If you are a lover of pickled food, check out these two events this week in Durham.
▪ On Thursday, July 23, the Museum of Life and Science is hosting a Science of Sour event from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The event blurb says, “If you like pickles and poi, stinky tofu and soy sauce then this is the event for you.”
The event includes pickle vendors, bread bakers, brewers, distillers, scientists and cheesemakers: anyone who has some expertise in fermentation. To see a complete list of presenters and vendors, go to nando.com/scienceofsour.
Tickets cost $20.30 for museum members, $25.30 for the public or $50 if you want to attend the event and a sauerkraut workshop at 5:30 p.m.
The museum is at 433 W. Murray Ave.
▪ Then from noon-3 p.m. Saturday, July 25, there is PickleFest Durham at the Rickhouse event space.
The event is free and open to the public. The Rickhouse is at 609 Foster St.
Note: I’ll be on hand selling copies of my book, “Pickles and Preserves,” at both events.
