Fermentation Fever was our latest Slow Food U class on Sunday, April 6, at the Sacramento Natural Food Co-op’s learning center. We were in good hands with our instructor, Janet McDonald, who teaches numerous classes at the Co-op and whose kitchen is filled with vats and crocks of various fermentation projects. Janet demystified the fermentation process, so the fifteen participants now feel comfortable experimenting with fermenting at home. One participant said, “It changed my life! I always wanted to pickle but I thought it was too hard and involved cooking. I found out it did not! Janet MacDonald was a terrific teacher.” Everyone went home with a jar a sauerkraut and a jar of fermented carrot pickles.

The goal of Slow Food U is to provide low cost education classes, taught by Slow Food Sacramento members or our partners in the community. We strive to keep the classes low cost so they are accessible to everyone. Past topics include Bacon Curing, Lemons Lemons Lemons, Thai cooking, Winter Gardens, bike tours of edible gardens, and Foraging Along the Parkway.

Please contact Karen Auwaerter if you have a class suggestion or if you would like to teach a class.
