Fermenting & Pickling for the Seasons Course

View Classes

Learn how to culture pickles and ferment vegetables with our cooking 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!

Course testimonials:

  • said: 5 STARS

  • said: A clearer description of the night's program and where to find things would have helped. All in all it was very interesting and the teacher knows her subject.

  • said: Being able to share time, with like minded people, learning new skills & information... feeling included, even though this was my first Zoom meeting... the only improvement would have been a recipe sheet, with a couple more fermenting projects.

  • said: I liked the hands-on... but the camera set-up was a bit difficult - too small to see properly.

  • said: Learned a lot of tips and tricks, as well as making my own fermented vegetables. Online course, there were instances where the audio was a bit muffled, but information was repeated if this happened.
