Chicago South WAPF chapter: Fermentation Workshop

Have you been curious about the fermentation process?
Maybe checked out a couple of recipes or instructions and felt overwhelmed?

Or perhaps saw Sandor Katz at the Good Food Festival, got motivated and now not sure where to begin?

No worries!  This workshop is for YOU!

Our goal is to help you over the hump, rid you of your ferment fears and get you comfortable and ready to tackle your own bubbling goodies at home.


We will have a hands on workshop walking you through the steps for:


Water and Milk Kefir

Cultured veggies


Beet Kvass

and of course...sauerkraut!


Even if you are a seasoned fermenter, please join us.  We would like for you to share your successes, stories and short cuts with the group.

Samples will be available.

RSVP required, space is limited.

    Fred, my daughter will not drink any kombucha now except yours. Do you sell it? I'd love to buy some. It really is the best kombucha I've had. If so, please send me an email. Thanks.

    Awesome! So great. Very informative. So glad we got to make our own jars of fermented dilly carrots! I've been wanting to try fermented veggies for a while. Jennifer made it so easy and accessible. Fred had great kombucha info. My daughter (6) loved the carrots and kombucha!

      We are providing a fermentation workshop for both the north (4/13) and south (3/30) groups. The material will be basically the same, hosts/presenters will be different.
