This interdisciplinaryWorkshop aims to study the production of fermented products with bacterial cultures and yeasts.
The participants will deal with traditional methods, healthy and “forgotten” after the advent of industrial products for the production of goat cheese, bread, fermented beverages and other foods. These transformations, which can appear almost magic but are at the same time scientific, will offer food for thought for conversations about inner and social transformations.
The group will also be encouraged to experiment with the visual and sculptural possibilities of these processes. We will look at various vessels, baskets and fabrics traditionallyused. Thanks to the interaction between artistic-enogastronomic research, conviviality and local products, the workshop builds new forms of social exchange.
Piero will share his knowledge, at the same time, participants with experience in fermentation techniques will also be welcome to share theirs in the spirit of exchange.
Fomento Fermento is a project created and coordinated by Piero Passacantando.
Somewhere between art project and cooking workshop, FF is a knowledge and cultural exchange.
Participants are encouraged to bring their recipes, ideas and experiments to share with the group. FF seeks to be informal, hands-on and fun; yet it aims to be informative and to discuss the science and history of fermentation.
Through these workshops Piero hopes to encourage connections between people – to Foment the fermentation of love through magic, science, fun and exchange. All the activities are collected in zines. These small publications have themselves been a vehicle to foment ferment.
