooks. Art in the Age can be found at 116 N. 3rd Street, Philadelphia.

Giveaway: Eat Boutique Breakfast Gift Box

As we head into the winter season, thoughts turn to holiday gifts and tokens for hosts and hostesses. Thanks to my avid canning habit, I always have an assortment of jams, chutneys, and pickles to give to those in the near vicinity, but nearly every year, December catches me by surprise and I find myself running out of time to compile and pack up boxes for my further flung loved ones.

That’s where Eat Boutique comes in. They create thoughtful collections of small batch preserves, mixes, candies, syrups, and other fancy treats that make wonderful gifts when you can’t find the time to send out your own homemade goodies.

Because Maggie and her team at Eat Boutique are awesome, they’ve given me one of their Breakfast Gift Boxes to giveaway here (it’s an extra special weekend giveaway!). This box contains Kenyon’s Apple and Spice Pancake Mix, Nutting Farm Maple Syrup, Early Bird Sweet and Salty Granola, Sqirl Cashmere Nectarine Jam, and Greenpoint Honey. It costs $55 (the price includes shipping) and would be a tasty treat for someone who deserves a particularly sweet morning during the holidays.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share your favorite holiday breakfast.
  2. Comments will close at 12 noon east coast time on Monday, November 19, 2012. Winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog over the weekend.
  3. Giveaway open to US residents only.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post. I do not accept submissions via email.

One more thing! If you’ve not yet gotten yourself a copy of my book, they’re giving one away over on the Eat Boutique blog (if you’re not reading their blog regularly, you should really start. They feature lots of gorgeously photographed recipes and tutorials). Finally, for you Boston-area folks, I’m going to be signing copies of my book (along with a handful of other cookbook authors) at the Eat Boutique Holiday Market on December 9. I hope to see some of you there!
