Event Details

From easing social anxiety, to helping with allergies, sleep issues, weight problems and overall immunity - fermented foods pack a punch. A bio-diverse microbiome means resilient and vital health. At these workshops we teach you how to make highly bioavailable and live foods to support better health and cognition.

At AlchemyFlow, we like our food served radical. In this workshop, we bring together current research and insights into food, health and healing to show how the simple act of fermenting in the home kitchen may not only benefit ourselves personally but reverberate into wider social, political and environmental realms. Expect an evening of 'blinding statements of rebellion' and 'gut-savvy politics', incorporated with a sound technical education in the fermentation arts and other gut healing methods and techniques.

 

 
What to expect on the night:

A platter of fermented foods to share featuring some of the recipes explored throughout the evening and samples of fermented drinks such as kefir and kombucha.

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 different techniques - demonstrated by a team of locally based fermentation artisans.
 

In this particular workshop you will learn to and have the chance to participate in making:

Kimchi - a complex and fiery Korean staple.
Skhug - a fermented version of a popular Yemeni 'hot sauce'.
Sauerkraut - a simple ferment of cabbage very popular in Germany.
Fermented Nut Cheese - turning the humble cashew into a tangy dairy substitute.
Kefir (Milk) - a fermented dairy product.
Kombucha / Water Kefir & Beetroot Kvass - fermented drinks.

We'll also take a look at bone stock - an introduction in how to make this powerful healing remedy for the gut, with a look at alternatives for those who don't eat meat.

A handbook featuring a range of different recipes!

Ongoing support through email and phone to troubleshoot any issues in your practice.
 
Take a portion home with you!

A bloody good time!


 

What other people say:

 

Darren’s sell-out fermentation talks and workshops generated exceptional feedback and enhanced the reputation of both Viridian Nutrition and our health store stockists. His political-savvy and gut-health expertise made him a hit with independent health store retailers and their audiences across the UK and Ireland.

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

Alice - Brighton.



I've been for many months wanting to attend to this fermentation workshop and now I have done it I feel so happy and grateful I went! Very friendly and chilled atmosphere, and very knowledgeable team.
Darren is a great orator that helped us understand why fermenting is so good and important for our gut and immune system. I highly recommend you to give it a go and get in the fermenting world, it's great!

Fantastic evening on fermentation on Sunday - thanks Darren and the team at Silo! I was really impressed with the wealth of knowledge and understanding of the symbiosis between our body and bacteria (not to mention taste-buds wowed by your kimchi recipe - I could have kept eating this). Highly recommend to anyone wanting to understand their own health better (starting with the gut) and give fermenting a go

Rebecca - Brighton,

Why fermentation?

From easing social anxiety, to helping with allergies, sleep issues, weight problems and overall immunity – fermented foods pack a punch. A bio-diverse microbiome means resilient and vital health. At these workshops we teach you how to make highly bioavailable and live foods to support better health and cognition.
 
Participants of our workshops leave with a critical perspective on mainstream ideas around food and health and develop a tool box of their own to revive traditions of creating living, vibrant food in their own kitchen; to nourish and effect change in themselves, their families and communities.
 

Why AlchemyFlow?

Cookery courses are fun and at AlchemyFlow we like our events served with some radicality too.

Participants of our workshops can expect an evening of “blinding statements of rebellion” and “gut-savvy politics” incorporated with a sound technical education in the fermentation arts and other gut healing methods and techniques.
 

What to expect at our workshops:

  • 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.

  • A bloody good time.
