#69 – Fake Food v. Small Farms

Before we read the books that our guest today, Chris Smaje, wrote, we knew we didn’t want a world where fake food, food manufactured in factories was what we ate as a society. We didn’t believe that protein made in stainless steel vats could give our minds, bodies, souls and communities what they need to survive and thrive. But what we didn’t know, is that manufactured protein, fake food or precision fermentation, however you want to term it, literally will not work.… Read More

#68 – Naturally Fermented Dairy in the Home with Robyn Jackson

If you’re bringing raw milk into your home, whether it is through a herd share, shopping from a local raw dairy or co-op, or you have a cow on the back pasture, it is inevitable that we start wanting to value-add that milk; both adding nutritional value to it by culturing it in our homes, and adding monetary value by making raw milk into what would be higher priced items from the store. In this episode Robyn who is the creator over at Cheese From Scratch on Instagram is here to teach us about creating your own cheese starter on the counter at home, and producing naturally fermented cheese in your own kitchen.… Read More

I’m pausing my IG account. . Creating a podcast, writing email notes from my kitchen, helping support the growing Ancestral Kitchen patreon community and trying to write a book on oats. These things (as well as mummying and creating in the kitchen) are enough! . Exciting things come from creating space. . I’d love to stay in touch with you. I am devoted to sending missives from my kitchen via email and creating the podcast, Ancestral Kitchen, with @farmandhearth bi-weekly. You can get both via the link in my profile. . With much love from my kitchen to yours. xx

Beef, pig’s liver, beet, parsley and onion burgers. My son’s latest favourite way to *really* enjoy liver! They are purple, they are tasty, they feel like a treat. Sometimes I even make sourdough buns for them to go in. . If you are cast-iron frying burgers that have liver in them, don’t scrimp on the fat or they’ll stick. I don’t mind not scrimping on the fat…it’s lard, after all :->
