I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

We can dramatically increase global food availability and environmental sustainability by using more of our crops to feed people directly and less to fatten livestock.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.
—Michael Pollan

Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.
—Craig Claiborne

People who eat according to the rules of a traditional food culture are generally healthier than those of us eating a modern Western diet of processed food.
—Michael Pollan

We Did It! GMO Labeling Passed in Both the Vermont House & Senate

One of the great things about being a Vermonter is that we still believe in citizen representation. Town meetings, knowing your local politicians, it all helps in creating an atmosphere of community. This time, public interest played a huge part in making Vermont one of the first states to take a stand on GMO labeling.

Farmer friends, Will Allen and Kate Duesterberg of Cedar Circle Farm, were the first to tell me the news when the VT State House of Representatives passed the bill. They’d just come down from Montpelier, the state capital, where they’d been part of the discussion about GMO Labeling, when I interviewed them for my book on small farms a little more then a month ago. Their confidence that the state senate would also see their way to doing the right thing was well founded.

Our beloved senator, Bernie Sanders, whose national rhetoric and voting record makes him one of the finest politicians on Capitol Hill, posted the news on his website last week about the decision made by Vermonters on GMO labeling, as follows: 

A Victory in Vermont on Food Labels
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

The Vermont Senate voted on Wednesday to require labels on food containing genetically-modified ingredients. “I am very proud that Vermont is taking the lead in a growing national movement to allow the people of our country to know what is in the food they eat. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world and should exist in the United States,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said. “I will continue my efforts in Washington – against Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations – to pass national legislation on this issue.  In the meantime, it is extremely important that Vermont and other states lead the way,” Sanders said.

In Vermont, the Senate vote puts the state on course to become the first to require labels on genetically-modified foods. The House passed a similar bill last year. Elsewhere in New England, Connecticut and Maine have passed GMO labeling laws, but they won’t take effect unless other states pass similar laws.

In Washington, D.C., Sanders earlier this year proposed an amendment to the farm bill to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically-modified ingredients. The amendment lost, but Sanders said he would continue to press for federal action on food labels.

His proposal would have required the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to report to Congress within two years on the percentage of food and beverages in the United States that contain genetically engineered ingredients.

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools.

Vermont Fresh: A Food and Vegetable HandbookVermont Foodbank Partnered with Salvation Farms & Sterling College to Publish a Fruit and Vegetable Handbook
Did you know that  it’s possible to access information and recipes for 40 fruits and vegetables by checking in with the Vermont Foodbank? Since the last time In The Kitchen With Bronwyn ran our subscription drive last February, the Vermont Foodbook has published a ninety-eight page online booklet, Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook that can be downloaded as a pdf.

This is a great resource guide with descriptions of each fruit and vegetable and multiple recipes  including Cantaloupe Salsa, Borscht, Blueberry Smoothies, Quinoa Asparagus Salad, and Pasta with Lemon-Mint Butter and Fresh Peas. Hummm…they all sound so good!

Both Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization in Morrisville, VT, dedicated to promoting the benefits of farm life, and Sterling College, the special agricultural college in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with the Vermont Foodbank to compile the recipes and make the handbook available both online and in print. What a wonderful example of the food community providing talent and energy to create a new “value added” offering available from my favorite non-profit.

International Association of Culinary Professionals logo

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here's what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature "Blog Roll of the Dice" :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

The journalist, now novelist, Jean Zimmerman and I have one thing in common: we read obituaries. And, through the magic of Facebook we connected over the death of a remarkable woman, Yvonne Brill. Have you ever heard of her? No? Well, you’re in good company… neither had Jean and neither had I, but there she was on March 31st in the good, grey New York Times being eulogized by veteran Times reporter, Douglas Martin.

Yvonne Brill with President Obama

YVONNE BRILL, A PIONEERING ROCKET SCIENTIST
The heading was, Yvonne Brill, A Pioneering Rocket Scientist, Dies at 88. Jean—whose books include, Breaking With Tradition, Women and Work: The New Facts of Life, about the truth of the “mommy track,” and, Tailspin: Women at War in The Wake of Tailhook—is not afraid to blow the whistle on a still-male chauvinist world. Like me, she was aghast at the fact that the obituary writer had decided in all his wisdom that the talent to mention first about this award-winning scientist was her cooking. 

Jean’s blog post read, “The problem was the lead of the obit. It went like this: she made a mean beef stroganoff….” referring to Yvonne Brill’s talents. Jean then went on to muse about her own obituary, “I make a pretty good biscuit. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead.” And then Jean couldn’t help but add to her own imaginary obit, “ And she wrote some too….” 

I'M ALL INTO PROMOTING GOOD HOME COOKING, BUT...
She had me from “beef stroganoff," of course. Having read the same obituary, it was my own outrage that a major rocket scientist who had been honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Technology was not to be known first by her many extraordinary efforts as a scientist, but by the fact that her family liked the way she cooked. I’m all into promoting good home cooking, but let’s not go that far! A woman who helped make space travel possible should not be known first by her culinary expertise. At least that’s what Jean and I think. 

IN HONOR OF YVONNE BRILL
Nevertheless, I loved the fact that Jean and I also share a love of food. Jean’s post ended with a recipe for Pretty Good Biscuits. Here is the recipe, in honor of Yvonne Brill, a woman who couldn’t get an engineering job because she was a woman, saved her boss’s career at NASA because of her talents in the profession, and in doing so made the United States space program possible.

A Bientot,

JEAN ZIMMERMAN'S PRETTY GOOD BISCUITS
Originally posted on jeanzimmerman.com. 

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1.5 tsp salt
6 T butter
6 T shortening
1.5 cups milk

Preheat oven to 450. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening (best if you use lard, especially leaf lard). Stir in milk with a fork until the dough mostly hangs together. (Here’s where you add that love.)

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!

A Victory in Vermont on Food Labels Wednesday, April 16, 2014
The Vermont Senate voted on Wednesday to require labels on food containing genetically-modified ingredients. “I am very proud that Vermont is taking the lead in a growing national movement to allow the people of our country to know what is in the food they eat. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world and should exist in the United States,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said. “I will continue my efforts in Washington – against Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations – to pass national legislation on this issue.  In the meantime, it is extremely important that Vermont and other states lead the way,” Sanders said. In Vermont, the Senate vote puts the state on course to become the first to require labels on genetically-modified foods. The House passed a similar bill last year. Elsewhere in New England, Connecticut and Maine have passed GMO labeling laws, but they won’t take effect unless other states pass similar laws. In Washington, D.C., Sanders earlier this year proposed an amendment to the farm bill to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically-modified ingredients. The amendment lost, but Sanders said he would continue to press for federal action on food labels. His proposal would have required the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to report to Congress within two years on the percentage of food and beverages in the United States that contain genetically engineered ingredients."

The Cellars at Jasper Hill’s New Role: Teaching the Craft of Cheese Making

Laurant Mons at the Cellars at Jasper Hill

Laurent Mons sniffing cheese at the Cellars at Jasper Hill

My friends at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Mateo and Andy Kehler, have always been interested in educating about cheese making, but now they have teamed up with Sterling College to offer courses in the craft they excel at –creating great cheeses!

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools. Take a look at the information on the latest food venture in the Northeast Kingdom, another example of Vermont’s leadership in the new food movement spreading across the United States. See the details in the Cellars at Jasper Hill’s latest newsletter.

Vermont Fresh: A Food and Vegetable HandbookVermont Foodbank Partnered with Salvation Farms & Sterling College to Publish a Fruit and Vegetable Handbook
Did you know that  it’s possible to access information and recipes for 40 fruits and vegetables by checking in with the Vermont Foodbank? Since the last time In The Kitchen With Bronwyn ran our subscription drive last February, the Vermont Foodbook has published a ninety-eight page online booklet, Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook that can be downloaded as a pdf.

This is a great resource guide with descriptions of each fruit and vegetable and multiple recipes  including Cantaloupe Salsa, Borscht, Blueberry Smoothies, Quinoa Asparagus Salad, and Pasta with Lemon-Mint Butter and Fresh Peas. Hummm…they all sound so good!

Both Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization in Morrisville, VT, dedicated to promoting the benefits of farm life, and Sterling College, the special agricultural college in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with the Vermont Foodbank to compile the recipes and make the handbook available both online and in print. What a wonderful example of the food community providing talent and energy to create a new “value added” offering available from my favorite non-profit.

International Association of Culinary Professionals logo

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here's what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature "Blog Roll of the Dice" :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

The journalist, now novelist, Jean Zimmerman and I have one thing in common: we read obituaries. And, through the magic of Facebook we connected over the death of a remarkable woman, Yvonne Brill. Have you ever heard of her? No? Well, you’re in good company… neither had Jean and neither had I, but there she was on March 31st in the good, grey New York Times being eulogized by veteran Times reporter, Douglas Martin.

Yvonne Brill with President Obama

YVONNE BRILL, A PIONEERING ROCKET SCIENTIST
The heading was, Yvonne Brill, A Pioneering Rocket Scientist, Dies at 88. Jean—whose books include, Breaking With Tradition, Women and Work: The New Facts of Life, about the truth of the “mommy track,” and, Tailspin: Women at War in The Wake of Tailhook—is not afraid to blow the whistle on a still-male chauvinist world. Like me, she was aghast at the fact that the obituary writer had decided in all his wisdom that the talent to mention first about this award-winning scientist was her cooking. 

Jean’s blog post read, “The problem was the lead of the obit. It went like this: she made a mean beef stroganoff….” referring to Yvonne Brill’s talents. Jean then went on to muse about her own obituary, “I make a pretty good biscuit. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead.” And then Jean couldn’t help but add to her own imaginary obit, “ And she wrote some too….” 

I'M ALL INTO PROMOTING GOOD HOME COOKING, BUT...
She had me from “beef stroganoff," of course. Having read the same obituary, it was my own outrage that a major rocket scientist who had been honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Technology was not to be known first by her many extraordinary efforts as a scientist, but by the fact that her family liked the way she cooked. I’m all into promoting good home cooking, but let’s not go that far! A woman who helped make space travel possible should not be known first by her culinary expertise. At least that’s what Jean and I think. 

IN HONOR OF YVONNE BRILL
Nevertheless, I loved the fact that Jean and I also share a love of food. Jean’s post ended with a recipe for Pretty Good Biscuits. Here is the recipe, in honor of Yvonne Brill, a woman who couldn’t get an engineering job because she was a woman, saved her boss’s career at NASA because of her talents in the profession, and in doing so made the United States space program possible.

A Bientot,

JEAN ZIMMERMAN'S PRETTY GOOD BISCUITS
Originally posted on jeanzimmerman.com. 

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1.5 tsp salt
6 T butter
6 T shortening
1.5 cups milk

Preheat oven to 450. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening (best if you use lard, especially leaf lard). Stir in milk with a fork until the dough mostly hangs together. (Here’s where you add that love.)

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!

My friends at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Mateo and Andy Kehler, have always been interested in educating about cheese making, but now they have teamed up with Sterling College to offer courses in the craft they excel at –creating great cheeses!

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools. Take a look at the information on the latest food venture in the Northeast Kingdom, another example of Vermont’s leadership in the new food movement spreading across the United States. See the details in the Cellars at Jasper Hill's latest newsletter.

One of the great things about being a Vermonter is that we still believe in citizen representation. Town meetings, knowing your local politicians, it all helps in creating an atmosphere of community. This time, public interest played a huge part in making Vermont one of the first states to take a stand on GMO labeling.

Farmer friends, Will Allen and Kate Duesterberg of Cedar Circle Farm, were the first to tell me the news when the VT State House of Representatives passed the bill. They’d just come down from Montpelier, the state capital, where they’d been part of the discussion about GMO Labeling, when I interviewed them for my book on small farms a little more then a month ago. Their confidence that the state senate would also see their way to doing the right thing was well founded.

Our beloved senator, Bernie Sanders, whose national rhetoric and voting record makes him one of the finest politicians on Capitol Hill, posted the news on his website last week about the decision made by Vermonters on GMO labeling, as follows: 
A Victory in Vermont on Food Labels Wednesday, April 16, 2014
The Vermont Senate voted on Wednesday to require labels on food containing genetically-modified ingredients. “I am very proud that Vermont is taking the lead in a growing national movement to allow the people of our country to know what is in the food they eat. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world and should exist in the United States,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said. “I will continue my efforts in Washington – against Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations – to pass national legislation on this issue.  In the meantime, it is extremely important that Vermont and other states lead the way,” Sanders said. In Vermont, the Senate vote puts the state on course to become the first to require labels on genetically-modified foods. The House passed a similar bill last year. Elsewhere in New England, Connecticut and Maine have passed GMO labeling laws, but they won’t take effect unless other states pass similar laws. In Washington, D.C., Sanders earlier this year proposed an amendment to the farm bill to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically-modified ingredients. The amendment lost, but Sanders said he would continue to press for federal action on food labels. His proposal would have required the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to report to Congress within two years on the percentage of food and beverages in the United States that contain genetically engineered ingredients."

My friends at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Mateo and Andy Kehler, have always been interested in educating about cheese making, but now they have teamed up with Sterling College to offer courses in the craft they excel at –creating great cheeses!

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools. Take a look at the information on the latest food venture in the Northeast Kingdom, another example of Vermont’s leadership in the new food movement spreading across the United States.

Vermont Fresh: A Food and Vegetable HandbookVermont Foodbank Partnered with Salvation Farms & Sterling College to Publish a Fruit and Vegetable Handbook
Did you know that  it’s possible to access information and recipes for 40 fruits and vegetables by checking in with the Vermont Foodbank? Since the last time In The Kitchen With Bronwyn ran our subscription drive last February, the Vermont Foodbook has published a ninety-eight page online booklet, Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook that can be downloaded as a pdf.

This is a great resource guide with descriptions of each fruit and vegetable and multiple recipes  including Cantaloupe Salsa, Borscht, Blueberry Smoothies, Quinoa Asparagus Salad, and Pasta with Lemon-Mint Butter and Fresh Peas. Hummm…they all sound so good!

Both Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization in Morrisville, VT, dedicated to promoting the benefits of farm life, and Sterling College, the special agricultural college in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with the Vermont Foodbank to compile the recipes and make the handbook available both online and in print. What a wonderful example of the food community providing talent and energy to create a new “value added” offering available from my favorite non-profit.

International Association of Culinary Professionals logo

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here's what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature "Blog Roll of the Dice" :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

The journalist, now novelist, Jean Zimmerman and I have one thing in common: we read obituaries. And, through the magic of Facebook we connected over the death of a remarkable woman, Yvonne Brill. Have you ever heard of her? No? Well, you’re in good company… neither had Jean and neither had I, but there she was on March 31st in the good, grey New York Times being eulogized by veteran Times reporter, Douglas Martin.

Yvonne Brill with President Obama

YVONNE BRILL, A PIONEERING ROCKET SCIENTIST
The heading was, Yvonne Brill, A Pioneering Rocket Scientist, Dies at 88. Jean—whose books include, Breaking With Tradition, Women and Work: The New Facts of Life, about the truth of the “mommy track,” and, Tailspin: Women at War in The Wake of Tailhook—is not afraid to blow the whistle on a still-male chauvinist world. Like me, she was aghast at the fact that the obituary writer had decided in all his wisdom that the talent to mention first about this award-winning scientist was her cooking. 

Jean’s blog post read, “The problem was the lead of the obit. It went like this: she made a mean beef stroganoff….” referring to Yvonne Brill’s talents. Jean then went on to muse about her own obituary, “I make a pretty good biscuit. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead.” And then Jean couldn’t help but add to her own imaginary obit, “ And she wrote some too….” 

I'M ALL INTO PROMOTING GOOD HOME COOKING, BUT...
She had me from “beef stroganoff," of course. Having read the same obituary, it was my own outrage that a major rocket scientist who had been honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Technology was not to be known first by her many extraordinary efforts as a scientist, but by the fact that her family liked the way she cooked. I’m all into promoting good home cooking, but let’s not go that far! A woman who helped make space travel possible should not be known first by her culinary expertise. At least that’s what Jean and I think. 

IN HONOR OF YVONNE BRILL
Nevertheless, I loved the fact that Jean and I also share a love of food. Jean’s post ended with a recipe for Pretty Good Biscuits. Here is the recipe, in honor of Yvonne Brill, a woman who couldn’t get an engineering job because she was a woman, saved her boss’s career at NASA because of her talents in the profession, and in doing so made the United States space program possible.

A Bientot,

JEAN ZIMMERMAN'S PRETTY GOOD BISCUITS
Originally posted on jeanzimmerman.com. 

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1.5 tsp salt
6 T butter
6 T shortening
1.5 cups milk

Preheat oven to 450. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening (best if you use lard, especially leaf lard). Stir in milk with a fork until the dough mostly hangs together. (Here’s where you add that love.)

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!

Bronwyn Jones Dunne Selected by IACP as Featured Blogger

 

International Association of Culinary Professionals logo

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here’s what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature “Blog Roll of the Dice” :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

One of the great things about being a Vermonter is that we still believe in citizen representation. Town meetings, knowing your local politicians, it all helps in creating an atmosphere of community. This time, public interest played a huge part in making Vermont one of the first states to take a stand on GMO labeling.

Farmer friends, Will Allen and Kate Duesterberg of Cedar Circle Farm, were the first to tell me the news when the VT State House of Representatives passed the bill. They’d just come down from Montpelier, the state capital, where they’d been part of the discussion about GMO Labeling, when I interviewed them for my book on small farms a little more then a month ago. Their confidence that the state senate would also see their way to doing the right thing was well founded.

Our beloved senator, Bernie Sanders, whose national rhetoric and voting record makes him one of the finest politicians on Capitol Hill, posted the news on his website last week about the decision made by Vermonters on GMO labeling, as follows: 
A Victory in Vermont on Food Labels Wednesday, April 16, 2014
The Vermont Senate voted on Wednesday to require labels on food containing genetically-modified ingredients. “I am very proud that Vermont is taking the lead in a growing national movement to allow the people of our country to know what is in the food they eat. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world and should exist in the United States,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said. “I will continue my efforts in Washington – against Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations – to pass national legislation on this issue.  In the meantime, it is extremely important that Vermont and other states lead the way,” Sanders said. In Vermont, the Senate vote puts the state on course to become the first to require labels on genetically-modified foods. The House passed a similar bill last year. Elsewhere in New England, Connecticut and Maine have passed GMO labeling laws, but they won’t take effect unless other states pass similar laws. In Washington, D.C., Sanders earlier this year proposed an amendment to the farm bill to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically-modified ingredients. The amendment lost, but Sanders said he would continue to press for federal action on food labels. His proposal would have required the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to report to Congress within two years on the percentage of food and beverages in the United States that contain genetically engineered ingredients."

My friends at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Mateo and Andy Kehler, have always been interested in educating about cheese making, but now they have teamed up with Sterling College to offer courses in the craft they excel at –creating great cheeses!

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools. Take a look at the information on the latest food venture in the Northeast Kingdom, another example of Vermont’s leadership in the new food movement spreading across the United States. See the details in the Cellars at Jasper Hill's latest newsletter.

Vermont Fresh: A Food and Vegetable HandbookVermont Foodbank Partnered with Salvation Farms & Sterling College to Publish a Fruit and Vegetable Handbook
Did you know that  it’s possible to access information and recipes for 40 fruits and vegetables by checking in with the Vermont Foodbank? Since the last time In The Kitchen With Bronwyn ran our subscription drive last February, the Vermont Foodbook has published a ninety-eight page online booklet, Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook that can be downloaded as a pdf.

This is a great resource guide with descriptions of each fruit and vegetable and multiple recipes  including Cantaloupe Salsa, Borscht, Blueberry Smoothies, Quinoa Asparagus Salad, and Pasta with Lemon-Mint Butter and Fresh Peas. Hummm…they all sound so good!

Both Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization in Morrisville, VT, dedicated to promoting the benefits of farm life, and Sterling College, the special agricultural college in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with the Vermont Foodbank to compile the recipes and make the handbook available both online and in print. What a wonderful example of the food community providing talent and energy to create a new “value added” offering available from my favorite non-profit.

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here's what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature "Blog Roll of the Dice" :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

The journalist, now novelist, Jean Zimmerman and I have one thing in common: we read obituaries. And, through the magic of Facebook we connected over the death of a remarkable woman, Yvonne Brill. Have you ever heard of her? No? Well, you’re in good company… neither had Jean and neither had I, but there she was on March 31st in the good, grey New York Times being eulogized by veteran Times reporter, Douglas Martin.

Yvonne Brill with President Obama

YVONNE BRILL, A PIONEERING ROCKET SCIENTIST
The heading was, Yvonne Brill, A Pioneering Rocket Scientist, Dies at 88. Jean—whose books include, Breaking With Tradition, Women and Work: The New Facts of Life, about the truth of the “mommy track,” and, Tailspin: Women at War in The Wake of Tailhook—is not afraid to blow the whistle on a still-male chauvinist world. Like me, she was aghast at the fact that the obituary writer had decided in all his wisdom that the talent to mention first about this award-winning scientist was her cooking. 

Jean’s blog post read, “The problem was the lead of the obit. It went like this: she made a mean beef stroganoff….” referring to Yvonne Brill’s talents. Jean then went on to muse about her own obituary, “I make a pretty good biscuit. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead.” And then Jean couldn’t help but add to her own imaginary obit, “ And she wrote some too….” 

I'M ALL INTO PROMOTING GOOD HOME COOKING, BUT...
She had me from “beef stroganoff," of course. Having read the same obituary, it was my own outrage that a major rocket scientist who had been honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Technology was not to be known first by her many extraordinary efforts as a scientist, but by the fact that her family liked the way she cooked. I’m all into promoting good home cooking, but let’s not go that far! A woman who helped make space travel possible should not be known first by her culinary expertise. At least that’s what Jean and I think. 

IN HONOR OF YVONNE BRILL
Nevertheless, I loved the fact that Jean and I also share a love of food. Jean’s post ended with a recipe for Pretty Good Biscuits. Here is the recipe, in honor of Yvonne Brill, a woman who couldn’t get an engineering job because she was a woman, saved her boss’s career at NASA because of her talents in the profession, and in doing so made the United States space program possible.

A Bientot,

JEAN ZIMMERMAN'S PRETTY GOOD BISCUITS
Originally posted on jeanzimmerman.com. 

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1.5 tsp salt
6 T butter
6 T shortening
1.5 cups milk

Preheat oven to 450. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening (best if you use lard, especially leaf lard). Stir in milk with a fork until the dough mostly hangs together. (Here’s where you add that love.)

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!

    What a wonderful honor. Congratulations, Bronwyn!

  2. Bronwyn says:

    Thank you, Jen. I think it’s the subject. Farm to School is a wonderful concept and when I see the effect on students -their enthusiasm and interest- I think we could save the world with small farms!

  3. Will Bailey says:

    Once again, at the forefront. This is quite an honor. Your blog writing is taking off as it should.

  4. Thank you , Will I’m proud of what we’re doing with the blog!

  5. Congratulations Bronwyn! Well deserved applause to you and the blog…I agree that small farms are going to be the saving grace of Vermont, at the least!

  6. Kathleen says:

    That’s fabulous Bronwyn! Maybe you’d be interested in the programs at Green Mountain College in Poultney. A young man I know went there and then went on to intern on farms in Europe last summer after graduation. He interned on some VT farms during the program. Don’t know what’s next in his life, but I know it sure wasn’t part of the curriculum when I was in college. Another son of one of our friends has become a butcher, working in New Haven. There seems to be SO much going on in the 20 something generation!

  7. So nice to hear from friends who care about the farm and school connection! Thank you Christine and Kathleen. I’m really happy that the IACP promotion can help to bring the story to more people.

  8. Margo Davis says:

    So great, Bron. I remember returning on a plane with you from Paris almost exactly two years ago and you were deep in concentration…designing the logos etc for this Blog! You have accomplished so much in a short time.

  9. Bronwyn says:

    Oh my goodness! It seems as though that was almost another lifetime! If I compare notes, I have to mention your great new photograph exhibition opening at the end of the month in Antiqua. Remember how we toured Paris Photo? I think that trip was full of inspiration….

  10. Polly Connell says:

    That’s wonderful news, Bronwyn, and quite an honor – well deserved!

    Polly

  11. Lee Merkle-Raymond says:

    Bronwyn, Congratulations on your blog selection! I enjoy your Friday posts and being connected to Vermont through your posts. Lee

  12. Now this is beginning to sound like a real conversation. Thank you, Lee for your kind words. It’s so nice to think of you reading the posts so far away…I will email you so I can catch up with what you’re doing!

  13. Dawn Philibert says:

    Congratulations Bronwyn- a real honor for you and it is reflective of your fabulous blog and hard work. Class act. You are the best. Hope you are well. Have a good Thanksgiving. Dawn

  14. Joan Kieran says:

    Congratulations on a wonderful award, Bronwyn!! We’re a proud neighbor!

  15. Bronwyn says:

    Thank you so much, Dawn and Joan! I hope the promotion by IACP will mean that more people will read about the interesting farm programs going on in Vermont. They really make a difference!

  16. Vera Chang says:

    Warm congratulations, Bronwyn! How exciting and well deserved!

  17. Janet Biehl says:

    So glad that people in the food world are noticing your terrific blog. Congrats, amiga!

  18. Lisa Farrell says:

    Congratulations, Bronwyn! Quite an honor that will help raise awareness about VT’s forward-thinking food initiatives.

One of the great things about being a Vermonter is that we still believe in citizen representation. Town meetings, knowing your local politicians, it all helps in creating an atmosphere of community. This time, public interest played a huge part in making Vermont one of the first states to take a stand on GMO labeling.

Farmer friends, Will Allen and Kate Duesterberg of Cedar Circle Farm, were the first to tell me the news when the VT State House of Representatives passed the bill. They’d just come down from Montpelier, the state capital, where they’d been part of the discussion about GMO Labeling, when I interviewed them for my book on small farms a little more then a month ago. Their confidence that the state senate would also see their way to doing the right thing was well founded.

Our beloved senator, Bernie Sanders, whose national rhetoric and voting record makes him one of the finest politicians on Capitol Hill, posted the news on his website last week about the decision made by Vermonters on GMO labeling, as follows: 
A Victory in Vermont on Food Labels Wednesday, April 16, 2014
The Vermont Senate voted on Wednesday to require labels on food containing genetically-modified ingredients. “I am very proud that Vermont is taking the lead in a growing national movement to allow the people of our country to know what is in the food they eat. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world and should exist in the United States,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said. “I will continue my efforts in Washington – against Monsanto and other multi-national food industry corporations – to pass national legislation on this issue.  In the meantime, it is extremely important that Vermont and other states lead the way,” Sanders said. In Vermont, the Senate vote puts the state on course to become the first to require labels on genetically-modified foods. The House passed a similar bill last year. Elsewhere in New England, Connecticut and Maine have passed GMO labeling laws, but they won’t take effect unless other states pass similar laws. In Washington, D.C., Sanders earlier this year proposed an amendment to the farm bill to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically-modified ingredients. The amendment lost, but Sanders said he would continue to press for federal action on food labels. His proposal would have required the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to report to Congress within two years on the percentage of food and beverages in the United States that contain genetically engineered ingredients."

My friends at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, Mateo and Andy Kehler, have always been interested in educating about cheese making, but now they have teamed up with Sterling College to offer courses in the craft they excel at –creating great cheeses!

 Open only to professionals, the classes, offered for the first time in January, will continue in May. As well, in June and September, the Cellars at Jasper Hill will be host to Academie Opus Caseus, the professional development subsidiary of Mons Fromager-Affineur, one of France’s fine cheese making schools. Take a look at the information on the latest food venture in the Northeast Kingdom, another example of Vermont’s leadership in the new food movement spreading across the United States.

Vermont Fresh: A Food and Vegetable HandbookVermont Foodbank Partnered with Salvation Farms & Sterling College to Publish a Fruit and Vegetable Handbook
Did you know that  it’s possible to access information and recipes for 40 fruits and vegetables by checking in with the Vermont Foodbank? Since the last time In The Kitchen With Bronwyn ran our subscription drive last February, the Vermont Foodbook has published a ninety-eight page online booklet, Vermont Fresh: A Fruit and Vegetable Handbook that can be downloaded as a pdf.

This is a great resource guide with descriptions of each fruit and vegetable and multiple recipes  including Cantaloupe Salsa, Borscht, Blueberry Smoothies, Quinoa Asparagus Salad, and Pasta with Lemon-Mint Butter and Fresh Peas. Hummm…they all sound so good!

Both Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization in Morrisville, VT, dedicated to promoting the benefits of farm life, and Sterling College, the special agricultural college in the Northeast Kingdom, partnered with the Vermont Foodbank to compile the recipes and make the handbook available both online and in print. What a wonderful example of the food community providing talent and energy to create a new “value added” offering available from my favorite non-profit.

International Association of Culinary Professionals logo

Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals chose my blog as one of three to promote via their blog roll. This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but for a grassroots blog like mine to be chosen by an international organization representing over 3,000 members of a broad segment of the food world, it was a nice tribute. They noted my latest posts on successful farm to school programs as a reason my blog was chosen. That really made me happy!

One of 3 blogs featured, here's what the International Association of Professionals had to say on their feature "Blog Roll of the Dice" :

Bronwyn Jones Dunne, author, food writer and blogger at In the Kitchen with Bronwyn, has a wonderful on-going series about farm to school initiatives taking place in Vermont and Connecticut. If you’re interested in the process of connecting education with farming and the land, then her posts are a must read. See the tribute

The two Farm-to-School posts that were recognized are:

Farm to School – Not Just a Slogan published on Oct 5, 2013
Fairfield Farm at The Hotchkiss School: Where Academics & Agriculture Meet , published on Oct 18, 2013

Stay tuned for a third farm-to-school post in mid-November.

The journalist, now novelist, Jean Zimmerman and I have one thing in common: we read obituaries. And, through the magic of Facebook we connected over the death of a remarkable woman, Yvonne Brill. Have you ever heard of her? No? Well, you’re in good company… neither had Jean and neither had I, but there she was on March 31st in the good, grey New York Times being eulogized by veteran Times reporter, Douglas Martin.

Yvonne Brill with President Obama

YVONNE BRILL, A PIONEERING ROCKET SCIENTIST
The heading was, Yvonne Brill, A Pioneering Rocket Scientist, Dies at 88. Jean—whose books include, Breaking With Tradition, Women and Work: The New Facts of Life, about the truth of the “mommy track,” and, Tailspin: Women at War in The Wake of Tailhook—is not afraid to blow the whistle on a still-male chauvinist world. Like me, she was aghast at the fact that the obituary writer had decided in all his wisdom that the talent to mention first about this award-winning scientist was her cooking. 

Jean’s blog post read, “The problem was the lead of the obit. It went like this: she made a mean beef stroganoff….” referring to Yvonne Brill’s talents. Jean then went on to muse about her own obituary, “I make a pretty good biscuit. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead.” And then Jean couldn’t help but add to her own imaginary obit, “ And she wrote some too….” 

I'M ALL INTO PROMOTING GOOD HOME COOKING, BUT...
She had me from “beef stroganoff," of course. Having read the same obituary, it was my own outrage that a major rocket scientist who had been honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Technology was not to be known first by her many extraordinary efforts as a scientist, but by the fact that her family liked the way she cooked. I’m all into promoting good home cooking, but let’s not go that far! A woman who helped make space travel possible should not be known first by her culinary expertise. At least that’s what Jean and I think. 

IN HONOR OF YVONNE BRILL
Nevertheless, I loved the fact that Jean and I also share a love of food. Jean’s post ended with a recipe for Pretty Good Biscuits. Here is the recipe, in honor of Yvonne Brill, a woman who couldn’t get an engineering job because she was a woman, saved her boss’s career at NASA because of her talents in the profession, and in doing so made the United States space program possible.

A Bientot,

JEAN ZIMMERMAN'S PRETTY GOOD BISCUITS
Originally posted on jeanzimmerman.com. 

4 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
2 T sugar
1.5 tsp salt
6 T butter
6 T shortening
1.5 cups milk

Preheat oven to 450. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening (best if you use lard, especially leaf lard). Stir in milk with a fork until the dough mostly hangs together. (Here’s where you add that love.)

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!

Turn it out on a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll dough half an inch thick and cut with a glass for the size biscuits you want. Bake 10-15 minutes. Invite over some friends. Throw a pig roast. Serve biscuits with sweet butter, jam, honey or ham.

Enjoy!
