Florida Shrimp & Pickles
Join James Beard award nominee, Chef Brian Whittington for an afternoon of Florida shrimp and pickles! Inspired by the history of our region, this workshop begins with a discussion of the roots and modern day shrimping practices in St. Augustine and progresses into a presentation by Chef Whittington himself.
This workshop will offer insights on how to make pickled veggies and shrimp, why people pickle, and what happens to food and flavor in the pickling process. Brendan Burke, local archeologist and shrimping historian, will also be there to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for local seafood!
Admission includes a light lunch of Florida shrimp on toast and house made pickles, shrimp and pickles presentations, wine or beer, plus 3 take-home recipes from Chef Whittington.
New to the popular Taste of St. Augustine event, the Taste Academy will offer a variety of educational opportunities to learn more about local food sources, giving guests a backstage pass to learn from local food artisans and chefs. The Academy offers food enthusiasts the opportunity to delve deeper into our area’s culinary culture. Workshop guests will also receive a free admission to A Taste of St. Augustine - a celebration of local food, local breweries/wineries and local music on Saturday, April 23rd, at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.
