george upshallFermented foods are big news now, and for good reason. Enjoyed for centuries by people from many cultures, not only do fermented foods pack a punch taste-wise but those who eat them report many health benefits. Fermenting is also a great way of preserving gluts of home-grown produce. This class takes fermentation that one step further.

George Upshall, sous chef at award-winning restaurant, The Little Fish Market in Hove, first developed his passion for fermentation while at Craft London, where the chefs make absolutely everything from scratch. He combines his fermentation knowhow with his love of foraging and this class will see you producing a seasonal series of ferments that are healthy, sustainable and deliciously different:

  • Fermented potato (to create potato flatbreads which you will enjoy during the session)
  • A wild vinegar (eg crab apple, nettle or sea buckthorn depending on availability)
  • Sambal-style fermented chilli paste
  • Lime pickle with foraged spices

You will taste ingredients that have already begun the fermentation process as well as starting new ferments to take home. You’ll go home with some new-found skills and plenty of inspiration to get truly creative on the fermentation front.
