Foodie Pharmacology Podcast

Botany at the Bar! Bitters, Shrubs, Syrups & More with Dr. Rachel Meyer and Dr. Ashley Duval

September 23, 2019

Have you ever considered plant biodiversity through the lens of your taste buds? I chat with Dr. Rachel Meyer and Dr. Ashley DuVal about their work in the world of bitters and other botanical beverage ingredients. Along with Dr. Selena Ahmed, they are co-founders of Shoots and Roots Bitters and co-authors of their new book Botany at the Bar: The Art and Science of Making Bitters. We discuss the pharmacology behind some fascinating botanical ingredients that span the food-medicine continuum and offer some simple recipes on how to make your own non-alcoholic vinegar “shrubs” at home!
