About the event

We invite you to join the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) staff; Jana, Jeanne, and Michelle, on Zoom for some end of the year holiday cheer as we cook up something rustic yet elegant and celebrate 2021. WCDH is proud to present the second annual “Cooking with Jana,” a festive, virtual, holiday fundraiser. Part interactive cooking show, part holiday party, all fun, and brought to you live from the Dairy Hollow kitchen at 6:30 pm CST on Friday, December 10, 2021. The workshop fee is $0, but the suggested donation for the event is $25. We greatly appreciate any amount. It benefits the WCDH scholarship fund. That means your gift not only benefits WCDH, but the writers who receive financial aid, and the readers that enjoy the work that they created here. After you have registerd (at $0), you can donate through the PayPal Giving Fund here: The link is also provided on the registration page.  PayPal does not take any processing fees, and you do not need to have a PayPal account to make a donation.  All registrants for the event will be sent a Zoom link and Jana’s recipe. 

WCDH has been immensely fortunate to have Jana Jones as our beloved chef, housekeeper, and groundskeeper for more years than she can count. Raised in the Czech Republic, Jana brings a European flair to cooking, which writers-in-residence love. The nurturing care she puts into every meal, and her attention to the dietary needs and restrictions of our writers is a highlight of many a writer’s residency.

Writers’ Colony alumna Barb Eikmeier, commented on Jana’s 2020 show, “I just wanted to tell you how much I loved the Cooking with Jana session the other night! It was so lovely to see Jana again and to learn so many of her tricks and tips! Thanks for offering this fun session! Next time I’m going to invite my daughter to attend with me.”

Dairy Hollow alumna Heather Diamond joined from Hong Kong, “What a wonderful idea and hour! Even half awake, I was cheered to see all of you. Now to start baking...”
