Dairy Flat Kimchi, Kraut, Kombucha & Kefir Class & Lunch | Sun 4 Aug


11am – 2.30pm
In the Lodge Kitchen at Dairy Flat Farm, Daylesford

Fermentation may be part of ancient history. It is certainly one of the oldest forms of preservation. But fermented foods are experiencing a renaissance: kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut and other fermentables appeal not only for their undoubted health benefits but also because they can be fun projects for cooks at all levels.

In a world saturated with processed foods we have been persuaded that all bacteria is bad for us. But in fact, pasteurisation and preservative laden ingredients are robbing us of certain naturally occurring beneficial organisms that are continuing to be shown to be essential for good health.

Having real fermented foods as key elements of our diets is becoming ever more crucial and important. The elevated state of flavor and nutritive value is a bonus. The fact that we can make many of these foods ourselves is a real silver lining.

The popularity of fermentation has sparked conversation amongst neighbours, friends and general community, sharing tips, SCOBY and MOTHERS.

We welcome you to the conversation in an intimate hands on class, in our Farm Lodge kitchen and dining space. We will work through our favourite recipes for our kimchi, kraut, kombucha and kefir, then sit down to a farm house style light lunch of filled freshly baked baguettes, soup and glass of wine.

Tickets |  $395 pp


Hands-on tuition, class notes, recipes, an apron, jar & SCOBY to take away and a tour of our beautiful Dairy Flat Farm.
