About the Author

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, his explorations in fermentation developed out of overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition, and gardening. This book, originally published in 2003, along with his The Art of Fermentation (2012) and the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. Newsweek called Wild Fermentation "the fermenting Bible," and The New York Times calls Sandor “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” For more information, check out his website www.wildfermentation.com.

Amazing book. Katz touches on several food related issues: genetic modification, loss of family farms, raw foods, water, and eating wild. Each chapter focuses on one issue, giving its history, people working for or against causes, personal examples, and my favorite: RECIPES!If you have any concerns about the food you put in your body, you must read this book.

This book has many interesting facts. It is a socialistic perspective of our food system with the respect of producer/consumer.
