Pickling with Cornersmith

Presented by The Cooking School at The Essential Ingredient Rozelle
About the class

The Essential Ingredient would like to welcome Alex Elliott-Howery, owner of Cornersmith, into our Cooking School to teach at this special event.

Learn the art of vinegar-based pickling & preserving, and work with the seasons so you can savour your favourite produce all year round. In this fun, hands-on class, Alex will teach you everything you need to know to start bottling at home. She will cover vinegar types, sterilizing, heat processing and storing methods. She will also share her tips on how to use traditional preserving techniques to reduce food waste at home. There will be plenty of tastings and time for questions.
