Sandor Ellix Katz : The Art of Fermentation
SANDOR ELLIX KATZ:
Is a fermentation revivalist. His book Wild Fermentation (2003), with a forward by Sally Fallon Morell and the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught across North America and beyond, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts.
A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him "one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene." His latest book, The Art of Fermentation (2012), with a forward by recent convert, Micheal Pollan, received a James Beard award. Sandor teaches fermentation workshops in Tennessee and many other places. For more information, check out his website http://www.wildfermentation.com.

What is fermentation? And how does it transform food? Come listen to fermentation revivalist Sandor Ellix Katz with tasting of a range of fermented foods provided by http://www.culturedprobiotics.co.uk/
Sandor will discuss the biological inevitability of microbial transformation of our food, and ways in which human culture has harnessed this inevitable natural force. Learn basic fermentation concepts, and about the healing qualities and nutritional importance of live-culture ferments, as well as their illustrious history and integral role in human cultural evolution. There will be ample time for questions.
