On World Microbiome Day we celebrate all things microbial, all around the world. 

Microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, etc.) can be found everywhere in and on plants, animals, water, soil, food and humans. Within each of those habitats, microorganisms live together in communities called microbiomes. Microbiomes influence the health of humans and the entire planet therefore, scientists are exploring how these communities of organisms coexist with us and with our environment.

The theme for World Microbiome Day 2021 is Sustainability with a focus on how microbes can contribute to a sustainable future.

For World Microbiome Day on June 27th APC Microbiome Ireland SFI Research Centre is hosting Microbiome Friendly Brunch presented by Darina Allen in conversation with John Leech, an APC Microbiome Ireland SFI Research Centre PhD student who is based in Teagasc Food Research and a research officer with MASTER.

This very special online cookery demonstration will cover the following dishes - Water Kefir and Milk Kefir, Yoghurt- Labneh, Honey, Almonds, Porridge, Shakshuka with Sourdough, Granola and Pan Grilled Mackerel Miso. The cookery demonstration will launch at 11am on World Microbiome Day and be available on demand afterwards.

Darina and John will discuss how the various ingredients benefit the microbiome as the cookery demonstration progresses. They will also discuss sustainability - the theme for World Microbiome Day 2021 - and a subject which is high on the agenda for Darina Allen and Ballymaloe Cookery School.

****You will receive your link to view on the morning of Sunday 27th June****
