“Let Food Be Thy Medicine, And Let Medicine Be Thy Food.” - Hippocrates, Father of Western Medicine

The process of fermenting foods is as old as humanity. Fermenting preserves food and makes it more digestible and nutritious. Valued for its complex tastes, fermented foods are a powerful aid to digestion and a protection against disease." Asa Linéa Simonsson from Linéa Nutrition

The class will include:

  • Learning the nutritional benefits of fermented foods
  • Making kombucha and water kefir
  • Learning how to make sauerkraut and kimchi
  • How to make nut cheeses
  • How to make fermented salsa and chutneys to go with the cheeses
  • Delicious organic plant based lunch and recipe pack

Åsa Linéa Simonsson is the author of 'Fermentation - how to make your own sauerkraut, kimchi, brine pickles, kefir, kombucha, vegan dairy, and more' published by Anness Publishing Ltd. Asa grew up making ferments in her native Sweden; a trained nutritionist, naturopath and nurse, she runs a busy natural nutrition and health practice, Linéa Nutrition, in the UK combined with popular workshops and retreats.

Note On Ticket Price Change 

Apologies we have had to pause offering a concession rate for our paying in-person cookery classes. Due to the pandemic we cannot fit as many people in the kitchen which means classes generate less vital revenue needed to keep the charity going. 

We are still offering tiered ticket prices for our brilliant online live cookery classes (£5-£30), recordings of live classes (£3-£20) and everyone is welcome to sign up to our FREE to attend in-person and online community class newsletter list by emailing classes@madeinhackney.org. Thank you for your understanding. 

Refunds/transfers: we require a minimum of 7 days' notice for any cancellations or transfers once you have booked onto a class to enable us to try to resell your ticket.

Please understand our charity needs time to enable us to try to resell your tickets as we rely heavily on the income generated. You are also welcome to give your ticket to a friend or family member in case of last minute illness (just email classes@madeinhackney.org to let us know).

Vouchers: To redeem a voucher purchased on our site, please contact us to book a place. If contacting us by email please attach your voucher. If telephoning, have your voucher to hand so you can quote the voucher number.
