West Elm Market (50 Washington St., Brooklyn)
$20 in advance
Join Just Food Trainer and owner of Crock and Jar, Michaela Hayes at West Elm Market and learn techniques to preserve your harvest all year long! Gain fermentation techniques to make irresistible foods you can eat in the colder months, or that you can give as tasty beautiful gifts.
Michaela offers a fun hands-on workshop for all of her students. They will experience fermentation first hand as Michaela teaches students how to ferment and then lets them practice! Using cabbage and salt, come learn the technique of lacto-fermentation to create nutritious, delicious sauerkraut. We’ll talk about why people ferment foods and how to use fermentation to eat raw, local vegetables all year round. This workshop will offer samples to taste and the opportunity to get hands-on.
