This cookbook goes far beyond general instructions and explores the transformative process of fermentation through detailed descriptions of traditional fermentation techniques, while celebrating local customs and ceremonies that surround particular ferments. Illustrated with photographs from Sandor’s own travels, the book features over 60 recipes for global ferments, including:

• Saké by the Bodaimoto Method (Japan)
• Doubanjiang (China)
• Efo riro spinach stew (Nigeria)
• Whole sour cabbages (Croatia)

Sandor Katz’s Fermentation Journeys reminds us that the magical power of fermentation belongs to everyone, everywhere. Perfect for adventurous foodies, armchair travelers, and fermentation fanatics who have followed Katz's work through the years – from Wild Fermentation to The Art of Fermentation to Fermentation as Metaphor – this book reflects the enduring passion and accumulated wisdom of this unique man who is arguably one of the world’s most experienced and respected fermentation advocates.
