Event Details

Fermentation 101:

farmers market tour, lecture on the political

& biological ‘culture’ of kraut, and demonstation


Fermentation – our original & mostancient method of preservation – is once again chic! And pickles, kimchi & other potent fermented foods are showing up on plates at many of the trendiest restaurants. Fermented food, however, is surprisingly easy to make, and you can transform vegetables, grains and dairy into your own healthy creations. Join local fermentation expert Jeremy Ogusky at the Egleston Farmers Market in Jamaica Plain, where you will first receive a tour of the produce stands and an overview of the historical, philosophical, and social elements of fermenting. You will then have the opportunity to slice and dice fresh vegetables and make a jar of sauerkraut food to take home.


Come learn to ferment, and you'll go home with the confidence & information that will lead to you to continue exploring and creating more live fermented foods. This basic fermentation 101 class will cover everything you need to start fermenting: ingredients, philosophy, preparation, and a community of fermentation enthusiasts!


Basic Class outline:

  • Introductions
  • Tour of farmers market where we will purchase the vegetables direct from the farmers & chat with them about farming & fermentation
  • Lecture & discussion about fermentation from scientific, symbolic, historical & political perspectives; and the benefits of lacto-fermentation
  • Demonstration and food preparation
  • Culture Sharing: Bring any cultures you'd like to share and exchange (sourdough, water or milk kefir grains, kombucha mothers, etc)


Each participant will take home a fermenting jar of sauerkraut created in class and the knowledge and confidence to explore with fermentation projects at home!
