Two exciting workshops have just been added to Ferment! Ferment!
International Breads: How to Make Idlis and Dosas with Cheryl Paswater of Contraband Ferments
Idlis are a traditional breakfast in South Indian households. Idli is savory cloud-like cake that is popular throughout India and neighboring countries like Sri Lanka. These cakes are made by creating a batter consisting of lentils and rice that is then fermented and steamed. In this workshop we will be discussing the health components, making, and eating these yummy breads. Bring your favorite fermented chutney or sambar to share.
Short meads are like the younger sassier siblings of the traditional fermented honey wine. They’re lower in alcohol (usually between 3% and 6%), refreshing, and can be made in less than two weeks’ time! And they’re a delicious way to turn local honey, seasonal produce, and tasty teas into a quaffable low-ABV beverage. Mary will take you through the simple process, discuss ingredients and share samples of the finished product.
