Looking to improve your gut health in a fun and flavourful way? This collection of 80+ recipes is a friendly, no-fuss primer on the joys of fermented foods.

In this down-to-earth, no-fuss primer on fermented foods, Emillie Parrish introduces home cooks to deliciously easy DIY cultured foods and the principles of probiotics for health and well-being.

Organized into chapters on fermented vegetables; nuts, seeds, and beans; grains; dairy; sourdough; and beverages (plus ideas for adding your ferments to snacks and meals) the book’s 80+ recipes emphasize simplicity over specialized ingredients or equipment. The book is entirely vegetarian and includes a number of recipes specifically for gluten-free or vegan diets. From kimchi, pickles, and salsa to ginger bug, yogurt, and spreads, you’ll soon have a kitchen full of tasty fermented foods.

With beautiful photography, thorough guidelines on sanitizing, advice on mould (it’s not all bad!), and best practices for storing your ferments for the short- and long-term, Fermenting Made Simple will teach you how to make affordable, no-cook and zero-waste pickles, condiments, snacks, and treats. All of your meals will burst with flavour!
