Our September Fermenterie Event, in photos, part 1

I have been so busy since this event that I haven’t gotten around to posting these yet, and these are just part 1… After the event I spent nearly a month traveling, and since getting back my free time has been soaking into the process of finding and buying a house for my business and for my life! Which seems to be finally happening. Anyway, here goes — for the next few months I will be catching up to the present.

And a hint of whats to come — Katie Grove, local artist, artisan and teacher, who attended and supported our event as a helper, with one of her baskets and the just-created place settings for the lunch

Next comes lunch —-

Homesteaders Kitchen, Japanese Kitchen in the fall…

In the fall I will be teaching two classes through SUNY Ulster Continuing Ed, one which I have now offered twice, Homesteaders Kitchen Intensive, and a new class covering Japanese Home Cooking.

Both courses will be once monthly for three months, on weekends in a kitchen on the Stone Ridge Campus of SUNY Ulster.

The Homesteaders Kitchen Intensive will cover Cheese making, Sourdough Bread Baking, Lacto-fermentation and pickling, and basic wines and meads.

The Japanese course will cover many basics — Making soup stocks, both bone broth and mushroom broth; making Miso Paste and Sake; and making various other odds and ends, culminating in making a sushi and soup meal together.

Hope to see you in class —
