Sandor Ellix Katz

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, his explorations in fermentation developed out of overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition, and gardening. This book, originally published in 2003, along with his The Art of Fermentation (2012) and the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. Newsweek called Wild Fermentation "the fermenting Bible," and The New York Times calls Sandor “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” For more information, check out his website www.wildfermentation.com

Sandor Katz at Walnut Ridge Fermentation Residency

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

From November 2-7, 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. Participants will also be gardening, harvesting, foraging, and visiting local farms. Expect to learn new skills beyond fermentation, and come prepared to work hard. Food is included in the program cost, but students share in food preparation and clean-up. 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]
