If you’ve been curious about raw cultured fruit and vegetables but felt unsure about how to bring these foods into your life, this is the workshop for you.

From dry-salting cabbage to make kimchi and sauerkraut, to pickling carrots and cucumbers, and fermenting seasonal fruits into delicious fizzy drinks, we’ll cover a variety of traditional ferments and methods.

We’ll discuss how these foods provide your gut flora with abundant friendly micro-organisms that help digest food, eliminate toxins and improve your immunity. It’s also a great way to extend the life of your garden produce.

There’ll be a wide variety of fermented foods and drinks to taste on the day plus a delicious home-made brunch. You’ll get to take a variety of SCOBY cultures (including kefir and kombucha) to continue your fermenting at home.

We will cover:

  • dry-salting, brining and liquid infusion methods
  • how to keep, store and use kefir and kombucha in your own kitchen
  • hands-on learning with ferments to make and take home.

I’m really enjoying eating the lovely ferments, the lemonade and kimchi are especially delicious! Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing, the workshop was really well run.”  Angela.
