Interested in Food Preservation?

We’re giving away a chance to have fun and learn. That’s right, you heard me! You have a chance to attend a free class of your choice with ISLAND’s Preservation Station (Blanche- for short) thanks to TLD. A class with Blanche will teach you the basics about food preservation, get you excited about preserving food in your own kitchen, and to top it off you’ll get to take home some tasty eats to enjoy next week or a few months from now.
