Austin Fermentation Festival

Austin Fermentation Festival
Monday, Nov 1, 2021 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Join us this October for the 8th annual Austin Fermentation Festival hosted by Texas Farmers’ Market! The Austin Fermentation Festival is a FREE educational online event that celebrates all things fermented in Central Texas and this year we are bringing it back in a modified form.

In order to plan for a festive and safe event, we are mixing things up a bit and it will be different from its original format and spread across five fun-filled Monday nights on Zoom in October, each with a fermentation-focused workshop presented by a local leader in the industry from 7-8:30pm.

Workshop #5 - Living Vinegar Production & Its Applications Within Restaurants & Agriculture

By Alfred Francese of Emmer & Rye

At Emmer and Rye they produce all their vinegar for cooking in the restaurant. They use a combination of enzymes, yeast and bacteria to create their product. They never pasteurize during the process which ends up creating unique flavor profiles based on the base ingredients they use, and the climate during each season. This vinegar is packed with flavor but also contains probiotics, and b vitamins. During Alfred’s workshop he will discuss how he produces vinegar, what inspires him to choose which ingredients he uses and different cooking applications. We will also be hearing from one of the producers they partner with, Westfold Farms, and how they incorporate Emmer & Rye’s vinegar into their chickens’ diets.
