The Art of Fermentation and Probiotic Drinks

During this workshop you will have a chance to learn about fermentation, the ancient method of food preservation. We will concentrate on the process of lacto-fermentation, which might first bring to mind fermented milk products like yoghurt and kefir. But as we are going to find out, it’s only a small part of the whole story.

As traditions in many cultures show, almost every vegetable as well as fruit can be lacto-fermented and the process itself is 100% vegan. It’s an easy and non-expensive way to store edible plants for very long periods. It can help you diversify the tastes in your diet and most importantly, eating fermented food is extremely healthy. It strenghtens your immune system and can prevent a lot of diseases.

We will make some kimchi (spicy Korean fermented cabbage) together, I will show you how to make kombucha with a starter of symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. We will also have a close look on kefir culture and how we can use it.

We will meet at 2 p.m. at Quinta Kania in Vila do Mato. The workshop will take around three hours. Your own kimchi and a kefir culture you can take with you and enjoy at home.
