Founder, McVicker Pickles

Kelly McVicker discovered the fine (and yummy) art of pickling the old-fashioned way: through her grandmothers. When she moved to San Francisco, she perfected her traditional recipes, and her innovative pickle and mustard blends went on to win first place in three categories at the 2012 Eat Real Festival. Today, Kelly shares her passion for canning, preserving, and pickling through teaching workshops (including a TEDx talk), running the website The Can Can Girls along with her childhood best friend Heidi Brown, and leading operations at her company, McVicker Pickles.
