What we're about

Do you see fermentation as an art form, science and little bit of magic? Does transformation of simple foods to super foods awe inspiring for you? Does your pantry look like a science lab? Are you passionate about the super Ks.. Kefir, Kombucha, Kvass, Kimchi? Do you enjoy fermenting your own sodas, beer, make your own wine? Does the crackling sound of your ginger bug excites you? Is your fridge always stocked with pickles, sauerkrauts, yogurt, sour cream and cheeses? Is your gut flora thriving and in love with how well you take care of it? Well, if you said yes to any of that, we would like you to be part of this fun group! In this group, we share recipes, learnings, Scooby’s, grains, bugs and lots of laughs! This is not a group to promote business or sell you anything! We meet as friends, have a good time and grow in our knowledge of the art of fermentation! Look forward to seeing you soon.. happy fermenting!

Fun Cabbage Ferments - Kimchi and Sauerkraut

Needs a location

Kimchi is made by fermentation of napa cabbage, veggies and seasonings including onion, ginger, garlic and hot chilli pepper! This holds a strong significance in Korean culture. This food is rich in Vitamins, including vitamin C and D.. plus, minerals. Ofcourse it is loaded with probiotics and supports your digestive system. Sauerkraut is a close cousin of kimchi, dill pickles and other forms of fermented vegetables. It is simple to make, but there are so many variations! It has the same benefits as Kimchi and is equally delicious.

Kimchi and Sauerkraut are evidence that the magic of fermentation can convert simple ingredients into delicious, super foods! This will be a hands on meetup. We will make sauerkraut and kimchi. You are welcome to make both or just one! The list of ingredients will be provided to folks who RSVP, closer to the event.

This is a happy hour meetup, so please feel free to bring in your favorite German or Korean brew :).. Also, bring along your friends and/or make some new like minded friends at the meetup!

Cheers,
Gagan

Indian Pickles (Achaars)!

Needs a location

Indian pickles come in so many different varieties, flavours and textures. Indian pickles are generally pickled with oil, vinegar, lemon juice or water. Many types of foods are pickled.. fruits, vegetables, herbs and even meats. These pickles not only help preserve food, but also have many health benefits. Ofcourse, they add many dimensions of flavors and no Indian meal is complete without some spicy pickle!

Come to this meetup to learn the art of Indian pickle making, sample some yummy pickles, and as always, make some new friends!

We will make 1-2 pickles together. I will publish the list of ingredients closer to the meetup

Cheers,
Gagan
