More Info

The Fermentarium began its adventure in fermentation in 2014 at the Blackhorse Workshop, Walthamstow, London. At first the emphasis was on baking sourdough bread and pizza-making in a cob oven in the yard as well as sourdough bread-making classes.

In 2014 Simon and David wanted to share their experience and knowledge of fermenting and began to run lactic fermentation classes and then were joined by Anna in March 2016 and added further courses including Soft fermented drinks and dairy ferments.

The Fermentarium: an independent organisation dedicated to promoting the small-scale production of “real” fermented food and drink.
