“Kristen and Christopher are passionate about fermentation, and their mission is to share their passion with everyone. This course is just what I needed to help me understand the science behind fermenting vegetables. Kirsten demonstrates the techniques and explains every step along the way. Christopher kindly responded to my questions via email. I'm also grateful for the handbook which I will be referring to often. I highly recommend this course!”

Instructor Bio:

Hi, I'm Kirsten and I ferment things. I began fermenting on our 40 acre small-holding over 2 decades ago. I didn't have the language to say that was what I was doing, I just taught myself to preserve everything that we grew. I didn't have a clue or the internet but I had plenty of passion and idealism to figure out how it was done "old school" and maybe, most importantly, I had nobody that told me I couldn't do this. The passion around food systems has been with me for over 3 decades and at some point the two collided and as my responsibilities to raising children waned. I found myself sharing the passion and joy of working with microbes to create delicious healthy food first locally then globally. In this desire to see everyone have access to fermentation I've co-written (with my husband Christopher) the books Fermented Vegetables, Fiery Ferments, Miso, Tempeh, Natto and Other Tasty Ferments, The Big Book of Cidermaking and forthcoming Homebrewed Vinegar. I have a lot of great fails. I think working with tempeh has given me the most humility as I've learned to push it past soy beans. The most expensive fail was the 30 gallons of sauerkraut that was fine in all ways except the texture--which was spreadable like butter. There is no market for spreadable kraut--yet. I am delighted to be able to share what I know with you here. Feel free to reach out through this platform or at kirsten@ferment.works.
