“Such is the superiority of rural occupations and pleasures, that commerce, large societies, or crowded cities, may be justly reckoned unnatural. Indeed, the very purpose for which we engage in commerce is, that we may be one day enabled to retire to the country, where alone we picture to ourselves days of solid satisfaction and undisturbed happiness. It is evident that such sentiments are natural to the human mind.” – John Loudon, A Treatise on Forming, Improving, and Managing Country Residences, 1806.

Monuments And Lies

“They (food laboratories and huge food processing facilities) are the monuments to an elitist hierarchy that wants ignorant consumers, an industrial dependent class too afraid and too confused to discover the joy and taste of their own kitchen”. From “This Ain’t Normal Folks”, by Joel Salatin.

Well, we may be a bit ignorant sometimes, but we like to eat. The more we learn of the absurdities of our current, over regulated food system and it’s associated “food police” as Mr. Salatin calls them, the more creative we wish to become in our kitchen.

So, bake some home made bread, from scratch. I believe Henry David Thoreau had something to say about just that, many years ago. Save the planet! Help put a bureaucrat out of business today. Use your kitchen.

Here’s to all home kitchen warriors. Rock on. We salute you!
