Fermentation for Beginners

Posted Thursday 24 March 2016 at 1:49pm

Fermentation - Then and Now Fermentation has been used to preserve food for thousands of years. The diets of every traditional society have included some kind of lacto-fermented food.

The Orient is known for pickled vegetables, sauces and kimchi.

Around the World: Italy

December’s Around the World destination is Mexico where, just a couple of weeks ago, millions of pilgrims flooded into the area around Mexico City’s basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the country’s patron saint, to celebrate the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The largest crowd attended on Saturday to fulfil a pledge or a penance, and thousands camped out on the huge plaza at the basilica complex Friday night to be there for Saturday’s mass.  Since 1531, Our Lady of Guadalupe has become the patron saint of the Mexican Republic. Historically and emotionally, the Virgin is deeply…

Posted Tuesday 26 May 2015 at 12:34pm

Inflammation is your body’s response to injury and infection and enables your body to defend itself. We recognise inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, swelling, heat and pain, which signals that a healing response has kicked in. This is completely healthy and the inflammation serves a purpose.  Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, can be dangerous. It’s becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s Disease, says Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D.  Stress, lack of…

Posted Tuesday 20 January 2015 at 2:58pm

Australia Day is just around the corner and we can already smell the steak and snags on the barbie. We all know our go-to favourites for the national cook-up are delicious - think marinated kebabs, lamb sausages and rump steak - but did you know that unprocessed meat is also highly nutritious and beneficial for your health?
