In partnership with Slow Food Bluegrass, Fermentation on Wheels will hold a vegetable fermentation workshop, teaching the simple tradition of preserving foods through bacterial collaboration using local, seasonal ingredients. Fermentation teachers Austin Durant and Tara Whitsitt will share the benefits of fermentation and how you can creatively & fearlessly ferment in your own kitchen. This workshop targets novice through intermediate students, offering a thorough overview of the art of lacto-fermented vegetables.
Tara Whitsitt will also give a brief introduction on starter cultures (sourdough, kombucha, dairy kefir, etc.) and tour of the bus. Attendees may bring starter cultures of their own for exchange & discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop.
If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 (per starter culture). There is a suggested $10 donation for this workshop, but donating less or more is completely up to you. All donations support the continuation of Fermentation on Wheels Midwest tour.
NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
