On the newest edition of Sound Bites, our series on our food and our world, we begin with a segment on fermentation with Sandor Ellix Katz, fermentation revivalist and author of Wild Fermentation, The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved, and, most recently, The Art of Fermentation. 

Then, we examine an important recent Federal Court decision, ruling that the EPA cannot approve a pesticide that has been documented to be involved in the deaths of honey bees. With Tom Philpott, Mother Jones food and agriculture reporter and co-founder of Maverick Farms in North Carolina.

We close the hour with a look at Farm to Chef, a local culinary competition that benefits Days of Taste, an interactive program that encourages elementary school students to appreciate the taste and benefits of fresh food by introducing them to the basic elements of taste and teaching them about food’s journey from farm to table. With Riva Eichner Kahn, Organizer of Days of Taste. The Farm to Chef event will take place on October 5th at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore.
