Taught by Kirsten K. Shockey
Kirsten K. Shockey is the coauthor of Fermented Vegetables with her husband, Christopher Shockey. They got their start in fermenting foods with their farmstead food company, where they created more than 40 varieties of cultured vegetables and krauts. Their current focus is on teaching the art of fermenting vegetables to others through classes and workshops at their farm. They live on a 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon.
The fermented food revolution is here, and Kombucha is leading the way! This fermented, probiotic-rich tea drink has become a staple at health food stores and markets across the country. Yet most Kombucha devotees probably don’t realize how easy and inexpensive this drink is to brew at home.
If you can brew a cup of tea, you can brew Kombucha! As bacteriosapiens, we are bacteria powered. The more bacteria-rich fermented foods that we incorporate into our diet, the better we feel. Learn how easy it is to enjoy the benefits of brewing Kombucha at home for a fraction of the cost while nourishing your human microbiome in this Kombucha 101 talk & Q/A with the world’s foremost Kombucha expert, Hannah Crum aka the Kombucha Mamma.
The Big Book of Kombucha shows readers how to brew their own Kombucha from start to finish, with illustrated step-by-step instructions and recipes for 286 different flavor combinations. With endorsements from Andrew Zimmern, award-winning TV chef and Michelle Tam, best-selling author of Nom Nom Paleo, this treasury of Kombucha knowledge is the definitive resource for guidance on making and customizing the drink at home.
