Slowly but surely, my summer teaching schedule is shaping up. I’m not going to be doing as much teaching or traveling this year as I did last, but I’m committed to offering an array of classes in the Philadelphia area and beyond. There are a couple of classes I want to point out right now, as I think both of these offerings are going to fill up fast and I want you to know about them.

The first is a sauerkraut workshop next Monday, March 16 from 6-8 pm at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center. In this workshop, I’ll show you how to make a basic sauerkraut using my single quart technique. We’ll talk easy fermentation and I’ll share some of my favorite ways to use homemade kraut once you’ve got it. The class costs just $10 and you can sign up here.

The other class I want to make sure you all know about is my annual spring preserving workshop at the Morris Arboretum’s Bloomfield Farm on Saturday, May 16 from 10 am to 12 noon. I’ll be teaching about low sugar preserving using Pomona’s Pectin. This class a great way to refresh your canning knowledge for the coming season. It costs $40 for Arboretum members and $45 for non-members. Register here.

The rest of my confirmed classes can be found here. If you want me to come and teach a class for your church group, home schooling co-op or other gathering (preferably within an hour’s drive of Philadelphia), I am open to inquiries. Drop me a note here.

Sharing is caring!

  • I’m in Alabama. How can I find out about how to make a basic sauerkraut using your single quart technique, easy fermentation and ways to use homemade kraut once you’ve got it.

  • hi there,
    Good to have you back!! I wondered if any of the classes would recorded and made available on the site?
    I live just over an hours drive from Philadelphia……well Leeds, West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom (England) if the truth be told. So might be a problem getting there!!!

    Yours Hopefully

    1. Hi Richard! None of the classes I’m currently teaching are going to be recorded and streamed, but I’m working on developing a series of online classes that will be streamable.

  • Hi Marisa – I attended this class last night and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it! I had to run out to catch a bus (to South Philly, I’m the one who lives on McClellan Street!) so I failed to do so in person.

    I checked out the other blog you mentioned, Phickle, and was delighted to see that Amanda Feifer is doing a veggie fermentation 101 at Culture Works on March 23. I’ve registered. Thanks so much for mentioning her blog.

    1. Thanks so much for coming out last night, Maureen! And I’m so glad that you registered for Amanda’s class! I’m certain that you’ll enjoy it!
