The Art of Fermentation

The Art of FermentationIn order to increase my knowledge of fermentation, I decided I needed to purchase a book.

I’ve browsed forums, checked out blogs, but I thought it would be a great idea to have a reference book on hand. Something I could turn to without having to be plugged into a technology device.

After much research, I finally decided to purchase The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. It’s over 500 pages. I purchased the hard copy and the digital copy for my iPad.

I already knew I was in for a real treat since I’d read numerous glowing reviews about this book and I’ve seen several of his videos.

One thing you won’t ever see me do is work with the produce without wearing gloves. My nails are naturally long and even though I make sure I keep them clean, the thought of handling produce with my hands is something you won’t see me do.

Sandor is very knowledgeable about fermenting foods, and I look forward to improving my understanding of fermentation.   Since I have also purchased a digital copy, I don’t have to worry about getting my hard copy messy. That’s important to me, since I like keeping my physical books clean.

I’ve been on a bit of a raw cookbook spree lately. Up until recently I had not bought many but now I am find a slew of them I can’t find locally or even thru Inter-Library Loan.

I hope you have fun with your new book and your fermenting adventures!

It was the in-thing here once, everyone was doing it…fermenting stuff for natural enzymes. Haven’t heard of people doing it but my missus still carries on for a regular supply of enzymes for mopping and cleaning.
