Fermenting Classes in Chicago
It's easy to make gourmet mustard at home!
In this class, we'll go over the history of mustard from around the world, basics of fermentation and the science behind hot and mild mustard. We'll grind seeds for coarse and creamy mustard, go over canning mustard for shelf-stable preservation and share ideas for incorporating this delicious condiment into recipes.
You'll go home with Maple Bourbon, Dijon-style and Bordeaux mustard in recycled jars, as well as recipes and sources to make more on your own.
This was such a great experience - easy, educational, and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.
I had a great time in this class. It ended up being more of a demonstration class than a hands on experience, but I definitely got a sense of how to make my own mustard and I got to take home 3 different kinds.
really good introduction to car maintenance. i really liked the class.
My husband was unexpectedly home for the weekend and he decided to take the class with me - this man does not cook! Fortunately the hands-on experience of cutting our chicken - held his interest and mine too! We will be buying whole chickens and using our new-found skill! The bonus of this class was the chicken that Breanne and Ariel prepared - so yummy - recipes and methods that we will use over and over.
The other bonus of the class was the camaraderie that was shared with other class participants and the instructors. What a fun experience!
Breanne designed and built a rooftop farm in the city nearly five years ago, where she grows all kinds of fruits and vegetables and tries not to let anything go to waste by preserving everything. For the past six years, Breanne,has taught adult and youth classes in organic agriculture, cider-brewing, composting, canning, grafting fruit trees, fermenting and urban foraging.
