As fermented foods and their benefits become increasingly popular in North America, New York City is hosting its first Fermentation Festival at the end of this month.
The festival will feature a range of food and beverage products, as well as services that inform visitors about the processes, flavors and ingredients behind fermentation. It will feature vendors from local businesses in the city that will offer their foods and beverages for visitors to try. The Fermentation Festival will also feature a homebrewing competition, seminars with "home fermentation tips" and plenty of samples that range from ciders to kombucha teas, that people of all ages can consume.
The NYC Fermentation Festival is a unique experiential event that takes advantage of the rising popularity (in North America) of foods that fit into this category.
