June 17, 10am-12pm, 20 person capacity
Join us for a hands-on workshop exploring the art of Japanese and Korean fermentation! You will learn about the different types of fermentation techniques practiced in these cultures; including tsukemono, kimchi, miso, soy sauce, and more. We will briefly discuss varieties of vegetables that grow well in our climate, and use locally sourced ingredients to create small batches of fermented goodies to take home. Beginners and experimented fermenters of all ages welcome.
