It’s just gotten easier to prepare a feast that more closely resembles the one served at the first Thanksgiving. Take a step back in time, pre-industrialized food, with the Ark of the Ark of Taste Thanksgiving Collection. This collection, available through a collaboration between Slow Food USA and Heritage Foods USA, is for real cooks, foodies, epicureans and gourmands in search of flavor – forgotten flavors.
Bring the whole family to the Sustainable Food & Farm Expo 2014 on Sunday, March 9, 2014, from 10 am – 4 pm, at Audubon Greenwich. Learn about our rich and diverse sustainable food community; engage with organic farmers and chefs, homesteading experts, artisan food producers and retailers at the marketplace; and attend sustainable food talks and tasting workshops.
If Whole Foods Market is your weekly pit stop, you have undoubtedly sped past the case of specialty drinks touting major health benefits and lifelong happiness. Kombucha is one of them.
The health benefits accredited to this sparkling tea range from an increased energy level, strengthened immune system, and metabolism boost to preventing cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative illnesses. So is this the new fountain of youth, or just the latest snake oil?
I was so excited to learn that Seed Savers Exchange partnered with Slow Food USA to offer a 6-pack of Ark of Taste seeds. At $14.95, the Ark of Taste Collection is a budget-friendly gift any backyard gardener would love, especially those who will be excited about growing heirloom foods that are delicious enough to be part of Slow Food’s 200 strong (and growing) collection of rare and endangered foods cataloged in the Ark of Taste.
I rarely indulge in shameless self promotion, but I’m making an exception for Morris Media’ Group’s 2014 Green Awards. I’d love to win a Green Award in recognition of the contributions the Fairfield Green Food Guide (FGFG) has made to create a more sustainable community in Fairfield County. It’s readers like you that can make that happen.
