So last night I went to hear Sandor Katz talk about his new book The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved: Inside America’s Underground Food Movement (that’s a mouthful) at Modern Times Book Store in San Francisco. Although I was familiar with his work (love his first book Wild Fermentation) I had not heard him speak before. I was impressed.
His talk was really informal. He just kinda went with the flow. And it worked. He’s pretty knowledgeable about everything food, waxing poetically about a range of topics—from fermentation to factory farms. In addition to presenting the hard facts he peppered his talk with personal stories of being on the road and visiting food co-ops, farmer’s markets, community spaces, and farms.
In the spirit of Grub, he includes recipes in the book. He even brought a mixture of kimchi and sauerkraut for us to sample. We were lucky to try it, as it almost got confiscated at the airport! Damn terrorist microorganisms.
