Look For The Little Non-GMO Label

I probably wouldn’t have noticed if there hadn’t been two of them, but there I was fixing dinner, two cans of food (Tuttorosso tomatoes and Pearls black olives) before me on the counter.  Both sported a little green label that I couldn’t read without my glasses but on which were printed the following words: “Non-GMO Project Verfied.”  What’s this?  A GMO label?  I thought we weren’t allowed to have those.  But no, it’s apparently fine to label your food products as long as it’s not mandatory to do so.

Strolling of the Heifers Seeks Participants in Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship Program

Strolling of the Heifers will offer up to 16 people a chance to enroll in a paid apprenticeship program designed to help them start culinary industry careers.

The Stroll's Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship program is a 12-week program offering training that can lead to permanent food-preparation positions at restaurant and institutional kitchens.

The program is free to participants who meet income employment status qualifications, including veterans. It includes classroom time, as well as on-the-job experience at restaurant and institutional kitchens, for which participants will be paid. 

The aim of the program, says Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers, is to place all participants into permanent culinary employment at the conclusion of the program. "If the participant is successful at completing the course work, we're pretty sure we can successfully place that person," she said.

West Brattleboro Association Chicken BBQ Is Saturday, May 28, 11 AM Till Gone

A Chicken BBQ will be sponsored by the West Brattleboro Association (WBA) on Saturday, May 28th, starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until it's all gone. So plan to get to the event in front of the First
Congregational Church on Western Avenue in West Brattleboro in plenty of time to enjoy chicken and fixin’s. Desserts will also be available.

For $6 you can get half a barbecued chicken, or you can enjoy it with sides of baked beans and coleslaw for $10. The recipes used to make these goodies have a local history. The chicken barbecue sauce recipe is one used for the Guilford Fair Fireman’s BBQ for many years by Joe Jewett when he was a member of the fire department.
