Hi friends! The last six weeks have flown by in a blur. It has been such a pleasure to go to so many places and meet so many of you! My book tour is starting to slow down, as my pregnancy gets further along and the burdens of travel get harder to weather.
However, just because I’m winding down doesn’t mean I’m done completely. I still have a handful of events to share with you! Here’s what’s still to come!
May 21 (Philadelphia, PA): Free canning class at the Brewerytown Community Garden. I’ll talk you through the creation of a batch of strawberry jam and will have samples for all who come. 6-8 pm. Details here.
May 22 (Glen Mills, PA): Cooking demo and book talk with WHYY at Terrain. There will be snacks and cocktails and the registration fee includes a copy of The Food in Jars Kitchen. Click here to sign up.
May 28 (Haddonfield, NJ): I’ll be teaching a canning class at In the Kitchen Cooking School in partnership with the Philadelphia chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. I’ll demo a batch of strawberry jam and then show you how to turn it into a cocktail and tasty vinaigrette. 6:30-8:30 pm. $35 (price includes a copy of The Food in Jars Kitchen). Click here to sign up.

June 6 (Reading, PA): Book talk with snacks at the Exeter Community Library. This is my only trek out to Berks County this season, so if you’re in the area, make sure to come. The event is free and I’ll have copies of my books available for sale and signature. 6:30-8 pm.
June 8 (Lampeter, PA): Food preservation retreat with Fillmore Container! This one-day event is currently sold out, but the waiting list is short, so if you want to get yourself on the list and hope for a spot, the odds are good! More details here!
June 13 (Philadelphia, PA): Jam and Cocktail class with Andre Darlington at the Free Library of Philadelphia. I’ll demonstrate how to make a pair of early summer jams and Andre will turn them into tasty cocktails. 6-8 pm. Click here to sign up.
June 21-23 (Rhinebeck, NY): This is my annual, weekend-long food preservation workshop at the Omega Institute. This is my final event for the season before I hunker down and wait for the birth of my twins. I probably won’t be able to teach this workshop again for a few years, so if you’ve been thinking about participating, do it now. We’ll make 12-14 preserves in a collaborative and fun setting.
