Listen to Sandor Katz on The Splendid Table

In case you missed it live this weekend, Sandor Ellix Katz, author of The Art of Fermentation was featured on the fun, informative food and cooking show The Splendid Table.

Hop on over to The Splendid Table’s website where you can listen to the show.

The site is also featuring a tasty excerpt from the new book, The Art of Fermentation, on brewing your own kombucha. Is it a cure-all wonder drink, or a potentially noxious blend of scary fungi? Sandor explains it all in the excerpt, but if you’re familiar at all with his inspired tone and love of all things fermented you probably know he falls somewhere in the happy middle ground when answering the question of how healthy kombucha is.

Katz’s balance of enthusiasm and experiential knowledge about fermenting foods has drawn readers and experimenting eaters to his books and workshops for years. If you’re new to the fermentation fan club, the show will certainly be a warm welcome.
