These next few weeks are the final big push before I hunker down and start developing recipes again (because, have I mentioned that I’m writing another book? This one is all about preserving with natural sweeteners and I think you guys are going to like it a lot). However, there are still more fun classes and events before the true recipe development begins! Here’s where I’ll be in the coming days.
September 6 – New York City
This Saturday, I’ll be at the Union Square Greenmarket from 11 am to 2 pm, offering up samples of jam and selling/signing copies of both Preserving by the Pint and Food in Jars (of course, I am always happy to sign the copies you already own as well). If you’re in the greater New York City area, I’d love to see you there.
September 9 – Philadelphia
This Pickles Two Ways class is my final session in the series I’ve been teaching all summer for the Weaver’s Way Co-op. The class is held at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse and runs from 7-9 pm. Click here to sign up.
September 11 – Toronto, Canada
This is the first class of my four-day stay in Toronto (thanks to Joel MacCharles and Dana Harrison from Well Preserved, for making the dream of this trip into a reality), 7-9 pm. I’ll be demonstrating my small batch jam making method and will bring a couple of jars to share as well. Class is at F’Coffee and costs $45 CAD. Click here to sign up.
September 12 – Toronto, Canada
On my second night, I’ll be teaching at Nella Cucina from 6:30-9 pm. I’ll make a small batch of jam for tasting and everyone will make their own jar of pickles to take home. Click here to sign up.
September 13 – Toronto, Canada
On Saturday, Joel and I are teaming up to offer a session that will dig into the work required to write a cookbook. I’ll tell you all the things I’ve learned having now done this twice, and Joel will share his very fresh experience as a first-time author. The session is from 10:30 am to 12 noon and costs $45 CAD. You can sign up here.
September 14 – Toronto, Canada
From 11 am to 5 pm Sunday is The Home Ec Big Outdoor Kitchen Party. This one-day food festival is designed to celebrate the small kitchens, independent producers, and local food champions who bring richness to the Toronto food scene. This free event will be held at the Harbourfront Centre and is something Joel and Dana have been planning for a very long time now. I am so excited to be a part of it.
Made a dozen 1/2 pints of spiced plum jam Monday night with our Italian prunes. It’s my most requested Christmas gift!
Must tell you since I saw you in Ambler, I have taught 3 friends and 1 cousin Small Batch Cooking. Everyone is always calling for new thiings to put in jars. Love canning.
wishing you the best on your tour and can’t wait till your new book comes out.
Will love seeing more honey sweetened recipes! Thanks!
I’m so looking forward to meeting you at Home Ec in Toronto!
Wow Toronto events — I so wish I could swing it! Wishing you a great tour and will let my T.O. friends know!
Italian plums! I love this time of year. I stew them in a port syrup, I make them into spiced plum jam, I eat them. . .so good. I knocked out the apple butter and the Mexican carrot pickle today, but I have yet to do the peaches and I don’t even have any plums. I guess I’d better hit the farmer’s market on Tuesday. . . .
