Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting green or black tea and sugar with the kombucha culture. The result can taste like something between sparkling apple cider and champagne, depending on what kind of tea you use. It's not what you'd imagine fermented tea to taste like. You can buy Kombucha at the health food stores, but usually it's about 4 dollars or so for a tiny bottle. Home brewing is easy and very economical. Why not learn how to make it?
Subjects to be covered:
Kombucha tea, fermentation and special teas and combinations.
Class will be taught by Gourmet Vegan Chef Patricia Ganswind. Class goes for 1.5 hrs.
Patricia is heading off to of New Zealand this summer, so after that I will be taking over teaching this class.
Cost: $30 including a Kombucha mushroom to take home for your own brewing and cultivation plus a couple special tea samples to add to your first batch at home.
Workshop will take place at Genny's house (just off Commercial Drive, in East Vancouver). Please RSVP for full details. firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-378-2201
