Wild Fermentation – Sandor’s seminal work on fermentation with loads of recipes of fermented foods and drinks from around the globe.
The book covers vegetable ferments such as sauerkraut, kimchi, and sour pickles; bean ferments including miso, tempeh, dosas, and idli; dairy ferments including yogurt, kefir, and basic cheesemaking (as well as vegan alternatives); sourdough bread-making; other grain fermentations from Cherokee, African, Japanese, and Russian traditions; extremely simple wine- and beer-making (as well as cider-, mead-, and champagne-making) techniques; and vinegar-making. With nearly 100 recipes, this is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging fermentation cookbook ever published.

Fermentation Workshop DVD – Enjoy Sandor’s fermentation workshop from the comfort of your own home!

This intimate workshop and interview will prove invaluable both for total beginners and longtime fermentation lovers. Complete with cultural commentary, practical preparation guidance (including recipes), and a demonstration for just-right sauerkraut—and featuring an extended interview with Katz—this video is perfect for food-lovers of any kind.

The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved – Sandor’s look at the processed food industry.

From community-supported local farmers, community gardeners, and seed saving activists, to underground distribution networks of contraband foods and food resources rescued from the waste stream, this book shows how ordinary people can resist the dominant system, revive community-based food production, and take direct responsibility for their own health and nutrition.
