Returning by popular demand is the MidCoast Libraries series of Sourdough Workshops and a Beetroot Kvass and Sauerkraut making workshop.

The three-part free sourdough workshops, which focus on good gut health, will be held from next week via Zoom.

Workshop #1 will be presented by Lydia Irving from Internal Instinct, who will lead the workshops with lessons on how to make sourdough from scratch and how to keep it alive on Wednesday, November 18 from 6pm.

The following Wednesday, November 25 from 6pm Lydia will lead you through the kneading and theory of the fermentation process and finally on Thursday, November 26, 6pm the baking process.

Find out all the benefits of sourdough for good gut health.

Beetroot and cabbages are two very easy vegetables to grow yourself - but what do you do with large harvests?

We're proud to again be partnering with Lydia to deliver these workshops and helping to encourage healthier, but delicious, habits in the home.

Join Lydia on Thursday, November 19 at 6pm for a workshop on how to make a natural probiotic - beetroot kvass.

In the same workshop, Lydia will also take you on a sauerkraut-making journey.

Sauerkraut is the perfect condiment to add thrilling flavours.

You can make Sauerkraut as simple or complex as your culinary skills extend.

The base ingredients are just cabbage and salt.

"We're proud to again be partnering with Lydia to deliver these workshops and helping to encourage healthier, but delicious, habits in the home," libraries manager, Chris Jones said.

Demand is high for places in these workshops and bookings are essential so get in quick.
