Let's talk Vinegar

Zuursalon: Vinegar edition. Friday July 8, 20:30

Ever wondered what that strange layer of growth on top of your vinegar was? Mother of vinegar is not only a cellulose and acetic acid bacteria substance which ferments alcohol into vinegar, it is also a fascinating bio-material. At the upcoming Zuursalon we take on the world of vinegar with Manfred Meeuwig, Simone van Thull, Stef Brok van Edits, and Meneer Wateetons bringing their expertise on vinegar pickling, speed vinegar, and vinegar Mothers.

Join us and trade your Mother for another!
