Fermentation Fans ahoy! Learn the ancient technique of lacto-fermentation to create healthy, gut-friendly ferments safely at home. This workshop is great for beginners, as we will focus on the basics of lacto-fermentation. You'll get a bit of the nutritional/scientific info behind how the fermentation process works, use local cabbage to make Sauerkraut and Kimchi, and end with taking these home to complete their process.

We run hands-on canning and cooking workshops out of our Community Kitchen, at the West End Food Co-op. Each workshop teaches various techniques led by our Cannery Coordinator or Kitchen Coordinator which are easily replicable at home. Some of our past workshops have included various jams and pickles, lacto-fermentation, San Francisco-style sourdough bread, sausage-making, Tibetan momos, kimchi, and many, many more!
We also welcome Workshop Facilitators from all food-related backgrounds to inquire about hosting a workshop in our Community Kitchen. Contact Corry@westendfood.coop for more details.
