WELCOME TO THE KNIFE & FORK

 

THE KNIFE & FORK will be a group open to a broad range of food-related topics. You do not have to be a food snob, an epicure, or a bon vivant to join, participate, or enjoy this group. You just have to have the desire to share and explore old and new information on food and dining.

Discussion topics, articles, and questions can include, but are not limited to:

  • Food history and legend
  • Ingredient recognition, selection, storage, and preparation
  • Your favorite recipes, methods, and tips and tricks
  • Your favorite wines, beers, liquors, or cocktail recipes
  • Health & nutrition information for adults or children
  • Food allergy information, warnings, and replacements
  • Organic foods and pesticide information
  • Sanitation and food safety / preparation
  • Product labeling and government regulation
  • Food and product recalls
  • Culinary and dining etiquette, rituals, and customs
  • Food economics
  • Documentaries, books, cookbooks, and television shows
  • Bizarre or unusual foods and customs from around the world
  • Vitamins & supplements (with which you have direct experience)
  • Diet information (with which you have direct experience)
  • Agricultural or farming practices related to food quality or availability*

 

*For this item, please see Borderline Discussion Posts below.


Borderline Discussion Posts
It is inevitable that there will be some crossover in topics and issues related to food production and consumption. I am not forbidding these topics outright, but there may be a better venue for them. Use your best judgment and post the topic in the group that best fits the focus of the discussion. Please do not cross post the same discussion twice in different groups, as it is against Atheist Nexus policy to do so.

  • If you are interested in food and gardening, it makes more sense to join Godless in the Garden and post your discussions there.
  • If you are interested in how agriculture and modern farming affect the environment, please join Environmental Atheists.
  • If you are interested in socio-economic justice, family farms, and fair trade practices, please consider Consumer Ethics instead.
  • If animal welfare as it relates to food production and consumption is your thing, please join us in Humane Atheists.

Your pie looks so good, and your garden produces so bountifully, I think we will all be inspired to do "food!"

Sentient, go for it!.

Wondering if there is interest in a food topic group.  Last post on this group was Sept 2013.

Food - eating it, cooking, exploring - is a favorite aspect in my life.  Maybe for others here too.

The creator and moderator for this group is long gone.  I don't know where, or why, or how.  Possibly, like Haleys Comet, he'll be back.  Or not.

Meanwhile, if there is interest in a food-related group, I think it would be best to start from scratch.  It's too much hassle to take over a pre-existing group, have partial say in the moderation, and not be able to change existing functions because the originator has vanished.  I've done that.

Unless someone objects, I will ask for approval for a newly reincarnated food group.  I hope you will join me!

I just found a new taste treat!  I wouldn't surprise me if most of you  already know it, but it's Umpqua frozen Blueberry Greek Yogurt.  Yummy!

A few months ago, I remember someone telling me to try frozen yogurt (perhaps greek) in place of ice cream.  Can't remember who or where, but I resisted because my taste for yogurt has become less over the years.  I did try some unfrozen Greek Yogurt that seems to be the rage now, but I was not impressed.

A couple of days ago I was looking for some new ice cream and saw this Umpqua yogurt.  I like their ice cream, so decided to try it.  I chose the blueberry greek and so glad I did!  It tastes much better than any unfrozen yogurt I've ever eaten, and as good as any ice cream.
