Vancouver’s culinary movers and shakers are set
to share their home-making secrets on The Cooking Stage at the BC Home + Garden Show
happening February 17-21 at BC Place Stadium. Taking centre stage is our
brand-new “Meet the Makers” series, featuring masters of the slow-living
movement demonstrating techniques for everything from at-home canning to
preserves, decadent spreads and savoury cheeses.
Snag a seat at The Cooking Stage for real advice and inspiration from
the city’s leading slow-living masters. Without further ado, let’s go ahead and
meet our makers.
Sarah Stewart’s culinary career began at the acclaimed FRANK Restaurant
under the tutelage of Chopped Canada’s Anne Yarymowich and Canoe founder Jeff Dueck. Eventually, Sarah developed her passion
for foraging, preserving and canning while leading the kitchen at Northern
Ontario’s internationally acclaimed Camp Wanapitei. Passionate about building
community through cooking, Sarah’s commitment to seasonal, local ingredients,
traditional techniques and the conservation of our shared Canadian culinary
heritage play a vital role in the food programme she’s crafted for Juniper.

Founder, East Van Jam
East Van Jam is the third child of Natalie
Ferrari-Morton who lives in East Vancouver with her husband and two boys. She
has spent her entire adult life living in Vancouver’s east side and for all
those years has been honing and perfecting her jam-making skills and recipes,
culminating in high quality, big hustle and flavorful jams. After three years
hosting canning workshops under the moniker “Homesteading Mamas”, Natalie was
ready to take the jam scene by storm, and East Van Jam was born, a low-sugar
spread alternative to the high sugar preserve that masquerades as fruit.

Owner, Madd Acres Cheesemaking Classes

art of cheese making over 4 years ago, in hopes of helping her friends learn

comprehensive, delicious and a lot of fun.
