Transform the Ordinary into the Extraordinary
Fermentation is one of the hottest kitchen trends of the past several years, and for good reason —it allows us to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary (delicious pickles, olives, ginger beer). But, more than that, fer-mented foods enhance nutritional value, aid in digestion and help regulate our immune systems. Contrary to what you may think, fermenting doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult or over-whelming. You don’t have to disinfect your entire kitchen or worry about weird things growing in your pantry. Home fermentation is an inexpensive way to prolong the life of your food, multiply its nutritional properties tenfold, awaken your taste buds and liven up every meal. Canadians Sebastien Bureau (a food scientist) and David Cote (an organic restaurant chain founder) have written the perfect book providing 70 easy and cost-effective recipes for everything from fermented vegetables, fruits and sugars to milk, grain and legumes. Fermentation Revolution covers the science behind fermentation, as well as types of fermenta-tion processes and useful equipment. Fermentation Revolution is an excellent book to get you started on the road to in-home fermentation. With 70 easy, healthy recipes for sauerkraut, kombucha, kimchi and more, this is THE book to help you get started, even if you’re just mildly curious.
