Kraut it up! Learn to Ferment your Favorite Garden Greens!

I hear time and time again that many urban farmers get bitten by the urban farmin' bug because of their love and passion for FOOD! Learning how to cook and celebrate home-grown food is an important part of the local food movement. 'Food Crafting' is the process of adding value to your harvest through transforming it from it's raw, fresh form into a jam, bake, pickle, sautee, ferment, or roasted delight. 'Food Crafting' is delicious and creative! For our May edition of the urban ag workshop series...Graze the Roof brings YOU an exploration into 'Food Crafting!'

JOIN Culinary Artist Samantha Hanan on May 6th from 1p-3p for a special urban agriculture workshop on FERMENTATION!

Samantha will teach the basics of fermentation, share her passion for pickled foods and sample homemade seasonal sauerkraut. She will walk workshop participants through making sauerkraut, and each participant will go home with a pint of delicious sauerkraut.

Samantha was born and raised in New York, the daughter of a butcher she developed a passion early on for all things food. Growing up visiting and eating at all types of restaurants, from classic NY deli to some of the cities finest restaurants Samantha knew from early on that she wanted to spend her time making and serving food. Samantha moved to Southern California to finish college and there discovered the world of Healthy, Organic, Sustainable and of course Farm Fresh Food. She quickly began preserving and canning food and about two years ago went back to her heritage with fermenting using her Grandfather’s recipes. Although only an amateur in fermenting, Samantha is an advocate and lover of fermenting foods and beverages and is honored to share her technique with anyone with desire to learn. Samantha now resides in Bodega Bay.
