Calling all fermenters! Save the date for our 2014 pickle party!

August 24, 2014

Each year, we gather during the harvest season to celebrate this original form of preservation. Join us in August to sample an array of fermented foods and discover how to make your own kimchi, kefir, and other fermented delicacies at home. Learn about the nutritional importance of having fermented foods in our diet, as well as their history and integral role in every culture and civilization. Taste samples of fermented foods from artisanal producers, and listen to the experts teach you the tips! As a fast-growing culinary craze, fermentation is being discussed around every corner. Sustainably speaking, there’s no wonder why this interest is becoming more popular among mainstream culinarians. The Sonoma County Chefs, backyard farmers and DIY-ers have caught on: fermentation is THE traditional way to preserve foods.
