Greek country cooking is a paradigm for delicious, healthy, real, and simple food. The Greek kitchen boasts more main course vegetable dishes than almost any other cuisine in the Mediterranean. Many of these dishes have that elusive "craveability" factor, the ingredients and techniques that make for vegetables so luscious and comforting that even kids love them. My own experiences in the Greek country kitchen are rooted in my childhood memories and then, later, on the months I spend every year on Ikaria, a remote island in the eastern Aegean where my family is from and that happens to be a "Blue Zone," one of a handful of places on the planet renowned for the robust longevity of its inhabitants. It is here that I first learned the importance of seasonality, what real food tastes like, fresh from the field or garden, how the profuse use of olive oil and slow, patient cooking together create dishes that are both comforting and wholesome. But I have traveled widely in the Greek country kitchen, well beyond the rocky shores of Ikaria, and in my travels I've discovered the great wealth of regional Greek specialties and local ingredients, most of which are still terra incognita to an American audience, nutritional and flavor powehouses waiting to be discovered. In this talk, I will touch on the importance of vegetable cookery in the Greek country kitchen, how it is tied to the seasons and to local customs; I'll talk about regional Greek cuisines and food products and zero in on a handful of cheeses, olives, olive oils, and more, most of which are available Stateside. I will take viewers on a visual journey through the Country Cooking of Greece, share tips and recipes, and introduce a bevy of great Greek products.

As a busy mom of three little ones, Katie Kimball knows a thing or two about saving time in the kitchen, but she also wants the best of health and nutrition for her family. From yogurt to salad dressing, the Kimball kitchen is filled with homemade foods with nary a box or package in sight. Kimball's blog, Kitchen Stewardship, is focused on balancing nutrition with frugality, the environment with the time available, all as good stewards of God's gifts. Since 2009 KS has offered family-friendly recipes, science geek research into traditional foods and real food nutrition, and lots of helpful tips with a healthy dose of humor and real-life personal experience. A teacher by training, Katie Kimball is well known for her detailed recipes, breaking everything down into baby steps that won't overwhelm even the most nervous newlywed on her first foray into cooking with real food. Her goal is to make whole foods easy (& tasty) for any family to eat day in and day out. The video "introduction" is really a lesson on how to make homemade mayonnaise, something that is pretty difficult to find using only wholesome ingredients. Her Learn It Live course will cover a bit of "reverse engineering" as well - how to make recipes that call for cream of chicken soup completely from scratch using real ingredients.
