Probiotics, Fermentation and Gut Health with Sandor Katz
Sandor Katz is a NY Times bestselling author of the books Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation. Among his loyal fans is renowned food writer Michael Pollan, who has referenced Sandor in his own books, and has turned to him as a fermentation teacher in his most recent book Cooked. From my apartment in Manhattan, I spoke to Sandor via Skype while he was at his farm in rural Tennessee. My hopes for this podcast are that it helps listeners reconnect with our fermentation roots (every culture has them), inspire you to start fermenting foods to enrich your gut flora, and help you feel more comfortable making your own fermented vegetables. Listen to practical wisdom from this extremely knowledgeable, kind, humble, and fascinating cultural icon. It will reframe bacteria as a tool that can boost immunity, resilient health, and possibly heal. Highlights of what this episode covers are below. The dangers & precautionary measures one should be aware of when fermenting What to do with mold The difference between pickling vs. fermenting, and health benefits of each Various cultural practices of fermentation from around the globe Probiotics vs fermentation, and whether probiotics are worth the money Fermentation basics: what kind of salt, water, & vegetables should I use?
