Event description

Description

Fermentation revivalist Sandor Katz has written two books and travelled all over the world studying and sharing knowledge of a multitude of fermentation traditions but until recently he had never been to China.

Even though historical evidence points to China as the birthplace of many things fermented, such as soy sauce and rice wine, there is very little literature about China's diverse fermented food traditions that has been translated into the English language. China has seemed somewhat difficult for Sandor to access, both in terms of language and geography. This changed when he met Mara and Mattia.

Mara King, a chef and fermentation professional at Ozuke, was born and raised in Hong Kong. Film maker Mattia Sacco Botto, is an Italian native with ties to the Slow Food movement, strong Mandarin language skills, and experience producing food TV shows for CCTV. Armed with Mara's home grown knowledge of Chinese food traditions and a working knowledge of the Chinese language, they joined forces and set off together with Sandor on an adventure to eat lots of amazing things, cook with locals, and learn as much as they could about the fermentation traditions of Southwestern China. A Journey Through the People's Republic of Fermentation is a series of short films documents that journey.

Mara King will introduce the series and comment on the films. Midway through the series, there will be an intermission with a sampling of the following dishes from the films made by Ozuke and Fresh Thymes Eatery: Mrs. Dings PÀO CÀI or pickled vegetables, Mapo Tofu (vegetarian but not gluten-free), and fermented rice pudding with apples. After the films are complete, there will be a chance to celebrate fermented food with a drink and discuss the films with Mara at License No. 1 in Boulder, which is located in the Hotel Boulderado.
