What you will do

During the workshop you will learn the basic principles of fermentation. First, there will be sauerkraut for you to taste, so you learn to recognise the taste. You will start working with the ingredients, applying different recipes and ideas. After you have made your first batch of sauerkraut, you will take it home until it is ready to serve.
