5.0 out of 5 stars OH So Good!!!, December 2, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods (Paperback)
I love this book! I've tried a few of the recipes and just love the results! I can't believe none of the "back to nature" type books and publications I read talk about the simple and healthful ways of preserving food through fermentation!

Sandor does a fantastic job of taking the mystery and careful measuring out of fermentation. Most of the recipes I've read for fermentation say you must follow the recipe exactly or risk food poisoning. I'd rather play around with the recipes, so this is just perfect for me! I'm also impressed with his research into traditional recipes.

I just read that kimchi may cure Avian Flu, and the recipe in this book is a fantastic hit here! We use it as salad dressing with some sesame oil!

Mona Albano says:
No food can cure influenza: it's a viral disease that is biologically vulnerable only within our own cells--outside, viruses are inert particles. Even antibiotics, nature's own defenders against bacterial disease, can't touch them. You depend on your body's immune system to fight off a viral infection. Anything that helps your immune system--like getting enough sleep--can help your body. But cabbage particles aren't going to do it. [Edited--changed 'they' to 'viruses'.]

Maybe they're seeing a "cure" in it because it boosts the body's defenses by providing plenty of the beneficial gut flora.
