Livestream: Veggie Fermentation
In this virtual workshop we will discuss the basics of lactofermentation, the science behind how it works, the health benefits, and how you can do it yourself. This class is designed as a hands-on demonstration; ingredient and equipment lists will be sent out in advance of class if you’d like to work along with the instructor from the comfort of your own home. If you’d like to just watch and learn “webinar-style”, feel free! The first part of the session will be discussion based, followed by getting our hands dirty making mixed vegetable ferments. No experience is necessary, but everyone should come to class with a curious mind and expect to create a jar of a ferment and leave with fermentation fervor! This class will be led by Christa Gowen, a fermentation enthusiast who has been turning stray vegetables into delicious ferments for over a decade. Her favorite is radicchio with fennel seed and lemon zest. She lives in Essex with her husband and son. Class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform, and instructions for downloading the platform and joining the livestream will be emailed to participants in advance.
