Ready to dig in? Let's explore the course structure:



The Wild Pulse Method

Learning a new skill takes time, and focus - often our students find themselves struggling to keep up with a timed course, so we introduced a full access schedule meaning you can go at your own pace. So if you're feeling tired or too distracted to really focus on the videos you can stop and pick the course back up again another time.

It's scary to work with microbes at first. It's complicated and there's lots of rules to follow regarding packing the jars, the right salt, making salt brines, working with percentages, it takes a lot of mind concentration at first.


We've created the right balance of inspiration and step-by-step tutorials so you become more and more confident, and less over-whelmed as the course progresses and we'll help you source and organise the correct fermentation equipment.

Know that it's common to find it all a little overwhelming at the start but the results are exponentially worth it, as our students will tell you.





If you are excited to give fermentation a go but you don't know if you'll like it, we're offering select modules of our course so you can have a go. Choose from vegetable fermentation, drinks, kimchi, and koji. Create your first ferment within hours.

Fran and Darren do an excellent job of walking you through the basics of fermentation and showing how to make hot sauce. This has really piqued my interest in further learning about the possibilities of home fermentation. They are concise and focus on what's most important and I was pleased to learn so much in such a short period of time. As a native Texan living in Europe for over a decade, I miss having a huge variety of hot sauces readily available and am excited to start experimenting with my own hot sauces for a taste of home!


Hot Sauce Course

The Hot Sauce course was a great enrichment for me as a long-time fermentation enthusiast. Despite many studies and my own experiments, I was still able to take away a lot and will do some things differently with the next batch of hot sauce. This is especially commendable because the course is not unnecessarily long, but compactly and effectively conveys a lot of knowledge in a short time. I also found the background information and classifications of fermentation helpful once again. I can definitely recommend the course, both for beginners and advanced.



Being a dedicated chilli sauce lover, I was excited to watch this course on fermented chilli sauces. The concept is fascinating, and the course is well-paced, informative and easy to follow. You don't need to have any previous experience of making chilli sauces, just a love of spice and an inquisitive palate. Highly recommended as a starting point for the amazing world of fermentation.


Founder of the London Chili Sauce Championships

The fermentation workshop with Franziska was a great experience. She can explain a lot of information in a clear and simple way. It is amazing how many different things you can do with fermentation. We liked the kimchi preparation the most, mixing the cabbage with the paste with your hands is just so satisfying! Thank you for a great evening


head of food scouts of food company (Felfel)

Thank you very much for the informative and exciting fermentation course. Thanks to your easy to understand explanations and the insight into your experiences, I was able to learn the craft well. Your joy in fermenting was transferred to the course participants and I immediately ordered WECK jars and bought a Beurer scale. The fresh and crunchy vegetables now have to watch out for me. :-) And I'm already looking forward to trying out all the delicious recipes you've given me and will certainly be attending your KIMCHI course soon.
