Ferments and Tonics Part 2

On March 29 the other part of Ferments and Tonics introduces dozens of additional videos on everything from fermenting with tree saps to  collecting yeasts and pollens from flowers to create tasty ferments, to using filamentous based substrates to create new food tastes and comforting familiar ones with super umami.

Also, a few pretty simple lactofermented dishes that just require salt. 

If you have already registered for the events, created a video for any event, or received a scholarship there is no fee for this new event on March 29. We’ll have some segments from the last live event in addition to the new ones released on March 29. 

There is still time to get something in for the Asian Techniques Event. Deadline is April 4 but we know ours going to ask for another week. If you need help let us know! 

So this March 29 segment is a lagniappe, and a way to still get in on the over 200+ planned videos you’ll be able to watch. While we prepare for our April 25th Asian techniques event and ourJuly 19 we have virtual book fair of writers that have or will publish books this year, along with a review of some recently published scientific papers that have essentially changed everything.
