You can use it to make a salad dressing, pickle with it, marinade meat or fish, or toss through roasted vegetables or fruits but there is so much more to vinegar than shaking on your chips. Join award winning food writer and historian Angela Clutton as she talks about her fascinating and unique book The Vinegar Cupboard and demonstrates the many great ways vinegars can be used to balance and bring flavour.

The range of vinegars on the market are expanding rapidly, and you can easily find fruit, herb, sherry, cider, malt, rice, balsamic and many types of red and white wine vinegars (from rioja through to champagne) on your supermarket shelves. There aren’t too many ingredients which manage to bring flavour and adaptability to recipes and are actively good for you.

Tipped to be the hottest cooking ingredient of 2019, this event will encourage all you home cooks out there to work with the many varieties of vinegar in your kitchen and highlight how we can all benefit from vinegar in our diet!

Tickets: £5 (redeemable against a signed copy of The Vinegar Cupboard). Includes a glass of wine or soft drink on arrival. Tickets available from the bookshop or purchase online (with booking fee).
