Summer Preserves

This class is sold out.

You can add yourself to the wait list below.

August in the Bay Area means we’re rewarded with a bounty of stunning produce. If you’ve ever wondered how to make that last, our Summer Preserves class will show you how.

In this one-day workshop, Cortney Burns of Bar Tartine will guide you through the ins and outs of safe canning as you learn to make a variety of jams and preserves. Using the best produce of the season, you’ll create some classics as well as some innovative new flavor combinations, all to take home and enjoy in the months to come. Cortney will teach you not only how to prepare the preserves, but she’ll also share some creative ways to use them (thinking beyond just toast and jam!).

Menu: Raspberry & Rose Jam, Santa Rosa Plum & Sherry Jam with Tarragon, Carrot, Ginger & Cardamom Marmalade, Apricot Fruit Butter, Strawberry and Lavender Conserva.

And, yes, a light lunch and wine will be served!

This is an immersive, hands-on cooking class. You will be on your feet cooking most of the time so please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
