Join us for an evening of fermentation as we take a closer look at the processes and production of fermented products and their benefits. Before the screening of Edward Lee’s fascinating documentary audiences are invited to join us at the Sidwell Street Bakehouse for a bread shaping workshop. The screening will be followed by a delicious cheese tasting session where we will enjoy a selection of cheeses supplied by Magdalen Cheese & Provisions alongside freshly baked bread from the Sidwell Street Bakehouse. Spaces for the film, workshop and cheese tasting must be booked separately. Please select your tickets carefully to avoid missing out. Spaces on the workshop and tasting are limited.
Look deeper, get dirty, and find the beauty in rot.
The culinary world has labelled fermentation as the hottest food trend at the moment. In this feature-length documentary FERMENTED, author and chef Edward Lee goes on a journey to understand how the ancient process of fermentation is used in modern cuisine both at home and abroad.
By exploring the process of making cheese, bread, beer, and charcuterie we find out how flavour has fed the rise in a contemporary trend, which is keeping the tradition of fermentation alive. Through profiles of kimchi, kombucha, and pickles we begin to understand that it isn’t just the process, but the results that keep us wanting more.
ABOUT FOOD ON FILM:
Discover a world of food on film with a compilation of documentaries, features and shorts from around the world, scheduled across four seasons.
From spring 2022 to winter 2023 each season will explore food from a different social, cultural or political angle, to discover how it shapes the world around us – our identities, livelihoods and planet. Screenings will be accompanied by talks, workshops and events hosted by food researchers and producers, and there will be plenty of opportunities to get hands on with making and tasting.
Food on Film is delivered in partnership with the University of Exeter’s Food Network and the MA Food Studies.
