Masterclass on the art of fermentation

Venture to Borough Market’s Cookhouse, for a morning mastering the art of fermentation with Rachel de Thample of the Market Table.

You'll get to grips with: 

Sourdough – all you need to know how to make your own sourdough loaves, take away a pot of sourdough starter and make sourdough pancakes, which we’ll eat honey fermented cherries.

Kombucha – we’ll marry tea from the market with a Kombucha scoby. You’ll get to take home your own jar of fermenting tea, which will include a scoby for you to make future batches.

Kimchi – we’ll make a jar of kimchi using organic seasonal ingredients from the Chegworth Valley Farm and spices from the market.

Summer Fruit Shrubs – mix up your own gut-soothing drinking vinegar using organic summer fruit and honey from the market.

If you'd like to join Rachel in the Cookhouse you can book here.

Tickets cost £85 and booking is essential. Places will be limited due to the size of the space.
