Sandor Katz's Fermentation Journeys

Sandor Katz's Fermentation Journeys

Author: Sandor Katz Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/10/2021

Fermentation Journeys of the World is a cookbook which advocates fermented food not only as a sustainable source of tasty dishes but as a means to explore the world from your kitchen. The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is observed on the 9th August - a coincidence that did not go unnoticed by the International Panel for Climate Change on the day it released its starkest report yet. The IPCC acknowledged that indigenous knowledge of food processes could help us tackle the crisis. So what are fermented foods? Most people would probably not get past alcoholic beverages when thinking of fermentation but Sandor Katz delivers recipes in every department. Vegetables, meat and fish are all in there, but so are beans and seeds, mold cultures and milk. Dishes such as Mexican-Inspired Kimchi, Sauerkraut Chocolate Cake and Koji may sound experimental and edgy but they are in fact very easy to put together. Some recipes take as little as thirty minutes, but in other cases the food can take weeks to ferment before it is ready. I love this simplicity - allowing time and nature to do its thing, producing these wonderful and rich flavours from across the globe where they have been at the core of culinary practice for centuries, if not millennia. Fermentation Journeys is a return to the roots of cooking and a brilliant guide for adventurous foodies ready to join the fermentation revolution!

The Complete Book of Vegan Compleating

The Complete Book of Vegan Compleating

Author: Ellen Tout Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/09/2021

What is "compleating"? Completely eating every part of a fruit or vegetable! Plant-based diets are a wonderful way to protect the planet, but fruits and vegetables still have carbon footprints, and often the parts we throw away or compost are the most nutritious and delicious bits. Ellen Tout, sustainability expert and dedicated vegan, is passionate about maximizing the benefits of veganism, and through just a few simple tips, tricks and ingenious recipes she can revolutionize the way you cook. Transform banana skins into pulled pork ; make amazing vegan butter from the liquid in a can of chickpeas; give new life to leftover wine by making your own vinegar; forget everything you knew about kiwi by whipping up a batch of whole kiwi salsa for tacos. Arranged alphabetically, not only does each section include internationally-inspired recipes, but also tried-and-tested, environmentally-friendly alternatives to household cleaning, beauty products, and pet food. Dye fabrics pink with avocado skins; or transform a coconut half into a houseplant pot. Compleat recipes show how to make dishes that use every part of the ingredient, such as Pumpkin Pie with Caramelized Seeds or Carrot Top Tabouleh, while techniques such as pickling, fermenting and off-cuts broths can save pretty much anything from the bin. Whether you're an experienced vegan cook, or just starting to explore plant-based eating, you're sure to find inspiration from this encyclopaedic guide.
