Event Details

Fermentation 101 at The Food Project                  

Fermentation – our original & most ancient 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 on the Food Project's farm, where we will have a short lecture on the historical & social 'culture' of fermentation around the world. We will all then have the opportunity to slice and dice fresh vegetables (grown at the Food Project, of course) and make a jar of sauerkraut food to take home. Children are welcome to join in the on the first lecture-style half of the workshop or play in the nearby children's garden. Children can attend the workshop for free.


You will 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!

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!
