Join Meg Paska for an afternoon of holiday gift making. In this class attendees will be shown the some updated classic candy recipes (think brittles, barks and fudge), holiday inspired jam making, and boozey infusions. You'll also learn how to make amazing themed gift baskets without spending a lot of money.
In this class we will be making:
-Hickory-smoked bacon and pecan brittle
-Spiced clementine marmalade

The class will last about 2 hours, drinks and snacks will be made available and students will leave with samples of their work to inspire them at home!
