We are counting down the days until #EFC2017, and are excited to highlight this fun new book as part of our community!
The Big Book of Kombucha by Hannah Crum and Alex LaGory of Kombucha Kamp satisfies readers’ kombucha curiosity with practically everything there is to know about this centuries-old beverage. The authors carefully break down the complex home-brewing processes and provide a detailed history and commercial background for this popular beverage. Kombucha enthusiast definitely won’t find a more comprehensive tome on the subject. Nearly half the book is devoted to background, proper technique, and home brewing development practices.
Vibrant graphics and illustrations compliment sharp photographs that bring the recipes to life. Myriad flavor combinations and recipes for mixed drinks, smoothies, sweets, baked goods, and more give readers something to look forward to as they test their newfound kombucha knowledge. Who knew you could make kombucha sourdough cinnamon rolls? Yum!
Walk on the wild side with ultra-creative recipes like scoby “sashimi,” or try something more tame with the refreshing Herbed Tomato and Feta Salad. We especially love the section devoted to condiments—kombuchup, anyone? There are even chapters dedicated to innovative ways to use kombucha in cleaning and beauty products, rounding out the book’s focus on total-body health and wellbeing.
Written as a love letter in text book format, The Big Book of Kombucha painstakingly unpacks the science behind the perfect brew while ensuring accessibility for experienced brewmasters and novices alike.
