Marisa McClellan

Writer. Canning enthusiast. Jar collector. All terms that can describe Marisa McClellan. Born under the Hollywood sign and raised in Portland, OR, she now lives in the town that William Penn built, writing about local food and teaching her fellow Philadelphians just what to do with their garden abundance.

When she isn’t manning the canning pot or haunting farmers markets, she can be found working as a Web Producer at the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corportion and writing about canning at Food in Jars. She's currently working on her first book, which will be called (aptly enough) Food in Jars and will be published by Running Press in the spring of 2012.
