About this Event

What’s it all about?

The word pickle originates from Dutch or German meaning salt or brine, the process of preserving vegetables this way goes back to 230 BC. Pickling is easy and fun to learn and you can pick up the basics and begin creating your own. Creative pickling requires a playful frame of mind. In this class you will be encouraged to tune into flavour.

What will we cover?

During the class we will cover the basic principles of pickling and discuss the huge array of vegetables, fruits, spices and herbs that can be used to make delicious pickles at home. We will prepare a batch of pickles step by step so get ready! While we chat and get creative, you will get a chance to learn about different versions of pickles and we will discuss the techniques and flavours to create lovely combinations at home.
