Dilly! Dilly! Where are the pickle lovers out there? Fishtown Pickle Project just announced that their always sold out event “Feast of the Seven Pickles” is returning for the third year. This year’s feast will take place on Tuesday December 19th at Martha located at 2113 E. York Street and will feature a pickle-centric multi-course dinner.
Fishtown Pickle Project owners Niki Toscani and Mike Sicinski are pulling all stops for this year’s “Philly Favorites” edition which will include scrapple, a cheesesteak, an interpretation of a beloved Tastykake®, pickle gelato from a new gelateria, and more.
In an effort to make the event more inclusive, the third round of the Feast of the Seven Pickles will include three seatings with 50 seats available per timeslot, at 5, 7, and 9 p.m. In addition to the seven-course pickle-centric menu, this year’s event will include a partnership with Felt+Fat, which created a special edition Fishtown Pickle Project tumbler that Toscani referred to as “the perfect charcuterie board accessory,” which will be available for purchase. There will also be a mini holiday market featuring local provisions including Mural City Cellars wine, Martha merchandise, Fishtown Pickle Project products and merch, and more.
The Philly Favorites Edition menu will include Oyster with Hawaiian pizza tepache mignonette; Winter Root Salad; Creamy Pickle Soup with a soft pretzel (served in the special edition tumbler); Pastrami Smoked Salmon with 999 Island Sauce, pickled red onion, and fermented kohlrabi slaw; Delicata Squash with scrapple stuffing; Shaved Ribeye Cheesesteak with white root whiz, pickled long hot, and sweet pepper ketchup; and a Peanut Butter Krimpet from Sweet T’s Bakeshop, served with FPP’s Philly Dilly Deli pickle gelato from Vita, Rittenhouse’s new gelateria, for dessert. The menu is a complete collaboration between Toscani, Sicinski, and Martha Executive Chef Andrew Magee and General Manager Dan Miller.
Tickets for the dinner cost $95 apiece, and include a welcome drink of bubbly (NA option available), as well as a donation to Philabundance on behalf of Preston and Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger. Tickets can be purchased beginning Wednesday, November 29th at noon at fishtownpickles.com.
Fishtown Pickle Project was created by Chef Mike Sicinski and dietician Niki Toscani in 2018 after gifting handcrafted pickles to their wedding guests. Their small-batch fare is purposefully crafted using all-natural ingredients and bold, culinary-inspired flavors, sourcing cucumbers and other produce from local farms including Muzzarelli Farms in Vineland, New Jersey.
