This event has already run

fermented beetroot in jarFermented 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.

In the final week of our Gut Health & Fermentation series, Caroline Whiteman will share her favourite fermentation techniques and pass on all the know-how you need to make your own fermented foods at home.

You will work with ingredients that have already begun the fermentation process as well as starting new ferments to take home, including fermented seasonal vegetables, sauerkraut and kimchi. Then you’ll create a light supper of kimchi pancakes to showcase the ways you can use your fermented products in everyday meals.

What previous participants said: “It was so simple, well explained, easy to do and follow. Good to work with and share ideas with others.” “Very friendly, good value. Totally enjoyable.” “I will definitely be making ferments, I had no idea how easy it was!”

Find out more about Caroline and the other cooks who teach in the Community Kitchen.
