Gutierrez Hubbell House, Albuquerque
2016 First Annual Fermentation Festival Sells Out
Edible Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos in partnership with the Hubbell House Alliance (HHA) launched the first-ever Fermentation Festival in New Mexico on June 25, 2016. Attendees sampled offerings that included sauerkraut, kombucha, salami, cheese, and fermented spirits. The day was packed with education, from tutorials on gut health and sourdough starters to the history of winemaking and the art of crafting your own root beer.
Proceeds from this event benefited the HHA, dedicated to educating the public about, promoting interest in, and advocating for the Gutiérrez-Hubbell House History and Cultural Center. The HHA ensures access to the property and provides quality historical, cultural, and agricultural programs and events. At the 2016 festival, Edible was able to raise $4,700, the largest amount a single fundraising event has generated for the HHA.
“Thank you again for organizing the festival. It truly was one of the best run shows we’ve been to!” —Colin Dyck, Mudslide Stoneware
“What an amazing event! The concept in itself was creative and obviously aligned with the interests of a wide variety of participants—us included. Our family represented three generations (from age sixty-four to nine months), and we all found things to enjoy. We especially enjoyed the sourdough bread-making presentation, the demonstration/tasting experience from the Algodones Distillery, the Darlands’ sampling of balsamic vinegars, and the animals in the children’s area. We appreciated being able to purchase some of those items we tasted and liked,and being able to support those local NM folks.” —Tom and Jeanne Vosburgh, attendees
