Come and see some of the finer points of the lost arts of cuisine: curing and smoking foods; making perfect cheese; the effects of properly developed marinades and dry rubs; and basic preserving and pickling. While this is not a hands-on program and will be delivered in Victoria University's culinary lecture theatre, there will be tastings and sampling galore.

Do you have memories of climbing the pantry to reach down those delicious bottled plums in the Fowlers jars in the pantry? Do you have your grandmother's big old ceramic pickled onion pot and wish it were still full of her delicious onions? Do you trawl the Farmers markets sampling smoked meats that take you back to your childhood? This class with give you some simple tips and finer points of the food arts that we have lost touch with. This class will have you energised to go home and try it for yourself.
