Course Overview

Learn the benefits of eating your own home made vegetable pickles on your gut health, developing a microbiome for good digestion, raised immunity and clearer thinking.

Most traditional cultures have fermented local foods for preservation and for their health benefits – they provide lactobacilli, B vitamins and enzymes for a healthy digestive system, a natural home produced probiotic! Eating fermented foods regularly will help to keep your digestive system in good shape as well as boosting your immunity and contributing to overall good health.

“A brilliant course. Dejan was really helpful and inspiring”


These powerful and delicious fermented accompaniments to your diet are very simple to make – once you know how. In this class you will learn how you can make them yourself so you can take this knowledge into your own kitchen and create your own range of pickles (including brine, tamari and umeboshi), sauerkraut and Kim Chi any time you wish.

You’ll also learn the art of pasteurising foods naturally so if you ever want to cook in bulk, use up plentiful produce and stock up your cupboards you’ll know how you can make them last without the need for artificial or unnatural preservatives.

“It made the world of pickling and preserving accessible to a complete novice”
