Show 494, October 8, 2022: Scott Kaylin, “The Pickle Man” of Kaylin + Kaylin Pickles, Original Farmers Market Part Two

Scott Kaylin of Kaylin + Kaylin Pickles

“Every New Yorker knows the satisfaction of biting into the perfect pickle. Whether it’s a family recipe passed down from generations, or your go-to cart in the middle of Manhattan, one never has to venture too far to find their favorite, tasty treat.”

“After spending almost 30 years working in NYC, Scott Kaylin (aka “The Pickle Man”) found himself on the West Coast becoming his best self. However, one thing was missing: New York pickles. Well, honestly, even just an edible pickle. And that’s when Scott realized he had no choice but to make it easy for everyone, regardless of which coast they call home, to enjoy what he grew up knowing, loving, and suddenly wanting more than ever before. Kaylin + Kaylin Pickles was the inspired result.”

“Pickles bring people happiness. Scott witnessed this first hand in the spring of 2020, one month after opening the first pickle-tasting bar at The Original Farmer’s Market at 3rd St. & Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles. Week after week, even through a global pandemic, customers kept calling, reaching out, and coming back for their favorite flavors of spicy, sour, and sweet –– ensuring we would not only survive, but make it out on the other side. From there, the idea of Kaylin + Kaylin was solidified.” 

“Whether looking for pickles that are fermented, brined, the perfect addition to any recipe, or a salty, standalone snack, each of Kaylin + Kaylin’s flavors are crafted to cure any craving, and keep tastebuds buzzing for more. Kaylin + Kaylin brings a modern approach to a timeless food that can be enjoyed wherever, whenever, and by whomever.”

Think you hate pickles? Scott modestly suggests that you try their Honey Mustard Pickles. They are sweet, tangy and the combo logically makes no sense but, boy, does it work. The clear majority of guests who sample the Honey Mustard at the Kaylin + Kaylin Pickle-Tasting Bar become converts. No honey is used so it’s Vegan….

Scott takes a further pause from his busy pickle-tasting bar at the Original Farmers Market to continue as our guest.
