Exciting research shows that these foods and the beneficial probiotics they contain boost your immune system, increase your energy, and even prevent and heal many diseases, including: Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, brain disease, cancer, depression, heart disease to name a few. It's no surprise that fermented foods are the hottest topic in the field of health right now. The Cultured Cook explains the most common methods of fermenting foods, details why fermented foods transform everyday foods into superfoods, and explores the many health benefits of eating fermented foods on a regular basis. You'll learn everything you need to know to get started fermenting delicious and nutritious foods in your home kitchen.

It will also include delicious recipes including: Thyme Chevre, Fig Cream Cheese, Licorice Kombucha Soda, Spiced Sauerkraut, Cranberry Apple Sauerkraut, Spicy Pickled Beans, White Kimchi, Cultured Curtido (a delicious cultured South American salsa-like condiment enhanced with turmeric and green apple), Fermented Tomato-Chili Salsa, Cultured Hot Sauce, Apricot Chutney, Ginger Beer Kombucha, Cultured Plum Chutney, and Vegan Greek Yogurt. It also includes recipes for using the health-boosting fermented foods such as gluten-free cupcakes with cultured cream cheese frosting, Caesar salad with a cultured dairy-free dressing, Asian noodle bowl with fermented vegetables, gingerbread cookie ice cream sandwiches, and many others. In The Cultured Cook, Dr. Cook will share the exciting research into how fermented foods heal your gut, alleviate inflammation in your whole body (which is a major factor in over 100 health conditions), help you lose weight without dieting, protect you against superbugs (even when they are resistant to antibiotics), help prevent cancer, and so much more. While a few books briefly mention the health benefits of fermenting foods, no other fermented foods book: 1) Delves into the exciting research of the health benefits of fermented foods beyond gut health; 2) Includes vegan yogurt and vegan cheese recipes; or 3) Elevates the flavors of fermented foods to a new and exciting level. Most people know that yogurt (at least the unsweetened kind with live cultures) is a healthy option but few people consider the many other foods rich in beneficial bacteria or yeasts that boost health. The Cultured Cook shares how to make yogurt, including numerous dairy-free options, extols the little-known virtues of this delicious food but goes well beyond that to share The Top 10 Fermented Foods to Supercharge Your Health, which include: cheese (vegan), kimchi, kombucha, kvass, miso, pickles, yogurt, sauerkraut." -- provided by publisher.
