Who Doesn’t Love a Pickle
Pickling is the process of preserving or extending the shelf life of food. Eating locally and seasonally becomes more accessible when we pickle seasonal fruits and vegetables and preserve them for times when they are out of season. The pickling procedure typically affects the food’s texture, taste and flavour, creating a delicious taste explosion that will spice up any dish you’re making. Who doesn’t love a pickle? Lev has been cooking professionally for 10 years and owns the popular Toronto restaurant, Lox + Schmear, where they specialize in small batched fish smoking. Their pickled red onions are a fan favourite and can be found on many of their delicious bagels, complete with lox and cream cheese. Over the years, Lev has played around with various pickling recipes and wants to share their love for the pickle by teaching folks the basics and sending them off with a taste for sweetness.
