Fermented Drinks with Peter Barrett, Cook Blog

  • 1:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

Soda, kombucha, mead, vinegar… did you know that all of these delicious liquids can be fermented in your kitchen with very little effort and no fancy gadgetry?

In this workshop, we’ll explore this part of the fermentation spectrum, making tepache (a fermented beverage made from the peel and rind of pineapples), ginger beer, coffee kombucha, sumac vinegar and a brew of wild autumn herbs to demonstrate the many possibilities these techniques can unlock.

We’ll have some mature examples on-hand for tasting, and everyone will take home a couple jars of what we make to ferment at home.  To read Peter’s recently published feature in Chronogram on DIY Natural Sodas click here.

$90 per student includes 3hr workshop and recipes PLUS tastings and take-home-what-you-make.
