Learn to ferment something festive and fun with our cooking courses in Sydney.

Join author and wholefood educator, Marcea Klein, for an evening of gutsy goodness, as you learn all about fermenting and pickling the pick of the festive season’s organic produce – including party season salsa, fruit sodas and summery pickled fruits.

You’ll come away with a whole lot of knowledge on how to prepare your own wild ferments. You’ll discover how you can add them to your festive table and why they’re so good for you – plus a tasting of “ones we prepared earlier”. You’ll take ferments and pickles to be cared for at home later… two-jars-full!

Course testimonials:

  • said:The teacher was well organised and knew a lot about the topic but was easily sidetracked by questions from the group that slowed things down a lot. I felt that the experience dragged a bit and could have been more informative and fun had the teacher shared more insight into nutrition etc. It was evident that her expertise was rich but she didn't readily share much of it. i feel she could have provided more to do as well. The class finished early and the two recipes we made didn't take much time.
