Fermenting & Pickling for the Seasons Course

What you'll learn

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

Join author and whole-food 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 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 good for you. There’ll also be a demo on how to pickle with miso, plus a tasting of “ones we prepared earlier”.

All ingredients are provided, including a wide range of seasonal organic fruit, veg and herbs to choose from and quality glass preserving jars for you to take home.
