There have been several excellent reviews that list the strengths of The Art of Fermentation. I can only add one thing - the author does an excellent job of citing his sources. I really appreciate that he does so - it allows me to go back and check for new, updated research and expand my reading. I particularly appreciate this in his section on fermentation and health. He adamantly does not claim fermented foods area a panacea and is skeptical of some of the touted benefits of various foods (kombucha as a cure for diabetes, for example). He argues, quite successfully, that fermented foods have their place in a well balanced, healthy, diet and provides the studies, traditions, and first-hand knowledge that demonstrates why.-Jonathan Smith
This is the 'bible' for all things fermented. It is a wonderful resource, I have learned so much with it, and I have given copies as gifts to friends interested in fermentation and culturing. I recommend this book highly as a reference and resource of knowledge on the subject of fermentation and cultured foods.-Trenley
Great resource! Answers all my questions about wild fermentation. Helped me to troubleshoot my buckwheat sourdough starter.-Nan Lee
Wow! Sandor Katz provides a wealth of information about the history, process and benefits of fermenting your own vegetables, drinks and other foods. This is not a "recipe" book per se, but provides all the guidelines you'll need to start your own fermentations and experiment with variations. The book is very readable, and is separated into sections by food types. I don't have his other books so cannot compare, but don't feel the need for other books to supplement this content. A friend loaned me Fermented Vegetables by Shockey and Shockey which does provide very specific recipes if that is what you need or prefer. Buying both would be a good pairing.-Catalyst
Well written and full of fascinating and useful information. There are some recipes, but this is less of a cookbook, more of an exploration and discussion of fermented foods. Highly recommended for anyone interested in a more in-depth knowledge of fermented foods.-Brandly
