Lauren Mueller‘s interest in fermentation and preserving began about four years ago when she started gaining an understanding of how much food goes to waste in Australia and elsewhere. Her explorations into food security lead her into learning more about the magic of fermentation and pickling and she became enthralled in the process and intrigued by it’s amazing health benefits.
