Have you always wanted to make your own fermented food products, but not quite sure how to get started at home? Traditional cultures have been fermenting foods for centuries: as a method to preserve food and based on their understanding of how cultured foods improve gut health. Join us for a hands-on fermenting workshop at where you will learn just how easy it really is!
Wholefoods cooking class instructor Andrea Ball from The Green Gourmet will take you through everything you need to know to make ferments in your own kitchen, including Andrea’s colourful take on a classic sauerkraut, mixed fermented vegetables and a delicious fermented salsa to enjoy in the warmer months. She will even demonstrate how quick and easy it is to ferment your own crème fraîche at home.
This class will include informative discussions with Andrea about all things fermented, hands-on sessions to make your own jar of all listed above, recipes and guidelines to take home, all the equipment needed, and a delicious selection of different fermented foods to nibble on throughout the night. And, of course, you’ll get to take your fabulous ferments home with you!
ABOUT ANDREA BALL
Through her company, The Green Gourmet, Andrea has been teaching and writing about cooking with wholefoods for over 25 years.
Growing up in Thailand, Andrea was inspired by the Buddhist vegetarians she met: their deep respect for the earth, their bodies and all living beings — and the deliciously nourishing food they created.
Andrea believes that good health and happiness begin in the kitchen and is passionate about teaching those around her all about the fabulous food you can create when you let fresh, local, seasonal produce take centre-stage.
Andrea has taught fermenting classes for a number of years through local food organisations such as Slow Food South Australia, as well as at luxurious food retreats in Bali.
