Tabchilli....truly inspiring....Where passion and teaching are passed on by the Master Fermento Maher. Kimchi and Sauerkraut Workshop 101 ✔️👌🏽

An amazing workshop that’s a must for everyone. Maher is a brilliant teacher! He explains the science behind fermentation in a very simple and easy way. Learning the art of making our own fermented food which is so so healthy, is such a great skill to have. I will say it’s fun, informative and I highly recommend his workshops .

What a great addition to the food ecosystem that we have in Dubai and the UAE as a whole. Tabchilli is bringing to us the unique taste fermented chillies can bring to food while raising awareness how fermentation can benefit our health. But for me, I’m here for the flavor it adds to me food. Hoping to see additional ferment products soon!

Unique and valuable experience. Maher gave us a thorough introduction to fermentation, giving a good background to its benefits and the science behind it all. Then, when we got to making the kimchi and hot sauce, instructions were very clear and it was so fun! We were provided with all the necessary materials to carry on the experience at home, even getting personalised assistance form Maher directly afterwards. Such a great experience.

I had the pleasure in doing the fermentation workshop/ Kimchi & hot sauce. Maher was very knowledgeable and professional in conducting the workshop and could tell that he is very passionate about the subject. It was very well organised and everything was neat and clean. The result is an amazing Kimchi, better than I've had in many restaurants, and the hot sauce was great also with more depth in the taste ( not just spicy) . Looking forward to making bigger batches .

I enjoyed the workshop greatly! Maher has an amazing & easy way of explaining everything and makes sure everyone is fully engaged 🙂 i also bought his magical chilly sauce for my husband who became hooked :)) thank you Maher for a great concept and looking forward to new workshops 🙏

Didn't know that the Hot sauce could be this easy to make and it tastes so good! Thanks to Maher for the fermentation class and now I can enjoy my own hot sauce anytime, any day😊

Great concept and true passion right down to the sourcing of ingredients. I love spice and can’t live without it. I add Maher’s stuff to almost every second meal now. If you need a spice kick for any dish, this place has the healthiest and tastiest option on the market.
