Get Cultured!: An Open Forum on Starter Cultures in Fermentation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tara Whitsitt of Fermentation on Wheels will present an open forum on starter cultures used with fermented foods & beverages. She will share and discuss from a collection of dairy kefir, tibicos, sourdough, and kombucha. In this forum, we will discuss ferments that require inoculation - their history, how to feed them, and the delicious & nourishing foods they create. Attendees are encouraged to bring starter cultures of their own to share and may also bring a jar to take a starter culture from the workshop home with them.

Fermentation on Wheels is a community from Eugene, OR that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, and visual arts projects that raise food awareness and teach fermentation. The community organizes potlucks and teaches fermentation in a school bus that has been converted into a fermentation lab and workshop space. They are now touring the United States, harvesting produce alongside small-scale farmers and holding workshops on the importance of fermentation and micro-agriculture.
