I did not expect to email you this soon. However, I do have important dates to give you. Firstly, the ship has arrived and my tea/ spice crisis is over so I can sell those 80 cup bags for those who need them. 
Exciting News: The NEW Yale Town Farmer's Market has been extended to December and I will be there. Hours: Noon- 4 pm

The first cooking class has happened and it was yummy & fun! There is a picture below of our dinner. Cooking classes dates are scheduled. Please email me right away if interested as I have very limited space. I will give you all the details in an email regarding cost etc. The food will be all organic and locally sourced. Groups of 4 or 5 maximum.

I have a brand new masala, yes another one! I think this is my best yet, it is called Trudy Ann's Spicy Mix. All these recipes have been passed down to me by my family.  I regularly get recipes in a letter or over the phone. The old fashioned way.

Hope to see you & thank you for coming out to the markets, especially when it pours! It is always dry under my tent and if you are early, I have cups of hot chai to go ;-D

Love to all,
Trudy Ann

WIN an 80 CUP Chai Bag

Watch me making chai on the Sip and Stitch segment of  the show "It takes balls to knit". For the knitters out there, this is a great show by my good friend Steve Malcolm. You can win a bag of my chai by following the instructions on his website for the contest. The deadline is Friday Oct 4 with the winner being announced on Oct 6. I'm finally going to learn to knit!


More Info


A plug for my  sons, Trevor and Rowan (the Whitridge Brothers) who you may see busking at VFM, have their first gig as a duo at Cory Weeds Jazz Cellar on Tuesday Oct 8 at 8 pm. Reservations are suggested.
It would be great if you are a fan of their music (jazz), if you can spread the word and come see them. It will be a wonderful show!  I have been making endless cups of chai for all these budding jazz musicians during rehearsals at our home. My sons are 13 and 17 and together, they make beautiful music
