Cultcure is a food organisation that is passionate about slow food processes like lactic fermentation, dehydration & curing. Working with time, ageing and the microorganisms around us to create delicious flavours and incredibly healthy foods.

Adam's journey into fermentation began over 10 years ago through an interest in slow ageing and preserving food. He started Cultcure initially as a meat curing project which promptly led down the road of vegetable fermenting and kombucha making. He is highly versed in various fermentation techniques and their nutritional value. Adam is fascinated with fermentation and the bacterial & microbial worlds around us and their remarkable effects on flavour, health and preservation.

We work in different locations around London and currently offer classes in Dalston at the Dusty Knuckle bakery and in Walthamstow at Today Bread. Both bakery's are true sourdough bakeries making phenomenal bread that is close to our hearts also working with wild yeasts and bacteria around us.

We also offer private tuition, classes and consulting to the industry and restaurants. If youde like to get in touch please do so through the contact link.

"We are family" sang the microbes.

We learnt all about Kombucha, Scobies and Kefir, got to taste loads of different flavour Kombucha and even took home our own scobie and kefir culture to make our own at home along with a thorough guide for us to follow. It was a fun, relaxed setting (the venue was ace) and our teacher Adam was incredibly knowledgeable and super friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in kombucha, fermentation or gut health .

Really loved the kombucha workshop - a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, AND I made a fantastic batch of kombucha of my own the next week. Really pleased with my own kombucha-making skills now and would highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn more about fermentation.

Great class, fun and informal. Adam is very knowledgable and friendly. Venue really good. It was useful to see, taste and learn about lots of different examples of kombucha and kefir, also being able to take home our own scoby and kefir grains. I'm looking forward to making my own! Thanks!

The Kombucha and Kefir class run by Adam was great. We were complete beginners, but Adam was lovely and friendly and explained everything really clearly and answered all our questions. It was great to try all the different kombucha and kefir that he had made, he also put on a lovely spread of snacks. I was really grateful to come away with a scoby, water and milk kefir grains to get me started!

Very interesting class. Nice small group so quite intimate. The setting was local for me and it leant itself to that class. Adam was very thorough in his approach and explained in detail the process of facto-fermentation. He was thorough when answering the groups questions. He provided lots of samples and tastes of fermented drinks and foods.

An original, interactive and well organised class, which yielded in a generous amount of delicious and varied fermented foods to take home and enjoy. Something completely different to do on a Sunday afternoon and great fun to learn some new recipes that can easily be recreated at home. Adam is an exceptionally approachable teacher with tonnes of additional insights about the benefits of fermented foods. The space (Today Bread, Walthamstow) has a great atmosphere and was a great new discovery in itself.

Mr Lieber is an expert and charming host. Learnt to ferment two kimchis (one fiery and fishy, one vegan and clean) and a classic red cabbage sauerkraut. All three of which you get to take home in your very own bubbling jar. Come get in a right pickle. And learn to pickle right

The class was a really informative and fun! Adam has excellent knowledge. You get to taste and learn to make a range of delicious ferments and I left feeling confident that I can adapt my own recipes based on what we learnt. I discovered that homemade pickles are far superior to shop bought ones!

Adam's really good at explaining everything and is super patient and open to everyone's input. It was a great class with delicious snacks and a good pace. We immediately got very stuck into making everything and the mix of talking and doing was spot on. The space we were working in was great as well. Overall the class was ace, definitely recommend!
