Event Details

Come along to our workshop: Food Fermentation for Health & Social Change on August 27th @ Silo - a radical laboratory for the community; a co-created space where we play with ideas, perspectives and most importantly, our food!

Our evening begins with a good natter on the politics of our health and food, developing into a juicy line up of new and innovative demonstrations by Brighton's leading fermentation artisans, to supercharge your own fermentin' potential and to get your kitchen off to a banging start this year!

In the practical segment of the workshop, we will utilize our new fermentin' toolkit in working with seasonal ingredients, to produce a distinct and quirky product that you can watch ripen to a fine potency on your counter at home.

What to expect:

A fast paced discussion on the importance of fermentation in health empowerment and healing the gut.

A line up of interactive demonstrations that teach you creative ways to ferment, using both dry-salting and brining techniques! Learn variations on kimchi and fermented condiments. Plus a tutorial on ghee - much more than just a fat for cooking! We'll also look at a process for Japanese Nuka Pickles too!
We'll also be looking at fermented beverages kombucha and water kefir!


Plus, special guest Claire Staroccia, star baker at Silo, will be along with an introduction to sourdough baking!

Take a portion home with you!

A bloody good time!
What other people say:

Amazing workshop the other night. Thank you. Such an interesting, exciting and motivating introduction to intelligent eating. And all so deftly infused with astonishing innuendo. See you soon!

Will - Brighton.


Fermentation liberation: the most mind-blowing empowering stuff to help us self manage our own health, right under our nose! One of the most inspiring workshops I have been to in a long time. Amazing and abundant practical info on how to manage our own gut health and cultivate a healthy microbiome. Fascinating and funny. I particularly enjoyed drawing parallels between Queer philosophy and the behaviour of friendly bacteria! Recommended.

Cat - Brighton.


Not just fermentation....Darren is passionate about social justice and empowering individuals to look after themselves....Workshops and talks will be full of blinding radical statements of rebellion and uprising....Definitely worth it
