Saturday Market August 11 – Mortars for Mixing

Mixing and Mashing and Emulsifying! We had a lot of fun talking about emulsifications during our Salad demo. The thick, creamy sauces and dips that come from proper emulsification satisfy the hungriest eaters. Making them yourself means no strange chemicals intended to extend shelf life.

Mayonnaise and aioli, creamy flavourful sauces and dressings. We’ll talk about mortars, the oldest tool in the kitchen. We show you how to clean a mortar before you use it for the first time (not necessary, but nice), how to season a mortar (great for remediation if you have strong flavours that are stuck in the stone), and when you should be pulling out this great tool instead of the blender or food processor.


This event is part of a full lineup of Workshops and Show & Tell events throughout the Market Season. Get connected on your favourite social media network, or sign up for our email community to stay in the loop for the workshops you’re looking forward to. We’ll be posting the videos and key takeaways after each event, so if you miss the chance to be here in person, you can still gain the knowledge!

Bring (or submit) your questions, bring your tools, and we’ll give you our recommendations! The live feed will be on Facebook through the event and our business page, and we’ll update this post afterwards with the video itself.
