Community Kimchi Class with Virginia O’Gara

POSTPONED FOR A LATER DATE 

Friday 13th March, 7 – 8.30pm

Tickets €25

This class will offer you quite literally the chance to get stuck in and make your very own kimchi and kraut! You will not only get to take this home with you, allowing you time to watch over as your ferment develops; but you will also walk away with a world of wisdom as Virginia O’Gara, founder of My Goodness, takes you through the wonderful world of fermentation, tips and tricks, do’s and don’ts to take on kraut making at home.  

Virginia O’Gara moved to Cork from Austin, Texas in 2006 to study Permaculture Design at Kinsale Further Education College. She soon developed a deep love for Ireland, consistent rainfall, cabbages, and root vegetables. That love ran so deep that she created a business around these valuable resources, and has spent the last six years finding new ways and old, to sustainably grow, prepare, and preserve food and drinks.

My Goodness is a vegan sustainable food company based in The English Market, that specialises in probiotic kombucha and kefir, made from rainwater, sauerkrauts and kimchi made using vegetables grown that can be grown in Ireland, and is working with local farmers to explore growing new varieties of vegetables for krauts.

Come join Virginia for an interactive evening of community kimchi making. Be prepared to get your hands dirty as we learn to kraut together. This kimchi workshop will touch on the health benefits of including probiotics in the diet, show best practice when making fermented foods, and you’ll leave with your very own jar of kimchi that we make on the night, and a recipe.

Limited seats available so book online here on Eventbrite and learn all there is to know to get yourself started on the road to fermentation.  Your gut will thank you for it!
