What is a Shrub If Not a Plant?

April 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


It’s also a delicious healthy drink that is a joy to make and drink with friends and family (or by yourself)! From the Arabic word sharãb, shrubs are easy and affordable to make. In this hands-on class, you will learn about the history and will taste a ginger/turmeric shrub that will have already had some days to ferment. You will also make your own shrub and receive recipes to take home.

Ana Brinson became interested in fermenting as a child. Her dad made sauerkraut which she loved to eat. She created a business in Costa Rica making and selling fermented vegetables, ginger beers and kombucha.  She loves to cook and invent and share her knowledge of healthy eating. She’s at her happiest when her kitchen is a science lab.
