Description

  • Hard Cover
  • Indepth kombucha need to know
  • Winner of the 2013 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship, and a New York Times bestseller, The
    Art of Fermentation is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Katz
    presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide a reader through their
    first experience making sauerkraut or yogurt, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding and insight for
    experienced practitioners.

    While Katz expertly contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, health and nutrition,
    and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information―how the processes work; parameters for
    safety; techniques for effective preservation; troubleshooting; and more.

    With two-color illustrations and extended resources, this book provides essential wisdom for cooks, homesteaders,
    farmers, gleaners, foragers, and food lovers of any kind who want to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for
    arguably the oldest form of food preservation, and part of the roots of culture itself.

    Readers will find detailed information on fermenting vegetables; sugars into alcohol (meads, wines, and ciders); sour
    tonic beverages; milk; grains and starchy tubers; beers (and other grain-based alcoholic beverages); beans; seeds; nuts;
    fish; meat; and eggs, as well as growing mold cultures, using fermentation in agriculture, art, and energy production,
    and considerations for commercial enterprises. Sandor Katz has introduced what will undoubtedly remain a classic in food
    literature, and is the first―and only―of its kind.
