Upcoming Event on December 5th!

Hello all! While I work on a post for next week (this week really got away from me, but it involved fun things like teaching a one-time instruction session/show-and-tell ALL about the culinary collection!), I did want to promote an upcoming event.

If you’re in the SW Virginia area, you’ll want to know about this! On December 5, 2014, the Peacock Harper Culinary Friends will be hosting a lunch and program: “British Holiday Brunch.” This event will be at the Kyle House in Fincastle, and includes a tour, brunch, and talk. This should be a wonderful event!

Please note: You do need to register in advance, by December 1, 2014! (The registration form is below the flyer.)
