Since my collaboration as Chef for Black Walnut Lane Farm Kitchen & Shoppe, preparing foods exclusively for their market stall each week, I have been asked questions about seasoning and spices for our meat products which include: Lamb, Beef, Bison, Wild Boar, Berkshire Pork and …
It’s All About The FOOD and the History!
The general idea of this website is to list good recipes that work for today alongside what may have been popular as far back as the Middle Ages. Our love of Food & Family has always been those binding elements we all have in common and for me to spread the LOVE of food virally if you’ll pardon the pun is a joy!
Of course, it just wouldn’t be me if I didn’t insert my geekified historical references, sardonic wit and my lame attempts at humour, so take everything you read here with a grain of salt (so to speak). Also, this will not be a site that will touch on dieting; this WILL be a site that will focus on the LOVE of food and recipes – some healthy, some perhaps, not so much…so, common sense should be your guide!
The recipes will not always be simple but I will try to keep them somewhat healthy (we can pretend Chicken Fried Steak is healthy, right?). I can guarantee however, they will be satisfying and perhaps even decadent. The idea is to draw inspiration from favourite recipes and understand that we can learn to enjoy food in a whole new light – it doesn’t have to be just good or bad. I am hoping to promote the idea that taking control of your food habits and changing them, can be for the better. It’s OK to LOVE food (even bad food sometimes); we only need to learn to choose wisely and food can be a wonderful way to add pleasure to our daily lives.
So in my effort to spread the LOVE…join me daily and partake in the joys of cooking and eating!
