Virginia O’Gara is founder and co-owner of My Goodness. Her vegan culinary history began 20 years ago in Dallas, U.S with Food Not Bombs, an organization that uses ‘waste’ food as a tool for social change. Virginia has a particular interest in using fermentation as a method of promoting health, utilizing local goods, and decreasing food waste through sustainable preservation. Virginia is excited to present this workshop at Dublin Vegfest which could change the way Irish folk feel about cabbage!
My Goodness creates a wide range of delicious raw living food products that are vegan, gluten and refined sugar free. These include probiotic rich Water Kefir made from fermented rainwater, Sauerkrauts, Sprouts, Raw Cakes, Salads, Fermented Salsas, Paté, Vinegars, and Vinaigrette.
Come celebrate all things sauer in this fermentation demo. Learn how to make a simple sauerkraut at home, and get your hands into a vegan version of the Korean classic kimchi. Sample some Cork rainwater kefir and raw vegan crackers made from fermented krauts. This demo will show how easy it is to make your own probiotic rich foods at home, and why it’s so important to have fermented foods in our daily diet.
