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.

FERMENT CITY

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.

Fur-Menting Fundamentals: Local experts discuss fermented foods for pets

"Even Chamberlain’s chickens get gut-healthy foods, including fermented and fresh vegetable scraps and even fermented locally grown, organic corn. “We knew about feeding the chickens ferments from our time homesteading, but we only recently started feeding it to our home pets within the last three years,” says Chamberlain."-Gina Smith, Mountain XPress January 17th, 2020

Honorable Mention for "Best Pickled/Fermented Things", 2019 Asheville Food Fan Awards

  "Fermenti-So many of the delicious fermented things we enjoy in this town are created by Meg Chamberlain at Fermenti. From what I understand, fermenting requires a license and is subject to other regulations that make it difficult for most restaurants to do it on the premises. Thanks to Fermenti, they don't have to! Mad respect for Meg, who found a niche and filled it with funky fermented things! - Stu Helm

" 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. Nothing beats the flavor of real living foods, and nothing heals the gut better either. Keep up the good work!"-Customer
