Most of us are foodies…right? I love finding out how to make stuff and the science behind things I’m a geek, it’s what we like). When you are travelling for extended periods of time, you get to a point when you’re kind of ‘galleried’ out. For me food and fun are my first loves (followed closely by being over active…phew!), so going to cooking classes is a no-brainer. But, perhaps this is not the case for everyone. But I say, ‘give it a go’. The people are usually really fun, you get to eat good food and you learn something. I visited Oakland, California recently to take a fermenting class. My brain and my tum were well fed.
Oakland itself is worth a trip as it is so different from San Francisco. It’s kinda earthy, rootsy. Edgy. It has a big Southern & African influenced food community that is worth a look.
I’m splicing between my two blogs right-now. To read the rest of the FERMENTING story and get an essence of the ‘food obsessed’ me, then click here http://aveganobsession.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/lets-get-fermenting.html
