The Art of Fermentation is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Ellix Katz presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide listeners through their first experience making sauerkraut, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding for experienced practitioners. While Katz contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, nutrition, and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information.

This would be a great reference material, but doesn't function well as a narrated audio book. Don't get me wrong, I loved the content. The layout is logical, by type of ferment. Since I'm not well-versed in types and methods of ferments I would have preferred being able to jump around to products that I am more familiar with, make some and branch out from there. there are a few recipes in the book, but they're all so simple that an audio format is adequate. though finding them will be a challenge. To be sure, this is a book that you want in your kitchen, but find a print copy.
