Zymurgy_XXX : a cooking set using fermentation and the inherent properties of the ceramic material to transform food without the need for electricity or fuel; and whose visual aspects have been left to the power of fermentation and yeast in order to create the glazed patterns covering the ceramic jars.
Humans have used fermentation to produce food and beverages since the Neolithic age. It is considered the oldest metabolic pathway, suitable for an environment that does not yet have oxygen. Yeast, a form of fungus, occurs in almost any environment capable of supporting microbes, from the skins of fruits to the guts of insects and mammals in the deep ocean.
