Mulholland Store, 2-5pm: Special Demo & Tasting with Just Jan’s
Just Jan’s was started in 2012, by Jan Hogrewe. After a twenty year career in the film industry, Jan was ready for her second act. A life long food lover, and cookbook aficionado, Jan didn’t have to search very long to discover her new career. In creating her spreads Jan has been guided by her love of food and ingredients, refusing to compromise on quality or flavor. The result is a line of spreads and curds that are all natural, preservative free, and 14% lower in sugar than traditional jams and jellies. Today Just Jan’s features 13 flavors, from sweet to savory, to spicy.

West Hollywood Store, 11am – 3pm: Demo + Tasting with Muddle + Wilde
Laura (a late bloomer to the art of cocktail enjoyment) but a keen chef, found herself disenchanted by the array of artificially flavored and sweetened store bought options. Gathering and pairing together local, organic citrus and herbs, jars of fresh mixers were then muddled into drinks by her good friend Moira (more of a seasoned cocktail drinker and concoctor) resulting in a very happy crowd and a table of unopened wine bottles.
Both looking for a new business adventure, Muddle & Wilde was formed there and then: the goal being to craft organic, sophisticated mixers that make cocktail making creative and effortless whilst delivering a taste that is subtle and unexpected.
