Atlas Obscura Fan Favorites: The Art of Pickling with Liz and Jeff

September 23, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Dive into pickling traditions with the co-owners of NYC’s Gefilteria, Liz Alpern and Jeff Yozkowitz!

Fermentation may be all the rage these days in quarantine, but the process reflects ancient wisdom, born of times when resourcefulness was a way of life. Join Gefilteria co-owners Jeffrey Yoskowitz and Liz Alpern to dive into the art of preserving and lacto-fermenting fruits and vegetables. We’ll talk through Jewish pickling traditions and demonstrate how to work with ingredients you probably have at home. You’ll see how easy it is to make this technique part of your life and feel inspired and empowered to try it yourself. We’ll also explore the ways in which fermentation is critical to good digestion and strong immune systems, and we’ll touch upon the Jewish story that has influenced the ways we ferment at The Gefilteria.
