Yale Tsai Center Blog | From Sourdough to Kimchi, Students Explore the World of Fermentation
[This article features our sister business Atticus Bookstore Cafe!] “Your mother is in the fridge, and you must feed her.” This instruction may have startled anyone passing through the Marsh Hall classroom on a Friday afternoon this October, but to those gathered around the table with Charlie Negaro Jr. of New Haven’s Atticus Bookstore Café, it was a mandate to begin their journey with sourdough bread making.

It’s now looking for ways to add more health benefits without sacrificing the taste.
