Fermentation Workshop

The Brinery
David Klingenberger

Get ready to master the art of fermentation – we’ve fallen in love with Ann Arbor’s Brinery who specializes in living, raw, and unpasteurized fermented foods.

Founded in 2010 with a small batch of fresh cabbage from Tantré Farm in Chelsea, The Brinery  is led by Chief Fermentation Officer, David Klingenberger, who is coming straight to frame to lead this 2-hour workshop. We will be introduced to the fundamentals of fermentation, get to know the history and cultural significance of preserving healthy and wholesome produce and  hands-on make sauerkraut … which we will then take home to ferment.

Ask all the burning questions you have on this ancient art of food preservation – while given the chance. And let’s learn something good together … by recalling our ancestors who used fermentation to preserve food out of necessity.

Brinery products and snacks for munching while we work.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
