Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Bread. Cheese. Wine. Beer. Coffee. Chocolate. Most people consume fermented foods and drinks every day. For thousands of
    years, humans have enjoyed the distinctive flavors and nutrition resulting from the transformative power of microscopic
    bacteria and fungi. Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods is the first cookbook to
    widely explore the culinary magic of fermentation.

    "Fermentation has been an important journey of discovery for me," writes author Sandor Ellix Katz. "I invite you to
    join me along this effervescent path, well trodden for thousands of years yet largely forgotten in our time and place,
    bypassed by the superhighway of industrial food production."

    The flavors of fermentation are compelling and complex, quite literally alive. This book takes readers on a whirlwind
    trip through the wide world of fermentation, providing readers with basic and delicious recipes-some familiar, others
    exotic-that are easy to make at home.

    The book covers vegetable ferments such as sauerkraut, kimchi, and sour pickles; bean ferments including miso, tempeh,
    dosas, and idli; dairy ferments including yogurt, kefir, and basic cheesemaking (as well as vegan alternatives);
    sourdough bread-making; other grain fermentations from Cherokee, African, Japanese, and Russian traditions; extremely
    simple wine- and beer-making (as well as cider-, mead-, and champagne-making) techniques; and vinegar-making. With
    nearly 100 recipes, this is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging fermentation cookbook ever published.
