The Event

This Masterclass is part of our 'VIP Series', working with experts who are renowned in their field.

“Preserving is all about capturing seasonal moments, embracing glorious gluts and ensuring nothing you grow or buy goes to waste. I’ll show you how to turn your precious produce into healthy, sugar-free jams, chutneys, pickles, home-grown tisanes and tonics, gut-friendly ferments and more.”
