Take care of your Waste

Zuursalon: Friday 9 December 20:00 - 22:30

The estimated global food wastage is at 1.6 billion tonnes per year. 1.3 billion tonnes of that wastage was still edible when thrown away.... Let's change this discours, reduce our footprint and learn how to take care of our waste. During this edition of Zuursalon we will look into reusing salted pickle brines, how to create your own compost in the city, what we can learn from the micro-organisms in a cow's stomach and what you can brew from our leftover kitchen waste.

Pekelzouten - Pekelzouten is a process where the salt used to ferment foods is reused. Sasker Scheerder


Sasker Scheerder - Manenwolf's Rokerij & Foodlab

Sasker is the founder of Manenwolf's Foodlab and Smokehouse. At Manenwolf's they research and reconstruct food and food preparation techniques. Sasker will introduce the technique he calls ‘pekelzouten’ where the salt that was used to ferment food is used again. The salt has a unique taste and gives a new dimension to your foods. Together we will taste some of his delicious fermented food waste.

Simone Vos - Agriton

Simone is a farmer at Agriton in the south of Friesland. She will show us the ‘Bokashi Bin’ that uses organic waste to turn into a nutrient-rich compost. Simone will teach us how to make our own compost at home even if you don’t have a garden.

Gjalt Jan Feersma Hoekstra

Gjalt is also a farmer at Agriton. Using the example of a cow’s stomach, he will explain to us how to use micro-organisms in an agricultural way. The stomach is a sensitive organ that needs healthy food to keep the microbiological processes going.

Meneer Wateetons

Fermentation-enthusiast Meneer Wateetons is the curator of the Zuursalon and the host of the evening.
