A Wild Ferment Masterclass

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 masterclass provides an in-depth hands on opportunity to learn the processes we use in our restaurant kitchen. The techniques we use are ancient.

‘In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy’ – William Blake.

Class One: Understanding Fermented Foods. 7-10pm Thursday 2nd & 23rd October. £80 per guest.

In this course, learn, explore, make and taste foods which have been preserved by the process of fermentation. Our head chef and cookery school tutor will explain why so many of our favourite foods are produced in this way and the key techniques to doing this at home. Come and discover how simple it is to make nutritious, pro biotic food for you and your family.
