Fabulously Fermented: Bath Culture House workshops at Combe Grove this summer
If you don’t know your kimchi from your kombucha or your sauerkraut from your sourdough, Fabulously Fermented fairy Lucie Cousins is poised to get your tummy tingling with friendly flora at a series of fermenting workshops hosted by Combe Grove this summer.
Educated as a biologist right here in Bath, Lucie has a particular passion for gut health, plant-biology and fungi; join her on a tour around her world of beneficial bacterias as you try your hand at fermenting and take away some practical skills and recipes to continue at home. The workshops are perfect for anyone keen to master the art of fermentation, building your confidence and revolutionising your cooking repertoire as you go.
The Introduction to Fermentation workshop on Saturday 23 June teaches us all about the science behind fermentation, the many health benefits and how to include beneficial bacteria, yeasts, antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes into our diets as you discover and sample sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, water kefir, milk kefir and cultured nut cheese. On Saturday 28 July, Lucie will concentrate on the ancient art of making sauerkraut and Korean kimchi, and at the Herbal Alchemy workshop on Saturday 18 August Lucie will guide you through the process of making your own herbal teabags and how to forage for herbs in the wild before creating your own vinegars, infusions and herbal oils.
Each workshop starts at 2pm and finishes at 5pm, and cost just £60 per person, per session (£55 for Combe Grove Club Members.)
