The Earthworm Express

Overview

The Earthworm Express is entirely devoted to great stories from food science and technology. Meat science and pork in particular.

Here I track the development of bacon and curing technology through the ages.

I interview the greats in the food industry and write about the greats from the past.

I feature the frontiers of new technology that seek better quality products, “produced more naturally,” and with greater processing efficiency’s.
