Finding your Inner Fermentista

Tue, 08/19/2014 -
6:30pm to 9:00pm
Class Type: 

This is not your grandmother's sauerkraut. There are plenty of other vegetables available this time of year and here’s a whole new way to preserve what they have to offer! Taste and create a flavor arsenal of fermented goodies—concentrated herb pastes, relishes and vegetable combinations that don't necessarily include cabbage. Everyone will take home a creation to ferment and enjoy. Hands on class.

Instructor: Kirsten Shockey

Kirsten Shockey, co-author of best selling Fermented Vegetables and forthcoming Fiery Ferments, got her start in fermenting foods with her family's farmstand food company, where they created over forty varieties of cultured vegetables and krauts. When Kirsten and her husband, Christopher, realized their passion was for the process, they chose to focus on teaching the art of fermenting vegetables. They now teach classes at their farm and host small farm workshops. Kirsten maintains their blog at They live on a 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon.
