About the Event
Cambridge Food & Climate Festival runs from 15th-22nd October and is set to be a delicious feast of sustainable food events and activities across the city. We are rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in to some fermentation, an excellent way to preserve vegetables at times of abundance while also introducing gut friendly bacteria to your diet.
Learn some tips to kickstart your journey to making fermented foods at home. We will share what we know, starting with a tasting of the range of pickles and krauts that we make for sale in the shop and continuing with preparation of a jar of veg for you to ferment at home. We will answer questions and trouble shoot as we go along, hopefully encouraging you to break down any barriers that you might have built up against employing this efficient and practical method of preserving food at home.
There is a voluntary donation for this event which will go to Cambridge Sustainable Food's Cost of Living Appeal to provide meals to anybody struggling to buy food at this time. There is also a free ticket available in for this workshop to be accessible for everybody.
