    This brings back the memories of the Fermentation Festival in Portland Oregon, Aug 26, 2009. I immediately went home and put up 25lbs of cukes and just ate the first ones today. They are only 1/4 sour so they have a few weeks to go to get really sour (read Dill).

    There was standing room only @ the Portland festival and luckily I got the last book “Wild Fermentation” (
    (which I have had my eye on for several months) and got to talk to the author: Sandor Katz and his favorite dish is, of course, sauerkraut!

    Once again, it’s “choucroutte garniE”, not “garni”.

    I missed the kraut recipe post the first time around. That’s really neat!

    I see plastic buckets in the fest pictures. Are those an OK substitute?

    Flickr says to me, “This set falls outside your current SafeSearch filter.
    You can click through to see the contents if you want.”

    Hey BB, are you sure you linked to the correct “meat fiesta”?

    I had to switch the content rating of my Flickr stream because I took some photos of topless models at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles during Craig Yoe’s presentation of his Secret Identity book.

    Kind of a small room. Sure hope it has good ventilation.

    You must eat your sauerkraut.”

    Gee, thousands of people have viewed my photos of the Suicide Girls but I’m only getting single digit views for my photos of the sauerkraut class. What gives?

    No, it was just me on both, but I looked at those SG pictures a lot.

    Is that woman in the background actually eating directly from her bowl?

    Favorite lunch: cooked red cabbage and bratwurst.

    “The couple that ferments together stays together!” That made me laugh! Thanks, Mark!

    That’s an excellent photo, Mark. The look on the cute girl’s face is great.
