    Cultured Food Life


    "Great for newbies"

    This is where I started with learning about fermentation. Still a newbie but with more understanding and clarity around the subject. Has a great collection of recipes that I am yet to try.

    Very interesting and informative book, have not tried any recipes yet. My kombucha is making enough to drink, as soon as I make vinegar I am going to try to make ketchup.

    "It helped this ignorant person."

    I had never fermented food until three weeks ago.i began in earnest, determined to do a thorough job. I had, with the help of Idiot's Guide, beginner's luck ok the first effort. After sampling the fermenting food, we decided to complete our equipment. We now have a complete array of pots, yogurt maker, and the determination to wear the very helpful Idiot's Guide out. I referred too it several times in the Process of preparation. Happy with it.

    "Lifesaver --- great backup plan"

    i was so worried about making fermented anything believing i would mess it up. in instances like that, i would typically not do anything while waiting for that one thing that would assure me i had the right instruction. this dvd is terrific --- basic, clear and reassuing at the same time. i can read directions but not always certain i am following them correctly. i'm much more a visual learner and this dvd fit my learning style to a T. plus there is the addd benefit of being able to return view it again if i have additional questions. i've watched all segments 2 times already. thanks!

    "Worth the time, Worth the money Super DVD"
