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, first developed his passion for fermentation while at Craft London, where the chefs make absolutely everything from scratch. He then became sous chef at award-winning local restaurant, The Little Fish Market in Hove, and now grows unusual vegetables at Namayasai Farm in Sussex. He combines his fermentation knowhow with his love of foraging and homegrown produce to create ferments that are healthy, sustainable and deliciously different. The menu for this class will include:

  • Hot sauce
  • Fermented chilli paste
  • Pineapple tepache (soft drink)
  • Apple, beetroot and horseradish ferment

We will provide a full list of ingredients needed upon booking but the items needed are all simple and readily available – 1kg of mixed chilli/ sweet peppers, a whole pineapple, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, salt, lime and some beetroots, apples and horseradish (fresh or jarred).

The session is designed for participants to make their ferments alongside George but you can also choose to watch along and make yours at a later date if preferred.
