Small bites: Ending food waste in WNC 2019

Since 2017, Food Waste Reduction and Recovery WNC has held quarterly meetings throughout the the state’s westernmost counties as part of its ongoing mission to unite, educate and support communities in ending food waste and food insecurity. On Saturday, Feb. 23, the group will continue its efforts with a gathering at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Services building in Marshall.



Fermenti jars living, probiotic-rich foods, including beets, carrots, pickles, krauts and lemons along with hot sauces and minced garlic. Chamberlain’s mission is to educate folks on the health benefits of fermented foods, maintaining a full workshop and educational outreach schedule, including regular appearances at six area farmers markets. “I think the fermentation community is just starting to, well, ‘ferment,'” she says. “What started with beer and cider is blooming into charcuterie, kimchi, sauerkrauts, cheeses, tempeh/hempeh, shrubs, vinegars, sourdoughs, teas, chocolates and more.”

Instead of calling Asheville Beer City, she muses,  “Why not Ferment City? I think we have a lot of incredible makers learning their craft now. Our fermented future is bright here in the mountains.”


Beer City: These Women Are at the Forefront of Asheville’s Explosive Fermentation Industry

Nicknamed Beer City, Asheville is home to more than 30 breweries, as well as an urban winery and several cideries. However, fermentation goes far beyond alcohol in this city.

" Fermenti. has the most amazing array of fermented foods I've ever seen! Locally grown fresh ingredients, original homemade recipes, and lots of love yield an end product that is as delicious as it is good for you! Meg puts her heart and soul into her work and you can taste the difference. I will never buy pasteurized or generic store bought kraut, pickles, or fermented veggies ever again.
