Featured At : James Beard Foundation's Taste America, Los Angeles

We were beyond thrilled when asked to participate in the James Beard Foundation's Taste America LA events. On Friday night, our pickles were featured in a silent auction bid with goodies from heavy hitters Chef Edward Lee and Le Creuset. On Saturday at Sur La Table, we sampled our pickles while featured Chef Aarón Sánchez gave a cooking class and book signing.

Baia Pasta's Thai Red Curry Kamut with Pickled Ginger Carrots

You would think the lovely folks at Oakland-based Baia Pasta have their hands full, making small-batch, slow-dried, artisanal pasta with organic, American-grown grains. Somehow, they also have time to keep their Instagram feed full of delicious-looking concoctions, such as this farmers market salad with their Thai Red Curry flavored Whole Kamut ringlets and our Pickled "Ginger & Spice" Carrots.

From Baia: "This hot mess of a plate was really delicious and it features our experimental batch of Thai Red Curry flavored Whole Kamut® ringlets with loads of farmers' market goodies. Thai Red Curry flavored whole Kamut® ringlets + onion + summer squash + yellow bell pepper + charred corn + charred shishito peppers + cilantro + basil + scallions + Pernicious Pickling's Ginger & Spice pickled carrots + Other Brother Co.'s Smooth olive oil."

Fathers & Daughters

Running a small business is often an All Hands On Deck endeavor. But we also see it as a way to get B's teenage daughter to put down her iPhone, tell her friends she'll hang tomorrow instead, and spend some one-on-one time with her dad. We love being able to offer a "summer job" where we get to connect with her, hear the latest High School gossip, and share the art and business of pickling.
