Discover a fermentation fiesta with a local twist
Churned, pickled, proven and matured: all things fermented, from cheese and sourdough to beer and wine, will be on offer at Oxford Street’s Bitter Phew Bar this Sydney Solstice. Through a series of workshops, lunches, dinners and meet-the-makers sessions, Sydneysiders can discover the massive flavours that result from microorganisms. There will be a particular spotlight on the distinctive qualities of native ingredients, showcasing the innovative and surprising ways homegrown produce can be used. Sharing the tricks of their trade will be Gabriel Gutnik of Ziggy’s Wild Foods, while lunch and dinner sessions will be hosted by Caitlin Koether of Wild Provisions.
While you’re here: Stick to the shop-local spirit and pay a visit to the trailblazing multi-business “cultural hub” They’re There, just across the street from Bitter Phew. Peruse second-hand records, get a trendy new haircut, or shop for preloved vintage threads, all while listening to local DJs, poets, bands and fringe artists on They’re There’s very own stage.
