Instructor: Andrew Cobb has been teaching fermentation in the Houston area for a few years. He focuses on Wild Yeast/Bacteria Fermentation as taught by Sandor Katz. His classes are engaging, passionate, informative and eye opening. For him, teaching fermentation in the city is a chance to celebrate and appreciate the wisdom of folks who live off the land and understand that their knowledge is as valuable as what is taught in universities.
