Getting local foods to local tables: Part III, a farmer's perspective

Stephanie Turco and Paul Alward decided the Wall Street life was not for them. So they pulled up stakes, bought Veritas Farms, and for 6 years have been bringing the land back to life. They now have 70 acres under cultivation. Scottish Highland and Devon cattle, Gloucestershire Old Spot and Large [...]

Getting local foods to local tables: Part II, options

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Several different models exist for getting local food to your table, all with different compromises between convenience, cost, choice, and opportunity. By paying attention to what all the different models offer, you can cobble together your own local food-distribution system that works for you; never again will you have to [...]

The problem of getting local foods to local tables

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
While some dismiss local food as a luxury item for elitist foodies with too much money and time on their hands, the life-style experiment I've been calling "eat local and laugh' has shown otherwise; local, seasonal food can be a cost-effective nutritional foundation. By combining local, seasonal sources with [...]

Your wine: the (unfiltered) truth

If you're alive, and in North America, and not in AA, and have 1 (or more) relationship(s) of the familial variety, you've probably been engaged in some heavy drinking lately. And power to it, my friend: by now, research has shown that imbibing can be accompanied by all sorts of [...]

In response to Meatless Monday: Veggie pakoras to the rescue
  • Great! I've been keeping Gram flour around, ever since you wrote about panisse in your MA days. Asafoetida is essential for my saag paneer and adds just a little something special. I get mine at a [...]read » fairlingtonblade

Meatless Monday: Veggie pakoras to the rescue

It’s party time, y’all.  Put down that cheese ball and perk up your ears for somethin’ a little bit different on the holiday vittles theme. Instead, let’s tear a page from the book of chaat, the finger-licking savory snacks of India and south Asia.  At the top of my list are [...]

You and me alike, Mr. Grinch!  So, what does a vegan eat for Christmas dinner?  Not tofurkey.  At least not in our house, no one likes it.  So, all of our dinner is homemade, and nothing with the intention of 'replacing' a turkey.  Instead, the dinner celebrates the flavors and [...]

USDA promotes electricity from manure, dairy farmers pledge 25 percent emissions cut

COPENHAGEN--A typical herd of 700 dairy cows can power 200 homes, according to the nation's top farmer, but only about 2 percent of them do that job. The US plans to plug in more cows. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack signed a memorandum of understanding with U.S. dairy producers here today, vowing [...]

In response to We'll do anything to save this planet except give up meat

COPENHAGEN--Tens of thousands have converged on Copenhagen to stop global warming, either through a new treaty or through protests demanding more dramatic measures. Thousands more have come to lobby those people, film them, and write about them. And untold thousands of chickens, cows, and fish have died to feed them, revealing [...]

You can give lovely, relatively inexpensive gifts this year with just a little effort from you and your kitchen.  Even if you don't bake often (or feel intimidated to do so), I have a few easy recipes that will be very well received.  Maybe too well, as I am now [...]

Ever since I started my weekly meatless feature 15 months ago, I’ve wanted to compile a resource list of titles that encompass the diverse and wide-ranging meatless recipe world. With the holiday season in full swing, the requests for kitchen-specific gift ideas have been trickling in, an impetus if there was [...]
