The Edible Alchemy Academy: a self-paced approach
Our Academy is your online destination to the world of DIY fermenting. Whatever your fancy – vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, grains or dairy – each module is explained with videos, downloadable resources and easy to follow recipes. Welcome to the online world of wholseome microbiology.
Local Workshops in the vibrant BerlinOur workshops are interactive and informative. Through touch, taste, smell, sight and even sound you will be guided with hands-on methods through the microbial world of fermentation. Our large selection of workshops allows your understanding of fermentation to proliferate and grow. Check our calendar to see where a workshop is being held near you. Meet other alchemists who are a part of the Edible Alchemy community and ask Alexis, your Bacteria Barista, your fermentation questions. You will leave with a custom ferment made by your own hands with the supervision of Alexis. Whether it be a super-kraut, fizzy probiotic soda or vegan seed-cheese, you will have the starter and gain the core knowledge to continue the fermentation process at home.
