Sip, savour and devour your way to a deeper understanding of the positive (and negative) impact bacteria play in the things we love to imbibe and digest.

Explore a world of food diversity: from the differences that food preparation to your bacterial friends and foes to how fermentation might be good for you to prebiotics and probiotics. We’re talking kimchi and kefir, fibres and fresh foods, sours and sauerkraut, beans and brettanomyces, lactobacillus and leeks!
