Class Type: 

You’ve heard fermenting is good for you and it seems everyone is fermenting something these days. This class includes hands-on demonstrations and taste-testing the culinary possibilities of fermented vegetables. Bring your questions, your projects gone wrong*, your curiosity and an appetite to taste the wonderful flavors brought to you by fermentation. We will focus on artistry and creating a flavor arsenal of fermented goodies for your refrigerator. This safe and healthful technique will add to your culinary skills. We will use seasonally available vegetables and you will go home with a jar of your own kraut to watch bubble on the counter. *As a bonus we invite you to bring a ferment you’d like to troubleshoot.

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.
