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.

Food & Wine Trends
The Best of Think - With trends in community-supported agriculture and a resurgence of the good food movement, where is cuisine headed these days? We'll revisit our February conversation with Amy Albert this hour. She's Senior Associate Editor of Bon Appetit.

I haven't had a chance to listen to this yet. Podcasts are posted online for only about 2 weeks, so listen soon if you're interested. - DG

One Man's Search for the World's Tastiest Beef
What's your favorite cut of beef to throw on the grill? What delivers the perfect taste - corn or grass - and how should you cook it? We'll find out this hour with Mark Schatzker, author of the new book "Steak: One Man's Search for the World's Tastiest Piece of Beef" (Viking, 2010). Stephen Becker will guest host.

Some have the rule that if you cook, the other person cleans. Which is why I usually volunteer to cook!

Welcome Susan, and all you other new members who have joined lately. Please jump right in.
Comment by Dejah Thoris on July 6, 2010 at 8:53am
Hi Susan--welcome. I really hate the cleanup after cooking as well. Which is why my kids do it! :)

@ Sarah: Yeah, I'm a busy body! : )

Actually, I just left about 10 or more groups a few weeks ago. I have fun on sites like this, but it does get overwhelming.

Hi Sarah, welcome to the group. Yes, things go up and down around here. People come and go, too. I spread myself pretty thin these days, so I haven't posted much lately. Like Jaume said, some of us are running out of ideas. Please contribute whatever you'd like. Your breakfast sounded yummy.
Comment by Jaume on June 24, 2010 at 8:18am
It was very active for a few months, maybe too much: it seems we're running short of ideas. Will you give us some?
Comment by andrew bell on May 14, 2010 at 11:25am
i like cooking just because i know at the end of it i will get to eat it
Comment by A Former Member on May 11, 2010 at 6:02pm
Heh! Dunno, but what a match that would be.
