Sandor Ellix Katz, a self-taught fermentation experimentalist, wrote Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods in order to spread the fermentation wisdom he had learned, and demystify home fermentation. Newsweek called it "the fermenting bible". Since the publication of Wild Fermentation, Katz has taught hundreds of fermentation workshops across North America and internationally, taking on a role he describes as a "fermentation revivalist".
"Sandor Katz is the master of fermentation. His new book is the definitive manual of 'permaculture cuisine'... a compendious masterwork that teaches both basic and advanced techniques of these kinds of 'live-culture' alchemy" Permaculture magazine "A fascinating exploration of food culture and history, as well as a how-to manual for every type of fermentation you could probably imagine" Juno magazine
