Wow, I need to finish this book! I've skimmed it and found it very interesting. I haven't tried any of the fermenting but now I am fascinated by it. I will definitely check this out from the library again. Could be the secret to always feeling good!

Fabulous guide to fermentation. There are some great tips (like wrapping kombucha in twinkle lights to increase the temperature in the winter) and some really creative recipes. It's beautifully photographed and designed. I'm really excited to try the fermented curry ketchup and fermented barbecue sauce recipes.

Simple introduction to fermentation. Whoo?

Great layout with color photos and helpful information on fermenting everything from yogurt to meat, and everything in between - the classic sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, kvass, vinegar, kombucha, and more. An interesting perspective in favor of nitrates to preserve meats that I hadn't heard before.

This is the third book I've read on fermentation and, while simple and helpful, did not stick out as unique. The pictures were lovely. Here are the recipes I'm excited to try:

Fermented grainy mustard (158)
Radicchio Kraut (164)
Radishes (166)
Jalepenos (170)
Garlic (174)
Frozen yogurt (186)
Res cabbage and apple kraut (206)
Turnips (207)
Citrus (216)

The full-size, beautifully photographed book begins with a foreword by noted Paleo expert Diane Sanfilippo and then explains health stewardship and a history of fermentation. Part I gives fermentation basics and mother recipes with information on what foods to select, water, sugar and salt requirements and so on. In this section are recipes for dairy and coconut-based ferments including several kinds of yogurts and kefir. I particularly like the Greek-style yogurt (p. 91) which starts much the s ...more

Very solid intro to the topic and much more tactical and approachable than other books I've read about fermentation. I probably shouldn't rate it until I try some recipes, but they seem reliable. I like the fact that it discusses a principle (like, you can mix juice and kombucha, let it re-ferment, and get a new beverage) and then follows it with several concrete recipes.

This is a very good resource for fermentation of food and drinks. It is comprehensive and has reliable sources of reference should there be a curiosity in reading further about the subject. I felt encouraged to try fermentation of items not yet tried, as well as to re-try those that had previously flopped. Thank you for a wonderful book!

Clear and concise with all the know-how to get started. After successfully fermenting my first jars of sauerkraut, enhancing many of my Paleo meals, ideas are now brewing wildly in my mind. O the possibilities; I'm hooked for life.

Fantastic. I had to buy myself, and others, a copy.
If you are wanting to learn to ferment food and do it the wild way (e.g. not rely on starter cultures from whey etc.) This book is for you. Clear and easy to understand.

Great book! It makes fermentation less intimidating. I got a good chuckle when I read a line about expanding these practices far and wide, reaching away from the author's native Pittsburgh, PA... Which is exactly where I am. Thanks for the courage to ferment!

I liked this book because it confirms what I already had discovered: that fermentation is really easy to do, and it is almost impossible to fail at it. My takeaway would be the yogurt recipe, although I don't know if I will try it any time soon. I'll see.

Really good but I would have loved more ideas on what to actually ferment (I'm not very inventive).
