“The Shockeys have put together a thorough and masterful work that builds on the theme that education and knowledge are essential. There’s beauty in the idea that you have to share ferments to make them. Because you have to share knowledge, too, to create it. And within these pages, you’ll find a wealth of it.” — David Zilber, co-author of The Noma Guide to Fermentation
 
“Kirsten and Christopher have written a beautifully researched and approachable book for lovers of Asian ferments. This book demystifies the processes and methods for producing foods such as tempeh, miso, and koji, and will enable anyone to make these foods successfully at home or in a professional kitchen. I’ve been waiting for a book of this magnitude and approachability for a long time. I now have something to keep in my kitchen to guide me down the rabbit hole that is Asian fermented foods.” — Jeremy Umansky, larder master, wild food forager, and owner of Larder Delicatessen & Bakery
