learn how to preserve food! In many different ways!

happy girl kitchen co. has a full schedule of workshops offered at our store, cafe & kitchen location on Cannery Row in Pacific Grove.  We have a passion for preserving and cooking and baking with the local, organic harvest!  Co owners Todd and Jordan have been teaching workshops since 2007 and have taught to over 5,000 people.  Our main goal is to encourage you to actually take these skills and do it in your own home kitchen.  We have run our own food preservation business and cafe for 15 years and are happy to share the secrets we have learned.
Do you want to enjoy local foods like tomatoes and cherries year round? Do you have an interest in food traditions and preservation and want to learn more? Are you interested in canning, but have a fear of not doing it safely?  Whatever your motivation, Happy Girl Kitchen Co. is offering a variety of workshops on preserving and cooking the local harvest in simple and delicious ways.  We have workshops for all ages and encourage people to get together with friends for the workshop, or drop your children off for one of our kids workshops and go have a date night!  Dinner or lunch is served with each of our workshops.
