Kimchi Cocktails?? We re taking fermented goodness to a new level in this two part hands-on workshop which walks participants through the process of crafting authentic kimchi then offers unusual and creative ways for serving and enjoying it. You ve never seen kimchi like this! In the first half of the workshop you’ll learn about the history and nutritive benefits of fermented foods in a fun, hands-on format with lots of tasty samples. Nicole Easterday, Founder of FARMcurious will explain the science and history of lacto-fermentation and show you the process for creating a classic red-pepper kimchi. In the second segment Nicole will show us some delicious ways to enjoy our kimchi in traditional as well as unconventional ways (can anyone say kimchi cocktail??). Participants will leave this workshop with a recipe, a jar of kimchi to take home and ferment and the knowledge to recreate their success in the future. Perhaps you ll even meet some other people who are hot for kimchi!
