Gillian Reynolds, Jamnation

Saturday, July 15, 2017, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Stanford-economics-major-turned-food-preservationist Gillian Reynolds creates bright, bold jams with a focus on sustainability, seasonality, and superior ingredients. Inspired by her travels to Brazil, London, Turkey, and beyond, she crafts complex flavors that evoke faraway places while using California-grown organic fruit and herbs (some from the Ferry Plaza), and fair trade sugar and spices. She’s been known to offer jams like Midnight in Pearis (“luscious, chunky pear butter with warm spices”) and Razzle Bazzle (“brightness of fresh basil infused into the tangy sweetness of raspberries”), as well as customizable gift sets that feature three jars of jam, along with expert cheese pairing notes and recipes.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
