    As a matter of fact I was at Tara's class. It was my first class. I loved it!

    Nona, this is an old post and we actually just did a kimchi making class with Tara of Fermentation on Wheels.

    I'm pleased and happy to pay. I'd love to take this class. I'll be disappointed if the date selected is one that I can't make. (Hint: Don't make it Friday night!)

    I'm willing to pay to learn how to make kimchi. I have a book on it, but nothing beats a class and the ability to ask questions. I'm willing to travel for it too. Hopefully there's parking in the area. BTW, Robin, I'm in Queens too. So Queens is good for me. But I'll go anywhere as long as I can park.

    I would be willing to chip in. I can also volunteer my kitchen, would hold about 10 people. But it isn't on a subway line, need to take a bus from the train, so not so convenient in Queens.

    I would be willing to kick in for this. Kimchi is something I have really wanted to learn how to do properly. Need to break out of the kraut rut.

    Hate to say, I probably wouldn't make it.

    I would be interested, however, weeknights in Brooklyn are a no-go for this Bronx Chick. : (

    Hey all,

    If we want to have a big hands-on kimchi making class, I'm totally willing to do it at my commercial kitchen space in Brooklyn but will have to charge to cover the rental cost and materials. Let me know if you are willing to pay for this kind of class and we could schedule it for early July on a weeknight.

      I would love to do that, and would certainly be willing to pay, but will be in Australia the first two weeks of July! Dang...

      Yes I'm willing

    Hi folks,
    The founder of Mother-In-Law Kimchi is doing a class at Brooklyn Kitchen. You learn to make kimchi and get a copy of her new book for $30.

      Hi Angela, Thanks for the last meet up. I'm working on the water kefir and kombucha. Being a new father of Kombucha, I might be a little over protective, but the scoby sank to the bottom. I read up in the Art of Fermentation and it says it should float after 2 days. Do you think I'm a bad daddy and killed the poor thing? Or am I just another kombucha helicopter parent? Thanks

    Hi Fermenters,
    does anyone know where to buy affordable Kelp seaweed for topping when making kimchi? Or any kind of seaweed that comes in large pieces... It's a little expensive in the health food store.

    January 20, 2013

    • Mona

      Hope it works out. I know I've gotten kombu there in the past. I liked being able to buy just one piece for my needs and not spend a lot of money.

      @Margeret, thank so much for this info. THis really seem to be a good place for all bulk items. I like their no-frills approach. Looking forward to going there.

    I'm working on fermented mustard. I decided to use sauerkraut juice as a starter instead of whey.
    I read this:
    "Take a look at the list of bacteria involved in the fermentation of vegetables:

    Lactobacillus brevis
    Lb. plantarum
    Leuconostoc mesenteroides
    Pediococcus acidilactici
    Ped. pentosaceus

    Now take a look at the bacteria found in regular Nancy’s yogurt:

    Lactobacillus acidophilus
    Lb. casei
    Lb. rhamnosus
    Lb. bulgaricus
    Streptococcus thermophilus
    Bifidobacterium bifidum

    What species of bacteria do those lists have in common? Not one!"
    In "Nourishing Traditions, " Sally Fallon often recommends using whey from dairy products for fermenting many things. So there must be some wisdom to it.
    Has anyone thought of getting a lab analysis done of a homemade krauts, so we can learn more about this?

      Margaret, if you ever want to try it with kraut juice there is a local organic farm at the Union Square market that sells fermented veggies and they also sell sauerkraut juice in 16oz jars

      January 13, 2013

    • Margaret

      Thanks for the tip. I've tried their sauerkraut before. I'll have to ask them how they do their fermenting. Before I started making sauerkraut, I tasted everything they sell, to get an idea of what to look out for.

    This could be done at TRS, in Manhattan - it is a rent-a-space, suitable primarily for seminars, but, if properly organized, bringing in table covers, and a suitable amount of bottled water, as well as planning to carry out dirtied receptacles (I don't know that they have facilities for dishwashing). They are at 40 Exchange Place, also known as 27 William St(SE corner of Exchange and William)
    3rd Floor. If you think you want to organize in this way you can contact:[masked]

    In my experience, they are ordinarily very willing to cooperate with renters needs. Going this way would necessitate limiting the attendance and charging a fee that would cover the room rental cost (a maximum hour time for the workshop would need to be decided in advance, as the fees are per hour/per room size)

    Would love to do this in a group, and wish my kitchen were large enough to offer up! Unfortunately, more than three people at a time would be pushing it.

    Robin and I went to hear Lauryn Chun speak at the Queens Public Library yesterday about her new book, The Kimchi Cookbook, and to taste her samples. Yum! I bought nappa cabbage afterwards to try out the recipe.

      Thanks for sharing the website and recipe. Maybe this'll be my next experiment.

      January 8, 2013

      I just bought her book and am looking forward to trying some of the recipes!
