Stocking the Seasonal Pantry with Kelly McVicker - 08/19/18
Summer is the season of garden fresh vegetables, picnics, impromptu barbecues, and al fresco dinners. Having your summer pantry well-stocked and ready to go makes the season all the easier.
Join Kelly McVicker, founder of McVicker Pickles, for this hands-on class on stocking the early summer pantry. Attendees will make and take home three pantry items based on seasonal market ingredients, such as traditional preserved lemons, fermented garlic-pepper hot sauce, bourbon pickled cherries, or marinated mushrooms with lemon & mint.
Kelly McVicker is the founder of San Francisco-based McVicker Pickles, where she blends her Kansas roots with California flavors via small batch pickles and condiments. Kelly has presented at TEDx, San Francisco Street Food Festival, Bay Area Maker Faire, Eat Real Festival, and other events. She has contributed recipes for books and magazines focused on food preservation and is currently researching for a book project of her own. Kelly is a Certified Master Food Preserver, which means she can teach you how to can, pickle, ferment, jam, jelly, dehydrate, or help you test your pressure canner. She lives in San Francisco but remains a Kansas girl at heart.
