Blenheim Artisan Series Features Fermented Foods

Posted: Updated:

It's an artisan series that combines wine with delicious eats, and its purpose is to explain how to make different foods. The Blenheim Artisan Series brings together different craftspeople that show the public how to create a particular food or beverage. This year, each event focuses on the "art and craft of fermentation."

Hosted at Blenheim Vinyards in Charlottesville, there will be eight events throughout the series -  all about different foods and beer. During each event there will be demonstrations, food and drink tastings, and a question and answer session.

Organizers say there are a wide variety of products that can be fermented, and fermentation makes them taste even better.

"Fermentation... of all the things that we eat and drink, at least in my opinion, fermentation makes the most delicious ones. Whether it's coffee, or chocolate, or wine, or beer, or sausage, sauerkraut - fermentation makes everything better." said Greg Hirson, organize of the Artisan Series.

The next event will focus on bread making, taught by the owner of Albemarle Baking Company. It takes place Thursday March 28 at 6 p.m.

The series kicked off on March 13 and will run through. The cost of each separate event - hosted every other Thursday - is $10. There is wine available for purchase to pair with the food being demonstrated.
