Fermentation Workshop – June

Join us for our June Fermentation workshop with Jelena.  You will hear about different techniques for preserving and fermenting food before exploring lacto-fermentation in greater depth. You will learn about this month’s seasonal ferments and how they can help your health. We will explore what wild edibles we can include in our June kimchi and how to ferment a range of other seasonal vegetables.

You will leave 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 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!

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.
