Hi, I’m Holly

I teach students how to safely transform everyday vegetables into flavorful, gut-healing superfoods.

In 1985, on a quiet side street in Moscow, Russia, a woman named Nastasia invited me to her home and offered me my first kombucha. I was hooked. And this was way before kombucha was hip, mind you. 

At a pub in Munich, Germany, I ate my first sauerkraut alongside bratwurst and washed it down with a stein of hefeweizen. I don’t drink beer anymore, but sauerkraut is my daily fix.

Once, on a two-week road trip from Vancouver Island to Napa Valley, I didn’t bother to pack my sauerkraut. My digestion slowed to a crawl, my energy plummeted, and the fun was gone. That was the last time I made that mistake.

I have been learning, perfecting, and teaching the art of fermentation since 2002. 

My mission is to help people invite the powerful and fun world of healthy bacteria into their homes in order to ferment delicious, gut-healing foods.

I have taught over 1,000 happy students how to safely ferment at home, both in-person and online. Come join the fermentation party!


Don’t Just Take My Word For It:

I just tasted your Sweet Garlic Sauerkraut after 3 weeks of fermenting. WOW! It was the best I have ever had. The taste, texture, and CRUNCH of this were unbelievable.

I could eat the whole jar by myself. Every time I go by the fridge, I take a forkful!

My 8-year-old son and I just made our first batch of homemade sauerkraut last Sunday. We let it ferment in the hallway closet for a week and tasted it yesterday.

This was the best sauerkraut we’ve ever had and my entire family loves it. My 3-year-old was asking for it for breakfast this morning.

When I first began eating sauerkraut, I noticed a significant difference in how I felt within 4 days.

After one week, evening belly bloat disappeared, recurring constipation was gone, and I felt more energetic and just plain healthy!

My husband and I have noticed a difference in our health in the short time we have started consuming store-bought sauerkraut, and I am now very keen to start experimenting and fermenting myself.
