Cornersmith: Author talk and preserving demonstration


Cornersmith are leaders in food waste reduction and they’re at the forefront of the pickling trend too. Following on from the best-selling first book, co-founder Alex Elliott-Howery and Cornersmith head chef and “waste warrior” Sabine Spindler, make vegetables the hero of the plate in Salads and Pickles.

Come along for a talk and demonstration with Alex, who will show you some easy preserving recipes and tastings from the book.

“This book is an extension of our shared love of vegetables,” says Alex, “as well as a bit of a roadmap for where we think the future of food needs to head; more vegetables, less meat; more cooking from scratch; less waste, more preserving; more sharing and community building.”

Salads and Pickles contains no diets, no superfoods and no guilt. It is just good food with more taste and the added benefit of cutting down food waste. With a focus on seasonal salads, pickles and preserving, the book also includes dozens of simple ideas for fresh ingredients that might otherwise be thrown away.

Alex, who teaches the popular pickling and preserving workshops at the Cornersmith cooking school, the Picklery, shows how having a pantry of pickles and preserves quickly makes a meal more interesting and how your can bottle the best of the season to use at any time of year.

This is food that is good for you and the planet.
