2010-04-06T20:31:34.645+01:00

So pretty! I really want a hive of my own, maybe when I move into the farm house of my dreams. I don't think my apartment would like me anymore if I set one up on the balcony.

Fantastic call to action, Kate. My Millennial kids and nieces and nephews ( in the Midwest!) cook. They are they link - sorry Gen X. As our my grandkids. I've been cooking with and filming my granddaughter (now 6) since she was 3. She can break and separate an egg with the best of them (we make cookies and good things...). Older brother is good, too.
My friends Christina and Bill returned from France and opened a gastropub in Springfield, Mo. (heart of American farmland, Christina's home) The focus: fresh, local, sustainable. Opened at the height of the depression Oct 09 and they are doing great.
We want to eat fresh. We want to eat well. We want to eat.

2010-02-07T09:04:44.430+01:00

I can't speak for all of America, but I plan on teaching the next generation to cook just as my mother taught me. I plan on trying to add to my skills and techniques as well as expand my knowledge of many cultures of cooking in addition to what I already know. I love to cook.. and i generally cook the majority of the week... just like most of the human population I have my days where i am tired and don't have time to cook, so I occasionally go out, but I think it is important to instill cooking into the next generation and not lose those "family" recipes and original techniques of cooking.

2009-10-14T02:34:12.810+01:00

oh... some of us are teaching hoe to cook fresh seasonally and locally too, about the importance of first rate ingredients (which is NOT the same thing as expensive) and the conviviality and civility of family and friends gathering around the table.

2009-09-14T01:11:18.901+01:00

From where I live, my weekly farmers
market is very busy and people are
buying real food to cook. Also we
have many cooking schools around town
and, hopefully, people are using the
skills demonstrated when they cook at
home.

2009-09-10T16:32:46.480+01:00

Kate,

Like ur answer to that article. I do agree with Pollan that may be now only those people who love to cook, cook. And those people who just cant stand to eat bad food. My kids are cooking and tehy know where food comes from. they can make me pancakes for breakfast, omlette for lunch and cake all from scratch and they are only 9 and 10. So I am not worried that the skills are lost or that we wont cook at all

2009-08-20T20:42:23.907+01:00

Merci pour cette excellente blog post!!! Very well written and so timely. Reading your blog makes me look forward to the day when I leave the US to forge a new life in France with my French husband - I look forward to some delicious challenges!

I have been thinking about buying an RV, starting an internet business and being a free spirit for the rest of my life.

This photo makes me want to do it even more now. :)

2009-08-08T19:02:52.965+01:00

I love that photo! It makes me want to live a gypsy life. Live in perpetual summer and go back in time. I think one CAN do that in France.

2009-08-07T13:49:22.195+01:00

Great Post! I have to wait a month until it comes out in Germany, but am lucky to be able to see it with subtitles instead of dubbing.

As a self-taught cook, I have always advocated cooking to everyone I know. It's a way to make something magical, and even if people I have over for dinner don't see me cook, I always explain how easy it is to make things.



I agree with you! As soon as I got home from the ...

2009-08-06T16:42:29.873+01:00

I agree with you! As soon as I got home from the movie I was scouring through Mastering the Art to find out what I was going to make! And I've been teaching my nieces/nephew how to cook and will definitely pass it on to the next generations. If I ever make it back to France again, a weekend at Camont sounds terrific!

2009-08-06T13:39:26.864+01:00

Great post, and I *do* hope to be able to come to France before too many more years go by!

2009-08-06T13:26:51.542+01:00

Bravo!!!!
I loved reading the passion in your words. You are an inspiration Kate.

I'm sharing this on Facebook and Twitter right now!

2009-08-06T07:17:58.360+01:00

Well, exactly, but as an old sage used to say "many were called, but only a few respnded." Terrific and passionate essay, BTW-I was feeling much the same as you when I read that article last Sunday.

2009-08-03T02:40:02.459+01:00

I agree with you completely! Like most so-called foodies, I can't wait to see the movie. Here in our part of California, farmers' markets, good food, good wine, and cooking for others have a high priority. By the way, Michael Pollen is coming to San Luis Obispo in October. Jeanette

2009-07-31T19:23:12.405+01:00

I can't wait to see the film. I quite like director Nora Ephron and was delighted by her character who always cooked in "Heartburn" (also played by the lovely Ms Streep) - loved the book too. Cooking from scratch is begining to have a resurgance here in the UK again - partly through financial hardships. People have discovered the joys of eating real food again.

2009-07-31T17:36:06.541+01:00

right on, Kate. The kids in my "food appreciation" classes are having great fun learning where food comes from and how to cook it. There should be classes like this in every school. We're gearing up for the fall semester and, like you, cooking like crazy out of the garden in the meantime. We have to race to keep up with the okra and tomatoes these days.

2009-07-31T16:16:47.751+01:00

What a great photo.

She is amazing! Brought so much to the foodie world. Before there even was a Foodie world.

In the US anyway. :)

I really enjoy your blog. It doesnt take much to make me want to live in France, but the food - heavenly!!!!

2009-07-27T22:36:26.029+01:00

Wow, Kate! It seems everywhere I read these days people are starting to keep bees!! I haven't done it yet but my husband and I are preparing ourselves. I read several blogs where the folks are trying very hard to raise most of their own food and keep bees also. The time has come for anybody who can to do so! We have started out "small" with chickens and a garden. Anyway, maybe we all can help the problem of CCD. I pray so. If we want to eat, and who doesn't, we should participate.

2009-07-27T10:48:58.878+01:00

"Chrysler Imperial" is the name, just one car model off! Yes, these velour-petaled, deeply perfumed red roses continue to be a spring and mid-summer inspiration. I have now planted a row of them in the "T" Jardin. wish you were here!

2009-07-25T13:09:04.585+01:00

Did you use the same roses that we used to make that delicious rose petal jam? In my mind I called them Cadillac roses, that may or may not be their actual name. I remeber our 'cold food' summer parties very fondly. Stay cool love.

2009-07-21T19:44:01.808+01:00

Oh, this looks delightful! I'm hoping the second flush of blooms this summer will produce enough to try this.

Thank you for sharing! :)

2009-07-10T02:05:10.571+01:00

You write like I dream! -- I stole that line from Gore Vidal. But it's essentially true. Someday my wife and I will make it to the South of France to cook, to share, to dine with you.
