Episode 126: The Cultivation & Fermentation of Olives with Sotiris Kitrilakis of Big Picture Foods


For the latest episode of The Appropriate Omnivore, Aaron welcomes on Big Picture Foods co-founder Sotiris Kitrilakis. Big Pictures produces on Aaron’s favorite things to eat — olives. These are olives different from what we typically see on the market. Most of the olives available in supermarkets aren’t fully fermented and have chemical products added into them. Sotiris tells the stories of how each of the different types of olives go through the traditional fermentation process. In addition to being truly fermented, the olives are also grown using regenerative agriculture. More recently Big Picture Foods has expanded into regenerative and fermented peppers and capers, two foods also long overdue. Plus Sotiris tells the listeners what other products Big Picture Foods has in development.
