Event Details

Experienced fermenter and Sofra Bakery chef de cuisine Geoff Lukas has teamed up with Boston Ferments and studio potter and fermention enthusiast Jeremy Ogusky to curate a fermentation-themed experimental dining event.


The menu aims to demonstrate the variety and ubiquity of fermentation.  Each course will present traditional techniques from different cultures to offer flavors both familiar and novel.  We hope the range and complexity of flavor will show the culinary motivation that complements the nutritional and agricultural aspects of fermentation.

Fermentation is one of the oldest forms of food preservation, finding a place across all cultures and geographies. Classically, it allowed civilizations in colder climates to make the most of a short growing season and enabled those in hotter climates to withstand the rigors of the summer. Today, the practice of fermentation is being utilized as a way to promote flavor, complexity and nutrition in our food. From the range of Japanese vegetable ferments, to the dairy ferments of desert nomads and the domesticated mold used by Amazonian tribes, fermented foods appear in fascinating ways and often with surprising cross-cultural parallels. 


  • Beet kvass apertif
  • Keshk-glazed sweet peppers and fennel
  • Lacto carrots with crispy pinenuts and green chickpeas
  • Mackerel escabeche with celery kimchi
  • Chocolate, wood-grilled cocoa nibs, caramelized whey

The courses will be paired with fermented drinks including hard cider from Bantam Cider, beet kvass, honey mead & beer. 

This dinner is a fundraiser for the Boston Ferments September 27 free Fermentation Festival, so a good proportion of the ticket price will help us to finance the festival.


The handcrafted food will also be served off of handcrafted ceramics made by Jeremy Ogusky and each participant will take home a handcrafted ceramic cup created specifically for this event...
