Gather for a celebration of homemade fermented food & drink!
Fermentation is everywhere and it deserves our love and attention. The goal of Ferment! Ferment! is to encourage home fermentation, and to come together to enjoy and share our experiences making these foods. In a world of fetishization of the food professional, let’s celebrate the amateur fermenter. Think of this as not only a party, but also an informal tasting.
Do you make something special with your homemade ferments? Maybe you concoct a unique mustard from your own vinegar, or cook up a satisfying soup from your own miso, or perhaps you incorporate home-aged cheese into a delicious dish. How about a funky kraut or fiery kimchi! If so, this is your opportunity to share these types of things.
The guidelines are simple: bring a homemade fermented food or drink or something made with a homemade ferment to share. If you’re unsure if it’s fermented, just drop me a line and ask. Alternatively (or additionally) bring a culture/starter to swap at the culture exchange table.
There will also be a few workshops going on throughout the afternoon and evening. We have a bunch of open spots, so if you’ve got skills and you’d like to share, let me know; there are modest stipends available for workshop facilitators.
RSVPs to Zack at z[dot]schulman[at]gmail[dot]com requested.
