Vadasz Deli

Alexandra Palace Market

Vadasz Deli specialise in lactic Acid fermentation - their sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles are traditionally cured using English cabbage, natural salt and spices. Based in Hackney, East London, they have been brining since 2011.

Their recipes are inspired by their family’s history and Hungarian Jewish heritage. their New Greens/1/2 Sours are based on the pickles Nick Vadasz’s Grandmother would make every the summer and have been received with great enthusiasm at the markets, respecting a long but now diminishing tradition of Jewish delis serving such pickles in London.

Fascinated by the taste and smell of sauerkraut and pickles from an early age, Nick is still excited by them and the magical process of lactic acid fermentation; transforming simple vegetables into something special; adding value, taste and preserving tradition.

Pickles, especially Sauerkraut and Kimchi, are original value added food heroes and there is also a growing interest in the health benefits of krauts and kimchis and the role of good bacteria in our diets.
