2/02 Welcome Vegetable fermentation 101: Making Giardiniera
“Ellie Markovitch, lecturer in the Department of Communication and Journalism, has received an MHC grant related to her ongoing “Fermentation Fridays” project, which takes place in the UMaine Food Lab and involves developing recipes, facilitating cooking and storytelling workshops, and producing short videos. The Fermentation Fridays project engages with the local community, creating opportunities for skill sharing, the use of local food, and food rescue. At the core of Markovitch’s work is an exploration of the aesthetic of the quotidian and hospitality as art and community building.”
