So I was clearing out my inbox and came across an email from Sandor. I though I would share with all of you who are fermenting fanatics like me!

From: [email protected]
Subject: Upcoming Fermentation Workshops

hello friends,

it's high spring in tennessee. every day the forest canopy fills in more, and we have lots of beautiful baby goats prancing about. soon it will be time for me to hit the road again spreading fermentation fervor. the coming months will bring me to north carolina, tennessee, new york, pennsylvania, ohio, michigan, and virginia (dates and contact info below). please come check out my workshops, or forward this to people you know who might be interested.

i'm trying to spend most of my time at home working on my new book. it's (tentatively) called underground food: culinary resistance and revolution in many different flavors. it's been inspired largely by people i have met -- food activists -- over the past few years as i have traveled around talking to people about fermentation.

a lot of what i am writing about is how the small-scale local trade of unadulterated foods has been made illegal, and examples of communities where people are organizing underground markets to exchange local foods, in some cases perfectly legal, in others technically illegal by virtue of laws which favor mass production. i'm looking for examples of this small-scale unauthorized free trade of local foods. please email me with your related stories and experiences. thanks!

if you would rather not receive my periodic mailings, let me know and i will remove your name from the list.

i hope you're having a great spring!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just finished reading WF from cover to cover and I think it's a most amazing book for so many reasons. I'd love to go to Sandor's workshop in Toledo... must make it happen. Yay!

I want to go to this. It would be soooo awesome. Wouldn't it be a hoot if all the MDC fermenting fanatics went?
