Fermentation is an ancient way of preserving food as an aid to digestion, but the centralization of modern foods has made it less popular. Katz introduces a new generation to the flavors and health benefits of fermented foods. Since the first publication of the title in 2003 he has offered a fresh perspective through a continued exploration of world food traditions, and this revised edition benefits from his enthusiasm and travels.

As a beginning fermenter, I was looking for more of a "how to" book; this book has many excellent, creative recipes, but there is more social commentary than I anticipated. What I read of that was insightful and interesting.
This is an unusual subject for a book that is, in large part, about social change - but it works!
“Your life and my life and everyone’s lives and deaths are part of the endless biological cycle of life and death and fermentation. . . Embrace it.”

This is one of those life-changing books for anyone who has never tried to make their own fermented foods and beverages but wants to give it a try. The steps are incredibly easy to follow in this updated, full colour, version.

Wonderful book!

I've added cheese and ginger beer to the sourdough starter in my "mad scientist" corner of the kitchen.

Social change is another form of fermentation. Ideas ferment, as they spread and mutate and inspire movements for change.
