September Workshops

Spring time brings new life and colour to our gardens and our plates.  And as the weather warms, we start to think more about salads, BBQs and eating outdoors.  And there is no better way to brighten up a salad than with a colourful crunchy kraut or fermented pickle.  And if you’d love to learn how to make your own, we can teach you all the basics.

Our ‘Introduction to Fermentation’ workshop will take you through the basics of safe and delicious wild fermentation.  We’ll make a kraut, we’ll sample some different flavours and we’ll also teach you how to make kombucha.  And of course – there’ll be some lovely batches of our kombucha for you to try.  you will receive recipes and a scoby to take home.

Our numbers are always small, so get in quick.

11.30am – Saturday 15th September

Our ‘Everything kefir’ workshop takes fermentation to the next level.  Tania from The Fermentier will teach you how to ferment with kefir grains, how to care for and love your grains.  And, she’ll give your taste buds a treat as you taste her flavoured water kefir, milk kefir, cultured butter and creme fraiche.

Individual workshops are $45 or come to both for $75

Festive ferments workshop – 11 Nov


 let’s celebrate summer

Party season is just around the corner and we’d love to help you celebrate with some festive fermented inspiration.  Want some ideas for Christmas entertaining – we can show you how to inject some funky flavours to your menu with fermented vegetables, pickles and fabulous fermented drinks.

We’ll show you how to make flavour bombs like our traditionally fermented beetroot and apple relish.  Amazing with cold meat, seafood or cheese and crackers.

Get inspired to zhoosh up your burgers, soft tacos, salad and more with naturally fermented pickles.  A great finger food when entertaining too.

Sip on icy cold, refreshing traditional ginger beer or try some yuletide flavoured kombucha (think plum pudding).  Less sugar than bought drinks and packed with probiotics and love.

Pack up the excess into cute jars for delicious homemade gifts and treats.

Let’s get this party started and keep our bellies happy at the same time!
