BLOOMINGDALE – The Bloomingdale Garden Club has canceled a March 17 program titled "Five Ways to Preserve the Harvest."
"With older adults in our club, we are following the example set by local government for social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic," a news release from the club stated.
The club was to have offered an interactive presentation by food blogger and cookbook author Emily Paster, who covers five ways to preserve a garden harvest.
Anyone interested in seeing "Five Ways to Preserve the Harvest," can go Paster's website at www.westoftheloop.com to find out where she will be presenting next, the release stated.
Paster is the author of two cookbooks, 2016’s "Food Swap: Specialty Recipes for Bartering, Sharing & Giving" and "The Joys of Jewish Preserving," published in 2017. She is the writer and photographer behind the website West of the Loop, which has been called “a family food blog to savor.” As the founder of the Chicago Food Swap, a community event where handmade foods are bartered and exchanged, Paster is a leader in the national food swap movement.
