Sandor Ellix Katz (born 1962) is a culinary author, DIY food activist and self-described "fermentation fetishist". He has taught hundreds of fermented food workshops around the United States and his book Wild Fermentation has been called a classic, "the bible for people embarking on DIY projects like sourdough or sauerkraut", and "especially notorious for getting people excited about fermenting food". In 2009, he was named one of Chow magazine's top trendsetters and rabble-rousers.
He was the subject of the 2009 song by the punk rock band Propagandhi, "Human(e) Meat (The Flensing of Sandor Katz)," a satirical vegan response to Katz's 2006 chapter on "Vegetarian Ethics and Humane Meat" in The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved.
