Love Your Gut with Sandor Katz
Saturday, February 14, 2015 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
What better gift to give your loved one (or yourself) than the gift of good health? This Valentine’s Day, we are thrilled to host internationally known fermentation guru Sandor Katz at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market for a class exploring fermented foods and gut health. You will learn to make delicious, seasonal sauerkraut that will sustain you and improve your microbiome, and hear from a passionate advocate with an encyclopedic knowledge about all things fermented.
Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His interest in fermentation grew out of his overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition, and gardening. Since 2003 when his book Wild Fermentation was published, he has taught hundreds of workshops demystifying fermentation and empowering people to reclaim this important transformational process in their kitchens. The New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.”
His latest book, The Art of Fermentation (2012), received a James Beard award and was a finalist at the International Association of Culinary Professionals. He presents workshops all over the U.S., as well as Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Indonesia, and India.
This class takes place in the CUESA Classroom (in front of the Ferry Building, south of the clock tower). The class will be followed by a book signing.
