Intro to Pickling

Intro to Pickling

June 23, 2024
Sunday, June 23 | 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. | $50

One of the best ways to bring a ton of flavor to just about any dish is by adding some type of pickled vegetable. From pickled red onions on tacos, pickled chiles on pizza, jazzing up a charcuterie board, or just eating from the jar, the acidic sweet-sourness is addictive. Rob Leonard has been using the water bath method to make dill pickles for over 20 years. In this introductory course, students will learn the basics of pickling. Participants will prepare, pack, and pickle Kirby Cucumbers (Dill Pickles) and Old-Fashioned Dilly Beans (Green Beans). You will take home your own pint of each. Pickled vegetables, charcuterie, and wine will be served in this class!

Pinot Noir Food & Wine

We love Pinot Noir. With its unique profile and array of flavors, from red fruits to earthy undertones, it's a catch-all food pairing wine. Light enough for fish dishes, yet bold enough to hold up to rich meats — it's a crowd-pleasing wine. Join Chef Carrie and Teresa Kearney for an evening to enjoy ideal pairings for an earthy Grilled Mushroom Salad and delicate Salmon dressed in a Fennel Beurre Blanc Sauce. Summer's freshest vegetables will create a flavorful Ratatouille with Goat Cheese and Olives. And for dessert, a fresh Raspberry-Hazelnut Tart.
