Friends! It’s hard to believe, but I have just nine events left in 2016. Help me make this final handful of classes, demos, and gatherings fun and successful! Mark your calendars, tell your friends, and come out and say hi!
Saturday, October 8 (South Philadelphia)
You’ll find me at Fante’s in the Italian Market from 11 am to 3 pm. I’ll be demonstrating how to make pear vanilla jam (a fresh demo starts every hour on the hour) and will have samples for tasting. I’ll also be signing books and answering canning questions. If you’ve never been to Fante’s, it is an independently owned kitchenwares store that is very much worth a visit.
Saturday, October 15 (Glen Mills, PA)
I’m teaching a canning class at Terrain at Styer’s. This gorgeous shop and garden center is a fabulous place to visit during the fall (so many gourds and pumpkins). In this class, we’ll collaboratively make a large batch of Pear Jam with Cinnamon and Vanilla and everyone will go home with a small jar. $25. Sign up here.
Sunday, October 16 (Chestnut Hill, PA)
The Bloomfield Farm at the Morris Arboretum is having their Fall Farm Day and I will be there from 12 noon to 4 pm demonstrating how to make honey sweetened jams and signing books.
Saturday, October 29 (Chestnut Hill, PA)
I’ll be back at the Morris Arboretum, this time for a canning class! In this morning workshop, I’ll show you how to make honey sweetened jams that are set with Pomona’s Pectin. Everyone who takes this class will go home with a small jar of the jam we made in class, along with a packet of information so that they can go home and do it themselves! 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. $40-45. Sign up here.
Thursday, November 3 (Exeter, PA)
I’m returning to the Reading area for a autumn-themed canning demonstration at the Exeter Community Library. I’ll be making honey-sweetened Cranberry Apple Jam and will have books available for sale and signature. 6-8 pm. Free.
Saturday, November 5 (Lawrence Township, NJ)
Fellow food writer Tenaya Darlington and I will be at Cherry Grove Farm for their annual Cow Parade Festival. I’ll do a short canning demo, and Tenaya will pair some of my preserves with the cheeses they make at Cherry Grove. We’ll both also have books on hand for sale and signature. Time TBD.
Tuesday, November 15 (Philadelphia)
I’m teaming up with the crew from Urban Farmer for a night of preserve-inspired menu items. More details to come! 6-9 pm.
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 1 (Easton, PA)
My final class of the year is at the Easton Public Market. We’ll make apple preserves and everyone will go home with a small jar of the preserves made in class. 7 to 9 pm. $30. Sign up here.
