Sprouting and Fermenting Seeds into Delicious, Living Vegan Cheeses and Hummus by Kitchen Sink Farming
The world’s best foods aren’t available in stores. You can’t get them from the home shopping network, either. It’s a good thing, too, because people would buy them and miss out on the particular satisfaction of eating something they grew themselves, acutely aware of the life force and vibrancy of every bite. They’re also super cheap and really easy to make, and once you try it’ll be laughable to pay someone else to do it. Anyone, anywhere, at any time, can be enjoying a bounty of fresh, living, incredibly nutritious food with very little work and expense.
Join Jean-Pierre Parent, owner of Portland’s SOMA Evolutionary Refreshment, yoga and meditation teacher, and author of the soon-to-be-released “Kitchen Sink Farming: How to Cheaply and Easily Grow, Sprout, and Ferment Your Own Food For a Healthier Now and a Greener Future” as he prepares living, probiotic, and home-grown recipes from his book. Samples limited to first 30 who sign up.
