Come learn—and enjoy!—the complex techniques and flavors of fermented food and drink with renowned fermentation expert Sandor Katz. Over this two-day intensive, you’ll learn how to make fermented vegetables (kimchi anyone?), beverages (including a fruit-based wine), dairy products (yogurt, cheese, sour cream, kefir, etc.), grains, legumes, and starch. The two-day program includes lectures, demonstrations, and a hands-on element.

Copies of Sandor’s books, The Art of Fermentation and Wild Fermentation, will be available for sale in the Shelburne Farms Welcome Center.

“For me, fermentation is a health regimen, a gourmet art, a multicultural adventure, a form of activism and a spiritual path, all rolled into one.” - Sandor Katz
