Live and in person.

I love writing and getting in front of the camera, but I’m happiest when I’m with people – sharing stories and tips, cooking and serving up farm-fresh food. Check out the schedule below or follow me on Facebook.

Here, there and everywhere!

I’m based in Washington, DC and appear at events throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Mid-West. Want me to come to you? Check out the Book Us page for corporate and private in-home events and farm market demonstrations or contact me at jonathan@jonathanbardzik.com.

Farm, fresh and seasonal.

This is how it started: sharing the joy of cooking simple, farm-fresh, seasonal food at DC’s historic Eastern Market. Today I appear at farm markets throughout the DC metro area year ‘round, and share farm-fresh, seasonal joy, simple dishes, and delicious flavors wherever I travel.

I look forward to seeing you throughout the year. Please come up and introduce yourself!
