The General Membership Meeting (In case you missed it)

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

We had a good turnout at the general membership meeting last Thursday at Gilbert Lodge on Twin Lakes. A brief recap of the meeting: our newest board members are Karen Howie and Neill Varner. Board members Rebecca Teahen and Sean Burns ran for third terms and won. The ballot proposal to allow patronage refunds to members passed. We raffled off some fun prizes. Steve Nance, Oryana general manager gave his state of the co-op address. Board president Craig Mulder talked board business. And everyone enjoyed a wonderful feast prepared by Chef Michael and his awesome kitchen staff. So for those of you who missed it, here are photos of our fun annual event:

Deadly Organic Sprouts in Germany – What Will This Mean for Organics?

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

By now everyone has probably heard about the e-coli outbreak in Germany and that it’s the deadliest in history. It was dismaying to learn that the guilty supplier of fresh sprouts was an organic facility.

Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

For all you serious foodies and cookbook collectors out there, a new cookbook has just been released that is selling for about $460 on Amazon. Modernist Cuisine is a 6-volume, 2,438-page set that is supposedly des­tined to rein­vent cook­ing. The lav­ishly illus­trated books use thou­sands of orig­i­nal images to make the sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy clear and engaging.

Cooking Without a Recipe

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

Dinner in my household typically consists of whatever strikes my fancy as I study the contents of the refrigerator. I rarely use recipes these days except occasionally for inspiration when I feel like I’m in a rut. And even then I hardly ever follow the recipe closely; I follow the gist of it and don’t worry if I’m missing some of the ingredients or don’t have the exact quantities.
