FERMENT! FERMENT!

Gather to celebrate a decade’s worth of community building around homemade fermented food and drink!

BRING a homemade ferment to share or culture to swap
ENJOY delicious, funky, traditional, and experimental ferments
CONNECT with other DIY fermenters

Fermentation is everywhere and it deserves our love and attention. The goal of Ferment! Ferment! is to encourage home fermentation, and to come together to enjoy and share our experiences making these foods. In a world of fetishization of the food professional, let’s celebrate the amateur. Think of this as a party, potluck, and informal tasting.

Do you make something special with your homemade ferments? Maybe you concoct a unique mustard from your own vinegar, or cook up a satisfying soup from your own miso, or perhaps incorporate home-aged cheese into a delicious dish. How about a funky kraut or fiery kimchi! If so, this is your opportunity to share these types of things.

The guidelines are simple: bring a homemade fermented food or drink or something made with a homemade ferment to share. If you’re unsure if it’s fermented, just drop Zack a line and ask. Alternatively (or additionally) bring a culture/starter to swap at the culture exchange table. If you’re a professional fermenter, bring something that you’re not currently selling.

There will also be a few workshops going on throughout the afternoon. We have some open spots, so if you have skills and you’d like to share, let Zack know; there are modest stipends available for workshop facilitators.

RSVPs to Zack at z.schulman at gmail requested.
