Description

In the sunlit kitchen of memories, where time marinates in the flavors of the past, vinegar emerges as a potent elixir, infusing each dish with a tangy note of nostalgia. Just as Proust’s madeleines evoke memories of times gone by, the mere scent of vinegar can transport one to distant kitchens and cherished moments.

In the labyrinthine alleys of Combray, where the air is redolent with the scent of blooming linden trees, vinegar lingers in the background, its presence subtle yet unmistakable. It is the secret ingredient in Madame Swann’s vinaigrette, a touch of acidity that elevates the simplest of salads to gastronomic heights.

In the bustling markets of Balbec, where vendors hawk their wares amidst a cacophony of voices and colors, vinegar takes center stage, its amber hues glistening in the sunlight like liquid gold. Here, amidst the hustle and bustle, one can find the finest balsamic vinegars, aged to perfection in wooden barrels, their complex flavors a testament to the artistry of time.

And in the tranquil gardens of Tansonville, where the roses bloom in riotous profusion and the air is heavy with the scent of jasmine, vinegar finds its place in the culinary creations of Françoise, the faithful cook. With a deft hand and a discerning palate, she adds a splash of vinegar to her sauces and dressings, imbuing each dish with a depth of flavor that speaks of tradition and craftsmanship.

In the world of Proust, vinegar is more than just a condiment—it is a symbol of memory, a thread that weaves through the tapestry of life, connecting past, present, and future in a delicate dance of taste and sensation. So let us raise a glass to vinegar, that humble yet indispensable ingredient, and savor the memories it brings with each tangy sip.

Notes on fermentation

Unlike the pickled products you might buy at a supermarket, our fermented food and drinks are unpasteurised and unfiltered and contain live bacterial cultures. The ferment’s taste will develop with time. The fermentation process naturally produces bubbles of carbon dioxide. A film of white kahm yeast may form of the surface of the food. This is benign and can simply be discarded.
