I’m taking a break from international travel for the next little while, but I still have a few fun classes and events coming up. Here’s where I’ll be over the next few weeks!
September 25, Hudson, NY
I’m teaching a class at Valley Variety in Hudson, New York. Everyone gets to make a jar of pickled cauliflower and I’ll demonstrate a small batch of pear vanilla jam. We’ll also have some tasty jam, pickle, and cheese pairings for class participants to sample. The class runs from 6:30-8:30 pm and you can sign up by clicking here.
September 30, Philadelphia
It’s the final meal in the series of preserving-focused dinner at High Street at 9 pm. You come, you have a lovely meal, I say a few words about canning and preserving, and you head off into the night. It costs just $25 and you can call (215) 625-0988 to reserve your seat.
October 2, Downingtown, PA
I’ll be demonstrating small batches of jam and book signing at the Growing Roots Partners Farmers Markets, 3-8 pm.
October 3, Old City, Philadelphia
I’ll be at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Old City for a pair of small batch jam demonstrations at their monthly First Friday event. Demos are at 5:30 and 6:45 pm and the evening is entirely free. I’ll have books available for sale and signature. This event will also be livestreamed and once I have the link, I’ll share it.
October 4, South Philadelphia
I’ll be at Fante’s in the Italian Market from 11 am – 2 pm to demonstrate my small batch technique and to sign copies of Preserving by the Pint. This is a free, drop-in event.
October 5, Havertown, PA
I’m teaming up with the nice folks at the Havertown Free Library to teach another hands on class. This time we’re making pickles! The class runs from 2-4 pm and costs just $5 to sign up (it’s a steal of a deal). Click here to sign up.
October 8, Swarthmore, PA
I’ll be teaching a canning class Harvey Oak Mercantile from 6-8 pm. There will be books available for sale and signature. Registration details to come.
October 9, Princeton, NJ
Thanks to a friend who has made all the arrangements, I’m headed to Princeton to offer a batch canning demonstration at the Whole Earth Center. Event is from 7-9 pm and tickets can be obtained here. Books will be available!
October 11, Lancaster, PA
I’m spending a Saturday at Fillmore Container, offering a pair of canning classes in their warehouse. The first class is from 10 am – 12 noon, in which we’ll focus on preserving pears in batches large and small (including information about how to use Pomona’s Pectin). From 1-3 pm, we’ll dig into how to preserve tomatoes, including how to make tomato jam and how to preserve whole peeled tomatoes. To register for both classes (they’re $35 a piece), click here. We’re also going to offer a book signing at the end of the day.
October 12, Cherry Hill, NJ
I’m hopping over the bridge to South Jersey for a small batch jam demonstration and book signing at Williams-Sonoma at the Cherry Hill Mall. The event is from 1-3 pm and is free and open to all.
I just have to mention that reading this Philadelphia-heavy list totally made the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song pop fully formed into my head. That is all. 🙂
You just made me homesick! I just moved to Boston from Cherry Hill. My mall! =[
I just got a twinge of homesickness as well. I just moved from Philly to Phoenix. I’ll spread the word about the events. Maybe I can go vicariously..:-)
