Food Fermentation for Health & Social Change
Sun, 26 Feb 2017, 19:00 – Sun, 23 Apr 2017, 23:00 GMT
Come along to our workshop: Food Fermentation for Health & Social Change on February 26th @ 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! An especially awesome time to come along to think about creative ways to pack some punch and sparkle into your nutrition to cast off any festive fatigue.
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 ghee - much more than just a fat for cooking! We'll also look at a process for Japanese Nuka Pickles too!
Special guests Old Tree Coop exploring fermented beverages such as kefir, kombucha & beet kvass.
Special guests Infinity Food Kitchen exploring fermented nut cheese!
Special guest Claire Staroccia - Silo baker, who will be talking to us about sourdough baking!

Take a portion home with you!
A bloody good time!
