  • Butchering; meat curing + aging; charcuterie with Steve Bookbinder
  • Baking Bread in a Clay Oven – Dana Stuchul & Chris Uhl

Any soap-makers out there? I’d love to add that to the May schedule.


For several months, I’ve been sending out email updates to a growing list, about twice a month. They usually have the type of information above, plus sometimes local food highlights from blog posts and strategic planning updates.

My email list now has more than 300 addresses on it and is growing rapidy, which is hard to keep up with, so I think I’m going to stop sending out email updates.

I’d like to encourage readers to please sign up for a blog subscription (upper right in the sidebar) if you’re not already a subscriber but like to have information delivered to directly your inbox. There are three subscription settings, so you can choose to get immediate notice of new posts, a daily digest that comes between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. each day, or a weekly digest that comes Monday mornings.
