Kelly Geary is a chef who incorporates her wide ranging curiosity and passion for beauty and deliciousness into everything she does. After working in restaurant kitchens she started Sweet Deliverance as a CSA-based delivery service. What does that mean? Well, she signs you up for a CSA share, then takes care of all the rest. Geary picks up, then prepares your weekly share, making a menu that is both healthy and fun to eat. She has also co-written Tart & Sweet, a book about jam and other preserves and produces award-winning Sweet Deliverance jams. This holiday season she has curated a few awesome gift baskets that are perfect for those hard-to-buy for folks, far away family or anyone really, who loves to cook and eat. She’s offering free shipping for BB readers, just order via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 347-415-2994.
