fermentation workshop


We do monthly fermentation workshops in Wellington and we love it. It’s such a great way of bringing people from different backgrounds together, all united by a common force: their love for fermentation. 2020 was an incredible year for us, and this one will be even better! There will be some cool collaborations with other brands and we are also teaming up with 2 of our favourites: Food Envy and Wellington Apothecary. We will be using their amazing spaces to do our workshops and we couldn’t be more excited.

Our classes

Inma is our teacher and the brain behind Best Kept Health. She has a background in Nutrition and Health coaching and a lot of years experience as a fermenter. She brings incredible knowledge and passion to the classes and her energy is contagious. Our workshops are a mixture of gut health teaching and fermentation. They are fun, informative, interactive and always hands-on, we think the best way to learn is to get your hands dirty! We have the usual suspects in the schedule: fermented vegetables / kraut and water kefir / natural soda workshops. By popular demand, we are also adding a new class to the list this year: kimchi and pickles.
