Michael Harlan Turkell // Acid Trip
"I only hope people actually go out and visit vinegar makers and vinegar factories and breweries … in the same way they would have a vineyard and taste wine because it's also so amazing to taste that product in its place."
—Michael Harlan Turkell
This week, we're excited to welcome Michael Harlan Turkell to SALT + SPINE, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.
Michael Harlan Turkell is an award-winning photographer, podcast host, and author of Acid Trip: Travels in the World of Vinegar. One of Michael's first memorable run-ins with acid wasn't in the kitchen, but in the dark room developing film in school. Years later, however, a forgotten bottle of wine turned to vinegar, which launched a global pursuit of vinegar and the people, places, and history that influence the pantry staple.
We sat down with Michael at San Francisco's The Civic Kitchen cooking school to talk about the stories behind Acid Trip: Travels in the World of Vinegar
