As part of the Chutney, Chooks and Champions exhibition and celebration of all things 'Showy', the Museum is sponsoring a new category in the Pavilion at the Murwillumbah Show; fermentation. To help you prepare entries for this new category, we're running a series of fermentation demonstrations at the Museum, with wholefoods chef and fermentation enthusiast Jean Martinez:

In this demonstration class, Jean will discuss practical tips for home fermentation and how to troubleshoot issues should they arise. Jean will demonstrate a sauerkraut recipe from scratch and provide you with tips to customise it to your tastes. Learn all the skills needed to enter your sauerkraut into the new fermentation category that the Museum is sponsoring at the Show. Samples of homemade sauerkraut will be available.

About our presenter:

Our workshops are presented by Jean Martinez, a Wholefoods Chef and Cooking Teacher based in our local area. Jean learnt about fermented foods and their benefits to health over 10 years ago, and has been a passionate fermenter and advocate for 'good bugs' ever since. Jean believes that fermentation is, at its heart, a simple process, and loves to share this technique so more people can make these health-supportive foods affordably at home.
When not teaching, Jean can be found tending to her flock of motley chooks or her wild veggie patch and fruit trees, and writing articles about food and sustainable living for the Tweed Valley Weekly.
