Fagor Mac 'N Cheese
Fagor LUX LCD MulticookerThe Fagor Lux Electric Multi-Cooker does it all, from quick pressure cooking to slow cooking, and it even has specialty programs for making yogurt, white and brown rice, and risotto! The Lux also comes with cooking assist functions that help make your one pot meal that much easier. You can saute, simmer, brown and steam, and even keep your prepared food warm for up to 12 hours once the cooking time is complete. And with its non-stick ceramic pot insert, clean up is fast and easy!

This Saturday, come learn why we love pressure cooking, which maintains food’s nutrients and flavors, while reducing cooking time up to 70%. With the easy to use Pressure Cooking Setting, Sue will demonstrate how to prepare a creamy, homemade mac and cheese in only 10 minutes. And with the time you’ll save on cooking, you’ll have much more time relaxing and enjoying the holidays with friends and family!

Jessica NolenJessica Nolen (1:30 – 3:00 pm) signing New German Cooking
Ever since I was a kid, I knew I wanted to work with food; in what sense of that, I didn’t care. The gathering, measuring, mixing, scooping, baking, and of course, eating was all so invigorating. The whole process was that of a Zen like state, meditative, calming, and comforting-I was hooked. ‘Desserts by Jessica’ was printed on the menu at my first pastry job at a local cafe in Maryland. After graduating high school, I went off to The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia and soon would graduate with an Associate’s of Science Degree in Pastry Arts. I have made my way through some incredible restaurants and have learned and grown tremendously. I even met my husband, Jeremy Nolen at one of them! We have become inseparable we share our lives together forever, as a team. The hands of fate have brought us to each other, brought us a beautiful little girl, and a booming career as the Chef and Pastry chef at Brauhaus Schmitz. As of today, we are lucky to have the opportunity to have published a cookbook, New German Cooking, opened a restaurant Whetstone Tavern, and have had the opportunity to open a Bakery, The Little Bird. I have also won Zagat’s 30 under 30, Best Pretzel in Philly, and the Purple Cupcake Award from Women Against Abuse. Opportunity is something that I have been lucky to have gotten throughout my career and I look forward to the future-hey, maybe even a pretzel factory one day!

Holly RicciardiHolly Ricciardi (12:00 - 1:30 pm) signing Magpie: Sweets and Savories from Philadelphia's Favorite Pie Boutique
