Feed Yourself Well with Fermented Foods (Gut Health) *NEW VENUE*

Feed yourself well with fermented foods (Gut Health)

Why not join us on our fun interactive class learning and understanding about gut bacteria and how it has a massive impact on our health and wellbeing.

Inside our bodies, there is a whole universe of forty trillion bacteria busy at work, transforming the food we eat, which is now understood to have a huge impact on our health in several ways. It’s great to know we can nurture and manipulate this through the food we eat. Fermented foods play a crucial role in feeding our gut microbiota.

At this gut health class, Emily will help you understand more about what the gut microbiota is and what our amazing bacteria can do. She will then go on to show you how to prepare some fermented foods, easily from scratch, giving you the know how to take away, along with your filled up jars.

Everyone is welcome!

We will make:

Water kefir (v) Ⓥ
Simple sauerkraut (clip jar & pickling stone provided) (v) Ⓥ
Spicy pickled radishes or cucumbers (v) Ⓥ
Fermented Tomatoes (demonstration only) (v) Ⓥ

About Emily

Emily Carey has been teaching people to cook classic and original dishes for over 10 years, driven by her passion to make home cooking more widely accessible.

Her childhood, in a home where good food, especially Mediterranean food was enjoyed, started her off on a journey of discovery and exploration. She developed an eye for good recipes and learning what foods work well together, adding to this a flair for bringing food and people together, and that became the basis for Get Cooking.

With a simple start in 2010, and the opening of an exciting and unique venue in Farsley in 2016, she has continually incorporated fresh ideas into the business including her recent passion for gut health.

What you can expect from this course
  • We begin with a brief introduction to the course structure and venue facilities. Complimentary drinks are available at the Farsley venue. 
  • All ingredients, kitchen equipment and an apron are provided. A fermenting kit – which includes a clip jar and pickling stone – will be yours to take away and included in the price. We do ask you bring a container to take away your pickled radishes or cucumbers (details are sent on course booking email). 
  • There will also be a tasting session in the last hour of the course.
