Tastemakers | Fermentation Workshop with Sandor Katz
This February, explore the wild world of fermented foods with a special Tastemakers mini-series featuring James Beard award-winning food writer, author, and activist Sandor Katz.
Come learn how to create vibrant, striking flavors with live-culture foods like sauerkraut and kimchi in this hands-on workshop, led by the author of what Newsweek named the “fermentation bible.” You’ll get hands-on experience crafting unique foods that incorporate the world around you as Katz shares the lessons he’s learned over his career, and discover how easy it really is to build healthy, fermented dishes at home.
We do ask that you bring your own kitchen or chef’s knife (such as this one) for use during the workshop. Please leave your knife in your vehicle before and after the workshop; if you arrive early, choose to explore the galleries, or visit Onyx Coffee Lab after the event, we ask that you return your knife to your vehicle for safety and security reasons.
See you there!
For those looking for a deeper dive into his journey, expertise, and activism, Katz will also be holding a lecture, book signing, and small reception at the Momentary Friday, February 24, sharing how his own career and personal story have brought fermented flavors to the forefront.
