Get your starter at the Mother Cultural Exchange in San Francisco

Wondering where to get a fermentation starter? On Saturday, February 20th, the folks at CRITTER are hosting a mini fermentation festival, with demonstrations on how to start and use cultures in your kitchen. There will be samples to snack on, presentations, and a culture trade, plus people will be on hand to give tips on making a better pickle. This is your chance to pick up a kombucha mother, sourdough starter, or whatever you’ve been hankering after. And if it isn’t on hand, I bet you could get the number of someone who can give you one the next time they have extra. If you’ve got a culture you’d like to trade, bring it with you or get in touch with the organizers. I’ll be there explaining how to make and eat kefir, and I should have some starter grains to give away.

There will also be demos on growing plants from cuttings and mushrooms from spores—the event embraces anything that grows from a starter.

These are the folks who brought us the kimchi contest last year, and I expect this event will be just as fun.

Here are the vitals:
