Review: I'd Rather Be Baking

As someone who loves to bake and cook when anxious or upset I really appreciate this zine. The tagline says it all 'Baking escapism to fill your tummy and soul where applicable.' While not a vegan cookbook (as it uses eggs), there is some good information here, like the article on pie crust and the interesting apple-mango pie recipe. The recipe for bread seems very forgiving and easy to approach. 

Here is my favorite quote from the zine... "Baking to me is creating, shaping, forming, it's a way to turn feelings of uncertainty into tangible, useful things."

Review: Fermentation Blogs

I've done my fair share of fermentation experiments over the years, including from kombucha, kvass, and kimchi. I have all of Sandor Ellix Katz's books which are great resources but I also like to delve into the world of fermentation blogs for inspiration and innovation. 
Here are a few of my favorite fermentation blogs:

1. Phickle is a great fermentation blog that has beautiful photos as well as great information. The header is well organized and recipes and information are easy to find. Check out this post on Microbial Terroir

2. Fermup is a blog/podcast combination. The dynamic between the two podcast hosts is a bit... forced but the content is usually interesting. The blog is infrequently updated but the quality of the information presented in the podcast makes this site worth a look.   

3. Home Brew Forum is the first place I check for home brew information as well as kombucha and soda ideas. There is a breath of knowledge here, especially in DIY brewing and gluten free brewing but you'll have to search for it!
