Chef Frank brings you Fearless Fermentation, the newest version of his wildly popular 4 week virtual course detailing the many aspects of fermenting fearlessly.
From popular fermented foods, to a variety of lesser known ferments, and on to mead, kombucha, and other fermented beverages, Fearless Fermentation provides you with the recipes, instruction, valuable tips, tools and live lessons that guarantee that you’ll walk away a confident and fearless fermenter.
There is often fear of the unknown, and for many, the world of fermentation is uncharted territory; a place where simple ingredients are transformed into flavorful and nutrient dense creations.
Fermentation, although so simple, requires a bit of surrender and trust in the unknown. In many cases, we put our “health” in the hands of salt, allowing it to transform humble vegetables into some of the most revered condiments and sauces. For beverages, we feed our friendly bacteria sweeteners in exchange for bubbly beers, meads, and digestive tonics. Through simple techniques, we gain the ability to utilize and co–create, while the ferment acts on its own.
The most experienced fermenter still expects the occasional surprise. You see, this “controlled” process is still quite wild and independent, and we have the ability to gain a sense of confidence and surrender from this knowledge.
Our historical relationship with fermentation has had almost as much of a hand at shaping our food systems as salt has. We have been able to open trade routes, preserve food, and nourish the health of many cultures through this ancient practice. When we look deeper, we find that these little colonies of funky flora provide more stewardship to us than the other way around.
The process of fermentation dates back thousands of years, allowing people around the globe to preserve a variety of ingredients found on their surrounding landscape. What may have started out as an accidental discovery, has turned into a vital technique for many. From simple sauerkraut to botanical brews, fermentation transforms simple ingredients into delicious creations.
Although there is great mystery around fermentation, the techniques that Chef Frank shares through this course will remove any fear of the unknown.
Crafting your own fermented foods and beverages will save you money, create a better connection to your food, and can contribute to improved health.
