2014 Boston

Fermentation Festival

Our second annual Fermentation Festival was a tour de fermentation! Like always, it was a completely free festival headlined by one of the world's most renowned fermentation revivalists, Sandor Katz. On hand were dozens of speakers, demos, small fermenting businesses, and authors. See the full listing of all activities to the right.


We also had a competitive & tasty Iron-Chef-style pickle-off with some of Boston's most creative chefs and professional picklers, in addition to more advanced workshops for the experts and a kraut mob for those interested in learning the basics of fermentation. 


Over 2000 people enjoyed the festival and there were all levels of fermenters present from enthusiasts & lactic acid aficionados. There was excellent media coverage from various local & national news sources.
