Fermentation Seminar with Sandor Katz

3:00 PM

Sunday 18th June, 2017

Square Mile Coffee Roasters, 8 Pritchards Road, E2 9AP


Please join us for a Sunday afternoon workshop at Square Mile Coffee Roasters in Bethnal Green featuring internationally-renowned fermentation revivalist Sandor Katz. Starting with the basic questions, “What is fermentation?” and “Why is it practiced everywhere?” Katz will touch on recent microbiology and microbiome research and explore how this universal and cross-cultural practice transforms food. He’ll also discuss practical considerations for novice and experienced fermentation enthusiasts, whether they are looking to make their first ever kraut or refine their skills. We are pleased to be partnering with Nick Vadasz of Vadasz Deli, a Hackney-based producer of naturally fermented pickles, who will talk about the application of these principles in practice.
