In 2018 we spoke of Gut Health. In 2019, we are actioning our knowledge on gut health. The key to health and vitality for ourselves and that of our family lies in the traditional ways of past generations. Their understanding of how we co-habit with our environment is what assists in supporting a healthy existence. How we harness the vitality of our foods through preserving them in traditional ways are just some of the practices we can bring into our daily food planning.

The weekend encourages you to understand the follow-through of the fermentation practices. By preparing your own ferments and being interactive through the processes, you will experience greater confidence in your ability to bring these traditional ways into your kitchen.

Traditional Fermentation conjures up images of bubbling cauldrons and strange smells emanating beneath apparent sealed lids. Why would anyone be inclined to partake in a tiny morsel, let alone a glass and a half? Traditional cultures would share their enthusiasm of these delicacies in all the reasons why one would with certainty include them in their daily food rituals. Let’s blow the lid off all these myths and get chopping, brewing and seasoning in an advanced course in learning the art of fermentation.

Deborah’s passion is to encourage you to make your own living cultured foods in your home, bringing the diversity and benefits into your kitchen and onto your plate. She does this by providing you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make your own healthy fermented foods and drinks! This workshop is informative, practical, and fun. Discover how simple the ancient art and science of fermentation actually is and how you can integrate fermented foods into your daily life.
