The Fermentation Kitchen includes recipes for breadmaking, pickling, cheesemaking, methods for making vinegar and kombucha, and how-to steps for making charcuterie.
“It’s not a coincidence that fermented foods and beverages are having a moment right now,” author Gabe Toth said. “The DIY-craze spurred from COVID-19 lockdowns created a fermentation boom that’s still going strong. The Fermentation Kitchen is part how-to guide, part cookbook, and part reference manual on how fermented foods work and what levers you can pull to tweak your recipe. With the details in my book, readers will learn how to use craft beer to ferment vegetables, kombucha, bread, sausage, vinegar, condiments, and more.”
Author Gabe Toth is a brewer, distiller, and journalist who spent 15 years studying and experimenting with fermented and live-culture foods. After a decade-long newspaper career, he moved into the craft beer world in 2010 at Santa Fe Brewing Company, subsequently moving between brewing and distilling and earning medals from the Great American Beer Festival®, World Beer Cup®, the American Distilling Institute, and the American Craft Spirits Association. Today, he oversees operations at The Family Jones production distillery in Denver.
