This program is Edible‘s effort to share the basic techniques of cooking – to teach fundamentals (as opposed to recipes), and to encourage each student to share what s/he has learned.  We call that #CookItForward.

The Public Hearth was the brainchild of Edible Iowa publisher Kurt Michael Friese, based on two separate essays he wrote about America’s cooking problem.  You can follow (and contribute to!) the development of the Public Hearth on the Facebook page, and by following on Twitter at @ThePublicHearth.

Meanwhile please share widely, and we hope you’ll join us for the class.

Edible Iowa #31, Spring 2014

Edible Iowa #31, Spring, 2014Dear Eater,

Hard to believe, but here we are starting our 9th year as your go-to resource for the best in Iowa’s local food and drink.  Thank you so much for joining us at the table, there’s plenty for everyone.

We have a couple good recipes for you, and a new writer on the crew named Laura Seether who’s talking up the java at Sidecar Coffee in Cedar Falls’ College Hill neighborhood.  You’ll be impressed with the photography of Marji Guyler-Alaniz, and you get to have a beer in Kalona with Rask & Allen, our intrepid beer hunters.  Nearby, Brandi Janssen takes you inside the healthy school lunch system in the Mid-Prairie school district.

Des Moines wonder-chef David Baruthio is at it again, this time with a new pizza joint, and Renee Brincks returns with a new edition of “The 99” up in the Driftless Region.

Ben Vivant brings some Cocktail Culture, Bob Saar will help you keep warm on a rainy spring day with Two Jay’s Corn Whiskey, and Katie Roche has the scoop on Scott Koepke and Soilmates in Iowa City.

We’re also launching a new regular column, The Public Hearth, which is an effort to inspire people … Read More

Sneak Peek: Winter 2013 – The Origins of Eggnog

eggnog Winter is here in earnest, and this always gets me thinking about the ultimate holiday beverage, eggnog. Now I’m not talking about the stuff you get in the carton from the convenience store, I mean honest-to- goodness homemade nog with plenty of fat and plenty of booze.

Now of course this writer does not condone getting all schnockered on eggnog. Moderation is even more the watchword here since the blend of spices, fat, sugar and booze will not only make you unable to drive if you over-indulge but also carry a whiz-banger of a hangover as penance. As with all booze, be responsible.

Of course a nog can be made without the booze, but then not only is it alcohol-free, it is also missing a certain depth of flavor that really makes it warm the heart around the holidays. So I say spike it hard but drink it sparingly.

But what really makes a nog a nog? The rum does. It is a fairly common misconception that eggnog is a tradition imported from Europe. While it’s true that in colonial times their were some popular egg-and-wine drinks that came from the old world, it was the Yankees who developed the … Read More
