The Art of Fermentation – Sandor Ellix Katz. This not a recipe book but a comprehensive guide to all things fermented, including a fascinating look at fermented foods within their physiological, sociological and cultural contexts.
Wild Fermentation – Sandor Ellix Katz. This book is more of a recipe book style and covers many different aspects of ‘wild’ (as opposed to cultured) fermentation. Real Food Fermentation – Alex Lewin A well-illustrated recipe book covering all the fermenting basics
Nourishing Traditions – Sally Fallon NT is a wildly popular book on politically incorrect ‘real food’ and contains a number of fermented food and drink recipes. All the recipes use whey as a starter however as will most ferments, I feel it is not strictly necessary and extra salt can be substituted instead.
Cultured Food for Life – Donna Schwenk
Culture Your Life – Louise Kane Buckley
