What better gift to give your loved one (or yourself) than the gift of good health? This Valentine’s Day, we are thrilled to host internationally known fermentation guru Sandor Katz  at the Ferry Plaza Farmers  Market for a class exploring fermented foods and gut health. You will learn to make delicious, seasonal sauerkraut that will sustain you and improve your microbiome, and hear from a passionate advocate with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things fermented. 

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His interest in fermentation grew out of his overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition, and gardening. It started with sauerkraut. He found an old crock buried in his barn, harvested cabbage from the garden, chopped it up, salted it, and waited. That first kraut tasted so alive and powerfully nutritious! Its sharp flavor sent his salivary glands into a frenzy and got him hooked on fermentation. He has made sauerkraut ever since, earning the nickname Sandorkraut, even as his repertoire has expanded.

Sandor lives in Cannon County, Tennessee, where he is part of a vibrant extended community of queer folks (and many other friends and allies). Since 2003 when his book Wild Fermentation was published, he has taught hundreds of workshops demystifying fermentation and empowering people to reclaim this important transformational process in their kitchens. The New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.”

His latest book, The Art of Fermentation (2012), received a James Beard award and was a finalist at the International Association of Culinary Professionals. He presents workshops all over the U.S., as well as Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Indonesia, and India.

Tickets are $15. This class takes place in the CUESA Classroom (in front of the Ferry Building, south of the clock tower). It will be followed by a book signing.
