2. "Fermentation Workshop with Chef John Schaal" 2:30p - 3:30p
Fermentation is one of the oldest food preparation techniques known to humans- and it's easy, safe, and fun! Join Chef John Schaal of Schaal Foods in a workshop exploring the wonders of our tiny yeast and bacterial friends, and the absolutely delicious results of teaming up with them. In the class we will sample a variety of foods that make use of fermentation while we make sauerkraut together. Everyone will take home their own quart of Sauerkraut and potentially a few other goodies as well.
Fermenting foods is easily one of the most empowering experiences of my life, learning the art of fermentation has transformed how I relate to food, time, flavor, culture and creation. Chef John Schaal
