Zuur Vis Design Eat Bacterie Pis Bloem

Dijkspark - Openings Weekend. Day 3

13 Sep 2015

Fungal growth, acidification, decay.. it sounds dirty, but it's these processes that make your beer and cheese taste so delicious. Mediamatic is not afraid of a few little bacteria and brings you an homage to fermentation with Zuur. Make your own pickles during the Radijzen-Fest, learn the best fermentation tricks in the Zuur Salon and sit down at one of the food stands on our market. Taste and learn from the masters.

Zuur is part of the Dijkspark - Opening Festival. Three days of Pickling, Fish, Design, Eat, Bacteria, Piss, Flower at Mediamatic.

Fermented Food Market - Fermented food market Eens in de zoveel tijd organiseren we een foodmarket met de focus op gefermenteerd eten. Ontdek de enorme hoeveelheid aan soorten gefermenteerde gerechten en ingrediënten.

During the fermentation process ingredients are converted or broken down by tiny micro-organisms. These bacteria, fungi and yeasts alter the product's taste, smell and look. Or, for instance, make them easier to digest or extend their expiration date. At the Zuur market you will find the most fanatical fermenters in town. Some even bring their favourite organisms!

Participants are: Lepelboom, Meneer van Beuningen, Thull's, Mama Bakery, Brouwerij de Bierkraai, Myco Brewery, Kefir Workshop, Bar Dronkers, Karel Goudsblom, Butchers Teers and Copperhead Gin, The Beef Chief, Adam's Bissap Wijn and Friet&Mer. Plus many more.

Pounds of fruit and vegetables are discarded daily, for being the wrong shape or size. That's why CornelissenFreshFood, Lepelboom and Mediamatic join forces to fight the waste together. In the Radijzen-Fest we invite you help us preserve kilos of discarded radishes. You will leave with your own can of delicious pickles. Check out the recipe.
