Brooklyn Food Conference…

This past weekend I attended a food conference sponsored by “Brooklyn Food Coalition” which was held at Brooklyn Tech High School in the Fort Green section of Brooklyn. It was fantastic. So many aspects of our food supply were discussed.  Cooking demos which covered everything from food substitutes for people with allergies to cooking with essential oils to the making of fermented foods. Their were classes on everything from proper digestion to selecting wholesome organic products. Children were shown easy cooking techniques as well as exposed to practicing yoga.  For the more politically minded there were seminars on how to become more active in determining what foods should be available, as well as what could be done to make a safer environment. I want to thank all who were involved for such a wonderful day and urge all to contribute to the Brooklyn Food Coalition who sponsored this event free of charge to the public.
