New lockdown cooking skill to learn: fermenting
Span Community House is holding a series of online fermentation workshops over three weeks in October/November.

Fermenting is an easy way of preserving foods that results in jars of tasty foodstuffs like kimchi and sauerkraut that are good for our health. It is also a way of homemaking naturally bubbly drinks.

The fermenting and pickling masterclasses are being presented by Span Community House in partnership with The Fermentary. They encompass a 'learn-at-home' series of online hands-on group sessions with instructive workshops and time for any questions to be answered.

The Fermentary sells award-winning small-batch ferments and shares the art of fermentation in books and classes and workshops.

Its founder, Sharon Flynn is considered one of Australia's foremost experts on fermentation. She spent more than 20 years immersing herself in the flavours and techniques of the ancient art of slow fermentation in Malaysia, Japan, Europe and the US before setting up her own space in the regional Victorian town of Daylesford in 2013.
