Who doesn’t love a crunchy kosher pickle? From Katz’s Deli in New York, to Cantor’s In Los Angeles, to our own local deli Benjie’s, have you ever wondered why pickles are served at these traditional Jewish restaurants and what their connection is to Judaism? Did you know that pickle juice is referenced in the Talmud, and cucumbers are mentioned twice in the Torah (spoiler alert: in Numbers and Isaiah). Here’s where you will find those answers!!The history of pickles goes back more than 3000 years, and in this class you will learn about the historical connection of pickles to our European ancestors, and their subsequent bringing them to North America. Our guide on this briney journey Avram, will not only share with us the history of pickles, he will also teach us the “how-to” of pickle-making. He will show us how to make a proper brine in the Jewish tradition, a proportioned mixture of salt, sugar and water essential for the pickling process. You’ll be instructed on how to recognize the use of various spices to create a specific flavor profile, the proper technique for cutting the cucumbers, and the pickling process itself. Think about it? Making fresh homemade pickles for your next holiday party?
