Our friends at Vol. 1 Brooklyn have put together a video of author Jami Attenberg and pickler, gourmand, and Jewish pork scholar Jeffrey Yoskowitz making pickles together. (Get your minds out of the gutter.)

If you fancy a tutorial in how to pickle things, check out the video. If you fancy some smart thoughts on Jami Attenberg’s recently published novel The Middlesteins, our literary critic Adam Kirsch has got you covered here. If you fancy a profile on Jeffrey Yoskowitz’s project Pork Memoirs, I did a little something about it here.

I’ve set your afternoon agenda. You’re welcome.
