Fermentation Basics: Curtido Workshop with Kelly McVicker

Join Ruby Kelly McVicker (founder of McVicker Pickles) for a Fermentation Basics workshop. This workshop will introduce fermentation concepts to beginners via a hands-on creation of curtido: that delicious, lightly-fermented condiment that is typically served on pupusas

This event will also serve as an informational gathering for those interested in joining the Ruby Fermentation Club. (Interested in joining the club but can't attend this workshop? Join our Google Group to be apprised of future gatherings! Email fermentation-club+subscribe@therubysf.com) 

While we work on our communal batch of curtido, we will talk about how developing a fermentation practice can help you notice the changing seasons, experience the farmers markets in a new way, and connect you to your unique microbiome and the food that helps nourish it.

Each person will get to take home a jar of fermented curtido. Kelly will also bring a ready-to-eat batch for us to enjoy—pupusas from a local pupuseria included!

PLEASE NOTE: There is an ingredients fee of $15 payable at the start of class! Please pay at the front desk!
