Marmalade and “Day-off Dinners” Series at Love Apple Farm

Just in case you haven’t heard, I’m teaching a bunch of classes over at the new Love Apple farm, which moved last year to Santa Cruz from up the hill in Ben Lomond. The new farm has teaching kitchen that’s well-equipped yet intimate enough to create a cozy learning environment. You really get to see, smell, taste, and even get your hands little dirty in the process. So far I’ve taught classes on Thai curries, a produce-centric class about Meyer lemons, and a bunch of others. One upcoming class you might be interested in, especially if you’re a fan of my marmalade, is the “artisan marmalade” class.

Citrus season is not over yet, there’s still plenty time to try your hands at making your own marmalade, so come to my class! We’ll be making three different styles of marmalade: the classic, bitter, English style made from sour oranges; a sweeter marmalade made from sweet citrus such as Mandarin or Clementine, and a spice-infused marmalade. With these three different techniques, you can adapt them to just about any citrus you could get your hands on. This class will be just as fun and useful to both beginner and experienced marmalade makers alike.

This class will be on Sunday March 13, and if you’re coming, remember to bring your own very sharp knife and a small cutting board. You’ll be getting your hands dirty in this class! (Plus you’ll get a jar of marmalade to take home!) Go sign up here.

Another upcoming class is a part of a series we call “Day-off Dinners”, which I co-teach with my boyfriend David Kinch. Even though we both work in food – me here and David at his 2-Michelin-star restaurant Manresa in Los Gatos – we still love cooking together on our days off. What we make are often simple (ok, sometimes only deceptively so), relying on the fresh, seasonal ingredients we’re so lucky to get here in the Bay Area and Central Coast. The first of this series took place early in February, and not only did we not kill each other during the class, our students seem to have had a grand old time in it. Ha.

The next date for the Day-off Dinners series is March 6, and there’s still a couple spaces available there, then the following ones are March 27, and April 17.  Go sign up here if you’re interested.

    you know, when I see the first pic I feel like during a summer… fresh and sunny :) In Poland actually there is no warm sun or something like that so I need such pics even more. When I see the second pic, I`m smiling, because I looove cooking with somebody, not alone. There is so much more fun and then each meal taste better :) so thank you for this post anyway and greetings from frozen Poland!

    The marmalade class was fabulous. We learned techniques for using different types of citrus and other secrets to making fantastic marmalade. Pim generously shared her wealth of information, so this class was excellent for beginners and experienced marmalade makers. If you have an opportunity to take a class from Pim, I wouldn’t hesitate. This is my third class, and each one has been a wonderful learning experience. I heard there may be a jam class, and perhaps a few other classes coming up this summer, so I may see you there!

    I really enjoyed reading your post on artisan marmalades. My family is from Virginia and I grew up canning and preserving all through the summer! We put up jars of jellies, jams, conserves, preserves, fruit butters and marmalades! There is hardly anything more satisfying than eating these sweets, especially when they are made from fresh-picked fruits. I wrote about my experiences in this area: http://inthekitchenwitheva-eva.blogspot.com/2010/06/on-canning-and-preserving.html. Hope you enjoy it! Enjoy your classes. Eva

    Jam classes are lacking here… but I am sure they would be very popular! I always tend to do more baking class than others… After reading your post on marmalades, I will organize a class over here, thanks for inspiring me! :)

  • Diane

    Oh my! I just saw your summer macaron classes listed in the Love Apple Farm newsletter. Ever since I got to sample one of your chocolate macarons at the marmalade class, I’ve been waiting to find out how to make them. I can’t wait, I just can’t decide if I should sign up for the May or June class.

  • Martha

    I attended the Day Off Dinner demonstration a little while ago. You made Almond cake with Strawberries macerated in a simple syrup which also included Jamaica 9Hibiscus) flowers. I was thinking of topping it with Amretto Whipped cream, but is that too much almond? What would be another liquor flavor I could add to the whipped cream, or would Amaretto be good because there are so many other flavors going on that it would be too much? The “Day-off Dinners” series is wonderful. I am planning to attend another one soon!

    I can only say: wow, it looks very very nice and i am sure it tastes incredible. I will try this recipe for sure, thanks for sharing with us.

  • http://chezpim.com Pim

    Hi Martha,

    I think you should try Kirsch. Almonds are in the same stone fruit family as cherries, believe it or not, so I think they flavors go nicely together. But if you do Kirsch I’d use cherries instead of strawberries though. Or rum, if you want to stay with strawberries as the flavor would go nicely with the vanilla.

    See you again soon at the farm!

    cheers,
    Pim

  • http://chezpim.com Pim

    Thanks Diane! The May class is gone but there’s still room in the June one so make your move. :-)
