Join us for an evening with Katherine Harmon Courage, author of Cultured: How Ancient Foods Can Feed Our Microbiome, a revealing look at the 300 trillion microorganisms that keep us healthy—and the foods they need to thrive.
These days, probiotic yogurt and other “gut-friendly” foods line supermarket shelves. But what’s the best way to feed our all-important microbiome—and what is a microbiome, anyway?
In this engaging and eye-opening book, science journalist Katherine Harmon Courage investigates these questions, presenting a deep dive into the ancient food traditions and the latest research for maintaining a healthy gut.
