SaurkrautSauerkraut, kimchi, sourdough bread, and kombucha!

Fermented foods can be mysterious and intimidating. We will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make your own healthy fermented foods and drinks! This workshop is informative, practical, and fun. Discover how simple the ancient art and science of fermentation actually is and how you can integrate fermented foods into your daily life.

Workshops are from 1 pm – 4 pm in the east end of Ottawa (Overbrook), accessible through public transportation. You will receive the address once your register.

Cost: $65.  Participants will leave with a small jar of sauerkraut to ferment at home, a kombucha SCOBY, sourdough starter, recipes, and instructions. We also offer online support after the workshop. A variety of fermented food samples will be available to taste at the workshop!


Stay tuned for more workshop dates in 2017!

“I learned so much at your workshop. It was worth every penny. I was a total beginner. You explain things clearly, meticulously, and with a sense of humour! You’ve opened up an entire world to me and since taking your workshop I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of fermentation creations.” Susan


“I wanted to thank you again for the great workshop. I think the most important part I have learned is that sourdough bread doesn’t need to be complicated. Online I always read about the perfect temperature, bread form, raising time etc. You showed me that I can just use what ever is convenient and that I don’t have to stop the time. I am much more relaxed and flexible in the kitchen now.

Your fermentation workshop was very inspiring and I have lot’s of ideas now. I loved that you explained the fermentation process in theory. That made the practical part much easier to understand. The fermented food and fresh homemade sourdough bread you provided during the workshop was delicious. I would recommend everyone to participate in your workshop. It is a great way to eat healthy and save food which is at risk to go bad. Thanks again!” – Carolin, Foodsharing Ottawa


“I had tried making ferments at home, but something always seemed to go wrong. You really helped me pinpoint my mistakes. You clearly are extremely experienced and knowledgeable about all aspects of fermented foods. Thank you my fermentation guru!” Pat
