To book:

Learn how to create your own wild fermented Late Summer seasonal vegetables and naturally cultured miso pickles at this practical evening workshop in Rozelle.

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 season’s organic winter fruit and veg.

You’ll come away with a whole lot of knowledge on how to prepare your own wild ferments  ( no starter required), and brined pickles. You’ll discover how you can add them into 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 two wild ferments to be cared for at home later… two-jars-full!

Learn how to make and stuff your own vegan dumplings at this practical evening workshop in Rozelle.

Join author and wholefood educator, Marcea Klein, for a tour of the world’s favourite dumplings – from Gyoza to Momos and more.

Join the workshop to explore different cultural takes on the humble dumpling flavours, shapes and cooking styles – to take home and try with family and friends. Stuffed with your favourite sweet or savoury fillings, it’s impossible to stop at just a few of these salty and moreish parcels whether they are steamed, boiled, baked, pan-fried or deep-fried.

Using both pre-made and freshly rolled wrappers, we will explore a range of international vegetarian dumplings, including:

  • Tofu, Tempeh or sauerkraut vegetable Gyoza, with sesame dipping sauce
  • Steamed seasonal vegetarian Tibetan Momos
  • Indian Kofta potato dumplings with spicey Tomato sauce
