Nourishing Traditions Cookbook - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Anyone familiar with this cookbook?

    Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats. ...by Sally Fallon, with Mary G. Enig, Ph.D

    I found it at a (mainly vegetarian) friends house and the information about fats, carbohydrates, proteins, milk, etc. was quite interesting and informative. Basically very anti-processed foods and contrary to much of the conventional wisdom presented by the food processors and their paid researchers. (like promoting eating grass fed meats, butter, organic vegetables, grains, eggs, etc....by knowing where stuff comes from and how it needs to be prepared!)

    I was impressed enough to order copies for each of my kids! It wasn't so much the recipes as the knowledge....at least so far!

    I'll have to look this one up- I have a friend who's had prostate cancer (in his early fifties!) and has been put on a very strict diet to avoid feeding any cancer cells their favorite foods. He has to avoid all processed foods, preservatives, no meat with hormones, etc. Really, it's how we should all be eating, but we don't. It's been a learning experience as far as finding appropriate foods goes.

    The more we can all learn about eating better for ourselves and the planet, the better off we ALL are.

      For a similar and very readable approach, I would recommend the works of Michael Pollan (...........Michael Pollan...........). I just recently finished reding his In Defense of Food (there's a hot link to it on his website) - you may have heard the seven word manifesto of that book: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." The book details how we have gone from eating "food" - which he defines as stuff your grandmother would recognize - to becoming dependant on food-like industrial products. The section on the rise of nutritionism is a particular eye-opener.

        After a little more research I found the following...

        WAPF Basics

        The author Susan Fallon is now president of the organization.......It's very interesting that Price died the day before Susan was born in the very same hospital!

          Don't forget about the KEFIR part! My house is being overrun with the little darlings. Almost as bad as Tribles.
