Meet your Presenter:
My name is Tatiana Batskikh, or Tanya for short, I am the owner of Cultured Traditions, a small batch fermentation shop. I was born and raised in Russia, in the Ural mountains, very near the place where the movie Doctor Zhivago was filmed! I always get asked how I ended up in Georgia - I came to the United States a few times as an exchange student when I was still in college then I moved to Georgia soon after I graduated. And now, many years later, I am still here. I live in Cumming, GA with my husband Charles and four amazing children - Janet, 9, twins Charli and Max, 6, and baby Carri who is just 2 months old.
Cultured Traditions was born out of love and passion for naturally fermented foods that were, and still are a way of life in Russia - this is how families preserve their crops for long cold winter months. I started out with our traditional Russian style ferments - Russian Style Sauerkraut, Beet Kvass, Pickles, all those things that I missed so much and couldn't imagine my life without. However I love to experiment, so along the way we have added many other interesting things to our product line, and every few weeks something new inevitably gets produced in our kitchen.
