Learn to pickle like a pro with The Salt Box at Reigate's Pilgrim Brewery. You'll make a delicious collection of pickles to give your festive feast the edge. Then, use your newfound skills to make the perfect edible Christmas gifts for friends and family.
Pickling is one of those magical preservation methods that not only extends a food's shelf life, but also takes its flavour profile to interesting and delicious places. In our masterclass, we'll share our secrets to creating the perfect quick pickles. We'll go over supplies, types of pickle liquor, and more useful bits of knowledge that will bring your at-home pickling skills to the next level!
The evening will start with a light bite, followed by a one-hour pickling masterclass. Following the class, we’ll sit down to dinner cooked by The Salt Box team. Last but not least - you’ll also get the chance to sample a trio of Pilgrim Brewery beers, the perfect accompaniment to a pickle!
