Learn to make your own fermented sodas! We will learn about the history, nutritive value, and simple technique of fermenting beverages three ways: with a ginger-bug, whey (a by-product from cheese-making), and water-kefir grains. Carbonate your beverages naturally and enjoy probiotic benefits. Each student will get recipe guides, ginger-bug and a personal bottle of our class-brewed root beer to ferment at home! "The process of fermenting foods; to preserve them and to make them more digestible and nutritious - is as old as humanity" - Sandor Katz, Wild Fermentation.

Response Time:
I began my journey over 10 years ago working in high-end food service with a special focus on local, sustainable and handmade food. I have classical training in serving wine, cheese and beer. Partway through my career, I began to desire a more intimate connection with the food and beverages I loved. I learned about sustainable farming through the work-travel organization World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF). I began to grow my own food making the most out of my urban garden space. Preserving the harvest was inherently the next step as I endeavoured further into urban homesteading. Soon, I was creating my own alchemy of ferments and preserves, taking quickly to Sandor Katz's book, Wild Fermentation. I interned with Teutonic Wine Company in Oregon, learning how to make wine naturally with only ambient yeasts. I learned to make yogurt and fresh cheese at home; and aged, unpasteurized cheese with Garden Variety Cheese Company in Watsonville, CA. I preferred the flavors and health benefits of these wild ferments and continued to explore these lesser-known, ancient methods of preserving. Through my studies, I was introduced to herbal medicine as yet another form of preserving. I apprenticed with the SF Herbalist assisting with their product line of Herban Elixirs. I continue to be driven by the desire to learn, create, and share.
