Tomas was warm and friendly and so very knowledgeable about food preservation. His class included lecture time as well as sampling his drink concoction, very tasty, and cooking a bread recipe, along with a list of refernce books.

We spent 2.5h at Tomas’ beautiful house and garden and he opened the world of fermentation to us! It was an amazing experience, we will definitely pursue this path further. Thanks so much to Tomas and his family!
