You’ll learn to preserve the natural way – focusing on fermenting and discover how live foods come to life! Join one of our little, cosy classes to discover everything about lactic fermention, and why it’s so good for us. It’s relaxed and fun, you can ask questions, chat and of course sample many fermented foods.
You’ll leave with your homemade jars (alive and fizzing) and your recipes – inspired to create, experiment and ferment all on your own!
Kimchi, Sauerkraut & more
We offer a beginners guide and an introduction into the how’s, what’s, why’s and the magic of lacto fermentation, as we look at preservation (the natural way). In our small classes of 4 to max of 8 people, we will discuss everything you need to know about lactic fermentation techniques particularly around vegetables, and touch on their beneficial effects on our bodies. During the workshop you will get to try various live lacto fermented goodies we have on the go as well make 3 types of fermented vegetables - a traditional kimchi, a sauerkraut and another type of fermented seasonal vegetable. You will get to take home 3 jars of fermenting vegetable goodness (which will cost over £30 in a health food store), to observe your creations as they ferment, along with the recipes and the knowledge to experiment further at home.
Kombucha & Fermented Drinks
Come learn the wonders of kombucha brewing. Get a better understanding of lacto fermented beverages such as kvass, tepache & kombucha , as we look at preservation (the natural way). The focus is on kombucha which is an all-natural, raw fermented tea. It’s a delicious dose of goodness for your gut, low in sugar and packed full of beneficial acids, lactic bacteria, enzymes and antioxidants.
In our small classes (max of 10 people), we will discuss everything you need to know about fermenting & brewing your own kombucha at home. You will receive your own scoby to take home with you in order to begin brewing your own kombucha.
During the workshop you will get to try several different flavours of kombucha we have on the go as well as taste some fermented vegetables and live kefir. You will learn how to create your own kombucha flavours, how to create the lovely natural fizz, how to care for your scoby, maintain it and grow it so you may produce kombucha endlessly. You will leave with recipes and the knowledge to experiment further at home.
This stuff tastes a lot better than anything store bought, most likely contains more beneficial bacteria and will save you loads of cash in the long run (thats if youre buying it from stores at the moment)
