While that trendsetter pie is feeling all super-hot about itself these days, let us not turn our back on yesterday's trend of pickling and canning. Chicks With Knives is lending a hand for one-night next week with the return of its pickle pop-up shop, "Perishable." A little like that Harry & David's pop-up, albeit for a less grandmotherly crowd, Perishable will present samples of the chefs' twelve varieties of pickles for people to place orders on, as well as their original bacon jam (sorry bacon, your days are dwindling until you leave cupcakes and start invading pie). The Chicks promise their pickles, which come in varieties like blueberry aigre doux, curried Asian pear, and cucumber, are never hot-processed or canned, with a shelf-life of about two weeks. In addition to pickle samples, drinks, door-prizes, and a general whoop-tee-do is planned at the Melrose location they're taking over next Thursday. For a full-list of the pickles on offer, look below.
