The Tenement Museum, Lower East Side Thursday August 2 2012 18:30
Author Sandor "Sandorkraut" Katz (The Art of Fermentation: An In-Depth Exploration of Essential Concepts and Processes from Around the World) examines Gotham's rich history of fermenting at this lecture and tasting. Learn about beers, pickled vegetables and preserved foods brought to NYC by various immigrant communities. Then watch Katz show off his kraut-crafting skills during a pickling demonstration. A tasting buffet stocked with Mother-in-Law's Kimchi, Barry's Tempeh and a "Jewish Kombucha" from the Gefilteria will ensure you don't get peckish; you can also score a signed copy of Katz's brining bible for $20.
