Pickling and fermentation are ancient techniques of preserving vegetables and intensifying their nutritional value. During these processes, seemingly dormant produce is transformed by teeming microscopic life in the pickling jar.

In this workshop, we will discuss fermentation and everything probiotic. Begüm will share the effects and benefits of fermented vegetables, their traditional and cultural uses, and the microbiology behind their creation. We will then have an open discussion about how fermentation has or has not been a part of our lives. Participants will also have a chance to sample various fermented pickles.

In the second part of the workshop, Begüm will demo how to make several fermented vegetables.
Workshop Price: 130 TL
