At The Wise Traditions Conference in Portland, Oregon

Note from Shannon: Please welcome Jerri Nall, CFH Customer Service Representative and Cultured Kitchen-Keeper.

I am pretty sure I work for the best company, ever. Where else can I talk about culturing food all day long, educating people passionate about improving their families’ health? At the Wise Traditions Conference in Portland, Oregon, I recently shared the privilege with Suzanne to do so for two full days. Pure bliss!

We talked bacteria and enzymes. We encouraged experimentation. We put fermentation fears to rest. We introduced people to new cultures they’d not heard of before. We ran into old acquaintances. We met people from all over the United States, Canada, and even Australia! We had a fabulous time, and wished you were there…Enjoy the photos!

Ancestral Health Symposium: Overcoming the Fear of Fermentation

AHS3

Last week, Bonni and I attended the Ancestral Health Symposium in Atlanta, Ga, where we offered many CFH products at our booth.

The crowd was quite different from that attending other conferences. They were knowledgeable on healthy eating, exercise, and quality of life, and we connected with some wonderful authors and bloggers in the paleo community. The surprising thing was that many of them did not include fermented foods in their meal plans.

Suzanne

Suzanne is into gardening, real food, and treading lightly. Her favorite cultured foods include Matsoni yogurt, which tastes just like the yogurt her Armenian grandmother used to make; sauerkraut, which she used to dip out of a barrel each week at her favorite little shop in Germany; and dill pickles, which she used to eat straight from the big jar on the counter of her Grandpa’s general store.

Note from Shannon: I am pleased to bring the voices of our lovely contributors to this space every Tuesday. Please welcome Jerri, CFH Customer Service Rep & cultured kitchen-keeper.

I love people! What an amazing weekend. The excitement, curiosity, and gratefulness of the visitors to our booth at the Chicago Green Festival were astounding. Being my first experience at this kind of venue, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Although pretty worn out by Sunday evening, I had a fabulous time meeting folks and working the booth with Julie, Rosalyn, and Suzanne. Chicago, as much as I enjoyed sharing my culturing knowledge with you, you enlightened me as well!

So many interactions are embedded in my memory…

CFH at the Green Festival in Chicago

Note from Shannon: Please welcome Suzanne, CFH Customer Service Rep & cultured kitchen-keeper, as she shares her culturing experiences from the Green Festival in Chicago.

I just returned home from Chicago, where Cultures for Health presented products and shared culturing know-how in our booth at the Green Festival, held at Navy Pier.

While we met with lots of interest in making kombucha, yogurt and other cultured foods at home, the theme of the weekend seemed to be cultured vegetables. This should come as no surprise, considering Chicago’s rich history of European immigration.
