Fermentation revival comes to Belfast
Belfast — Fermentation revivalist and author Sandor Ellix Katz, aka “Sandorkraut,” will give an interactive Introduction to Fermentation presentation Thursday, Sept. 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. There is a $5 suggested donation at the door for the evening, hosted by the Belfast Co-op.
Katz’s latest book, 2012’a “The Art of Fermentation,” received a James Beard Award, and Newsweek called his 2003 “Wild Fermentation” the fermenting bible. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, Katz teaches fermentation workshops across North America and beyond.
Attendees can learn how simple it is to make their own kimchi, kefir and other fermented delicacies; learn about the healing qualities and nutritional importance of live-culture ferments, as well as their illustrious history and integral role in human cultural evolution; and empower themselves with simple techniques for fermenting these healthful foods in their homes.
Katz has helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts, and his books will be available for sale and signing; for more information, visit wildfermentation.com.
