Cost: $175.00

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 do fermented foods improve your digestive health by increasing digestive enzymes and promoting the growth of healthy gut flora, but they also enhance the 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.

The Wild Winter Fermentation workshop will focus on creating your own:

1. Tasty seasonal sauerkraut
2. Delicious & nutritious kimchi
3.  A Nutritious beet & fruit kvass drink

What do I bring?

Please bring along an apron & two sterilized wide-mouth glass jars (each with a capacity of 2 cups) in order to bring home your ferments.

Sydney Community College, Rozelle Campus
To book:

Learn how to create your own wild fermented seasonal vegetables and naturally cultured 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!

Vegan Dumplings


Dumplings mine 1



It’s the weekend and you and your friends have dumplings on your mind — it’s only natural. Dumpling or “stuffed pocket” is the one type of food that seems to be universally popular. It’s healthy comfort food that can be made with the simplest vegetarian ingredients. Every culture has its own style and flavour. Join me to explore different cultural dumplings, 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. We will explore a range of international vegetarian dumplings: Tempeh and veg. steamed or fried Gyoza, Vegetable and Kim Chi Momo’s, popular in Tibet and Nepal, Vegan Kofta potato dumplings.
