My fellow fermentation fans, the wait is over. The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Katz is available for pre-order and will be shipping next week. From Amazon:
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.
I just ordered my copy of the 528 page book. I’m a big fan of Sandor Katz.
