Fermentation has hit the headlines recently due to the incredible health benefits of increasing the diversity of the body's friendly bacteria. But did you know that only handmade, artisan fermented products maintain their high levels of friendly gut bacteria? This four hour workshop will give you the skills and confidence to start fermenting in your own kitchen and give you the chance to sample lots of fermented produce. This beginners guide will include an overview of how to ferment: - Water Kefir - Milk Kefir - Kombucha - Sauerkraut - Kimchi I will teach you about the starter culture, the SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). And how it is slightly different for each fermented drink as is the fermentation process. You will learn about the 2 step ferment process of Water kefir and how it creates beneficial probiotics. I will also teach you about flavours and carbonation. Everyone will have the opportunity to make their own water kefir and you will take away your own fermenting bottle. You will also make your own sauerkraut. There will be lots of tasters throughout the session.
About your mentor
Roisin Meredith
When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
I have had a career as a high school Chemistry teacher; but am now pursuing the 'scientific art' of fermentation, having developed by own brand of live, vegan, water kefir which I make in small batches from my kitchen in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. This is available in markets and festivals across Sussex. I am passionate about probiotics and gut health and regularly give educational talks and workshops on fermentation and the benefits of having a healthy microbiome.
