  • About

this red cabbage slaw is the black sheep of the book — my own, rather unconventional take on fermented slaw, it’s perfect for when you want a fiery, crunchy addition to your meal. As I ferment a lot of red cabbage at home, I have had to come up with many ways of using it, and this slaw is perhaps inspired more by my travels in Thailand than in the Baltics. For another Thai element (and as long as you don’t need the slaw to be vegan), feel free to add a dash of fish sauce to the vinaigrette.
