Fermentation Workshop – June

Since our May Fete, lots of people have been asking us about our rhubarb hot sauce, so we have decided to include it in our June fermentation course!
Join us today then to learn how to make our signature Greenhouse hot sauce, explore how to ferment tea that the whole family can enjoy and prepare lacto-fermented early summer sauerkraut. You will take home two jars of ferments and kombucha SCOBY with starter tea, perfect for the beginning of BBQ season. We will use many aromatic herbs/flowers and fresh organic produce from our garden and you can taste flavoursome ferments on the day.
No need to take notes on the day, we’ll provide you with a detailed handout with recipes to recreate them at home.
We also have a community group on Facebook for any troubleshooting questions and to share your fermentation journey:

You will leave the workshop with three ferments to take home and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen.

If you can bring three large (c.500ml) clean, recycled jars with you, please do. If not, we have kilner jars we can supply at cost and some recycled jars for free.

Half of the workshop proceeds will go to the Greenhouses to support our work and the other half towards fundraising for Jelena’s nephew Jude’s operation to help him learn how to walk. You can read about little Jude and cerebral palsy here.

There is 1 remaining free ticket on this workshop for BPCG volunteers.  Please contact Kate on director@brockwellgreenhouses.org.uk if you would like one of these!

Jelena is a trained macrobiotic and wholefoods chef with a passion for fermentation.  Jelena has run very popular Family Fermentation workshops for children at the Greenhouses.  This time it’s the grown ups’ turn!  Jelena will run adult fermentation workshops every 3rd Saturday of the month this year.

Jelena trained with the world-renowned macrobiotic counsellor Simon Brown between 2009 and 2011. After 12 years in news and current affairs, Jelena left her job at the BBC to pursue her passion for food full time.  Jelena has in recent years led numerous macrobiotic and wholefood cooking and fermentation workshops, published nutritious recipes in the Serbian magazine Sensa, worked with private clients and wrote a bi-lingual blog for a while, focusing on healthier food choices for the whole family.

Spring Fermentation Workshop

Join us for a Fermentation Celebration of the arrival of spring! You will hear from our fermentation magician Jelena about different techniques for preserving and fermenting food before we settle on exploring lacto-fermentation in greater depth. You will learn why beetroot kvass is good for your liver in spring months while sampling kvass deliciously flavoured with various herbs and spices; we will explore what early wild edibles we can include in our March kimchi and how to ferment vegetables that mostly end up in the compost bin like broccoli and cauliflower stalks.

You will leave with three ferments to take home: kimchi, kvass and turshiya – and the confidence to ferment seasonally in your kitchen.

If you can bring three large (c.500ml) clean, recycled jars with you, please do. If not, we have kilner jars we can supply at cost and some recycled jars for free.

Half of the workshop proceeds will go to the Greenhouses to support our work and the other half towards fundraising for Jelena’s nephew Jude’s operation to help him learn how to walk. You can read about little Jude and cerebral palsy here.
