Overview

Join us as we visit with The Jam Stand, Brooklyn-based artisan makers of jam. They've been featured on The Today Show, Refinery 29, Bon Apetit, PureWow and Oprah. And as an added bonus this session will include Sparkling Pointe Winery, an award-winning maker of sparkling wines on the North Fork of Long Island.

Pairing Jam, food and wine

  • We will be talking about “Jam, Cheese, and Wine…Pairings You Need To Know About.”
  • What jam and cheese goes with sparkling rosé?
  • What dry brut-style bubly goes with Blueberry Bourbon Jam?

Meet The Founders

  • The Jam Stand was born and raised in Brooklyn—the passion project of two best friends Sabrina and Jessica. Since then it’s bloomed into a delicious mission: to bring unique flavors to every table in town. The secret ingredient? Invention. The other secret ingredient? Fun.
  • They believe that good things put together can create something better. That’s why unusual collaborations are always at the heart of the Jam Stand. These funky inventive spreads taste best in great company.
  • So whenever you’re looking for an inspired spread, a secret ingredient, or a midnight snack, the Jam Stand has your back.
