"I love this book! Karen Solomon has spent years exploring the
remarkably varied pickling styles of Asia. This is among the very
best books I've encountered on pickling, and it goes beyond
pickling itself with recipes for foods used in or served with
pickles. Karen's descriptions of technique are clear and crisp, and
her personal tone made me feel as if she were whispering
encouragement in my ear."
-Sandor Ellix Katz, author of The Art of Fermentation
"In this culinary passport to Asia, Karen Solomon helps you discover the delicate flavors and complex spices of pickles you didn't know existed. A delicious roadmap for pickle lovers everywhere!"
-Lauryn Chun, author of The Kimchi Cookbook
"With this book, Karen Solomon has forever updated the American pickle canon. Featuring both truly traditional Asian pickles and her varied and inspiring adaptations, it is required reading for all home preservers."
