Join Sandor Katz to learn about the transformative power of home fermentation from concepts to cooking.

About this event

What’s on the menu:

  • Turmeric, Garlic & Turnip-Paste Pickles
  • Chinese Pao-Cai

Are you a fermentation fanatic—or maybe interested in getting started with home fermentation, but not sure how or where to start? Join guest chef Sandor Katz, a fermentation revivalist, teacher and the author of the wildly popular books “Wild Fermentation,” “The Art of Fermentation,” and the new “Sandor Katz’s Fermentation Journeys,” for a class all about the transformative power of home fermentation. We’ll start with a review of two key concepts in vegetable fermentation: dry-salting and brining. You’ll understand why sauerkraut gets treated to dry-salting while your carrots want to be brined (hint: it comes down to surface area). Then, we’ll jump into two more advanced methods. You’ll learn how to make pickling pastes—which are not only packed with flavor but also help to jump-start fermentation—and put that knowledge into practice as you prepare a batch of Turmeric, Garlic & Turnip-Paste Pickles. Then, you’ll learn how to safely and strategically use a perpetual spiced brine, which Sandor will use to prepare Chinese pao-cai pickles. Sandor will answer all your fermentation questions as we go, from essential safety tips to serving suggestions. Join us to get started with your fermentation journey or to take your skills up to the next level.
