Now fermentation is all the rage but I’ve been banging on about it for at least six years. I love a pickle, I like the taste of rotted foods, the sourness. Sandor Ellix Katz is an HIV survivor, he bristles with vim and vigour in part due to his pioneering proselytising about fermentation and its health benefits. He’s revolutionary and counter culture - after my own heart.

Another great book dedicated to preserving foods- this time all through lacto fermentation. Wild Fermentation is the brine bible and Katz is a god to fermentation geeks around the world.
