Course description

Learn how to create your own Japanese pickles – Tsukemono – at this practical evening workshop in Rozelle.

In Japan, they’ll pickle just about anything for a bit of gutsy goodness, so transport your tastebuds to Tokyo with your own home made healthy side dish of sour, sweet and spicy pickled vegetables.

In Japanese cuisine, tsukemono are a must for everyday meals or served with tea. As well as adding flavour, they are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fibre and cultures to promote digestive health.

Join this hands-on workshop to taste and create a wide range of mouth-puckering pickled veg.
