ATHOL — The Athol Public Library will host “Cooking with Cristina Garcia: Lacto-Fermentation” Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 6 p.m. in the program room.

This is a great time to try out lacto-fermented vegetables, according to a press release. It’s a safe and nutritious way to put up your garden’s bounty. Lacto-fermented foods are full of beneficial bacteria, and require no special equipment to prepare. Join them to make and sample sauerkraut, cortido, beet kvass and pickles. You’ll leave with methods and ratios to get you fermenting at home.

Led by Cristina Garcia of the Farm School

Garcia said she has been trading recipes, sharing stories, and supporting connection through cooking and shared meals for as long as she can remember. She spent 13 years cooking with youth and leading the nourishment team at The Farm School in Athol, and loves any chance to cook in community.
