Kylee Newton ‘Shrub Cocktail’ masterclass with Our/London Vodka
17th August 2017 | 7pm – 9.30pm
Join us for an intimate evening of preserving with Kylee Newton who will be showing guests how to make Shrubs (drinking vinegars) from seasonal produce, followed by canapés incorporating some of Kylee’s favourite preserving techniques – ferments, chutneys, pickles and jams. The Our/London Vodka bar team will show guests how to make cocktails using Kylee’s shrubs and cordials and will be expertly drinks-pairing her canapés with Our/London cocktails using preserved ingredients.
The Preserved @ Our/London Distillery series has been designed to show the many ways that preserved foods can be enjoyed and celebrated convivially. Throughout the spring and summer, Our/London are opening the doors to their Hackney Downs vodka distillery and bringing together the greatest minds, palates and guts of the food world for a series of classes, workshops and supper-clubs. Learn about fermenting and gut health with Alana Holloway, enjoy some home-made pickles with Freddie Janssen and Seb Myers and savour the summer’s bounty with Tom Hunt, Joey O’Hare and Olia Hercules, all over vodka cocktails crafted by the Our/London Vodka team.
Kylee Newton is a self-taught preserver, cook and author who has been making jams, chutneys and pickles in Hackney for the past six years under the name of ‘Newton & Pott’. Kylee’s first book ‘The Modern Preserver’ received world-wide critical acclaim, whilst her popular “waste not, want not” philosophy and creative flavour combinations have ensured that her artisanal jams, pickles, chutneys and preserves are stocked in the best markets, delis & food halls around London. Kylee regularly holds masterclasses in the art of pickling and preserving.
£30 Includes two cocktails on the night (one welcome drink and one that guests will make themselves) as well as canapés and a cordial or shrub to take home in a beautiful Le Parfait jar.
