*i will write *
will write fair review hence the 3 stars which I think is generous despite my major disappointment I follow the Nordic Food Lab have watched countless videos "About It I Ve " it I ve it as inspiration and have read their scientific articles I was therefore expecting of this cookbook I make koji miso koji aminos etc so I d say I m an intermediate koji hobbyist I have a fermenter for my koji However this book did not give me any new information there s no learning how to do your own experiments there s just some ideas an inspiration which you can easily find if you dig a little or if you have enough creativity On the other end of the spectrum a lot of these are even too difficult for me lots of recipe that reuire fermenting at a certain temperature for 10 weeks sing ingredients like bee pollen and fermenting it what kind of home.

Summary The Noma Guide to Fermentation (Foundations of Flavor)

As an experienced fermenter of many things this book is valuable to me I was hoping for ferments that dealt with fish meat and dairy but there are none in this book I d be excited to see how NOMA deals with those foods There are innumerable interesting projects to be made from this book both verbatim and as touchstones for your own ingredients and ideas The biggest issue I have with it is that this is a book essentially of condiments Virtually everything in here is to be sed as either a side a small element in a larger dish or as a straight p condiment This is not necessarily bad but remember that if you spend a year aging your own soy sauce it is well just soy sauce So if you re the sort of person who digs that sort of thing as I am you ll like it If not look elsewhere Amazing A detailed guide for the advanced class in fermentation If you want a basic or broader book Sandor Katz s books are great But to take it to the next level this book is truly amazing It will allow you to ndertsand how to apply fermentation techniues to other substrates Learn how to lacto ferment and the how to experiment and apply to other items you are interested in This book in particular is for cooks Lots of examples of how to Bonsái utilize these ferments to take your cooking to the next level I wanted tonderstand how to se Koji and ferment it this book teaches me specifically how I wanted to learn how to build a fermentation chamber this teaches me how If you want basics or ready to eat see Sandor is great But if you want to take your ferments to next level this book is indispensable and best in class Thank Ren and David I feel ite bad for not writing this sooner SorryThis is by far the most professionally written book on fermenting that I have ever read My original review was inaccurate I have now completely fallen head over heels for this book and I would A Little Kinder urge the writers to comep with part 2 3 4It gives an in depth science and account of how to ferment and I treat it as my go

Cook has this budget so I can t help asking who s the audience It s neither a beginner book for people getting into home miso and koji making The Book of Miso is still the book after all these years and is comprehensive nor is it for people who have dabbled looking for It gets a few stars because it s a pretty book has nice pictures and it s one of the first of its kind at least starting perhaps a koji making fad The Noma Guide to Fermentation doesn t just teach you how to ferment it teaches you why And the biggest why is that the ferments in this book will make your food delicious The book starts with very easy projects like lacto fermentation typical recipe fruit salt jar time on through The Complexities Of Making Shoyu The World complexities of making shoyu the world most popular fermented flavor Yes you can make your own soy sauce More than that this guide gives you the foundation the whys that you can se as a jumping point to go beyond the recipes in the book to fermentallthethings Thank you Rene and David for sharing your knowledge This is a fantastic extesive book for peoplecookschefs that want to learn about fermentation and how it worksIf you just want a book to open and cook the same day this isn t the book you re looking for Overall an amazing read if you re someone who wants to learn how fermentation works and possibly try it on your own This is a reasonably complicated subject Layout of the ideas and content are paramount for a book with this kind of detail and depth of explanation I haven t yet had sight of the printed book I ordered it as a replacement to my Kindle edition but the Kindle version doesn t do it justice and so I returned it Odd one might have thought that a Kindle version of a complex subject would work better I get the impression that many a complex subject would work better I get the impression that many these Kindle editions of practical books are really just an after thought the ality of the images are poor they re not optimised for I ve done a lot of fermenting and preserving so I had a good amount of experience going into this book and I am still blown away at the amount of work gone into this and how scientific the approach isEvery recipe has incredibly detailed step by step instructions with pictures showing you whatever it is you re working on should look like instead of just describing it like a lot of books doI don t think I ll ever need another book on fermentation ever again Get this book it s a Buy For Life Thank you to Ren Redzepi David Zilber and the entire Noma team for making this book a reality.
