I have been making fermented foods for what feels to me like a long time. It has been at least six years since I made my first batch of sauerkraut. I didn't grow up making ferments, but essentially since the first year I was cooking on my own, I have been fermenting and researching about fermenting. There are not a lot of books published solely about fermentation, so I was intrigued when I saw that Alex Lewin published his book, Real Food Fermentation.
Quite honestly, however, I wasn't sure I would actually learn a whole lot from it (I know... it was a definite egotistical move on my part... we can always learn something new, right!?), but I decided to read it anyways.
Boy-howdy was I ever wrong! I learned SO much from this book. There were exotic recipes I had never imagined and really enjoyed trying. There were explanations of simple things that can go wrong when you ferment that I had never before had answered. Not only that, the pictures in the book are beautiful and appetizing and very inspiring. (Note: I always had to make sure I was eating something fermented when I was reading it because the pictures looked so good!)
