Food Fermentation for Health & Social Change
Mon 21 November 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Come along to our workshop: Food Fermentation for Health & Social Change on November 21st @ 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 summer.
In the practical segment of the workshop, we will utilize our new fermentin' toolkit in working with both seasonal and 'intercepted' 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 50min 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! Learn variations on kimchi, nut cheese and fermented condiments. Plus a tutorial on how to make ghee - much more than a fat for cooking. We'll look at a process for Japanese Nuka Pickles too!
Special guests The Old Tree Coop, exploring fermented drinks kefir, kombucha and beet kvass.
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!
