Fermentation Cooking Class with a side of pickling

April 30, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Slow Food Whidbey Island’s Events Committee co-chairs, Leslie Stevens and Arjai Allred, will talk about fermentation and show you how to prepare different types of vegetables using this process as well as a side on pickling.  After the class, there will be an opportunity to taste several different commercially prepared fermented foods.

For thousands of years people have used fermentation to make bread, wine, beer, cheese, and other foods.  Not only does fermentation enhance food preservation, but eating fermented foods can boost the number of beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, in your gut. Probiotics are associated with a variety of health benefits, including improved digestion, better immunity, and even  increased weight loss.
The cost will be $15.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members.  Please contact Kathy Floyd at kathy46@whidbey.com if you would like to sign up.  The price includes a chance at winning a fermentation “basket” full of spices and fermented items.
