This book is divided into chapters that focus on particular types of food, and Katz provides readers with delicious recipes - some familiar, some exotic - that are easy to make at home. They include vegetable krauts and tempeh, beers, wines and meads, yoghurts and cheeses. The recipes provide a veritable smogasbord of tastes, like homemade tempeh, sauerkraut, and borscht, along with a basic description of yoghurt and cheese-making, complete with vegan alternatives. Whether you prefer to wash down your meal with Elderberry wine or Nepalese rice beer, there's something here to satisfy any palate.
Sandor Ellix Katz, a self-taught fermentation experimentalist, wrote Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods in order to spread the fermentation wisdom he had learned, and demystify home fermentation. Live fermented foods are critically important to human health, and are central elements of many different culinary traditions.
"Sandor Katz has labored mightily to deliver this opus magnum to a population hungry for a reconnection to real food."--Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions
