We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Hobart Brewing Company to host Sandor Katz for this free public Q&A. Come on down to take part in a rare yarn about ferments, food culture and the future. What a treat!

Whether you’re a long time fermenter or are yet to even try, this evening will be the opportunity to hear from one of the world’s modern day fermentation leaders. You’ll get to ask all your “fermenty” questions, learn about Sandor’s personal journey into fermentation land and hear his thoughts on our current food culture and what it could like into the future.

“Eating bacteria is one of life’s great pleasures.  Beer, wine, cheese, bread, cured meats, coffee, chocolate: our best-loved foods are almost all fermented. They start out bitter, bland, cloying, or indigestible and are remade by microbes into something magnificent”. Sandor Katz

About Sandor

Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. Since 2003 when his book Wild Fermentation was published, Sandor has taught hundreds of workshops demystifying fermentation and empowering people to reclaim this important transformational process in their kitchens. The New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Sandor’s latest book, The Art of Fermentation (2012), received a James Beard award and was a finalist at the International Association of Culinary Professionals. The Southern Foodways Alliance honored him with their Craig Claiborne Lifetime Achievement Award. He’s presented workshops throughout the U.S., and across the whole world in every type of venue including universities, museums, libraries, farms, farmers’ markets, conferences, bookstores, festivals, and community spaces – and now in a bespoke brewing company’s headquarters!
