Emily & Brian:
Emily and Brian are both Sonoma County natives and fermented food and beverage enthusiasts. Emily explores and experiments with food on a regular basis, while Brian tends to favor distillation and brewing. In their spare time, Emily writes a food blog, Spoiled In Sonoma, and Brian is building a juice truck and creating content for a spirits magazine.
Jennifer Harris describes herself as a Bacteria Advocate and fermentation/pickling instructor. Discovering that "good bacteria" is necessary for our health, Jennifer set out on a mission to learn to preserve foods traditionally, including yogurt, sauerkraut, sour breads, pickles, wild sodas, cheese and more.
Joanna is a professional food stylist, top-of-her-class graduate from Le Cordon Blue, and James Beard Award scholarship winner. When she's not in the studio, she's likely at home with her two daughters, teaching them a thing or two in the kitchen. Joanna began styling for our series last year and we just had to put her in front of the camera.
Garrett Martin is a wine-maker, father and husband who is passionate about his home turf and truly loves the people, landscape and no nonsense farm to table approach that is prevalent in our food culture today. No stranger to the world of fermentation, Garrett learns something new about food and beverage techniques in every episode.
