Lost Arts: Creating and Cooking with Fermented Foods
Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT)
Laguna Beach, CA
Fermented foods have recently gained the attention of both chefs and health practitioners. They are once again valued for their wonderful flavors and now also for their health benefits. Who would have guessed that this ancient preservation method, largely forgotten with the advent of supermarkets and refrigeration, had so much to offer? Since most of us did not grow up in households where we could observe the fermentation, the process can seem a bit daunting, but it couldn't be easier!
In this class you will:
- learn the basic process for making fermented fruits and vegetables.
- take home 3 jars (Pickled Seasonal Vegetables, Summer Fruit Vinegar and Sweet & Sour Onion Marmalade) to nurture in your own kitchen according to direction, then transfer to your refrigerator and enjoy. Price of this class includes jars for fermentation and air locks.
- help prepare and enjoy a light supper that uses the fermented foods you will make as ingredients.
