A Tale of Two Calves –The Taste Test

You may remember a few posts back, that the CAVA restaurant in Toronto was planning to host a taste test of Michael Schmidt’s “two calves”. Well, here’s a report of the results of that Taste Test, excerpted from the Food Network.ca blog, along with photos, some from that blog, and others courtesy of CAVA:

“Truth be told, I get invited my share of dinners although not as many as you may think. At the beginning I would say yes to pretty much any event that would have me.

Is cow’s milk only good for calves?

There’s been controversy for a while now in nutrition circles, with some saying dairy is unnecessary in the human diet and others saying that while commercial pasteurized milk and milk products may be associated with health problems, raw dairy is altogether different in its effects on the body and is actually a valuable food.

Cow's milk is for calves, right? Are humans the only mammals to drink the milk of another species? Could be... but I'm pretty sure we're also the only mammals who use the internet. Your point?

Here’s an excellent summary of the case for milk and specifically, the case for raw milk, as part of a healthy diet. This article is written by Karen Railey B.S., CNC. It was originally found by Audrey, and circulated by Beverley. Audrey found it in “Chet’s Day” health news letter. Karen Railey, who wrote this piece, is also the author of the how-to guide “How to improve fading memory and thinking skills with Nutrition“. Continue reading
