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.
