Editorial Reviews

Review

“Whether you’re first hearing about kombucha right this second or you’ve been filling your fridge with it for years, spend ten minutes with Kombucha Revolution and you’ll be leaping from your seat to try brewing it. Even as a longtime kombucha brewer myself, I found Stephen Lee’s detailed recipes for making and using  kombucha to be eye-opening. He’s doing things with kombucha that I never imagined, and I can’t wait to try every single one of them.”
—Emma Christensen, recipe editor at The Kitchn and author of True Brews

The recipes themselves are very clear and easy to follow.

This book is a great book for a beginner and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn and get started growing their own kombucha.

I can't wait to try at least some of the recipes in this book once we get our own SCOBY.

Kombucha Revolution By Stephen Lee and Ken Koopman

I have been a Kombucha brewer for a few years now, and I have always made it simple, using organic tea, spring water and organic sugar. I've had my Scobys for years and have given away more than I can count off hand. I've heard, read and seen that you can step it up using additional ingredients and do more with it than just drink it. Until I received this book, I never made the move other than to use a strong Kombucha tea in place of vinegar. Well, now I have to admit, I see the opportunities, am truly a convert, and I am not looking at those 3 gallons I have sitting on my counter as something just to to drink, but a new hobby. Wow! The authors begin the book appropriately with 'What is Kombucha? What are the health benefits, and just how do you make it?”. The lesson on brewing tea properly, with the correct temperatures, the correct way to boil water (yes, there really is, can't do it too long or you will have flat water), the tools you need and proper steeping times were my first eye openers to an actual art. There are hints from master brewers and ideas for infusions that are equally delicious and healthy..

I made a few of the recipes so far and have been pleased with the results. There are chapters on Juices and smoothies, spirited and non spirited cocktails followed by dressings and dunks. There are surprising recipes using Kombucha in food for main dishes, salads and even a sourdough starter. The recipe portion of the book ends with sweets and ices.. so you can gather for sure, there is something for absolutely everyone in this healthful recipe collection for a unique and beneficial drink you can easily make on your own.

I recommend this attractive, organized 151 page well designed book to anyone who has any desire to take one more step in the control of their health. I was given this book for review and it is my honest opinion.

“Kombucha. It’s been called the ‘elixer of life,’ a cure-all that detoxifies the body, aids digestion, reenergizes the mind, and even helps reverse the symptoms of cancer. Drink several glasses of this fermented tea a day and, according to some, its healing properties will lower cholesterol, help with weight loss, reduce hot flashes, and create a general sense of well-being.”

SKombucha Revolution covero begins the introduction to Kombucha Revolution, the new book by Stephen Lee, founder of Stash Tea, Tazo Tea and Kombucha Wonder Drink, with co-author Ken Koopman.

Lee goes on to describe how he first discovered kombucha on a tea-selling trip to Russia by snooping into the bedroom of an elderly woman named Mrs. Lisovski (to whom the book is dedicated). Amazed by the effervescent, tangy, slightly acidic and very pleasurable drink, he then carefully transported home a “baby” SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) to start his own kombucha brew and help bring a kombucha revolution to the United States in the early 2000s.

The introduction explains how to assemble your own kombucha kit and the proper care and feeding of your own SCOBY. New kombucha brewers will want to pay particular attention to the first recipe, entitled “Stephen Lee’s Master Plain Kombucha Recipe,” to get the basics down. The recipe is not much different than those you will find online (including my personal recipe here), though I was surprised to see that his version calls for 3-4 times as much tea leaf or tea bags than I was taught to use. In order to properly review this book, I made my next batch following his directions. It pained me to use an entire box of expensive organic tea in a single go (what can I say… I am frugal!), but the taste was excellent.

Without a doubt, fermented foods reign as royalty amongst foodies and nutritionists today. In a culture which is slowly regaining lost food preparation methods from traditional cultures far and wide, foods which act as natural probiotics are hot commodities right now. Inarguably, most people have seen these types of foods, ranging from raw sauerkraut and pickles to dairy kefir and raw milk yogurt. Kombucha, which is a naturally brewed beverage, has gained much popularity in the last few decades. In his book, Kombucha Revolution, Stephen Lee explores 75 different recipes for homemade brews and elixirs to whet even the pickiest foodie's appetite.

While there are several books on the market which guide home brewers in the basic steps to make their own kombucha brew, Lee, who is famous for his worldwide tea brands, Stash, and Tazo, goes a step beyond in suggesting delightful kombucha-based recipes for creative cocktails, desserts, and even main dishes. My favorite summer beverage choice is the Oh-So-Nice-Float, which is a healthier twist on the classic ice cream soda float. Who knew there could be so many new and interesting ways to incorporate this bubbly, effervescent probiotic beverage in the kitchen? Lee's Kombucha Revolution is a refreshing reference and recipe book in the world of fermented foods. I am thankful to add this to my recipe collection.

Purchase the Kombucha Revolution book and enjoy these recipes today! I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
