Fermentation Workshop: The Lab - Experiments in Culinary Dissidence.
Sun 10 January 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Come to our first workshop of the season! A radical laboratory for the community! A co-created space where we can play with ideas, perspectives and most importantly, our food!
Our experiments begin with a good natter on the politics of our health and food, developing into a juicy line up of new and innovative demonstrations to supercharge your own fermentin' potential and to get your kitchen off to a banging start in 2016.
The practical segment of the workshop will be where we try to animate our recent crowdfunding objectives. As a group we'll work with an array of different ingredients intercepted on their way to landfill - coming together to utilize our new fermentin' toolkit to produce a distinct and quirky product that will be redistributed sometime later when it's reached a fine potency!
What to expect:
A fast paced 40min presentation on the 'politics of fermentation'.
A line up of interactive demonstrations that teach you creative ways to ferment, using both dry-salting and brining techniques! Recipes to include: 'cumin basil beets', 'Bahn Mi pickles', 'roasted garlic and raisin kraut' and 'sweet potato fry nests'.
A demonstration on 'kvass' - a nouishing probiotic beverage - by the boys at The Old Tree Cooperative.
A practical session where you get to put your new found skills to use in puzzling out an appropriate way to ferment our most recent haul of intercepted veg!
Take a portion home with you!
A bloody good time!
