You can’t go wrong with gallons of live fermented cucumber dills and live music. Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment will deliver homemade kosher dills, half-sours, and new pickles plus funky, frenetic, horn-heavy Balkan and klezmer music to Viracocha on Valencia St. in San Francisco this Thursday, July 29. This is a band that joins fermented food and music and the price of admission is worth each of them alone. Find them on the youtube and watch at the video of them here. Then check out the show and be inspired to pickle some cucumbers of your own!

I’m joining other picklers, urban farmers, and foodies on April 3 in Oakland, California, for some fun at Ferment Change. Folks are bringing fermented food and drink, potluck style, and there will be music by Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment, a Balkan-klezmer-jazz band. Watch the video or read this review in the East Bay Express.

The show costs $10-30 and supports City Slicker Farms, an awesome group that helps develop gardens in the back yards and empty spaces of West Oakland, a part of the city that gets the short end of the stick when it comes to development, environmental hazards, and access to sources of good nutrition. Read about what they do in this Wall Street Journal article.

I’ll be bringing homemade natto. For more on that look at my article on making natto [update: now requires a subscription] in the magazine Craft.

If you want to bring something to the potluck, you can and you should! Find the info at the Ferment Change blog.
