The Cultured Club - Dearbhla Reynolds
An excellent book with a very comprehensive range of food fermentation recipes neatly organised, easy to follow and, in our experience reliable. the recipes are desgined to use 1 litre fermenting jars. Fermenting is fun and very easy to do and this book has become a favourite.
Here is what the publisher says:
Gut health is central to a strong immune system that is primed to fight off disease and preserve long-term optimal health. Eating fermented foods can have an extraordinary effect on your body and has been shown to benefit a number of health conditions including IBS and digestive difficulties, sugar/carb cravings, and other inflammatory disorders. Learning the art of fermentation will allow you to become a kitchen chemist and experience the vibrant flavours of foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, fermented salsa, kombucha and kefir.
Fermentation is currently undergoing a huge revival as people recognise its health benefits and seek to learn more about the craft and the science behind it. In The Cultured Club, fermentation expert Dearbhla Reynolds teaches you how to turn simple ingredients into superfoods by using one of the world’s oldest methods of food preservation.

About the Author
It was a natural evolution for Dearbhla Reynolds to step into the role of a fermentation revivalist. She is a cross between an old-school pharmacist (her father’s job) and a home economics teacher (her mother’s job). The Cultured Club started as an open invitation for people to come and join in the fermenting fun when they were ready, as opposed to being forced to eat some sauerkraut at the kitchen table. The teaching began with full gusto in the food inspiration mecca of OX restaurant, Belfast.
