It was such a treat to interview Sara Baer-Sinnott, President of Oldways, an organization at the forefront of the sustainable food movement with a focus on heritage foods and heritage food pyramids. Sara shares some sage thoughts about being a parent - she raised 2 children who are now 22 and 24. She reflected that it is a parent's job to raise responsible adults. One way to accomplish this is to make meals a priority!!
Here's a quote from Oldway's mission:
"At Oldways, we are more determined than ever to help everyone, everywhere, live longer and healthier lives. We will do this by continuing to encourage people to seek out the joys and pleasures of good foods and drinks, well prepared and consumed with pleasure, in the company of family and friends. That is the profound and worthy mission that drives us and our partners every day."
Oldways and Heirloom Meals are on a similar journey. Listin to Sara's interview here .
Exciting news: Oldways is launching an African Heritage Pyramid in November - it will get you thinking about your heritage pyramid!!

There are two major Jewish Holidays coming up on the calendar, in fact one starts today at sundown - Rosh Hashanah - the beginning of the Jewish New Year. I am not Jewish but many of my friends and acquaintances are. I wanted to understand the meaning of Rosh Hashanah and then, Yom Kippur which is in 10 days. I know these holidays are steeped in ritual and traditions.
My friend Dottie Weber shares what these holidays mean to her. And, in her next interview, airing on Saturday October 1, 2011, Dottie shares her menus and some recipes.

We tried something a little different for this weeks show. We were asked by Carole Hyatt to participate in her Getting to Next II seminar and share how Heirloom Meals got started.
And we thought that it would be fun to chronicle some of the participants food memories. So enjoy these snippets!!

Michael Tesoro's story is really what Heirloom Meals is all about. After a series of jobs in finance and other fields, Michael found a culinary calling: making marinara sauce in batches and marketing it across New England. Ooma Tesoro's Marinara Sauce is an heirloom recipe from Michael's grandmother, whom they called "Ooma." His grandmother was a wonderful cook, and from her, Michael inherited a passion for food. Ooma Tesoro's is made with whole and fresh ingredients: whole plum tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, fresh onions, fresh garlic, sea salt, black pepper, and a secret blend of herbs. Thanks, Michael for being on the show! Listen here.
