A New Year Brings New Life!
Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you can forgive us for not sending out our Usual Festive Holiday Greeting…..we had great plans, but alas, our computer had major health issues and was sent to MacHospital the week before Christmas! You can imagine our distress.
As they say, better late than never….Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Break a Leg, Eat, Drink and be Merry….May all your New Year’s Resolutions last more than 3 weeks but most importantly we wish you all Health and Happiness for 2012 and always.
You know …, dreams really do come true. For as long as I have dreamed about having my weaving school (decades) I have also dreamed about finding a way to marry my other 2 passions to the business, growing food and making delicious meals.
As many of you know we have a pretty big garden and grow heaps of awesome food to feed our family and guests and now JST has taken the next step and brought on board the lovely, delightful and talented chef Rosemary Harbrecht. Rosemary trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, owned her first bakery called “Rosemary’s” near Berkely, CA and then owned the Brulee Bakery in Calgary, Alberta. She has co-authored cookbooks, taken cooking tours to France and Tuscany and is now the pastry chef for the renowned Hastings House on Salt Spring Island. Rosemary helps complete the circle. She loves cooking and gardening….coffee and chocolate……. and other such essentials! Can you believe our luck? New retreats are on the horizon bringing cooking, weaving and gardening together.
