The Abundant Kitchen - An Evening with Yotam and Niva Kay

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Waitemata Waste Away are delighted to be hosting an evening with Yotam and Niva Kay - the best selling authors of The Abundant Garden and now their new book, The Abundant Kitchen.

Niva and Yotam will share their wealth of knowledge and experience in making ferments, pickles, preserves, sourdough, koji, cured meat, ginger beer, yoghurt, vinegar and kombucha.

Using these recipes is the perfect way to preserve and transform an abundance of food, so it is eaten not wasted. 

On that, we are partnering with Love Food Hate Waste expert, Amanda Hookham-Kraft who will educate us about the scale of food waste in NZ and also create delicious snacks for us from food that would normally have been wasted. 

Whether you are a seasoned fermenter or taking your first steps into the world of live cultures, The Abundant Kitchen, with its helpful tips, step-by-step instructions and timeless techniques is an excellent guide. 

We are holding our event at Wai Orea CRC, Waitemata’s newly opened Recycling Centre so it is a chance also to have a look around at our new venue.

If you can’t make our event but want to buy the book here’s how to support Niva and Yotam and order the book directly from them.

Doors open at 6.00 pm for a 6.30 presentation
