The expert

Caro is a bit of a Yarra Valley legend. She contract-manufactures a range of preserves and fermented goods for retailers around the region, and beyond. For the past few years, she has also been a regular fixture at cooking schools throughout Melbourne, imparting her deep knowledge and passion for wholesome, real-food cooking. Recently Caro decided to open up her own home food studio, giving guests a unique behind-the-scenes view of where she works (and also allowing Caroline to stay in her slippers all day!).

The plan 

A gift of lovingly made jam, some fancy spiced nuts or a pretty box of sweet treats is THE best gift you can give at Christmas. It says you care for the person who receives it, it shows you care for the planet and it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. How can that not be fabulous? Caro and her team will take you through some fab festive gifty fare so you will be inspired to take a pair of scissors to that present list and channel your inner elf this Chrissie. Of course, we'll snack along the way as you'll need all your strength to lug your booty home.

The fruits of your labour 

Pickled cherries, cranberry sauce, strawberry and vanilla-bean jam, rose-petal jelly, spicy posh nuts, and Swedish jam cakes.

The kit required 

A large bag to take home the loot!
