From StoryCooking.com – “Food has a way of transcending circumstances, time and place. My friend Amy Halloran and I read and cooked from @oliahercules book Summer Kitchens today and Amy reminded us of our connections to Turkey Red Wheat, brought to the United States by Mennonite immigrants from Russia then, now Ukraine and how it is part of our daily bread.  I made varenyky two ways – one using my 321 sourdough egg pasta recipe and the other whole wheat dumplings adapted from ilia’s book Summer Kitchens. Amy showed us how to make Pampushky, sourdough garlic bread.”

As then, when you all come together your donation will support World Central Kitchen https://wck.org work to help Ukraine.

Ken Fornataro has acquired extensive knowledge of the science and techniques that have been all but forgotten with the increasing industrialization of food. Still in his teens, he was named Executive Chef at the Hermitage restaurant in Boston.   From there he worked at prestigious and often private establishments around the world where he practiced his craft. He ran the kitchen and catering services for Troutbeck in upstate New York, using locally grown and sustainably sourced ingredients in the 1980s. At Bloomingdales flagship store in Manhattan he ran the Fresh Foods department kitchens that included a line of his own prepared, preserved and fermented foods, as well as daily preparations directed by Michel Guérard, Petrossian, and Marcella Hazen. In the late 80s he was recruited to use his skills and training as a scientist to assist in scientific endeavors to find treatments to fight pathogenic viruses and microbes, including strains of Aspergillus, Bacillus, and other microbes. He collaborated with researchers, clinicians, government and industry to develop new treatments for viruses such as HPV, HCV, HIV, and immune system deficiencies as well. He founded The Access Project with The Kaiser Family Foundation and NASTAD, and The Network with the support of federal, state and corporate partners. He has cooked with Julia Child, Michel Guérard, Marcella Hazan, Aveline and Michio Kushi, Paula Wolfert, Leah Chase, Anthony Bourdain and many other Chefs from around the world that taught him traditional Japanese, French, Jewish, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Nordic, Russian, Indian, and whole food cooking, preservation and fermentation techniques.
