Episode 7: Seduce a Prince for Kefir Grains

This weeks conversation includes our thoughts on an opinion we read about commercial production of food often times being superior to small-scale artisanal foods. Plus we take a closer look at Kefir history and microbiology.

Does small-scale food taste better? Is it of higher quality? What is the difference between small-scale and artisanal?

How to make kefir, where to find kefir grains and how kefir grains escaped the caucasus mountains.
