Workshop! Pickling with Preservation Society's Camilla Wynne!

October 04, 2011 at 08:00 PM

Back in August, we hosted an amazing night with pastry chef and preserves expert Camilla Wynne. Her workshop, ‘Preserving Stone Fruits,’ was a mega success. So much fun, in fact, that we’ve decided to hold another workshop with Camilla — this time focusing on the saltier side of preserves… pickling and chutneys!

Camilla’s pickling workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 4, here at Le Pick Up. Camilla will discuss her favored pickling and canning techniques, including an introduction to basic pickling safety. Together, we’ll make batches of her favorite seasonal pickles. Learn all you can so you can stock up on your own homemade pickles and chutneys before winter sets in!


Let’s learn more about Camilla:

Camilla is a professionally trained pastry chef who has been canning since 2002. She most recently worked at Laloux and Pastisserie Rhubarbe, but has also done stints at Les Chevres (RIP), Anise (RIP), and wd~50 (NYC). Formerly the baker behind Backroom Records and Pastries, she now sells jams, marmalades, jellies, pickles and other preserves under the Preservation Society moniker.

The workshop will begin promptly at 8pm. Each participant will have a hand in making their own preserves, with guidance and instruction from Camilla. The registration fee is $25. We are located at 7032 rue Waverly, and are a cozy and intimate space — so please register soon as there are a very limited number of spots! Cash only, please. To register, please email me at Natasha.pickowicz [at] gmail [dot] com.

We hope to see you there!!
