Living on Earth Interviews Author & Fermentation Evangelist Sandor Katz
PRI's Living on Earth has a great interview up with "fermentation fetishist" and microbe-connoisseur Sandor Katz.
Human beings have been involved in this process refining the practices of fermentation over the process of millennia, really. All these cured meats and cheeses and breads. But what I really like to emphasize is the simplicity of these processes at their base. I'm really trying to empower people that they can recreate these processes in their own kitchens.
The author of the seminal Wild Fermentation and the new The Art of Fermentation has a piece in our upcoming summer issue, too, but you can get a taste of his fearless funk advocacy in this talk with LOE's Steve Curwood.
