Episode 1.1 — The Real Food Chain — Fermented Foods Intro

http://realfoodchain.libsyn.com/websiteListen to the show here: PODCAST LINK

Welcome to Season 1 Episode 1 of The Real Food Chain!

In this episode your co-host Rich Bowden talks about the majesty and tradition of fermented foods, through the eloquent words of author Jennifer McGruther (The Nourished Kitchen) and activist, author and fermentation revivalist Sandor Katz (Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation).

That the essence of fermentation is transformation is a theme constantly explored by these advocates in their work and their words reflect the link that fermentation gives us to our forebears and their food culture. However far more than a convenient method of preserving the harvest, fermentation encourages the growth of probiotics which have such an important role to play in our gut health and overall wellbeing.

Episode 1.1 marks the start of our new way of categorising “seasons” for you our listeners. Over the course of a month we’ll bring you episodes on a particular with a wrap up with your co-hosts Jon and Rich at the end. This first season is on fermenting foods, its uses in the home and the way you can easily make fermented foods to enhance your diet.
