Sample text

During the recession that was caused, many believe, by greedy corporations, consumers preferred to give their money to small start-ups, craftspeople whose stories they also wanted to know, much like those of the farmers a few years prior. This growing food revolution was also catering to the new “foodie” culture— those who were inspired by the Food Network and wanted more complicated techniques, new and interesting flavor profiles, or food with a story—people for whom traditional fare was not adventurous enough, or did not reflect their own personality.

Also common among some non-fermenting picklers with whom I spoke was the connection to family knowledge attained through pickling. Learning to pickle from a family member was the most popular form of home preserving education in both a 1975 and a 2001 survey—although one wonders if that has changed in the past decade-plus as pickling classes have proliferated. Travis Grillo of Grillo’s Pickles, and Betsey Wilton of Our Favorite Foods, were among the picklers who noted that they used, at least initially, a family recipe to make pickles for personal consumption and gifts, but, for similar reasons, decided to turn their pickling passion into a business.

Fermenters Uri Laio of Brassica and Brine, Alex Hozven of Cultured Pickles, and Julie O’Brien and Richard Climenhage of Firefly Kitchens are also committed to the health aspect of their product for consumers and the environment. While those committed to lacto-fermented foods have long been on the fringe, these ideas of healthy eating are starting to become more mainstream, like the organic and the locavore movements of the past few decades. What is different, however, among all of these picklers—and across the various industries—is the increased integration of the new “hip entrepreneur” into the traditional food marketplace—which is different from the hippies and back-to-the-landers of the first countercuisine movement who were either content to stay on the fringe, never compromising their initial mission—or grew to a point where they were no longer representing the health foods and claims that first inspired them.
