Probiotics, kimchi, sprouts, sourdough, kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut, and more. The ferments in my kitchen speak out, express themselves and dance; I can hear their bubbles and they interact with me. I have a true garden of jars and bottles in all shapes and sizes with multi-colored versions of sauerkraut, kombucha and kefir. Fermenting is very simple; you do not have to be an expert or set up a lab. All you need is to generate certain equilibrium conditions and be patient. Not much is required, there are no complex recipes or exotic ingredients. In fact, fermenting is intuitive, and no two ferments will ever be alike. In this book, I will teach you ancient techniques and many kinds of recipes to prepare sourdough, vegan cheese, different kinds of vinegar and bread, and much more. The key is falling in love with the process and channeling the alchemist in you.
