Shone Farm opens its doors to serve the first ever Fermentation Feast. A gourmet menu of all fermented foods, each dish is created by a different local chef and paired with one of Sonoma County’s wines, water kefirs, or kombucha. Open to 120 guests, the dinner features six courses, from hors d’oeuvres to desserts. Inspired by the flavors of many cultures, the epic culinary tour ranges from Italian and Middle Eastern to Japanese and Korean. The evening ends with a special birthday cake for Sandor Katz, rock star of the fermentation world, whose lectures will highlight both days of the festival. As the role of fermented foods takes center stage in the health world, the dinner celebrates the taste, vitality and diversity of fermentation.
Separate serving sections will be set up, so guests can speak with each contributing chef, and learn about both the dish preparation, and the magic of fermentation as it infuses the cooking process. As they explore and savor their dinner, guests will also enjoy the chance to speak with the symposium panel in a more casual setting.
