Introduction to Fermented Food and Drinks


Saturday 3rd February 2024Saturday 3rd February 2024

We invite you to an introductory 3 hour session to discover if making fermented food and drink is something you want to learn more about. We will make a super tasty Central American Sauerkraut called Curtido and teach you how to look after it when you get home. We will also sample some other ferments from our full day course so you can decide if you want to learn more!  

Fermentation was traditionally a method of storing food but is also commonly used in food production, coffee, wine and chocolate, three of the most consumed products in the world are all fermented during production.  Fermentation is also widely recognised for the health benefits associated with the good gut bacteria Lacto Bacillus which is naturally produced during the fermentation process.

Introducing fermented foods into your diet opens up a whole new range of textures, flavours and health benefits. It’s fun, healthy and tasty!

This is a very relaxed workshop, so come and have some fun.
