Event Details

Jamaica Plain's fabulous Hyde Square eatery, Aurum Restaurant, and Boston Ferments are teaming up for a night of fermentation! The workshop will include a fermented dinner & paired fermented drinks, a short lecture on the history & culture of fermentation, and a hands-on fermentation demo. 

The evening kicks off with a fermentation-inspired vegetarian kimchi Lebanese pie (which can be vegan - please just let us know) plus a selection of sides like house-made beet chips. We are pairing this meal with unique fermented cocktails (served in handcrafted cups - see below - which you will take home!) by workshop leader Jeremy Ogusky.

Next, we will have a short lecture & discussion on the biological, political, and symbolic 'culture' of fermented foods around the world with Jeremy Ogusky. Jeremy is a local fermenting enthusiast, JP studio potter, and founder of Boston Ferments. We will then learn to make one of the simplest lacto-fermented treats - sauerkraut! We will break into groups, chop veggies and everyone will go home with a jar full of fermenting cabbage.

All participants will finish the workshop with a healthy belly full of fermented foods as well as the knowledge & confidence to begin fermenting in their kitchen, and a jar full of fermenting kraut. This starter class will cover everything you need to start fermenting on your own: philosopy, preparation and problem-solving. Please join us!

If you want to learn to ferment AND go home with a handcrafted fermentation crock to create your own sauerkraut, kimchi & pickles in, this is your chance! Our instructor, Jeremy, is a studio potter and creator of the crocks and he will bring a selection of colors to the workshop that you can choose from. Then you can prepare your own sauerkraut in the workshop in your own handmade crock!
