Fermented Food Competition

Even with a last minute venue change the Fermented Food Competition, part of The Takedowns series, was held as scheduled at the Radian Boston, June 26th from 2 – 5 pm.  The small but passionate group of participants ranged in profession from chefs to scientists and they presented an impressive array of sweet and savory dishes that were surprising in both their complexity and appeal.   Sampling their treats and chatting with the knowledgable participants gave me an insightful and brief peak into the many possibilities of the curious world of fermented foods.
