I am super-excited to share that Dana and I have joined forces with the Cookbook Store to teach the fundamentals of fermenting!
The Cookbook Store is a cornerstone of food in Toronto. It’s a fabulous independent store which has focused on cooking literature for more than 20 years. In a world where book sales tend to be sold in larger-and-larger warehouse-type stores which lack on service, niche selection and knowledgeable staff, the Cookbook store has survived by offering the exact opposite experience. Entering the store gives me the feeling I had as a kid in a candy store.
Dana and I have been discussing hosting more clinics, instructional events and demonstrations this year. This will be our first demo of 2013 and we’re excited to be launching into 2013 alongside of such awesome partners!
The session will be about 90 minutes; here’s the details:
Fundamentals of Fermentation
with Well Preserved’s Joel MacCharles and Dana Harrison
When: Thursday February 21, 7:30 pm.
Where: The Cookbook Store & Kitchen Studio
Join Joel MacCharles and Dana Harrison (of wellpreserved.ca) for an evening of the fundamentals of fermentation. You’ll get an introduction to the basics including the different types of fermentation involved for fruits and vegetables, including the inclusion (or exclusion) of products like salt, whey, water or yeast. Well also be discussing the equipment required as well as helpful troubleshooting techniques.
And of course, there will be food as Joel and Dana will share their recipes and techniques for making fermented ginger, ginger beer, sauerkraut/kimchi and pickled carrots!
