Things have been pretty quiet on the event front for me lately (what with the book writing and all), but I’ve got a fun event coming up next week. I’ll be at the 4th annual Philly Farm and Food Fest at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from 11 am to 4 pm. This event brings together farmers, food producers, and other makers from around the region for a delicious day of tasting, learning, and shopping.
I’ll be there to sign books and offer a jam making demonstration, but I’m not the only local author who will be there. A whole group of us are taking over a classroom and offering signings at the Cookbook Stall’s corner. Here’s the demo schedule and the signing schedule.
11:15 – Meat Lite with Tara Matazara Desmond and Joy Manning: How to get the most bang from your local meat dollar
12:15 – Stumped for Sides with Tara Matazara Desmond
1:15 – Preserving with Natural Sweeteners with me, Marisa McClellan
2:15 – Going Beyond Kombucha with Amanda Feifer
3:15 – Pasta from Liguria with Jeff Michaud
Cookbook Signing Schedule
11 am – Jeremy Nolen & Marisa McClellan
12 noon – George Hummel & Allyson Kramer
1 pm – Tara Matazara Desmond & Joy Manning
2 pm – Matt Teacher & Jeff Michaud
3 pm – Aliza Green
Tickets are available now and can be purchased here. General admission tickets are $20 and kids 12 and under are free.
Oh, and there’s just one other thing going on that day. From 10-11 am, there’s a special Industry Preview Hour for wholesale buyers. It’s a great opportunity for folks to discover new products or resources for their businesses (with coffee and pastry from La Colombe). If you’re in that category, leave a comment on this post so I can send you a discount code that will get you $25 off the $40 admission fee.
