Sandor Ellix Katz
Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His interest in fermentation grew out of overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition and gardening. It started with sauerkraut. Sandor found an old crock buried in the family barn, harvested cabbage from his garden, chopped it up, salted it, and waited. He’s made sauerkraut ever since, earning the nickname Sandorkraut, even as his repertoire has expanded.
Sandor has explored and experimented widely in the realm of fermentation. His mission is to share information and resources in order to encourage home fermentation experimentalists and propel more live-culture foods out into our culture.
