This groundhog-day event at Cava restaurant in Toronto was held last Tuesday, February 2, 2010, and featured raw dairy AND PIG farmer Michael Schmidt among the panel of four judges.

Vancouver restaurant combines best of health-food & meat-eating philosophies

Gordon Watson sent us this story from the Vancouver Sun about an innovative local restaurant that (although it’s not mentioned in the story) is also a drop off point for Home on the Range cowshare members. From what’s said in the story it sounds as though these folks follow the Weston A. Price approach to healthy eating using nutrient-dense foods:

Open Tuesday to Friday, 8:30 to 6; Saturday, 10 to 5.

VANCOUVER – The name: Ethical Kitchen. The ambience: a lighter shade of The Naam. The staff: wholesome young women with fresh faces. Food: 99-per-cent organic. First impression: It’s a vegetarian haven, a Birkenstock collective.

So what a surprise – I had the most delicious, juicy burger here. The beef stew was crammed with very good beef. I could have had an equally meaty, juicy sausage on a bun.

When you put together the bits and pieces of information posted on the cooler display, you realize Ethical Kitchen is an unexpected mix of healthy and sustainable and lots of meat. Continue reading
