Everything about pickles is fun. The name is amusing, the crunch is addictive and the taste is a party for the palette. As if that weren’t enough, there is mounting evidence that the natural bacteria in pickled produce protects our digestion, boosts our immune system and staves off all manner of sickness.
Join us for an informative discussion on fermenting, followed by a do-it-yourself home pickling demonstration and a tasting of the best of New York’s pickles, sauerkrauts and other fermented treats, presented by three masters of fermentation:
Mr. Sandor Katz, aka "Sandorkraut" the poster boy of pickling
Chef Robert Schaefer founder of Divine Brine Foods
Rob Eshman author of the Foodaism blog.
