The Book That Started the Fermentation Revolution
Sandor Ellix Katz, winner of a James Beard Award and New York Times bestselling author, whom Michael Pollan calls the "Johnny Appleseed of Fermentation" returns to the iconic book that started it all, but with a fresh perspective, renewed enthusiasm, and expanded wisdom from his travels around the world. This self-described fermentation revivalist is perhaps best known simply as Sandorkraut, which describes his joyful and demystifying approach to making and eating fermented foods, the health benefits of which have helped launch a nutrition-based food revolution.
Since its publication in 2003, and aided by Katz's engaging and fervent workshop presentations, Wild Fermentation has inspired people to turn their kitchens into food labs: fermenting vegetables into sauerkraut, milk into cheese or yogurt, grains into sourdough bread, and much more. In turn, they've traded batches, shared recipes, and joined thousands of others on a journey of creating healthy food for themselves, their families, and their communities. Katz's work earned him the Craig Clairborne lifetime achievement award from the Southern Foodways Alliance, and has been called "one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene" by The New York Times.
This updated and revised edition, now with full color photos throughout, is sure to introduce a whole new generation to the flavors and health benefits of fermented foods. It features many brand-new recipes--including Strawberry Kvass, African Sorghum Beer, and Infinite Buckwheat Bread--and updates and refines original recipes reflecting the author's ever-deepening knowledge of global food traditions that has influenced four-star chefs and home cooks alike. For Katz, his gateway to fermentation was sauerkraut. So open this book to find yours, and start a little food revolution right in your own kitchen.

"This book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented."
--His Holiness the Dalai Lama
"Absolutely the best book I've read on nutrition and diet"
-Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones Solution
From the physician behind the wildly popular Nutrition Facts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can help prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.
In recent years, there has been a great deal of research exploring the relationship between maintaining an optimal balance of healthy bacteria in our gut, known as "healthy gut", and the impact of a healthy gut on overall health and disease prevention and treatment.
There are two bacteria key to a healthy gut: probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that naturally live and flourish in the colon of our digestive systems. Prebiotics, on the other hand, are non-digestible carbohydrates that also live in the digestive system where they act as "food" for the beneficial probiotics. Unfortunately, there are some lifestyle choices, such as poor diet and overuse of antibiotics, that can seriously compromise healthy levels of probiotics and prebiotics.
The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide is a guide to achieving and maintaining an optimal balance of prebiotics and probiotics in the digestive system. Written by one of North America's leading gastroenterologists, the book explains what and exactly how probiotics work, as well as how they are linked to diseases like inflammatory bowel disease and urinary tract infections. The health benefits of prebiotics are also covered and their role in diseases such as colon cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, weight loss and calcium absorption.
To get you off to the best possible start with respect to both prebiotics and probiotics, The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide has 175 tempting recipes that promote optimum amounts of each. Foods like yogurt, kefr, sauerkraut and miso soup are covered for their positive probiotic benefts, and such foods as asparagus, chicory root, garlic, onions, and dietary fiber, which optimize prebiotics, are also covered.
This is a comprehensive and practical choice for making important changes that can have a profound effect on health and well-being.
