Fermentation Workshop

Many of the foods we love and enjoy have been transformed through the use of fermentation and culturing. Some we are very familiar with like cheese, yogurt and alcohol, but many foods we regularly consume that we don’t typically think of as fermented foods use fermentation to enhance their flavors – chocolate, olives and cured salamis. Come join us for our fermentation workshop with ‘fermentalist’ Nicholas Zemp, where you’ll learn the basics of this ancient tradition, the many health benefits of consuming fermented foods, taste some delicious fermented foods and prepare your own crock of lacto-fermented vegetables.
