Event description

Description

Come learn what fermentation is, its history, and how to do it safely, from USDA Microbiologist Fred Breidt, who specializes in the safety of fermented and acidic foods.

Although most of us eat some form of fermented food every day, the idea of fermenting our own food conjures up images of strange, iffy, and perhaps dangerous dishes. Surely it would be best to leave it to the experts. Not so, say food scientists, microbiologists, and fermentation advocates—especially in the case of fermented raw vegetables. They point out that many vegetables can be safely fermented at home, if done properly.

This presentation is part of the Triangle Ferment Fest, taking place on October 13th, from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission to the festival is free (https://triangle-ferment-fest-2019.eventbrite.com). Sample fermented foods and drink from local vendors, win product giveaways, and take home a culture! trianglefermentfest.com
