Rich was recently featured in the Boston Globe for using koji mold to make cookies and other delights. He's on a culinary quest to use the unique flavors of fermented foods in new ways, and to teach others how to do the same thing.

I'll be there talking about the microbiology of fermented foods, and how Lactobacilli are harnessed to make most traditional hotsauces, chutneys and other condiments. The last one of these I went to was a blast - the food was delicious and I learned a bunch. So grab a friend come join us!
