You can learn how to crack the code of making fermented foods at home and bring a whole new dimension of flavor into your cooking and eating with this empowering hands-on class, led by our long-time fermentation instructor, Nishanga!

Class begins with a short lecture on the history, science, and health benefits of fermentation, includes a demo and tasting of fermented foods and their use in recipes.
