Who is Christian Dohring, and why are we featuring him during our "farm-to-table dinner," The Taste of Scape? In a world that is more often than not consumed by the urge to get ahead, it is rare to find someone who is eager to help others while expecting nothing in return. Christian has that passion.
A college graduate from RIT with a degree in Biochemistry, he was on the right track help others in the best way he knew possible through western medicine. In the midst of studying for the MCAT and his readings on the impact of diet on health, he has learned that a vast majority of diseases that are seen today in the modern western civilization can be prevented solely by eating the right foods.
His biochemistry background has helped him understand the ways in which macronutrients and micronutrient interact with our system, but most notably assisted in the understanding of how, as human beings, we are merely hosts to trillions of single-celled organisms. Over the past 10 years, groundbreaking research has been published about the gut microbiome unveiling how trillions of bacteria and yeast in gastrointestinal tract influence our health and behavior.
Christian has dedicated most of his time over the past 5 months making fermented foods that are rich in probiotics such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and kombucha to help people bring their gut microbiome back into a healthy balance. Christian has begun his journey to help heal others through nutrition and has become a crucial and important member of our team. Through our Taste of Scape dinner, we'd like to honor him and support him on his journey of exploring and creating nutritious food.
