Festive Season Ferments!
Make sweet and savoury ferments & drinks for the holidays to give
the gift of wild ferments in our November festive season workshop!
Your health is your most important asset and adding fermented foods to your daily diet can be done easily from your own kitchen.
Consuming naturally fermented foods provides a multitude of health benefits. Not only Not only do fermented foods improve your digestive health by increasing enzymes and promoting the growth of healthy gut flora, they also enhance absorption of nutrients, help to boost the body’s immune system and more.
In this workshop you will explore more about the many health benefits of incorporating seasonal fermented foods into your diet and get hands-on as you learn how to prepare delicious and nutritious fermented food at home.
Time: 10.00am – 3.00pm
Cost: $ 145.00
The workshop will likely include some of these fermented foods:
Wild fermented Spicy Summer Sauerkraut
Marbled Cultured Eggs
Wild Fermented Eggplant
Tomato, Corn and Onion Salsa
Wild fermented Pineapple Ginger and Turmeric Sauerkraut
Blueberry and peach relish
Wild fermented Miso Tofu
Wild fermented Fruity Kvass
Join author and wholefood educator, Marcea Klein, for an evening of gutsy goodness, as you learn all about fermenting and pickling the pick of the festive season’s organic fruit and veg – including party season salsa, chutney and summery pickled watermelon rind.
You’ll come away with a whole lot of knowledge on how to prepare your own wild ferments to eat or drink (that’s when you use the liquid extracted from the produce, no starter required), and brined pickles. You’ll discover how you can add them to your daily diet, and why they’re so good for you. There’ll also be a demo on how to pickle with miso, plus a tasting of “ones we prepared earlier”.
Plus, you’ll take away a wild ferment and a pickle to be completed at home later… two-jars-full!
