Host of The Gastrocast Cooking Show
As host of The Gastrocast I front the mission of The Kitchen Garden Network--to provided a wide range of quality information on food, farming, and the politics of what we eat. At The Kitchen Garden Network, we believe that escalating interference by government, including increasing levels of legislation and regulation present a major roadblock to achieving a safe, healthy, locally supported and sustainable food supply system.
Current policies favor large-scale industrial agri-businesses. Chemical and drug use in the production of crops and the raising of livestock are at startling high levels. At the same time, labeling issues, supply concerns and many other vital food-supply issues are being controlled or influenced by powerful and wealthy lobbies. In each episode of The Gastrocast--either audio or video--you can learn how to more effectively grow, shop, source and cook what you eat. Along the way we touch on the intersection of food, farming and politics.
For the past almost 5 years I have singlehandedly recorded, hosted and produced this popular Internet show. You can listen to an episode of the show here.
