Josephine’s feast! opened in the summer of 2009. But it was a concept that started long before the first jar of jam was sealed. Over the years, family receipes were tweaked and holidays often included gifts from Laura’s kitchen.
Preserving was more than a hobby for her, is was a passionate pursuit, an extension of her creativity. Seeking out wild blueberies or rosehips on family vacations, or collecting jars of preserves from her travels around the world, confituer was a fascination to her.
And she became really very good at it. Laura says, “My passion is working in the traditional methode confituer handcrafting fruits and creating the most tasteful preserves.” Josephine’s feast! is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made confiture. The collection is made limited quantities from local fruits using traditional slow cooking methods.
The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the market today.
The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & chutneys, spice rubs & blends, natural sea salts, exceptionally modern heirloom cakes, and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting.
