Danielle Shelton is a food artisan, textile artist, writer, world traveler, and life-long learner. After spending a decade stationed in Europe (with a deployment to the Middle East), she returned to her native Arkansas where she completed her Master's degree in Medieval History. As a recent transplant to Chattanooga, she is currently a volunteer coordinator with a local non-profit. She is the blogger behind Fermdamentals, who shares her passion for fermented foods and beverages online and through classes. She spends most of her time at home either in the kitchen coming up with tasty treats, creating textile art of one variety or another, or researching and writing with a kitty in her lap.
