Now recognised for its numerous health benefits, gut-loving ferments have long been a way to preserve foods. As awareness of the bacterial composition of our bodies continues to grow, fermented foods and beverages are making a huge comeback, transforming from a few bottles of pickles in our grandmother’s cupboard to a hip-and-funky trend featured in upmarket restaurants and on the pages of glossy food magazines.

Become part of this revival as kombucha brew mistress Kari Doorduin shares her passion for making fermented beverages, and gives you the chance to start making your own in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Lunch at the Bakery is included.
