Kirsten K. Shockey and Christopher Shockey are co-authors of award-winning The Big Book of Cidermaking; award-winning Miso, Tempeh, Natto & Other Tasty Ferments; Fiery Ferments; and the bestselling Fermented Vegetables. Kirsten has also just released Homebrewed Vinegar. These books came from their desires to help people eat in new ways, both for the health of themselves and of the planet. They got their start in fermenting foods 20 years ago on a 40-acre hillside smallholding, which grew into their local organic food company. Kirsten realized that her passion lay in the wish to both teach people how to ferment and push this culinary art to new flavors. She leads experiential workshops worldwide and online at fermentationschool.com, helping people to make, enjoy, and connect with their food through fermentation. Christopher is behind the camera.
