Ok Ok Ok Ok

Looks like an interesting place here. I'm on the SE coast of the USA and will be mostly posting on ethnic and natural foods topics. I have nothing against hunters who eat what they kill. Most hunters are generous and give away a lot of their kills.

My all time favorite food is French fries made with organic potatoes or other potatoes that have taste to them. Lots of salt on the fries and lots of ketchup. Some fried fish along with that please! On the healthy side I love kale and good rye bread with caraway seeds. Toasted then butter spread on it. In the old country where my ancestors are from (Russia) a real treat was a slice of heavy rye bread with a clove of raw garlic rubbed into it.

I consider myself a very good cook when it comes to beans and split pea soup. I'm good with vegetables and unyeasted bread (making some tonite). Also home made sauerkraut

My favorite restaurants: The "No Name" in Boston and Katz's in New York City. You can't go wrong with the Sweet Tomatoes chain of buffet restaurants

thanks and bread

pdswife and kadesma ... thanks much ladies.
My unyeasted sourdough bread is steamed-baked on the stove. No oven use. It's too heavy for most people. But it has a very good caraway-rye taste. One part caraway seed finely ground up in Krups coffee mill. Two parts rye and seven parts hard wheat. All ground at home. This bread is too hard core for most people here, there and everywhere.

But here is a bread maker who is really onto something. Honest pumpernickel bread http://www.samartha.net/SD/procedures/PPN01/index.html

Welcome!! There is nothing better than a good, heavy rye bread. I grew up in Cleveland Ohio and some mightly fine corned beef/pastrami sandwiches. Another thing that I can't find anywhere are the kaiser rolls, you know, the ones that are kind of hard on the outside and soft on the inside. All the ones down here are soft like a loaf of bread.

Anyway - welcome to the group.
