Morning: Wild about Fermentation  with Trish Dent

 Afternoon: The Art of Home Remedies with Anna Mackenzie


Morning with Trish:
The value of fermented foods to our health is now in mainstream news. Fermented foods are rich in bacteria and other micro-organisms that benefit both our guts and our health. These tasty foods are often rich in enzymes and vitamins too. 

In this workshop:

  • I’ll share the benefits of culturing and consuming good bacteria, including recent research
  • You’ll taste a range of fermented foods and drinks, including Kimchi, kefir, beetroot kvass, sauerkraut, other seasonal fermented veggies, nut cheeses, fermented gluten-free crackers and wraps
  • I’ll show you how to make these products
  • The do’s and don’ts of making ferments safely
  • You’ll make your vegetable ferment to take home
  • News about natural prebiotic foods

Some of these are wonderful healing drinks: beetroot kvass, packed with vitamins and beneficial bacteria; kefir, made from coconut milk or soya milk. Full notes are provided.  

A delicious Macrobiotic Lunch will be served  

Afternoon with Anna:
