The Art of Fermentation

The first and only of its kind, Sandor Katz's The Art of Fermentation will undoubtedly remain a classic in food literature. Its pages are filled with essential wisdom for cooks, homesteaders, farmers, foragers, food lovers and anyone else who wants to deepen their appreciation for this ancient form of preservation. With illustrations and comprehensive resources, Katz presents fermentation in a way that is simple enough to guide the novice through the process of making sauerkraut or yogurt, yet detailed enough to broaden the understanding of even the most experienced practitioner. Hardcover; 528 pages.

Best Fermentation book you can find.
April 18, 2013
This is easily the most comprehensive fermentation book ever published. We have Katz's Wild Fermentation as well, and have found even more information and recipes in this newest setup.
Im unsure why the other reviewer mentioned there are no recipes, as this book is slam full of them. For example, there are two pages of herbal elixir mixes for mead making; multiple pages regarding the incubation and care of a ginger bug; more kombucha mother pictures ::yikes!:: than you'll find on the internet; and is a tremendous resource for tracking down cultures and materials.
A must for everyone.

Fun idea, but no recipes...

Purchased this book for my husband who loves to eat and prepare all kinds of fermented food. This book is fun, but contains no receipes. It seems teh authoir intends to inspire would be fermenters. A few receipes would have been nice.
