Fermentation Revivalist Sandor Katz to Launch Second Edition of Wild Fermentation at Sterling Colle

Humans have always savored the distinctive flavors and reaped the health benefits that result when microscopic bacteria and fungi transform our fresh foods into fermented ones. But as the American food system industrialized, most people became disconnected from and suspicious of the mysterious process by which many of our favorite foods—including bread, cheese, wine, beer, coffee, and chocolate—are created. In 2003, noted fermentation enthusiast Sandor Katz reminded us of the transformative, transcendent power of fermentation with his landmark book, Wild Fermentation. This summer, a second edition of the first cookbook to widely explore the culinary magic of fermentation is being published by Chelsea Green Publishing. The book launch will be held at Sterling College on Friday, August 12, at 7 pm in Simpson Hall, Classroom 3.
