Clarification on venue fee for Aug. 10 event

From: user 1.
Sent on: Tuesday, July 9, 2013 5:08 PM

It was brought to my attention that my previous email may not have been stated clearly regarding the fee for the August 10th event (below). There is a $5 venue fee for those who have not purchased annual meetup memberships.

  • If you have purchased a $25 East Bay Raw Food Meetup annual membership, the venue fee is waived, but you will need to confirm with me by email of your intention to attend this event.
  • If you have NOT purchased a meetup membership and want to attend, go ahead click on the RSVP link below to get to the RSVP page.

Thanks, and sorry for any confusion.

I hope to see you on August 10th.

A Tour & Tasting at the Cultured Pickle Shop

Saturday, August 10 | 1pm-3pm

The Cultured Pickle Shop: 800 Bancroft Way, Suite 105, Berkeley, CA 94710

Come see the fermenting underbelly of the Bay Area’s master pickle shop!

Dry farmed tomato and black peppercorn kombucha. Watermelon rind kimchi. Burdock root pickled in sake lees. Indian pickled limes. Vintage kraut. Beets pickled with Thai chili and basil.

To many, the pickle is a sour cucumber, period. The Cultured Pickle Shop is on a mission to end this bias. On any given day, one can visit the tasting area and sample ten varieties of sauerkraut, four varieties of kimchi, fourteen different types of seasonal specialty pickles, eight different flavors of kombucha tea, two sake lees pickles, one rice bran pickle, and, of course, the ubiquitous Classic Dill. Global pickling traditions of the past interact dynamically with the Northern California food shed in Cultured’s Berkeley shop.

In this revealing tour hosted by co-founder Kevin Farley you will:

  • Go on a tour of the production area and fermentation room.
  • See and taste the Cultured artistry by sampling an assortment of their exquisitely crafted pickles.
  • Hear the fascinating story of how they learned their art form and gradually grew their business.
  • Get inspired by a story of a small business that has seen success -- even during the harsh economic downturn -- through their absolute dedication to the highest quality ingredients.
  • Understand the immune, digestive, and overall health benefits of adding these traditional foods to your daily diet.
  • Have the opportunity to ask Kevin specific questions.

About the Owners and Founders:
Kevin Farley and Alex Hozven have been fermenting professionally for 17 years. Beginning the business as a micro miso production company in 1996, they soon after added sauerkraut to their product list. In 2001 they halted miso production to focus on sauerkraut. In 2007 they opened The Cultured Pickle Shop and began to expand their product line to include a wide array of innovative, lact-fermented, seasonally-based pickles as well as kombucha. They also study and showcase the age-old pickling traditions of Japan, a life-long passion for both Kevin and Alex.

Kevin and Alex have been featured in the New York Times, Food & Wine, Edible East Bay, East Bay Express, the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as on National Public Radio’s Science Friday radio show.

Don’t miss this rare Meetup opportunity to explore the inner workings of a local raw culinary and entrepreneurial wonderland.
