Fermented: A Four-Season Approach to Paleo Probiotic Foodsby Jill Ciciarelli, Bill Staley (Photographer), Diane Sanfilippo (Foreword by)
We live in a world where the very basic requirements of our existence are moving further and further away from tradition. Our current food system is sick and getting sicker, as is the population. It's time to return our emphasis to top-quality ingredients that are farmed and harvested in the most ethical ways. It's time to re-educate ourselves about what "real food" actually means and what it can do to help preserve our long-term health. It's time to put our well-being back at the top of our list of priorities. It's time to put the brakes on out-of-control food madness and get back to basics.
Fermented: A Four-Season Approach to Paleo Probiotic Foods is your guide to an essential aspect of ancestral eating—fermentation. A centuries-old craft practiced by traditional cultures in all parts of the world, fermenting food is a creative and inexpensive way to enhance the nutritive properties of your favorite foods and to introduce exciting, new flavors into your weekly menus.
