Dear Portland. I am coming to visit you in just a couple short weeks. I am going to eat a Pok Pok (fish! sauce! wings!), dig for treasure at the bins and attend my 10 year college reunion out in Walla Walla (I’m still not certain how I got to be this old).
I am also going to teach a canning class at Kitchen Cru. It’s on Tuesday, October 4 from 7-9 p.m. and costs $60 to attend. We’ll make pear vanilla jam and I’ll answer every canning question you have (even the ones you think are too silly to ask. Nothing is too silly).
I’ll bring some bread and goat cheese and you’ll swoon when you taste hot pear vanilla jam on top of crusty baguette and creamy chevre. You’ll even get to meet my mom.
