Winter Fermentation Workshop

Join us at the Greenhouse kitchen for a relaxed and communal Saturday workshop on fermentation where we will learn how to make seasonal ferments for your table.  Jelena is running these workshops every 3rd Saturday in the month.

We will talk about the importance and benefits of lacto-fermentation while chopping, grating and squeezing. Everyone will have a chance to taste different home-made ferments and discuss how we can include them in our daily diet. No prior knowledge of fermentation is necessary and any questions about the process are welcome.

You will make and take away a jar * each of Winter Sauerkraut with Jerusalem artichokes, Kefir and Brined Vegetables.  *If you can bring large 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 are 2 free tickets on this workshop for BPCG volunteers.  Please contact Kate on director@brockwellgreenhouses.org.uk if you would like one of these!

Our Winter Fermentation Workshop will be run by Jelena Belgrave, 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 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.
