KEVA planks...

Only one simple building block is used which allows for an infinite number of construction possibilities. Planks are assembled using various stacking techniques.

Kombucha Tea presented by Cheryl Paswater

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation.

We will cover the basic science behind making kombucha, why it’s good for you, and how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you! All participants will take home a starter culture!

Cheryl Paswater is the Chief Fermentationist and CEO of Contraband Ferments as well as an Educator, Health Coach, Artist, Beekeeper, and Writer.  She contributes as a writer for Edible Brooklyn, has guest co-hosted on the radio show “Fuhmentaboudit!” (on Heritage Food Radio Network), Co-Organizes the NYC Fermentation Festival, and is an Organizer of the NYC Ferments Meetup.

Registration suggested beginning Monday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254, or register online.
