The Modern Preserver- Pickle & Fermentation Masterclass with Kylee Newton
Thu 6 April 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 BST
Pickled & Fermented Food -how to eat it?
One of the biggest questions I get asked is “How do I eat these”- in this class you will make your very own homemade vinegar brine pickles and the start of a ferment, but will also be encouraged to incorporate them into everyday meals –with a few suggestions for good measure…
Your host Kylee Newton, owner of Newton&Pott and author of The Modern Preserver, will take you through the process of making vinegar brines and how these give your fruit and vegetables longevity and all their health benefits.
We talk the importance of preserving food, why it came about and go through good sterilization practice for longer lasting preserves. The class is a relaxed hands-on session teaching you how to make artisanal treats of Red Cabbage Sauerkraut and Gin Pickled Cucumber which you get to take home to eat or to gift to friends. It’s designed to give you the confidence with preserving in your home kitchen.
"We loved the Newton & Pott masterclass. Great, hands-on instruction in a relaxed format and a bag of goodies to take home too. I have actually pickled at home since too."

"Kylee's master class is a must! I was bought the book & the class as a present and I'm so glad I went as it gave me the confidence to dive into the recipes on my own. We had a lovely day pickling and jam making and got to watch the queen pickler work her magic! I thoroughly recommend her classes."
- Clara Baker
"As a lover of food and hater of waste, this masterclass has given me the confidence to get preserving. Kylee’s knowledge and passion are inspirational, and she makes what can seem a dark art, very doable, delicious and fun. The masterclass has given me a skill that will last longer than jam and the results shared with friends."
- Sarah Brown
"Not only did I leave Kylee's laden with five jars of her Cucumber and Beer Pickle, three jars of her Raspberry and Rose Jam and a generous side portion of life envy - but also an appreciation of the techniques that'll allow me to experiment away at home. Essentially, everything I was after."
- Carole Breen
"I really enjoyed meeting the lovely Kylee Newton at the Masterclass in April. She is such a talent - a font of knowledge which she is happy to share! She made the class fun and interesting and I learned a lot - who knew gin and cucumbers were a match made in heaven?? I wish Kylee continued success and urge you to buy her book, it will change your life!!!"
- Pauline Bryes
"The Newton and Pott masterclass was nothing short of wonderful - from my beautiful frilly apron to the armfuls of homemade pickles and jams we left with. Within an hour I had gifted a jar of each to a good friend - leaving me with a sense of gratification and he, warmth and gratitude - thus is the power of a good pickle. Kylee was a brilliant host while being a gentle and kind teacher. I have been singing her praises to anyone who will listen (and who've eaten my jam!) since."
