Featured Guest – Alan Ward – The Rhubarb Club of Arkansas

If you are interested in going to a Rhubarb Club Meeting here is how you do that:

E-mail Alan Ward at Meetings are every other month and the schedule for the remaining months in 2009 are August 14, October 9, and December 11. They meet at 11:30 at the Unitarian Universalist Church on 1818 Reservoir Road in Little Rock. The price is for the meal and I think is somewhere between $10-$12 and always includes a Rhubarb treat! I have added a Rhubarb recipe that I got at the last meeting for Rhubarb-Black Cherry Jam. Check it out!

This week show is  a repeat from one last year. I loved going to the Diamond Bear Brewing Co.  They have tours on Saturday and you can always call up for a special group tour. This show was so interesting it captured two weeks of show. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

Food Inc. The Movie

So lately I have really been shouting about slow food and buying local. And then my 24 year old daughter, Brennan, (who lives out in the idyllic world of Oakland,CA where going green is the only way to go and buying local is expected ) says, ‘there is not a Slow Food Chapter in Central Arkansas, you should start one!’  As much as I am in favor with The Slow Food Movement, I can not put one more thing on my plate. Also, I think it would be much better served if the Chapter was formed by a real food expert, say a farmer. She also told me about a very cool movie, Food Inc. , that has changed the way she eats and buys food. So, there is lots of press out there right now that looks at what we are eating and where it is coming from. EAT & BUY LOCAL!
