About this event:
“By eating a variety of live fermented foods, you promote diversity among microbial cultures in your body….By fermenting foods and drinks with wild microorganisms present in your home environment, you become more interconnected with the life forces of the world around you.” – Sandor Katz
Fermentation is the process of converting carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms. It is a form of food preservation as well as a way to promote gut health.
In this workshop, you’ll learn different kinds of fermentation and pickling; from vinegar pickles to quick pickles. There will be an assortment of Local Roots vegetables and spices to choose from to customize your own jar of fermented goodies to bring home!
To kick off the night, Local Roots founder Wen-Jay will discuss the the guidelines we ensure each of our farmers must meet so you’re receiving the highest quality, nutrient dense produce.
Tickets are $45 and includes 1 drink from the bar.
