Fun with Ferments: Kimchi, Kraut, & Curtido
Vanessa Barrington, author of DIY Delicious, will provide hands-on instruction in making spicy Korean kimchi, a sauerkraut with cabbage and root vegetables, and Salvadorean curtido.
Participants will take home their own starter kimchi and their choice of curtido or sauerkraut. Finished samples will be available for tasting and students will leave with recipes and ideas for ways to enjoy their fermented vegetables.
NOTE: Please bring a knife and cutting board with you to the workshop. No worries if you are unable to bring either of these -- just email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
Date & Time: Thursday, November 18, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Women's Building*, Audre Lorde Room, 3543 18th St, between Guerrero St and Valencia St. (a few blocks from BART and MUNI's J Church line).
*We know what you're thinking, and no, you don't have to be a woman to take a class at the Women's Building. In fact, we think there will be a lot of dudes at this workshop - it's just a great location and space (and totally welcoming for men).
**Sliding scale pricing available. Email email@example.com for details.
