Come and hear me speak about the mysterious workings of the gut microbiome and explain how your microbes can influence everything from the food you choose to eat or how fast you drive to your mood, weight and hormonal balance. Our relationship with our microbiome goes as deep as the very organelles that power our cells, our mitochondria were once bacteria that we became one with in order to continue the commensal relationship that benefits us both. I'll look at what happens when we're out of balance and how to bring back the harmony our bodies and souls need to thrive.

Fermenting Day in Bridport

Learn to safely ferment all manner of things in my light filled Bridport kitchen. Depending on seasonal availability we'll make kraut or kimchi, a brine pickle like fermented carrot sticks, a citrus pickle like preserved tangerines or lemons a fermented chutney or jam like fig butter or maybe some probiotic ketchup. you'll also learn how to make and care for water kefir, milk kefir, kvass and labneh. We'll take a break for a simple lunch of soup, salad, sourdough toast (gluten free), labneh and a host of pickles. 

Groups will be no larger than 6, so lots of opportunity to ask questions and get individual attention! The days are always lots of fun, hanging out with like minded souls and being silly while you learn. Apparently you learn more if you laugh a lot...

The course costs £90 including lunch, but I do ask you to bring your own jars and apron, or can send you home with your pickles in bags to jar up at home. I will email all recipes to you after the course. The deposit to secure your place is £45 with the balance payable no later than 1 week before the course date. 

Signed copies of both my books are available to buy for £15 on the day.

If you would like to book, please email me through the contact page. I'm excited to meet you and get fermenting!
