This workshop will teach you about vegetable ferments and cultured condiments. This two hour workshop focusses on the basics of fermenting in particular with vegetables. You will take home recipes and a jar of your own vegetables to continue fermenting at home. Following this, there will be a tasting of some pre-fermented examples.

In this 2 hour workshop, Christian will introduce you to the do's and dont's of fermenting, mold differences and brining techniques . You will be walked through the process before making your own batch to take home and ferment on your bench top.

You will take home your own veggie medley in a fermentation jar that you can use over and over.  Christian will have some of his own ferments (e.g. Kimchi) that you can try and buy on the night.

07 July 2017 • Fun with Fermenting

The Fun with Fermenting class delivered the fun! The presenter was very knowledgeable and helpful sharing interesting information on the science and associated health benefits of fermenting, before we got into the kitchen to create our very own vege medley. We received a fermenting jar as part of the class (great value for $). Overall a fun and informative learning experience. Hope there will be another class soon - I'll be there!
