Brine Dining – Bruce’s Prime Pickle Company

by Garrett Snyder

Bruce Kalman, former head chef at The Churchill, left the stress and strife of professional kitchens earlier this year for a more Zen-like pursuit.

In other words, he became a professional pickle-maker.

“I’ve always loved pickling,” says Kalman. “When you put great ingredients in the jar you get a great result.”

Those who remember The Churchill’s popular pickle plate will be delighted by Prime Pickles’ six varieties ($10 to $13 a jar), made from the chef’s personal recipes.
