Fermented as a way of preserving foods for millenia and the process is used to make many of our favourite food and drink including cheese, chocolate, wine and coffee! With the discovery of the gut microbiome in more recent times, fermented foods are now known to have many health benefits and have the potential of providing the body with important probiotics.
In this full day workshop, you will be introduced to the wonderful world of fermented foods. Whether you are new to fermenting or looking to hone your skill, there will be something for everyone. You will learn about the process of fermentation, the variety of fermented foods available, how to use them and the many health benefits these nutrient rich foods can offer.
This will be a hands-on course where you will get to have a go at making your own jars of fermented vegetables from a choice of organic locally grown produce! You will also learn about a variety of fermented drinks including kombucha and kefir with live cultures to take home and as many tasters as you can handle.
You will learn how to make:
By the end of the session you will have the skills and knowledge to be able to make delicious fermented food and drink from the comfort of your own home. You will also have access to the Consciously Cultured fermenting group on whatsapp and facebook which will give you access to as much support as you need in all your fermenting endeavours.
Classes are nice and small with max of 8 participants, meaning there's plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the day.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The course will be run by owner and found of Award-Winning Delea Fermented Foods, Caitlin Walsh. Caitlin was introduced to fermented foods and the microbiome whilst on her travels. Having suffered with gut problems for most of her life Caitlin has found regularly eating fermented foods has improved her own health dramatically. Unable to find fermented foods locally in Cornwall she decided to set up Delea as a way of sharing her knowledge and experience of these delicious and nutritious foods in order to get more people fermenting!
This is your chance to work closely with Caitlin, ask questions and get fermenting!
