Hi I’m Pam!
Please join me as we Cook Up A Storm! I am a Master Preserver, Culinary Instructor & Home Chef teaching canning and preserving classes . Located in Westport, Connecticut, I am available for schools and organizations, teaching at many of the nonprofit Farm Kitchens to advance the movement of preserving local and organic produce- and we have fun doing it! Eating seasonally has never tasted so good!
As a Master Preserver, I love to teach my students to preserve real organic fruits and vegetables to enjoy year round. Whether you are interested in jams,pickles,tomatoes ,or any of the bounty from each season, small batch canning is easy to learn. Food safety is our priority…so let’s fill some jars and get started!
Preserving methods include Canning, Freezing, Dehydrating, Fermenting, and Infusing. I have some great classes making delicious and nutritious recipes that with last and that have wonderful health benefits as well. My classes always cover Food Safety to assure that the foods remain perfect. My approach is with an eye towards great nutrition & cooking as pleasure- not pressure!
As we learn new recipes, we will take on new foods and flavor challenges. We explore amazing recipes that integrate the ingredients and tastes that you love .We approach food as a necessity and a passion. Let’s lighten up! Come along and enjoy eating again (always with a nod to your health) Equipment and recipes are provided.
