My neighbor Sandor Katz, who is an author of several books on the fascinating subject of cultural revival, hired me to make a back-splash in his new teaching kitchen. In a 150-year-old log cabin on the north side of Short Mountain, he is growing a new home for the Foundation for Fermentation Fervor. Sandor is drawing from the neighborhood stable of creative talent, and rocking out this off-the-grid, solar fueled, spring watered temple to biodiversity. I am grateful to be included in the project.

Sandy is creating a space where the biological cultures and traditions of food preservation from all over the world are cultivated, proliferated, shared, imbibed and celebrated. Here are some photos documenting my little piece of the process.
