August has arrived and we are keeping cool at Marcel's with ice cream! The ice cream truck is pulling up and parking in our south window for another fun summer display and we invite you all to join us for our first ice cream social sponsored by Le Creuset.  Other Glen Ellyn events to jot down on your calendars are the Festival of the Arts and one of our favorites, the Backyard BBQ.

If you haven't yet heard of the Glen Ellyn shopping card, we have oulined all of the details for you; we know this is a deal that Marcel's customers will not want to miss!  Our friends at Swiss Diamond must have seen the amazing success of our Well Loved Pots & Pans Exchange this spring since they are sponsoring their own Buy Back program. Also, we are thrilled that Le Creuset is rolling out some exclusive colors until the end of the year. Perfect your summer entertaining menus with our August classes highlighting BBQs, bonfires, corn roasts and canning!

 The Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn is a retail partnership funded by The Village of Glen Ellyn and local Glen Ellyn businesses. Glen Ellyn’s independent retailers face enormous competition from shopping in metro Chicago and online. To help offset this competition, the Alliance works to increase foot traffic and sales by planning events and heightening awareness of downtown Glen Ellyn as a welcoming shopping and dining destination for residents and vistors from surrounding communities. Shop Local!

Sun, Aug 16th 12:00 - 5:00 pm
Chef Kelly Sears
 
July and August are prime time for berries, and cherries, peaches, plums, and nectarines. One bite into a fresh-picked peach, juices running down your arm, nature's sweetness on your tongue, makes you wish summer could last forever, and it can (small pun intended!). Preserve the fruits and vegetables that are so plentiful from Farmers Markets, backyard gardens, and the local vegetable stands right now so you can savor and enjoy them later during the long, cold winter months. After preserving and pickling, we will create a meal from the produce we have "put up." A meal will be created using the pickles and jams we make in class: Pickled Heirloom Tomatoes, Pickled Peaches, Pickled Giardiniera, Plum Marsala Jam and Raspberry Mango Jam.

On the menu:
Arugula and Tomato Salad with Tomato Viniagrette

Grilled Pork Chops with Pickled Peach Relish

Roasted Summer Vegetable with Pickled Giardiniera

Ricotta Lemon Pound Cake with Whipped Cream and Jam
