Get Cultured Potluck and Book Party! // Eugene, OR
October 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come get cultured with the funkiest, most flavorful bus on the planet at Heart and Spoon Community House! We will celebrate the release of Tara’s book, Fermentation on Wheels, with good food, community-lovin’, and some sweet book sections read aloud. You can buy a book at this event, too!
About the potluck: bring some of your own fermented dishes or cultures (kombucha SCOBYs, sourdough starter, kefir grains, yogurt, etc.) to share and swap with other fermenters. This potluck is open to everyone from interested beginners to expert fermenters. We also encourage complementary non-fermented dishes!
You are also invited onto the bus for tours, tastings, and fermentation talk. Bring starter cultures of your own for exchange and discussion. All Fermentation on Wheels events are free and open to the public, however, if you would like to take home a culture, we ask you please bring something to swap* or $10 per culture.
Fermentation on Wheels is a grassroots project that brings fermentation education to communities of all ages and backgrounds and inspires with a school bus that has been converted into a fermentation lab, library, and workshop space. The project’s founder, Tara Whitsitt, organizes events nationwide to bridge communities and restore a genuine fascination in local, traditionally-preserved foods. By traveling the country, connecting consumers to local farmers, and teaching fermentation, she hopes to emphasize the importance of strong, sustainable food practices and values.

*The swappable doesn’t need to be a starter culture!
