The River Cottage Cooking Diploma
Collection of 12 courses
River Cottage's Rachel de Thample teaches you how to use fermenting to create your own fermented food and drink.
Fermenting is one of the most ancient and most widely used food and drink preparation techniques. If you love the tangy, savoury tang of sauerkraut, flavours of fermented veg, the delicate fizz of kombucha, the invigorating kick of kimchi, the delicate fizz of kombucha or the soothing calm of kefir, this is the course for you.
Fermentation is a transformative process that makes food not only more nutritious but also more delicious. By eating natural, whole and live foods, we can boost the profile of our healthy gut bacteria.
During this course you will be taken on a culinary adventure into the many realms of fermenting, exploring an array of krauts, kombuchas and lacto-fermented delicacies. By the end of the journey you will have your shelves lined with happy bubbling ferments and your fridge stocked with irresistible, meal-enhancing delights.
Rachel will share skills and secrets gleaned from many years experimenting in her own kitchen and at River Cottage, enhanced by the inspiration and creativity of a host of fellow fermenters.
You’ll learn all you need to know to get started, master the basics and branch out creatively into new avenues.
This course has been approved by the Independent Cookery Schools Association (ICSA), recognising the highest standards of training.
Every student is different but in general we think the whole course will take around 15 hours 20 minutes to complete including:
Your lesson notes will include the full details of the ingredients you'll need, but you will be making fermented food and drinks, so you'll need standard kitchen equipment.
