Come and join us for some creative adventures with food fermentation
Kirkgate Market (above Kirkgate Shopping Centre, opposite Home Ffom Home cafe)
Thursday 12th May
FREE, ALL WELCOME
Our friends Charlie and Emma at Plenty would like to invite people to a food fermentation session.
Fermented foods are chock-full of probiotics or good bacteria. There has been lots of research showing how the ideal balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut forms the foundation for physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Examples of fermented foods are
• Kefir ( a fermented milk product that tastes like a drinkable yogurt)
Emma and Charlie will do a demo, bring samples for people to try, and talk about the health benefits & history of fermented food. You can also have a go at making your own fermented food (bring a jar or container). You are welcome to bring your own food and recipes too!
If you can please bring a non-perishable food item to our donations box for Bradford Metrop0litan Foodbank, who do an amazing job of providing food parcels to organisations working with vulnerable people in need of food in our district
More about Plenty:
“We are a community business, tackling food waste through preserving.We work with Bradford Council’s Markets Service to capture surplus produce from St James Wholesale Market alongside local growers. Quite often this produce cannot be sold because it is very ripe or mis-shapen, but it is brilliant for preserving as jams, chutneys and other products. We combine this surplus produce with a dash of local ingenuity and culture and create a truly unique preserve range. Recipes are designed around seasonality, local cultures and flavour and are a community collaboration.We strongly believe in sustainable food systems and that we should make the best of what we have.”
Wur Bradford is an art and social space exploring how we can make our city better through creativity and collective action. The project is supported by Bradford Council, Bradford Markets and Two28
