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.

@DallasGaytheist Flaxseed oil isn't a cooking oil, its more of a flavoring oil and used for the nutritive properies (omega 3 & 6). You use it like sesame oil - as a "garnish". I use it in smoothies and salad dressings. It has a nutty taste, which is nice in those things.   Keep it in the fridge to keep it fresh.... and always give it a sniff, it can go rancid more quickly than other oils.  Hope that helps.

Has anyone ever cooked with flaxseed oil? If so, did you like it and does it alter the taste of your food?

Last year we were at a unfamilar grocery store and saw a "seafood mix" with the fresh fish. It was hard to tell what most of the stuff was, but the little octupuses were easy to spot. He wanted to get that but I was too chicken. Maybe I will get him a little for his birthday.

I do remember at 14 thinking it was really daring to try calamari and sardines...

I can't imagine a 14 yo wanting mussels. : )
Comment by Dejah Thoris on November 30, 2010 at 4:41pm
Today I asked my 14yo son what he wants to eat on his birthday. Last year he wanted mussels. He suggested Japanese this year. I suggested Thai. He said he didn't care as long as it was something he has never had before. Lol, he sure does take after me.

A Stale Food Fight

THE best opportunity in a generation to improve the safety of the American food supply will come as early as Monday night, when the Senate is scheduled to vote on the F.D.A. Food Safety Modernization bill. This legislation is by no means perfect. But it promises to achieve several important food safety objectives, greatly benefiting consumers without harming small farmers or local food producers.

Well, I finally saw Food, Inc. last night for the first time. It didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know, but damn, it's so aggrevating!
