Dearbhla Reynolds is an expert in the art of making fermented and cultured foods and is at the forefront of its current revival. It was a natural evolution for Dearbhla Reynolds to step into the role of a fermentation revivalist: she is a cross between an old-school pharmacist (her father's job) and a home economics teacher (her mother's job). She founded The Cultured Club as an open invitation for people to come and join in the fermenting fun, when they were ready, as opposed to being forced to eat some strange at her kitchen table. This lead to a collaboration with the Michelin star winning OX restaurant in Belfast where she began teaching the art of fermentation. She has since developed a further range of courses with Kilruddery House and Gardens and Domini Kemp's Alchemy. Dearbhla currently lives in Holywood, Northern Ireland with her husband and two children.
