The Vinegar Cupboard with Angela Clutton
Join award-winning food writer and historian Angela Clutton as she takes you on a journey into the history and significance of this everyday ingredient. With increasing recognition of the importance of vinegar to balance and enhance flavours, this store-cupboard staple is having a resurgence.
Her debut book The Vinegar Cupboard has just been published to huge acclaim, and in this session Angela will guide you through the culinary usefulness and global heritage of this ancient ingredient, talking you through how different vinegars are made and how to make best use of it in your food – and drinks. You’ll get an opportunity to try some of the best artisan vinegars around, exploring the different flavour profiles and how to know which vinegars to buy. She’ll teach you how acidity can play an important role in cooking, and you’ll have a chance to sample some dishes that demonstrate the important role vinegar can play in your everyday cooking.
