Lacto-fermentation is an ancient method of food preservation that also enhances the bioavailability of nutrients in food. People are becoming increasingly aware that our gut health is directly linked to our overall health. As much as 70-80% of our immune system resides in our gut. Including fermented foods in the diet helps to build gut health, improve digestion, prevent disease and reduce sugar cravings. These are just a few of the amazing benefits.

It is possible to ferment almost any edible plant, fruit or vegetable in almost any combination. After completing this course, you will go home with the knowledge and confidence to start cultivating your own ‘cultured’ kitchen. We will cover the basics, including sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir and more. This will be a ‘hands on’ learning approach and each participant will get to make their own sauerkraut to bring home, as well as their own kombucha starter.

Bring wellies, warm clothes and a head of cabbage to make the sauerkraut

Materials Cost €5
