Fermented food and drink - An Introduction

Welcome to the world of fermented foods!


During this class we will create four popular ferments of sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha and kefir. If your fermented food bill is starting to rival the cost of your utility bills, this class will give you the confidence to produce delicious batches at home that will be affordable and should keep you in kraut for months


Traditional recipes never contain more than a handful of ingredients. Across the evening we will taste finished products, make our own for take away and learn all about how to manage our ferments at home, to cultivate the flora and bacteria our guts need.


Fermentation isn’t just a great way to preserve food for longer. There are plenty of positive bacterias and acids that build up during the process, offering great, forgotten flavours.


These bacterias also have the ability to unlock vital nutrients in our food that are otherwise unavailable to us


Alongside our ferments tasting, there will be a selection of e5 sourdough and cheese’s to eat.


You’ll take home a goodie bag of ferments in a beautiful Weck jar and a glass flip-top bottle, as well as recipes from the class.




Classes run once a month from 6 – 9PM.


E5 Bakehouse, Arch 395, Mentmore Terrace, London E8 3PH.
