Probiotic Foods – full course on our Academy

What a journey it has been!

In 2013 Edible Alchemy was born and since then has journeyed far and wide to collect the data, the material, the bacteria, yeasts, molds and information to bring to you today.

Through trial and error, experimentation, research and practice, Edible Alchemy has picked through the chaff and brought in the gold and relay it to workshop participants, Michelin star chefs, nutritionists, health gurus and now to all the other curious alchemists out there like you.

Edible Alchemy has selected the best information to  finally expanded its workshops from offline to online to reach the wider world community.

It is exciting to introduce the full course load of our Probiotic Foods online course where you can go from vegetable fermentation and learn three different techniques to apply to literally every vegetable you have lying around the house or garden.

Including Brussel sprouts. Including your hot chili peppers and even including your cabbage cores – things you would other considering throwing away – and put life back in to them!

In this full course we go over fruit fermentation and learn how to make various types of vinegars. Pineapple. Apple. Pear. Persimmon. Even parsley-onion-skin vinegar. Or go wild and make tomato-beet vinegar!

In the full course we learn how to ferment grains, nuts, seeds and beans in the form of sourdough bread, vegan cheese, probiotic hummus and more.

If you have interests in working with some microbial ‘pets’ – we have three separate units all about SCOBYs – including kombucha, water kefir & and milk kefir.

It’s time to make more then the usual product. Milk kefir cheeses, coffee kombucha, sparkling water kefir sodas of every flavor imaginable….

If your immune system is needing a boost, winter time or not, check out our immune boosting unit where we have probiotic foods composed in just this right way to fight off bad bacteria that might be compromising our immune systems and chock us full of the good ones to strengthen us even more.

Alexis is a warm-hearted person, awesome teacher and a true expert on all questions one might have regarding fermentation. These courses provided me all the information I needed to get started at home on my own. During the online course she responded to my questions always prompt and very kind. I am now happy to have a fridge filled up with fermented veggies, probiotic hot sauces, milk kefir, Kombucha, water kefir and home brewed ginger beer! I highly recommend Alexis as a teacher on Fermentation. But be careful, you might need a larger fridge, soon...
