FMTV - Sandorkraut

Sandorkraut

Runtime: 12m 1s | Release date: 2014

Sandorkraut is an intimate portrait of Sandor Katz, America's foremost fermentation revivalist. A native New Yorker, Sandor abandoned a life in politics in the early '90's after a health crisis. He relocated to an off-the-grid queer community in rural Tennessee, where his love of gardening and an overabundant cabbage harvest led him to make his first batch of sauerkraut. An intense personal obsession with fermented foods was born.

Many of our most ancient and beloved foods - bread and cheese, wine and beer, miso, yogurt, pickles, even coffee and chocolate - are the products of fermentation. Sandor has explored the fermented delicacies of cultures from around the globe for over 20 years, working as an author, teacher, and activist; his third book, 'The Art Of Fermentation', became a New York Times bestseller. Sandor’s expertise and willingness to share has made him an underground hero to home cooks and celebrity chefs alike.

Through rich visuals and warm, informal interviews, Sandorkraut introduces us to Sandor’s life and surroundings in rural Tennessee, his daily rituals of food making, his humor, and philosophy. As Sandor shares his world, he gradually reveals how his connection with the natural processes of fermentation has transformed his understanding of life and death.

I've got the book..now I've seen the author..really enjoyed this film..I love how natural everything is and he's not at all squeaky clean which I like as I'm fermenting veg and doing Kombucha and kefir and my kitchen is starting to look like Sandor's..which is great..I will no longer think I've got to sort my kitchen out..that's how it's meant to look..very organic...and it's true you get such a feeling of being connected and it's what your meant to be doing..I'm just beginning on this road...main reason to get well..this film has really inspired me..gave me "warm fuzzies"...Thank you Xx

This is such a gorgeous wee film and funnily enough I just made my first jar of sauerkraut today!!
Totally agree with what he says about people yearning for connection with the earth again... I literally feel like I "miss" the olden days even though I wasn't there!

This was delightful. All I have been seeing on FMTV are glossy people with high end kitchens and as lovely as that may be, I absolutely appreciate the rustic, earthy quality this too-short video embodies. More of keepin it real, please!

I am Polish and remember how my parents made fermented cabbge after the harvest to last for the whole winter. I would go with my feet into the big tank to squezze the water out. What an experience. The movie reminds me how we used to live 30 year ago :-)
