This is a rare opportunity to spend an evening with the King of Kraut as Sandor Katz makes is first visit to Belfast. In recent years he has become to fermentation what Elvis was to popular music and if you are in any way tickled by the magic of the microbes, you won't want to miss this event. Enjoy an evening with the New York Times best selling author of The Art of Fermentation and explore more than the basics of this vast topic. A new generation is once again becoming interested in fermentation, so with stories from his recent travels in the East and rural China, learn the intrinsic role that fermentation plays in other cultures and how this is the missing food we need to reintroduce to our western diets. This is enlightened eating, this is living food, this is heightened tasting and no better way to hear if from the advocate who wants people to see the world and bacteria in a new way.
