The Noma Guide to Fermentation (Foundations of Flavor) by René Redzepi & David Zilber (Free Download), At noma – four times named the world’s best restaurant – every dish includes some form of fermentation, whether it’s a bright hit of vinegar, a deeply savory miso, an electrifying drop of garum, or the sweet intensity of black garlic. Fermentation is one of the foundations behind noma’s extraordinary flavour profiles.
Now Rene Redzepi, chef and co-owner of noma, and David Zilber, the chef who runs the restaurant’s acclaimed fermentation lab, share never-before-revealed techniques to creating noma’s extensive pantry of ferments. And they do so with a book conceived specifically to share their knowledge and techniques with home cooks.
With more than 750 full-colour photographs, most of them step-by-step how-tos, and with every recipe approachably written and meticulously tested, Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation takes readers far beyond the typical kimchi and sauerkraut to include koji, kombuchas, shoyus, misos, lacto-ferments, vinegars, garums, and black fruits and vegetables. And – perhaps even more important – it shows how to use these game-changing pantry ingredients in 100 original recipes.
Fermentation is already building as the most significant new direction in food (and health). With Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation, it’s about to be taken to a whole new level.
“A significant [marker of] culinary culture. . . . A fresh set of transformative cooking fundamentals . . . [that] make ferments something cooks reach for as readily as salt.”
–The New York Times
“An indispensable manual for home cooks and pro chefs.”
“[A] window into the magic . . . of what is arguably the most famous restaurant in the world.”
–Food & Wine
“The Noma Guide to Fermentation is the scientifically geekiest, the most modern and the most radical [of fermentation guides]. It’s also one of the most illuminating. I’m someone who has all manner of Ball jars and mothers bubbling under her kitchen sink, but this book helped me to finally understand the processes involved. . . . Each recipe is accompanied by ideas for what to actually do with the stuff, bending the mind further to open new food pathways.”
–The New York Times Book Review
“This book on fermentation is the master class.”
–Eater, The Best Cookbooks of Fall 2018
“Poised to become an essential tome in professional and home kitchens.”
–San Francisco Chronicle.
