Fermentation Workshop: The Lab - Experiments in Culinary Dissidence

  • Silo No 39 Upper Gardener Street Brighton BN1 4AN (map)

Hosted by Octopus Alchemy

Come to our second workshop of the season! A radical laboratory for the community! A co-created space where we can play with ideas, perspectives and most importantly, our food!

Our experiments begin with a good natter on the politics of our health and food, developing into a juicy line up of new and innovative demonstrations to supercharge your own fermentin' potential and to get your kitchen off to a banging start in 2016.

The practical segment of the workshop will be where we try to animate our recent crowdfunding objectives. As a group we'll work with an array of different ingredients intercepted on their way to landfill - coming together to utilize our new fermentin' toolkit to produce a distinct and quirky product that will be redistributed sometime later when it's reached a fine potency!

What to expect:

A fast paced 40min presentation on the 'politics of fermentation'.

A line up of interactive demonstrations that teach you creative ways to ferment, using both dry-salting and brining techniques! 


A practical session where you get to put your new found skills to use in puzzling out an appropriate way to ferment our most recent haul of intercepted veg! 

Take a portion home with you!

A bloody good time!
