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).
