Sandor Katz: The Art of Fermentation

The Art of Fermentation workshop is a rare opportunity to work with one of the world’s leading experts in fermentation, Sandor Katz, who is visiting the UK from his home in Tennessee, USA.

During this one day workshop you’ll explore the rich history of the techniques of fermentation and get hands-on experience in making a range of ferments, leaving at the end of the day with some bubbling crocks to take home with you.
