Multiple sessions available from 10 Oct 2021 to 5 Dec 2021
An in-depth introduction into everything you need to know about lactic fermentation techniques. Learn how to make sauerkraut, kimchi, preserved lemons and other vegetables and fruit ferments. Discover new ways of combining these ancient foods into everyday meals. At the end of the course you will have three items to ferment at home along with recipes and the knowledge and confidence to experiment further.
We ask participants to bring 3 glass jars and a carrier bag or other suitable bag (Kilner or Fido type jars are best but you can use any jar), as this helps us to keep the cost of the course down and encourages the re-use of old jars.
Medium size jars are usually best for most people. We will be making 300-400g recipes but you need to leave some head space between the jar contents and the lid, but not bigger than 500ml. Also you will probably want to use the jars after the initial batch to make your own ferments at home so you may want to buy jars big enough to suit you and your family needs. It is always better to have a jar that is too big rather than too small.
We appreciate that there will be circumstances whereby you will need to cancel your course or change the date. Given two or more weeks notice we are happy to offer a full refund. For cancellations within two weeks of the class date a full refund will be offered if we can refill your booking or 50% refund if not. If the notice is given 1 week before the course, the refund is at the discretion of The Fermentarium
