Grandmother Workshop: Asian Pickles with Pat
$15, proceeds to go to La Cocina and Slow Food SF.
Please bring an apron, a chef's knife, a jar to bring pickles home in and your friends & family! Also, bring a couple radishes, carrots, or cucumbers to throw into the community pickle pot.
Join us for our 3rd Grandmother Workshop, an informal class on the traditional cooking skills our grandmothers used to teach us. Patricia Tanumihardja will be teaching us to make a variety of Asian pickles ranging from Chinese cucumber and carrot pickle, to Korean cabbage kimchi to an Indonesian fruit salad. In this hands-on class, we will learn how to pickle vegetables using vinegar as well as lacto-fermentation. And be sure to bring nonreactive jars with a tight lid to bring home some pickles!
Pat is a food and travel writer with a penchant for being in the kitchen. Cooking is in her genes: She learned to cook from her mother, Julia, who is an excellent cook and co-owner of their family restaurant, Julias Indonesian Kitchen in Seattle. Plus, she spent the last two years researching and writing her cookbook The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook (theasiangrandmotherscookbook.wordpress.com) which will be published in October. During this project, Pat interviewed and cooked with several dozen women from numerous Asian communities and scoured old cookbooks to put together a treasury of Asian American recipes.
