In The Kitchen With Chef Johannes Klapdohr – Schmackofatz!
After lunch, we went out to see the farm that Johannes just planted at the Old Edwards Farm property outside of town. He will be using the herbs and vegetables (especially for stocks) that are produced there in the future. I will be going back periodically throughout the summer to see the progress.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Johannes (and my lunch) and appreciated his philosophy on so many things related to cooking and food. He truly is a food activist and has already been involved in getting his voice out there, especially while he was in Ohio. If Jamie Oliver is reading this (not), he should definitely get in touch with Johannes. A better match could not be found!
If you are interested in reading about any of these topics, Johannes has suggested several books. These are available through my Amazon store. You can access the link to my store by clicking on the title of the book.
He also suggests that you watch or read about this CNN special:
Sanjay Gupta on Toxic America and Toxic Childhood.
