At the end of this month we’re going to be heading to Auckland’s fermentation festival Ferment! on March the 23rd and 24th at The Cloud. You all know how much we LOVE fermented food, so we are unbelievably excited to be heading to a festival dedicated to all things fermented.
No fermented food looks alike, so we thought we’d give a shout out to some of the fermenters we’re most excited to visit at the show.
One thing we love about heading to shows like Ferment! is that it gives us the opportunity to meet Kiwi’s who love to pioneer new flavours in the New Zealand market. Zenkuro is doing just that by being our first and only Sake brewing company - very exciting for those of us who enjoy a good tipple.
#2. Beer Jerk
Speaking of a good tipple - Beer Jerk are like a book club, but for beers! If you love trying new things and supporting Kiwi (and hate leaving the house) then their subscription box might be perfect for you. We really love the idea behind this, so we definitely can’t wait to head to their stall for a tasting.
#3. Grown Up Donuts
Listen, the fact that donuts are classed as a fermented food is GREAT news for us - because it means we get to enjoy a heavenly filled pastry (or 5) while we’re at Ferment! If you’re wondering how a donut could be fermented, then you might be forgetting about yeast-raised baked goods. If you’re still confused, then head to Grown Up Donuts stall and ask them to clear it up for you.
You already know we love L’Authentique’s cured meats - we even gave away some of their delicious pate’s last year. We can’t wait to have another taste of their products at the show as well.
Ok we clearly have a thing for subscription boxes, because we can’t WAIT to see The Chocolate Bar at Ferment! Chocolate delivered straight to your door? Sign us up immediately!
