Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation. Discover the basic science and techniques behind fermentation and enjoy appetizers as you discuss the many health benefits fermented foods can provide.
