14 October 2019 • Seasonal Ferments: Kimchi + Kombucha

This is an excellent class with a super knowledgable teacher, Molly. Some degree of prior knowledge is helpful. The class of eight was just the right size. Getting to take home what we made was great. My second ferment Kombucha was delicious! I have certainly added to my knowledge about fermentation (had very little skill prior to class). Molly was fabulous in taking time with each of us, ensuring we knew what we were doing. The notes given are pretty helpful and I have referred back to them a number of times each day since the class! Fun class while learning. I would recommended doing this class with a friend - great fun!
