Quick Overview

AUGUST 11th, 4-6 PM


Valerie is excited to offer this special class at her newest location, Valerie Echo Park. This one-time session was created exclusively for Citi Cardmembers! You'll learn how to make your own preserves at home, from selecting the best fruit, through preparation and cooking, and finishing with processing in a water bath to keep your preserves shelf stable. Valerie's Strawberry Vanilla Bean Jam was named "Best Jam in Los Angeles" by Los Angeles Magazine in 2010, so you're sure to enjoy the finished product.

Open to adults and children age 16 and over.

$75 per person, 8 people maximum. Class will be approximately 2 hours.

Tickets will be sold in groups of 2, with the option to add additional single participants to your group. Included in the session is a signed copy of SWEET, Valerie's James Beard Award nominated cookbook. After your purchase, you will be contacted by Valerie Confections to confirm your space in the class, along with all other necessary details.
*Please note that this class is not open to the public, and that tickets must be purchased with a valid Citi Card. The class will take place in a professional kitchen. While every effort will be made to insure the safety of this class, participation will be at your own risk, and neither Valerie Gordon, nor Valerie Confections, will be liable for any injury that results from failing to follow the safety protocols that will be reviewed at the beginning of the class. All participants will be required to sign a waiver, indicating that they understand the risks involved in working with preserves. Minors 16 and over will only be allowed to participate with signed waiver from their parent or guardian.

Class size is will be a minimum of 4 people, with a planned maximum of 8 people. At their own discretion, to accommodate a group which might be over the limit of 8 people, Valerie and Valerie Confections may choose to slightly increase the class size. A copy of SWEET will be included with each pair of tickets purchased, although an additional book will not be provided if a single person is added to your group of two. Additionally, if not enough tickets are sold to fill the class, or if an emergency arises which requires the class to be cancelled, a full refund will be provided, but the class will not be rescheduled, and the free book will not be provided. Purchased tickets will be non-refundable after July 14, 2013.

The class will be held at Valerie Echo Park, located at 1665 Echo Park Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90026. No transportation to the event is included with the purchase.
