For the past 2 years, I’ve been blogging about fermentation on behalf of my small Detroit-based pickle business, Suddenly Sauer.
While food, in general, and fermentation, specifically, are central passions in my life, I felt that more theoretical fermentations (read: thoughts) weren’t as communicable in that space. Thus, I’ve created ShtetlKettle.
In this space I want to think about community and individual identity. My point of entry is Detroit Jewish identity, but I’m in no way limited to any one perspective. I see some of the most poignant inquiries developing out of the borders between identities, and I hope to explore my identity, both personal and communal, with the boundaries (real and imaginary) that we create.
While I plan to post on a weekly basis, I also want this space to be open to any/all those who happen to share in these (rather specific) areas of interest. Guest posts and comments welcome!
I look forward to growing with you!
