A lot of people in our culture are not used to cooking at home. They haven’t been taught those skills. They’re not familiar with it, so we try to target that audience and say, okay it’s not that hard. Let’s show you how to do it.

Kayte Young teaches nutrition workshops at Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. We sit in on one of her classes, where students help cook and then help eat healthy dishes.

Two stories from Harvest Public Media today… The FDA wants to create guidelines to prevent any possible terrorist attack on our food system. Then, how Amish farmers are banding together to sell more of the food they grow.

And, St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, so we corn beef brisket and another cut of beef that is maybe a little less traditional.
