Cucina Verde to be featured at January What’s for Dinner local foods event
Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is excited to announce we will be featuring fermented foods from Cucina Verde at our next What’s for Dinner event, set for January 31. Cucina Verde is owned and operated by Annmarie Cantrell.
“Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. This statement only resonated with me about 15 years ago, after I had been struggling for 6 months with chronic infections, exhaustion, weight loss, hormonal problems, anxiety and depression,” says Annemarie. “After realizing that my symptoms were caused by my body’s reactions to foods that I was eating, I set off to heal myself. I tried many different interventions looking for that magic bullet, but when I learned how to nourish myself, things began to shift. I began to heal. I discovered that in order to deeply nourish myself, I needed to become reconnected with food, REAL food, and I re-established a kitchen culture in which cooking real food from scratch became my new policy for health care. Embedded in my cooking is a love and respect for all things traditional.”
“The proliferation of processed foods have left many of us with less than ideal digestive systems. Our digestive systems become taxed by the consumption of processed foods, sugars, and antibiotics. When our micro flora are out of balance, our immunity suffers. We become prone to illnesses such as allergies, arthritis, and autoimmune disorders. Adding lacto- fermented foods into the diet is an excellent way to repopulate your gut with the beneficial micro flora.”
Stay tuned to learn just which ferments will be featured in January, as we find out What’s for Dinner!
