Cheryl Paswater is a fermentationist, educator, health coach, artist, beekeeper, and writer. After a near-death experience, she turned to holistic medicine for help. Radical diet and lifestyle changes led her deep into the study of fermentation, old world food preservation, the human microbiome, food ethics, and holistic health. Cheryl runs a popular fermentation project called Contraband Ferments, contributes as a writer for Edible Brooklyn, has guest co-hosted on Heritage Food Radio Network's Fuhmentaboudit!, co-organizes the NYC Fermentation Festival, and is a co-organizer of the NYC Ferments Meetup. She is currently working on her first book while teaching workshops at festivals both regionally and internationally, and lives in Brooklyn, NY, with all of her cultures as pets (a.k.a. bacteria, yeast, and mold).
