Cultures in Culture puts two chefs in dialogue about the fermentation process and its cultural significance in their respective culinary traditions. In this interactive program, you'll learn the history and true science behind fermentation through demonstration, preparation, and conversation.
Tune in for this second session on fermented vegetables to learn how the ancient process is practiced and enjoyed in Korean and Haitian cultures. Olga Sorzano of Baba's Brew will share her extensive knowledge on the science of fermentation as chefs Clara Park and Chris Paul show us how to make kimchi and pikliz— two spicy, fermented vegetable mixes from opposite sides of the globe. Guided by the chefs, participants will learn some basic knifework, layer flavors, and prepare their jars to bring home to enjoy once fermented.
