Savor: The Return Of The Fermentistas

William Smith
Miso and natto (in the spoons), surrounded by adzuki, pinto and cattle beans and a selection of three tempehs.

In the world of fermenting, Kirsten and Christopher Shockey are rock stars.  They were among the headliners at the recent "Live Culture Coast" events on the Southern Oregon Coast. 

In fact, the culture part was a double (maybe triple) entendre, with an eye on the living culture of fermentation included.  The Shockeys return to The Exchange for this month's edition of Savor, our food segment. 

Food stylist William Smith, our partner, rounds up the first-rate fermenters for a chat.  We explore some of the dos and don'ts of fermenting food.
