Åsa Linea Simonsson grew up making ferments in her native Sweden; a trained naturopath and nurse, she runs a busy natural nutrition and health practice in the UK combined with popular workshops and retreats. Moving from an early career in nursing to running her own company manufacturing and selling natural plant-based lotions, potions, herbs and soaps to training as a naturopath, Asa sees private clients in her practice in London as well as working as a lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. She is passionate about healthy eating and especially plant-based food, and works as a raw food chef at Restore Retreat. She holds regular workshops in fermentation and other healthy food workshops.
Inspired by Asa Simonsson’s new-to-ckbk title Fermentation, we take a (good) bacteria-fueled journey through the ckbk collection to discover more about the ancient art and science of this method of preserving and enhancing food.
