Everything you ever wanted to know about fermented vegetables and drinks! Come explore the transformative process of micro-organisms in the kitchen!

In this class we will learn to harness the microscopic world to enhance flavour, nutrition, and digestability, turning raw organic ingredients into foods and condiments which far surpass their commercially available counterparts. We'll learn about sauerkraut, kim chi, dill pickles, pickled beets, and fermented fruits.

Then we'll move on to explore all the drinks: we will learn how to "catch" a wild ginger beer bug, whey sodas, the difference between kombucha and vinegar and how to make them all. You will taste a variety of finished products and take home a wealth of concepts to experiment with.
