On July 10, the Menlo Park Main Library will host “Fermentation 101,” a sauerkraut-making demo and tasting led by “Zero-Waste Chef” Anne-Marie Bonneau at 12:30 pm.
Bonneau says that sauerkraut is one of the easiest fermented foods to make: “If you can chop vegetables, you can ferment vegetables.” Not only is sauerkraut easy to make, says Bonneau, it also saves money, consumes little to no energy, improves the nutrition and digestibility of the food, safely preserves the vegetables — and it tastes delicious.
“Zero-Waste Chef” Anne-Marie Bonneau says that concern over the planet’s plastic pollution problem led her to go plastic-free in 2011. These days when she shops for her groceries, she brings glass jars, stainless steel containers and homemade cloth bulk bags to fill. Bonneau chronicles her experiences and shares tips & recipes at her website.
No preregistration is necessary to attend this free event, which is funded by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. The event will take place at 12:30 pm on Sunday, July 10th at the Menlo Park Main Library, located at 800 Alma Street.
