Eat At Your Own Risk

20 Sep 2014

Cheese, kimchi, bread, beer, yoghurt, sausage, tempeh, trassi, sauerkraut... All these amazing products owe their unique taste to living and growing micro-organisms.
Disgusting? We don't think so! At Fermentology! You can find the most delicious fermented products of this day and age. Because, lets be honest, all the good stuff comes from fermentation.

Fermentology! is a new initiative by the NeighbourFood Market and Mediamatic. The first edition will take place on Saturday 20 september, from 12.00 – 22.00 in and around the Mediamatic Fabriek.
