Who am I?

Hi, my name is Robyn and I’m the head fermenter at Ferment Frenzy.

I’m the proud mum of a foodie son, I adore my two dogs and I have a special knack for cooking and baking. I love to share my creations with family and friends and lucky for them, I really enjoy experimenting with different recipes.

The Ferment Frenzy journey started out making cheese and kefir in my small home kitchen.  I also dabbled in spelt sourdough until I lost the mother, later found to be hidden at the back of the fridge.  I then transitioned to making different variations of sauerkraut and kimchi.  Fascinated by the science, mystery, health benefits and the traditional aspect of fermentation, I started to delve a little deeper into the how and why of fermenting. I conducted a lot of my own research and travelled to Canada, learning the fermentation methods of Gary Caldwell.  Since then, I’ve proudly expanded my range and now sell from various farmers markets across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. We will also soon be launching our first online shop.

Please join me as I’m continuously learning and I love sharing my stories and expertise.  As I expand my tasty and nourishing business, I’ll be playing around with some different recipes and food combinations.  I’ll share my favourite recipes at my workshops and together we’ll experiment with all things fermented as we set out on a journey of discovery and transformation, improving our health and wellbeing with nutrient dense and delicious foods.
