Ferment: A Guide to the Ancient Art of Culturing Foods, from Kombucha to Sourdough by Holly Davis
I don’t know if I’ve been this excited for a cookbook ever. When I heard it was coming, I shudder-remembered the horrifying “banana wine” that my friends and I once tried to make and thanked the publishing gods for bringing us this book to avoid ever repeating the effort. This is the fermentation guide for the layperson, and it’s a delight to use—complete with charts, helpful how-to notes, and Holly Davis’ signature silliness (a la her direction on the apricot and peach fruit wine: “open daily to avoid overly boisterous effervescence”). The recipes are easy to follow and make fermentation as genuinely uncomplicated as possible. Let me tell you: I want to hug this book for all of the ideas it’s bringing to my kitchen and all of the creativity it’s bringing to my heart. Join in the joy over the spicy chipotle creamed corn or the turmeric lime beer next time you want to have a laugh at yourself and the bubbling concoctions on your countertop! —Afton Montgomery, Assistant Adult Frontlist Buyer
