About this course

10am – 4pm on Saturday 31st August

We’ll start with a tasting session so you can tailor make to your tastes, chat about the benefits of fermentation, then we’ll make the 2 items together before finishing with a demonstration and a bit more tasting! You’ll take home what you make, plus any necessary starter cultures and an information / recipe handout.

You’ll learn how to make the items, with encouragement to experiment with flavours. How to maintain and troubleshoot any necessary starter cultures for future use at home, and a basic understanding of the process and health benefits of fermentation.

All food is suitable for vegans with the exception of the Sourdough.
Please bring with you:
2 x (approx) 1 litre jars for the fermented vegetables
2 x large non-metal bowls to take partly fermented bread home in

Age suitability 16+

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.


As a member, you’ll feel much more a part of our work, helping us to create a Dartington that is fit for the 21st century and is a model and test-bed for a sustainable society. You'll also get access to a wide range of great benefits, both on our estate and at partners across south Devon.
