Upcoming Workshops

Lacto-Fermentation for Beginners: Fermented Carrot Sticks  – Monday, March 19 2018, 6:30-7:30pm @ the Co-op. $30/ticket. Lacto-fermentation is one of the oldest forms of food preservation, and to this day is used in many cultures around the world. In addition to preserving food, fermentation can help improve your diet by making nutrients more available and by replenishing your gut with beneficial bacteria. This workshop provides the tools and information required to demystify lacto- fermentation and make it easy for anyone to do at home. Each participant will bring home their very own jar of fermenting carrot sticks which are delicious as a snack or salad topping, as well as a simple airlock system that can be reused for future fermentation projects. Led by Vivien Underdown and Mattimus Goulet, who are passionate about food and have taught many fermentation workshops in the Hamilton area.


SOLD OUT!!! Making Sourdough Bread at Home – an IntroductionSunday, March 4 2018, 2:00 – 4:00pm @ the Co-op. In this class we will attempt to demystify sourdough baking and show you how easy it is to do in your own kitchen. This class will be interactive and hands on. We will cover how to make your own sourdough ‘starter’ or culture, what tools you need to bake bread at home, and how to go about baking your own bread from start to finish. You will be able to take home sourdough starter with you – please bring a container with a lid if you would like to do so. Jordan Weisz has worked in the food and hospitality industry for the better half of a decade and is in the process of opening his own restaurant here in Hamilton. Jordan has been baking sourdough for over a year now and has become very much obsessed with the craft of baking the perfect bread.
