The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook Launch Party

Everything’s starting to come together for Rachel’s cookbook tour. Last night, we had our book launch party at our kitchens with about 100 of our closest friends and biggest supporters!

There were jammy snacks, jammy cocktails, and even some jazzy music jams (sorry, we couldn’t resist). Thanks again to everyone who helped us celebrate this tremendous achievement! It feels so good to be supported by such a fun, creative, dynamic community, and we really hope the new cookbook makes you happy and fills your life with delicious preserves.

If you’d like to see more pictures from last night’s event, and see pictures from upcoming events, please check out our Facebook page. And, if you couldn’t make it last night but want to know when Rachel’s coming to a bookstore near you, don’t forget to look at our Where to Find Us page.

Many thanks to Grace Street Catering for the beautiful space, and for helping us entertain our guests! We’re still dreaming about those little jammy snacks…

Further thanks to the lovely Sara Remington for coming by to help us celebrate. It wouldn’t have been a true cookbook celebration without you, and The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook would definitely not be the same without your gorgeous photography!

And on that note, it’s time for us to get ready for all of our San Francisco Bay Area events this week! Please do come by, say hello, get your cookbook signed. Can’t wait to see you!
