This is James Read's first book on all things fermented and bacterial. Quirky, brilliantly written and conceived and fantastically illustrated by Marija Tiurina.

Delightfully enthusiastic ... James Read writes about these "fizzy foods" with a spirit of humorous exploration, an atmosphere reinforced by the book's surreal illustrations from Marija Tiurina ... There are already several excellent books about fermentation, but Read brings a freshness to the subject, which gave me an itch to do more of it... This one is a hit. Bee Wilson, Financial Times

Lovely... delightful... enchanting. Nigella Lawson
