Work­shop pro­vides food for thought

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

A fer­men­ta­tion work­shop took place in Coupar An­gus re­cently as part of Scot­land’s an­nual re­use event, Pass It On Week, which ran un­til Sun­day, March 19.

Pass It On Week is billed by or­gan­is­ers as a great op­por­tu­nity to swap, share, do­nate, buy, sell or re­pair any type of used item from clothes to bikes, books to sports kit, and gad­gets to tools.

And the fer­men­ta­tion work­shop, which was a col­lab­o­ra­tive project or­gan­ised by For­ward Coupar An­gus, Coupar An­gus Food Fo­cus and Slow Food Tay­side and North Fife, aimed to high­light the po­ten­tial for veg­eta­bles to be used rather than thrown away.

Work­shop leader Claire Briegel demon­strated how to make fer­mented food that would last for at least a year out of small quan­ti­ties of veg­eta­bles.
