Learn how to culture pickles and ferment vegetables with our cooking short courses in Sydney!

Join author and wholefood educator, Marcea Klein, for a class full of gutsy goodness, as you learn all about fermenting and pickling the pick of the season’s organic fruit and veg.

You’ll come away with a whole lot of knowledge on how to prepare your own wild ferments (that’s when you use the liquid that you extract from the produce, no starter required), wild brine ferments and miso pickles. You’ll discover how you can add them into your daily diet, and why they’re so good for you. There’ll also be a demo on how to pickle with miso, plus a tasting of “ones we prepared earlier”.

Plus, you’ll take two wild ferments to be cared for at home later… two-jars-full!

  • some history and background on wild fermentation and naturally cultured pickled vegetables
