The hottest new culinary craze couldn’t be older or more humble: preserving. In a series of classes held in a renovated barn in East Moriches, chef Kevin Penner will be exploring some of the principle techniques of preserving: fermentation, brining, salt-curing, smoking and pressure canning. Penner, formerly executive chef at 1770 House in East Hampton, was, until recently, “culinary collaborator” at North Fork Table and Inn in Southold.
