The world's tiniest chefs -- micro-organisms that enhance flavors and preserve foods by converting starch and sugars into other products-- can whip up some tasty pickles, a block of cheese, even a nice glass of wine or a pint of beer to wash it down. The process is known as fermentation and it is a growing culinary trend. On today's show, we examine what's been called "the flavorful space between fresh and rotten" -- fermentation.
