Sandor Katz and the Tiny Wild (Food Heroes #4)
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Series: Food Heroes

From the award-winning authors of Sibert Honor Book Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix comes a picture-book biography of world-renowned fermentation expert Sandor Katz.

Sandor Katz's love of fermented food started with kosher dill pickles he ate as a New York City kid. As an adult, he left the busy city and moved to a queer community in the mountains of Tennessee. There, his friends grew their own food, cooked and ate together, and sometimes danced in drag when the work was done. One day, the cabbages were all, ALL ready to be harvested. What to do? Sandor tried to make sauerkraut. Delicious! He kept experimenting, finding old recipes, combining old ideas to make something new. Then, he shared what he learned in bestselling books, in classes, and with a growing group of friends around the world.

Written by award-winning authors Jacqueline Briggs Martin and June Jo Lee, Sandor Katz and the Tiny Wild folds timely themes of ecology, community-building, and resilience into a lively biography that closes with a hands-on recipe: just chop, salt, pack, and wait for tiny, wild, invisible microbes to turn raw ingredients into zingy, zangy foods that we love. Sandor believes that making fermented foods connects all, ALL of us on planet Earth--people, plants, and The Tiny Wild. Won't you join Sandor's crew and share your own dash of dazzle with the world?
