Mastering Vegetable Fermentation

You’ve heard fermenting is good for you and it seems everyone is fermenting something these days. This class includes hands-on demonstrations and taste-testing the culinary possibilities of fermented vegetables. Bring your questions, your projects gone wrong*, your curiosity and an appetite to taste the wonderful flavors brought to you by fermentation. We will focus on artistry and creating a flavor arsenal of fermented goodies for your refrigerator. This safe and healthful technique will add to your culinary skills. We will use seasonally available vegetables and you will go home with a jar of your own kraut to watch bubble on the counter. *As a bonus we invite you to bring a ferment you’d like to troubleshoot.
