Our first five fermentation master classes have gone down a treat, sold out in fact every time. Feedback has been heart warming and we have certainly enjoyed teaching our eager students all whom have gone home empowered with their new found bubbling fermentation knowledge. It brings us great pleasure to announce further dates available on the 13th and 27th of November.
Places are limited, however armed with the simple knowledge of this ancient art the culinary fermentation possibilities will be limitless to you. Book soon lovelies. 01934 863713
We founded The Ethicurean on the idea of ‘a sense of place’, taking inspiration from our native surroundings, the history, culture and community who grow food on it. We are fascinated by the culture of our local area and the wild pro-biotic cultures that live upon all of the produce we grow and eat. Our Wild Ferment master class provides an in-depth hands on opportunity to learn the processes we use in our restaurant kitchen. The techniques we use are ancient.
