Lacto Fermented Sodas

Making Probiotic Sodas at home is easier than you think and fun to do. Creating effervescence naturally feels satisfying and fun, especially when you can control the intensity of the flavor and the amount of sugar in your home-made drinks. We will make 3 kinds of sodas: root beer, ginger ale, hibiscus and lemon verbena lacto-fermented sodas. We will discuss various bacteria and their role in creating texture, troubleshoot pitfalls, and how season may effect your sodas at home.

Class will be led by Tressa Yellig, founder of Wildheart Solutions. Tressa is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York, the Yerba Buena School of Herbal Medicine, and a member of the Functional Nutrition Alliance. She specializes in a variety of health supportive cooking styles, but mostly advocates a nutritional philosophy of traditional fats, sprouted grains, pastured meats, raw dairy and fermented foods.

Women's Health Series

Cookshop is very excited to bring you our Women's Health Series with naturopathic doctor Amanda Roe! This talk will focus on pelvic floor basics. The goal of the evening is to educate women about the inner-workings of pelvic floor structure, how/when/why we see changes in our pelvic floor, and how endurance sports impact the pelvic floor and vice versa. Amanda hopes to have an engaged conversation with attendees, not to lecture. 

About Amanda:

Amanda Roe is a naturopathic doctor based in Portland, Oregon. Her work jam is women’s endocrine regulation, particularly as it pertains to trail-running & endurance medicine. Amanda believes in the healing power of nature and thus gives every patient a "Nature Rx" as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Outside work, she hits the trails before sunrise, stays warm in a rainbow terry cloth track suit, and is raising 2 half-Kiwi kids with her Kiwi husband. 

Space is limited to 15 attendees. Women only, please.
Purchase your $20 ticket today! (link below)
A portion of each ticket sale will be donated to PDX Alliance for Self-Care (https://www.pdxasc.org/).

Ticket price includes your first drink and some light nibbles. 

This event is in collaboration with the Wy'east Sisterhood and will be lead by Amanda Roe, ND of Nature Intervenes
