‘Fermentalist’ Gathering

There have been monthly gathering in the local area since August – since we had the visitation of Dearbhla Reynolds (and family) and her passion for sharing the art of transforming foods!

So what is wonderful is that monthly the desire to meet, chop, chat, swap recipes and encourage each other has continued to grow…

September the first gathering, post Dearhbla’s workshops was at Nicky and Erd’s beautiful quinta…

Lime Pickle….tomato salsa, ginger bug and much more!

And so it continued, I will need help from the group to remember where we went next….and in time we will add pictures and descriptions …..

7 months later, we are back at Mount of Oaks – a much bigger group – so the culture is spreading and attracting a wider and even more diverse bunch of people.

14 adults and 2 youngsters crammed into the common space to make sauerkraut, preserved oranges, an orange salsa and fermented ginger…

Then the following weekend several of us from the group gave a little demonstration as part of the eco-market in Alpedrinha of how to make a basic kraut!

It was super fun and somehow we managed it in both Portuguese and English!

Next up is an afternoon workshop for those who are beginning their fermenting journey…it will be in Alpedrinha, 8th April. For full details and the registration form, check the event

Many thanks to all the fermentalists those in this local group, and those all over the world who share, inspire and conspire to create the yummy health revolution!
