Join SoFAB and Edible New Orleans for an exciting fermentation workshop on a bus presented by Tara Whitsitt of Fermentation on Wheels. She’ll discuss starter cultures, including sourdough starter, kefir, and kombucha. Attendees may bring cultures of their own for exchange and discussion as well as bring an empty jar and take a culture home from the workshop. Tara will also teach & prepare a wild ferment with seasonal NOLA ingredients.
Fermentation on Wheels is a community from Eugene, OR that provides free food education and inspires people through workshops, literature, and visual arts projects that raise food awareness and teach fermentation. The community organizes potlucks and teaches fermentation in a school bus that has been converted into a creative kitchen and workshop space. They are now touring the United States, harvesting produce alongside small-scale farmers and holding workshops on the importance of fermentation and micro-agriculture.
