The Event

"Tonics and teas have long been hailed as remedies for all manner of ailments and illnesses, and for their amazing health benefits. In this session you’ll learn to make drinks to fight colds, balance your gut flora, boost your immune system, and feel ready to take on the world."

Rachel de Thample, Made In Hackney Ambassador, Author and Chef

This Masterclass is part of our 'VIP Series' delivered by chefs who are renowned in their field. The class will include:

  • Exploring tea blends to suit your mood and energy needs.
  • Learning how to brew gut-friendly kombucha (and get a kombucha scoby to take home for future brews).
  • Mastering the art of making water and plant milk-based kefirs, with quirky seasonal and local twists like rhubarb and rose water kefir and almond kefir with nutmeg and fig.
  • Brewing plant based rye and beetroot kvass with fun variations such as apricot and star anise rye kvass, and cardamom ginger beetroot kvass.
  • Mixing up virgin, good-for-you cocktails that’ll win the chatter of any drinks party.
  • Exclusive recipes from my new book ‘Tonics & Teas’ to take home.
  • A delicious organic plant based lunch.
