Tamar Adler at the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Brooklyn

             The second in a series of four class from her acclaimed book- An Everlasting Meal.

More to Come  - this is a rough draft

Few books about cooking has been as pleasurable to read as Tamar Adler's An Everlasting Meal.  A review to come but in the meantime- this is a must read, buy a few copies and give to friends.

“a health claim on a food product is a good indication that it’s not really food, and food is what you want to eat.”

Still good information from Michael Pollan and the truth about Soy.  Bad stuff to eat.

As a sidenote:   Trader Joe's food products from milk, eggs, cereal bars consistently rank far below the acceptable level- failing the organic claims it boosts and selling so call quality products in Marketing only.  Shame but I have stopped buying anything from them.  Whole Foods 365 brand name does slightly better and far better than many supermarket names ( much better than Wegmans )   More about this some other time.
