Spend time in the breath-taking grounds of Sharpham Estate with Jon Howell, learning how to improve your immune system and gut health with the power of probiotic-rich fermented foods.
Ferments are highly nutritious and are an excellent way of storing food, with a compelling and complex flavour. On this workshop you will learn how to create nourishing ferments at home using a range of vegetables, explore how the fermentation process works to benefit your overall health and sample a variety of tasty fermented goods.
This event costs £55 per person for the day and is suitable for adults aged 16 and over.
Each day runs from 10am to 4pm
The day starts with an introduction to the art of fermentation, how it works and why our bodies thrive from fermented foods.
We will learn by making a number of ferments together, using ingredients provided, using techniques as old as culture itself, but adding into the mix your own unique combinations of flavours.
We will each lunch together accompanied by a variety of fermented foods for you to sample - please bring along a packed lunch.
At the end of the day we will close with final questions and a wild cup of something delicious.
