“At Esalen, we're blessed to be situated in a culinary paradise,” writes Esalen chef Phillip Burrus. “Our on-site farm and garden produces a bounty of fruits and vegetables year round, and our local community is thick with culinary treasures in every season.”
In this course, we'll explore a broad range of techniques — from the ancient to the modern — for making the most of local, seasonal produce. Participants will receive hands-on experience in the crafts of preserving, pickling, curing, sun drying, smoking, confit, wild fermentation, and more.
