Many of us are familiar with yogurt, pickles, and sauerkraut, but what about kefir, kombucha, or tempeh? What do these foods have in common? They are all fermented.

Clinical dietitian Charlotte Furman, technology and wellness manager at the Department of Food and Nutrition at the UW Medical Center, will speak about what fermented foods are and why they are good for us as well as how to make them at home, providing samples and recipes!
