Special Evening Event in Pittsfield: Delivering Love, Long Distance with Janet Reich Elsbach

 

A home cooked meal is a lovely gesture for friends and neighbors, but how do you express your food love to those outside your delivery zone? Join us to deep dive into the art of the care package. We’ll prepare a few simple recipes that come together quickly and travel successfully, and discuss other elements of the well-crafted and thoughtful delivery: funky packaging, extra-comfort additions and tricks for making a priority mail box overflow with love. During class, we’ll pack boxes for local youth who are off at college with no network of support, and you’ll go home with an enhanced toolkit, recipes and ideas for future deliveries of your own! (Note: A big thank you Rope Berkshires (ropeberkshires.org) for their work with Berkshire youth, and for making these connections possible.)

This event is FREE, but we only have 18 spaces! Register here.

Janet Reich Elsbach is a home cook inspired by seasonal food, the particular cravings of those she loves to feed, and the idea of bringing people together at the table. Her book, Extra Helping: Recipes for Caring, Connecting, and Building Community One Dish at a Time, was recently published by Roost.
