Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]

  Photography by my lovely friend Virginia Woods-Jack I get mighty excited about making bread. It is my favourite fermented food and I never tire of watching the dough rise slowly throughout the day or the smell it creates during baking. I love how unique each loaf is when it is finished baking and pulled from the oven. Over the past couple of years I have slowly saved up and purchased a few bread-making tools […]

Not long after having Ira 6 months ago I was fortunate enough to be given a beautiful meal […]

Image © Victoria Vincent Photography Ginger beer is one of the easiest and low maintenance naturally fermented drinks and, in my opinion, rather fun to make (science geek right here). The flavour is intensely beautiful to boot! I prefer to make my own because I can reduce the sugar content while maintaining that great flavour. But my favourite part is being able to add different combinations of fruits, herbs and spices to the mix when it […]

This recipe for kimchi has been a long-awaited blog post and by far the most requested I have had to date. This will be my last post for the year so I can enjoy some uninterrupted down time with my family and our friends. I am also excited to work on some recipes and other projects over the next few weeks that I will share in the new year. I will post the odd photo on […]
