Review by Booklist Reviews

The centuries-old practice of food fermentation is superhot today. Pike takes full advantage of that trend, offering recipes for comforting favorites as well as boundary-stretching fermented drinks and fare. She stresses the ease of fermentation and sets forth the health benefits of fermented foods, along with listing must-have equipment, ingredients, and types of fermented foods. There is a basic sauerkraut recipe, sure, but also yogurt pancakes and stir-fried chicken with noodles and (fermented) black-bean sauce. She includes steps for making homemade kombucha, a fermented sweet tea that is quite expensive at the supermarket. And she'll have you making a whole-milk yogurt, as well as a vegan coconut-milk version, like a pro. This book is an inviting, nonthreatening introduction to the art and science of fermentation.
