Late summer is the height of preserving season in the Barossa and we want to take you on a little journey into our kitchens, share some of our favourite food skills and give a little snippet of what its like to live like a Barossan.

Seasonal eating is the key to cheaper and more nutritious eating, but how do you know what is in season, how to connect to it and what to do with it when you’ve found it?  Join us on this six week series as we show you where we source our produce and what we do with it to create a sustainable and seasonal pantry that gives all year round.

If you cant join us live as we chat via zoom, episodes will all be available as recordings to watch at any time that suits you.  Tickets can also be purchased at any time during the series and past episodes will be made available with recorded links.  Please note that the first episode will be broadcast via a Facebook live, with all subsequent episodes broadcast via Zoom.  You will receive an email after every episode with the recorded link.  FAQ about accessing zoom sessions and recordings are included below.

When you enroll in the course you will receive a welcome email with full details of session times and access details for each episode.

(please note:  parts of our workshop series will assume a working understanding of the Fowlers process.  If you are brand new to preserving and you would like to learn we recommend you complete our on-demand module first, ‘Introduction to Fowlers Vacola Preserving’)

How safe is Fowlers preserving?
This food skill is more than 100 years old, and modern science has given us the benefit of understanding exactly how safe it is.  Those Barossa Girls work within food safety guidelines set down by regulatory bodies, and we will not advocate or teach practices that are not proven.  Fowlers Vacola bottling is a proven and safe method that relies on very simple rules to eliminate the possibility of food spoilage or pathogens.  It is important that home preservers understand the importance of safe food practices, and we will teach you how to apply those simple rules to your preserving.
