Fermenting Food Workshop


Fermenting Food Workshop

On this hands-on workshop led by a former pathology graduate Kevan Palmer you'll learn the fascinating art of lacto-fermentation. He has years of experience with fermented food and bush craft. He will teach you the theory behind this process and the importance and benefits from maintaining a healthy gut.

You'll learn how to create Sauerkraut, making a batch to take home and ferment for yourself. You'll be taught how to make Kimchi, making  Kimchi, a punchy blend of Chinese cabbage, spring onions, salt and chilli. You'll learn the techniques on making, storing and using this lovely accompaniment. At the end of the session you’ll get to take this home. 

Your tutor for the session will cover the basics of making Yoghurt, Skyr and venture into the field of fermented drinks like Komboucha where you'll learn all about SCOBYS (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) and how these interact with each other to ferment some really interesting and gut friendly drinks which have been in use for centuries. 

Kevan will talk you through the process of making Water and Milk Kefir. You'll have the opportunity to taste these too. 

You'll also get to taste samples of fermented food throughout the course to build your knowledge and understanding of this fascinating process. Your tutor will be on hand to guide you and answer your questions throughout the workshop. At the end of the session you'll have the opportunity to purchase some materials and ingredients, so you can continue your lacto-fermenting at home.
