There is no Planet B

Call me Tevye. On the one hand… I can say that Organic Consumers Association was being opportunistic by broadcasting their message – COOK ORGANIC NOT THE PLANET – at the “Forward on Climate Rally” to stop the Keystone pipeline held this past Sunday in Washington, D.C.

Dog Days of Summer: Lost in the Food System Maze

Mid August…sigh. Today’s a rainy day with cooler weather and I’m home on a stay-cation this week. I’m feeling that summer’s wave has long crested and I’m on that inevitable slow coast back to the shore called September. Not exactly high energy, yet I do have a GoodFoodWorld article to write. And while I am […]

When Ratatouille speaks…I listen

Wisdom garnered from the tradition of slow cooking.     There is wisdom in this traditional method. It isn’t rocket science to understand, but like all truths, it is profound once you “get it”. This slow method of making Ratatouille is intimate and deeply loving. Why? Because it requires time, presence, and patience. Via this […]
