This event is in English.

Most people are used to eating mushrooms, but did you know that mycelium is edible as well? In fact, people have been eating mycelium for ages. Tempeh is an ancient food that has its origins in Indonesia, where it is traditionally made from soy beans. During a controlled fermentation process the mycelium binds the beans together, turning regular soy beans into tempeh. Tempeh offers a very nutritious and delicious substitute for meat, if you know how to prepare it right.

During this workshop you will learn all about the symbiosis between the mushroom and legume and the underlying microbiological process. Under the guidance of Sasker Scheerder you will prepare your own beans. You will gain a better understanding of preparing tempeh yourself using any legume you like. Two days after the workshop, the beans will have turned into tempeh and you can collect your self-made tempeh at Mediamatic!
