New to Fermentation? The process of fermentation transforms food, adding flavor and making it more nutritious. Fermented foods include sauerkraut, cheese, beer, vinegar, kombucha, and many more. Please join fermentation expert and author Alex Lewin for a fermentation talk, demo, and tasting. Taste sauerkraut, fermented cole slaw, and beet kvass (fermented beet juice). Watch them being made, and learn how to make them at home. Bring any questions you have about ingredients, technique, flavor, equipment, or anything else! Participants will receive 10% off all fermentation supplies following the workshop, and Alex will also be on hand to sign his book.

Alex Lewin is the author of “Real Food Fermentation: Preserving Whole Fresh Food with Live Cultures in Your Home Kitchen”, the first fermentation book with step-by-step photographs specifically designed for home cooks. He regularly teaches workshops on fermentation and related topics.

A graduate of Harvard, the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Alex seeks to create a healthier and tastier world by spreading the word about fermentation and real food. He is at home in Boston and in the Bay Area.
