Fermented Landscapes applies the concept of fermentation as a mechanism through which to understand and analyze processes of landscape change. This comprehensive conceptualization of "fermented landscapes" examines the excitement, unrest, and agitation evident across shifting physical-environmental and sociocultural landscapes as related to the production, distribution, and consumption of fermented products. This collection includes a variety of perspectives on wine, beer, and cider geographies, as well as the geography of other fermented products, considering the use of "local" materials in craft beverages as a function of neolocalism and sustainability and the nonhuman elements of fermentation. Investigating the environmental, economic, and sociocultural implications of fermentation in expected and unexpected places and ways allows for a complex study of rural-urban exchanges or metabolisms over time and space--an increasingly relevant endeavor in socially and environmentally challenged contexts, global and local.

From wine and beer to bread and cheese: many of our best-loved foods and drinks are the products of fermentation. In Adventures in Bubbles and Brine, fermentation enthusiast Philip Moscovitch takes us on a tour of Nova Scotian ferments, and introduces us to the people who have taken this food trend to heart. Enjoy the fascinating stories from their history and bookmark the recipes they share for you to try at home. Fermenting may be popular now, but its roots in Nova Scotia go back centuries. Early French settlers grew grapes and apples for wine and cider while German immigrants brought their sauerkrautmaking traditions. And now, Nova Scotians are embracing a new wave of flavours, including spicy kimchi, bitter craft beers, artisanal cheeses and the addictively sour taste of kombucha. Featuring photos, anecdotes and easy-to-follow recipes, Adventures in Bubbles and Brine digs into the origin of these foods, while delving into the science of fermentation and gut health, and tells you everything you need to know to start fermenting safely at home.
