From Seaweeds to Cultured Foods ... we've had a busy week at Grassroots Nutrition
Having learned what there is to learn about cooking with Seaweed from the wonderful Prannie Rhatigan at www.irishseaweedkitchen.ie last Saturday, Grassroots Nutrition was delighted to be at the launch of the equally wonderful Dervla Reynold's epic cookbook "The Cultured Club" on fermented foods.
Fermented foods are essential for good gut health. Fermentation increases healthy bacteria in the food which, when eaten daily, will feed your beneficial gut bacteria and strengthen your immune system this winter.
The Cultured Club is a treasure trove of mountains of delicious recipes on fermenting foods. If you are like me, you will be scared of trying your hand at fermented foods. However, do not despair, it is actually difficult to fail and easy to succeed in this fermentation-business.
Dervla has a wealth of the most delicious, easy-to-prepare ferments in her new cookbook. I urge you to visit her website www.theculturedclub.com and buy her cookbook (published by Gill and available in all good book shops).
Note: you can start most fements from scratch, but if this a step too far for you, simply visit her website and buy kefir grains and ferments there: http://theculturedclub.com/project/fabulously-funky-ferments/
