LET’S MAKE IT LAST!
In an anti-bacterial age, fermentation is quickly becoming a lost art. We are here to reclaim it as an energy efficient food-preservation technique which is rooted in our cultural histories. We are captivated and inspired by the way fermented foods engage our senses and enhance whole food eating.
Discover the science and unique flavours of fermented vegetables around the world. From classic sauerkrauts to pickled Asian vegetables to the spicy and tangy flavours of South American cuisine. Every one will have the opportunity to make a custom kraut. Bring a curious appetite.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop we will talk about everything PROBIOTICS and fermentation. Alexis & Natalie of Edible Alchemy will introduce to you the importance of your own microbiome by introducing fermented foods, traditional and cultural uses, nutrition and the microbiology behind their creation. We will also discuss resources as well as tips and safety tricks of this culinary art form.
In the first part of the workshop we will have an open discussion to what fermentation has or has NOT been in our lives. Alexis will talk about the effects, benefits and long term effects of probiotic foods, as well as the cultural uses and stories regarding fermentation. At this time we will sample a few fermented items to enhance our learning.
In the second part of the workshop we will be creating our own personal fermented vegetables with guidance and also absolute freedom, as fermented foods are always incredibly unique!
Everyone should come with a curious appetite an, open mind, a glass jar (500 ml / 1ltr) with a good fitting lid and some vegetables that you enjoy eating (such as cabbage, kale, beets, apples, onions, peppers, radishes & herbs). Everyone will leave with a jar of delicious, custom made vegetable kraut to observe & enjoy eating during the weeks ahead.
Enjoy having tasty treats in your belly, and a head full of knowledge.
The workshop will be lead by the bubbly Alexis Goertz & Natalie Lieske, bacteria baristas from Edible Alchemy CoLaboratory.
