Fabulous Ferments 35% Off

It’s time to join the growing movement and become a conscientious objector—if not outright draft resister—in the war on bacteria.

How? Simple. Ferment your own food.

As award-winning author Michael Pollan notes in his latest book Cooked—which includes a lengthy section on fermentation that prominently features Chelsea Green author Sandor Ellix Katz—fermented foods replenish the necessary bacteria our gut needs to keep us healthy; bacteria we’ve decimated with our modern cultural obsession with “cleanliness.” Along with eliminating this bacteria we need to survive and thrive, we’ve become disconnected with how to make our own, healthy, raw and cultured foods like bread, cheese, yogurt, or sauerkraut.

Eco-Food Sale: 35% off until June 5th

As judges from the James Beard Foundation Book Award and the International Association of Culinary Professionals demonstrated this year—where Chelsea Green books on fermentation were honored—fermented foods, and how to make them, should be celebrated, not feared.

Whether your favorite ferment is sauerkraut, or cheese, or bread—we have a book that will help you deepen your understanding of the process, make the most of your garden harvest, and replenish the helpful bacteria in your body.

Happy fermenting from the folks at Chelsea Green Publishing!
