How to Use Get Cultured! Tips for getting the most out of the lessons.
Here’s some quick and easy tips to help you get the most out of Get Cultured! the online cooking class that will teach you how to ferment anything.
1. Read the full lesson.
Each lesson includes details on what we’re making and why we’re making it. So if you want to know exactly how kefir is made, why sauerkraut nourishes or why naturally fermented soy is actually good for you in moderation, read the full lesson. You’ll learn exactly how these naturally fermented foods nourish your body and glean a few tips on making them in your kitchen.
2. Watch the videos.
The videos and downloadable materials are located about half-way down the screen. Watch the videos as many times as you need and as often as you like; after all, you have complete and full lifetime access to these materials. Each video is usually between five and ten minutes long and will provide you details on what you need to prepare the dish, step-by-step instructions as well as a quick outline covering how and why the dish nourishes. So whether it’s straining kefir or learning how to make fresh whey, you’ll learn it.
3. Get the downloads.
Many participants of Nourished Kitchen’s online cooking classes keep a three-ring binder they use to print and store the materials for each individual installment. Other participants create a dedicated folder on their desktop into which they download and save all of the course’s materials. We have provided you with two ways to use the downloadable materials:
1. Download the materials all at once. Many people like to download all the print materials in one file. On each lesson you’ll see a Master Download. This PDF document contains all of the recipes, tutorials and fact sheets used in the lesson.
2. Download the materials individually. Some participants prefer to download the recipes, tutorials and fact sheets individually – printing only what they need at the time. You can find the individual downloads listed separately under recipes, tutorials and fact sheets.
4. Review the materials and make the dishes.
Review the materials thoroughly before making the dishes. Then try the dishes in your kitchen. Most ferments are very easy to prepare requiring only one or two steps.
