Upcoming Lectures

Kosher Dill Pickles! | Chef Ernest Miller
Thursday, June 1 from 6-8 PM at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

There is no pickle like a crisp, refreshing, classic Kosher Dill Pickle. Learn the art, science, and history of the king of pickles in this hands-on workshop that will have you taking home a jar filled with fermenting cucumbers. This class will teach you everything you ever wanted to know (but were afraid to ask) about this ancient craft, taught with humor and from more than a decade of experience.
