The Living Pantry: Kombucha 101

December 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Virtual Event

Fermentation is one of the most exciting transformations to take place in the kitchen. It is a natural process that humans have harnessed to maximize a food’s healthfulness.  The kitchen is the site of ancestral ritual, scientific experimentation, and collective transformation. It is the place where we make and consume sensually, deliciously, and intentionally.

In this class, herbalist and author Christine Buckley, will guide us through the preparation of kombucha.  Over two weeks a sugary tea will become a fizzy, tart beverage filled with beneficial probiotics.  Together we’ll make a base kombucha and go over best practices and how to avoid a failed batch of booch.

Please note, this is an a la carte class in the three Part Series: A Sensory Exploration of Fermented Foods.  If you’re interested in the art of fermentation, the living pantry, and (of course) saving some money $ you may wish to register for that ticket.  Click HERE for purchase.

Christine Buckley 

Christine is an herbalist, a worker, and a writer.  Her work connects people to themselves, each other, plants, and the planet.

Christine’s first book, Plant Magic: Herbalism in Real Life debuted this year with Roost Books. Plant Magic is an inviting and irreverent call to action: a hopeful and practical guide to pursuing individual and collective change and growth at home. Much of what we need to be well and stay connected is already here: growing in our backyards and tucked away in our kitchen cabinets. Common weeds and kitchen spices are essential allies in our fight for whole health for all.

Christine works professionally as a cook, farm-hand, and herbalist. She also holds workshops and personalized consultations where she helps people gain the knowledge and skills they need to work confidently in their homes and communities by integrating herbalism, cooking, and food-growing in their lives.

You can learn more about her work on Patreon where she run a project called Garden Medicine Club.
