Author Notes

Sbastien Bureau is a food scientist and president of MannaNova. With a background in molecular and plant biology, he started his career as head of Research and Development at RISE Kombucha. When he's not hidden away in his laboratory, he works on sustainable food development with communities and businesses around the world. Often portrayed as hyperactive, David Ct likes to do it all. Between cofounding RISE Kombucha and the organic food chain Crudessence, teaching acroyoga, organizing epic parties and writing six books on living foods, David still managed to find time to build LOOP, a circular economy business that reduces waste by transforming perfectly imperfect fruits and vegetables into cold-pressed juices.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Côté (RawEssence), co-founder of Rise Kombucha, and Bureau, a food scientist who headed research and development for Rise, team up in this useful and lighthearted book about home fermentation. The authors describe their book as an "ode to mold, bacteria, [and] fungi" and suggest that making these things human allies is "somewhat revolutionary." They even encourage readers who can't wait to get started to skip the chapters on the science and techniques of fermentation and instead jump straight into some of the simpler recipes. Fermenting is for everyone, they say, because it's empowering, healthy, enjoyable, and delicious. Their recipes cover many kinds of fermentation, from straightforward pickle-making to more complex fermenting for miso and rice koji. The recipes also include everyday foods such as sauerkraut, yoghurt, and beer, as well as rarer ones such as seitan jerky, amazake, and ginger bug starter base for ginger beer. Bureau and Côté include a chapter of recipes that incorporate fermented products, such as wild mushroom salad with kombucha vinaigrette, and tempeh burger with sauerkraut. Artfully presented with gorgeous photos throughout, this is a good starting point for anyone curious about fermentation. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
