It all started with the intention to create the best Kimchi in the world. Since then Marcel Kruse’s heart beats for everything that ferments. When he’s not taking food photos or tracking down exotic ferments while traveling, the trained event manager from Berlin shares his knowledge with his co-author at workshops.

Since Geru Pulsinger discovered his love for fermenting, hundreds of preserving jars populate his apartment – some of them for years. The restaurateur and Zen therapist took it via Zurich to Berlin – where he ran a small fermentation restaurant with Marcel Kruse for several years before he moved back to Graz.
