Sandor Ellix Katz

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His books Wild Fermentation (2003) and The Art of Fermentation (2012), along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught across North America and beyond, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, The New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” The Art of Fermentation received a James Beard award, and, in 2014, Sandor was honored with the Craig Claiborne Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Foodways Alliance. Sandor teaches fermentation workshops in Tennessee and many other places.

Sandor Katz at Walnut Ridge

Location: Walnut Ridge, Liberty, TN, 37095 | Authors: Sandor Ellix Katz

From November 4th-9th, Sandor Katz will be hosting a Fermentation Residency Program at his fermentation school at Walnut Ridge. This 5-day program is not an introductory workshop, but rather an opportunity for individuals who already have some fermentation experience to deepen their fermentation practice and thinking. Students will have access to Sandor’s extensive library of fermentation-related books. Students will also be gardening, harvesting, foraging, visiting local farms, and continuing to restore and improve Walnut Ridge. Food is included in the program cost, but students share in food preparation and clean-up. Students will camp (unless they make other arrangements). Sandor does not wish to ration space in the program solely on the basis of ability to pay, and he thus requests a sliding scale fee of $250-1000. Applications are to be emailed to Sandor at [email protected]
