Celebrate National Pickle Month with fermentation expert and revivalist, Sandor Katz. Sandor will take us through all things pickles, a lifelong love of his, including what makes sour pickles special and how sauerkraut, kimchi, and all fermented vegetables are pickles. Katz will delve into a recipe for Pao-cai, Chinese pickles, from his newest book, Fermentation Journeys.

Sandor Ellix Katz is the author of five books: Wild Fermentation; The Art of Fermentation; The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved; Fermentation as Metaphor; and his latest, Fermentation Journeys. Katz’s books, along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Katz is the recipient of a James Beard award and other honors.
