We’re writing our first Cookbook!
Our seasoned readers may have noticed a lull in activity around these parts. We apologize for that sincerely and thank you for sticking with us. We are writing our first Cookbook! We have new friends at Random House Canada that we’re getting well aquainted with, especiallly our new family on the Appetite imprint. It’s definitely one of the most challenging projects we’ve ever taken on, but in spring of 2016 you’ll be able to hold in your hand in all it’s 300+ pages of hard bound papery analog goodness an amazing and beautiful book that will help you think differently about preserving whether you’re a seasoned veteran or brand new to the art.
For some behind the scenes and little day-to-day updates you can follow us over here:
We have two main goals we are working on for 2015….
One: revamp the newsletter so it’s an even better resource for you (if you’re not signed up already you can sign up in the right hand column of the page).
Two: write/photograph/illustrate useful, unique inspiring (and beautiful) content about a lot of things to do with a life that revolves around food!
To that end we will be posting less frequently, and freeing ourselves up to explore and interact with you more (and finish this book!**). Right now Wellpreserved is just the two of us, created between our full time jobs. We’re working hard toward being able to dedicate more time to it and to you, so we really really appreciate your continued support.

For our NEW VISITORS!
Hi there! We are Joel MacCharles and Dana Harrison. A couple (10 years and counting!), living life in the city (Toronto Canada). We spend a lot of our time obsessing about food and sharing our ideas thoughts, and recipes here on WellPreserved. Our goal is to inspire you to try something new, get in the kitchen (preferably with friends) and make something and share it. It’s easy, and it WILL make your life better. Wellpreserved is about embracing the seasons and saving the best parts for later. We care about consuming consciously, connecting people and ideas and getting creative. Get messy, screw a few things up, don’t be afraid it’s not rocket surgery, you can totally handle it.
What you’ll find here:
WellPreserved.ca contains an archive of over 1800 posts exploring, testing and trying ideas for preserving, making food and living seasonally. Have you always wanted to try preserving but don’t know where to get started? Hang out here for a while (the big yellow ‘button’ in the sidebar is a good spot to START) and we’ll help out. Jump in and make your first batch of something.
got a question or a story idea? hello at wellpreserved dot ca
**did you know….it takes YEARS to make a cookbook….?? neither did we!! We’re BLOGGERS. But we swear on all things fermented and pickled that this is going to be the best and most beautiful cookbook about preserving you will ever lay your hands on. We want you to dog-ear that sucker, write in the margins, we want to make a pass it-on-to your-grandkids kindof cookbook. so we’ve been a bit pre-occupied and obsessed.
