Hi Everyone! You may have noticed a lull in our usually consistent posting here. We’ve been so busy with great WellPreserved projects!
We hope you’re having a great preserving season – there’s 7 years worth of preserving recipes and inspiration to be had here in the archives. Along the top of the page (look up!…way up) is an alphabetical menu of ingredients…so if you’re looking for ideas that are specific for something you’re preserving, that’s where to look!
Here’s what we’ve been busy on…..first is The Home Ec Big Outdoor Kitchen Party that we’re throwing here in Toronto!! Hope you can come out and meet us and some of our great guests FACE-to-FACE this sunday! Loads of FREE demos and talks…more information and a full list of participants and presenters HERE
and Marisa is coming!!
We are excited to have Marisa McClellan from Food in Jars visiting us this weekend! She arrives tomorrow and is doing a small (sold out) intimate preserving class with us. We’ll be touring around Toronto all weekend but you can come out and meet her on SUNDAY at the Kitchen Party (did I mention…it’s FREE?) Bring a copy of Food in Jars or Preserving by the Pint for Marisa to sign (she’ll have a very limited number of copies available for sale…i’d love to encourage you to buy from your local small book seller like: The Cookery on Roncy, or Type Books on Queen or Good Egg in Kensington!).
and of course…we’ve also been hard at work on our OWN cookbook. In the past few months HUNDREDS of preserving and cooking recipes have been developed and have been sent out all over the world for testing! We spent Labour Day Weekend in the kitchen testing them out ourselves and making sure we have enough for photography and testing the other great meal recipes in the book.
We also finished our first photoshoot, follow us on Instagram and check out the hashtag #BatchCookbook to see some outtakes and watch our amazing photographer Margaret Mulligan literally scale walls to get the perfect shot. You’ll have to wait until 2016 to get your hands on it though so mark your calendar. It’s going to be EPIC.
We will be getting back to regular posting and creating our weekly newsletter in the next couple of weeks. In the mean time you can sign up for it over there in the sidebar. It’s only going to get better this year!!!
* yes…this is a LOT for 2 people (with other full time jobs)… it truly does ‘take a village’ and we’d really never ever be able to do any of this great stuff without the help and support of all of our friends and family and the amazing community of canners and preservers and food/restaurant/writers in Toronto and afar…so THANK YOU (there will be many thank you’s this year!!).
