Praise for Adventures in Bubbles and Brine

What a beautiful window into the culture of fermentation in Nova Scotia! Philip Moscovitch introduces us to old timers carrying on traditions, and to leaders of the province's contemporary fermentation revival. With lots of practical how-to information and recipes, the book also explores much broader contexts, including science, food safety, history, technology, lore, and indigenous traditions. Fermentation is always a manifestation of place, and this book reflects that vividly.
