COOKING CLASS: Brewing Kombucha by Rebekka Hutton (3)

January 22, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

- $60

Kombucha, a tea-based, naturally fermented beverage, is the product of a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast (aka SCOBY), and is considered by some to be an ‘elixir of life’. The fermentation process creates beneficial nutrients, enzymes and acids that improve digestion, increase energy and boost immunity. Join master fermenter Rebekka Hutton for an informative and delicious evening delving into the secrets of this healthy and delicious beverage.

Making your own Kombucha is fun and rewarding, and it gives you total control over the ingredients; it is also much cheaper than buying it from the health food store and you can be more confident in the therapeutic properties of your own brew.

During the workshop there will be an opportunity to do a comparative taste-testing of 3 different tea bases — organic green tea, jasmine tea and a non-caffeinated chamomile & nettle blend — as well as several different flavours of finished kombucha. There will be a full brewing demonstration, and plenty of opportunity to discuss the finer points of home fermenting and the health benefits of kombucha.

Participants will leave with detailed instructions and recipes to brew their own kombucha, as well as their choice of tea and enough live starter to grow their own SCOBY at home.

$60 +HST
