Sauerkraut for Beginners

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

£30

Fermentation has been around for centuries, and it has certainly been making a comeback these past few years. However, it can sometimes seem a bit daunting and there is a common misconception that making ferments from scratch should be limited to seasoned fermenters and experienced chefs.

This workshop aims to make fermentation accessible to all, so that you can confidently start your own projects at home. We’ll cover the basics of lacto-fermentation, learn about health & safety measures, and end with a little tasting session exploring various ferments made with local or foraged produce.

You will make and take home your own unique jar of sauerkraut, and get to experiment with different flavours using herbs and seeds (foraged or grown on-site). You will also receive an information booklet with all the information you need to start your own lacto-ferments at home.

Fermentation is a healthy and creative way to add more veg into your diet. It is also a fantastic way to capture seasonal flavours.

Feel free to get in touch with the Make CIC office at 0151 601 8665 or email hello@makecic.org

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, a register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this. Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.

What if Make CIC cancel the event?

This event does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales to proceed. Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled – in this instance we will give as much notice as possible and offer alternative dates if appropriate.

What if I can no longer attend and need to cancel my ticket?

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop. Please note: Refunds will be given minus Eventbrite fees, unless Make CIC cancel the class, in which case a full refund will be given.

Why is the Refund / Transfer Policy 7 days?

This is because we pay our practitioners, staff and life models fair wages for their work. Giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

What should I bring into the event?

You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. All materials and ingredients are provided. You may want to bring a notepad to make notes if you wish.
