** POSTPONED ** #FeedingBerlin 5 – How to be a Climavore
March 17 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Due to the latest developments of the coronavirus situation, we have decided to postpone this event.
We are very sorry for this change of plans, but we also think that it makes the most sense to help contain the spread of the virus and be able to fully enjoy the hands-on event we prepared at a later date.
We don’t have a new date yet, as we are waiting, for now, to see how the situation evolves. We will keep you updated!!
We wish you a nice evening and look forward to seeing you (hopefully) soon !!
Your GB Team
As consumers, we make choices every day about the type of food we eat and as such, about the type of food system we support.
Our current food system is not sustainable. Food production makes up somewhere between 20 to 30 % of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and this number is getting higher every year.
You have probably heard by now that we should “eat less meat, eat local, seasonal, organic”. Beyond the vegan steak from your local bio shop, there are other ways of rethinking our diets. From age-old practices like fermentation and foraging of wild species to novel food made approachable, we will explore in this #FeedingBerlin event some other ways in which we can alter our diets in order to limit our impact on the environment.
The event will be a mix of discussions and hands-on “learning stations”. Come and join us for a taste of planet-friendly food!
Make sure to book your ticket now on Eventbrite — space is limited.
Special thanks to Edible Alchemy for hosting us!!
Bacteria Barista / Founder of Edible Alchemy Alexis Goertz: Fermentation - enjoying the harvest all year round
Alexis Goertz, who is the founder of ‘Edible Alchemy’, knows how to turn food in to gold: the secret is called fermentation! In the time of disinfectants, antibiotics and canned food, we forgot about these perfectly probiotic cultures, passed on from generation to generation, the valuable vitamins and nutrients they hold and of course their amazing tastes! Alexis takes the scary concept of ‘bacteria, yeast and mold’ and makes the science behind these seemingly scary topics not only understandable, but fun and extremely delicious. Alexis has taken the ‘Art of Fermentation’ to different countries to explore the meaning of these traditional techniques, share her knowledge and trade bacterial cultures in order to share these unique tastes and practices with others wherever she goes.
About Edible Alchemy: In an antibacterial age, fermentation is quickly becoming a lost art. Edible Alchemy is here to reclaim it as an energy-efficient food preservation technique which has deep roots in our cultural histories. We are captivated and inspired by the way fermented foods engage our senses and enhance whole food eating. Edible Alchemy CoLaboratory is the umbrella of all of our active social platforms that empower members to share knowledge and feedback with us and one another. The aim: to promote healthy lifestyles, food skills and creative experimentation through fermentation and community sharing. We offer on and off-line workshops, talks, Bacteria Bars, special dinners, coaching and foraging tours.
About the talk: Be prepared to get up close and personal with good bacterias and yeasts. We will have our Microbial Circus Freaks on display to see, touch, smell and taste! Edible Alchemy will talk about how fermentation is really turning simple foods into GOLD and how eating regionale and seasonally is easy, delicious, very nutritious and CO2 neutral!
