2015 Kitchen Table Talk series: “What’s in a Label”

On March 18th we were joined by 9 food enthusiasts for the third in a series of Kitchen Table Talks. The theme this week was navigating food labels. Nutritionist Lorraine Schmid from Down to Earth Nutrition & Wellness decoded food label buzzwords, and explained some of the common (but scary) ingredients that we’re likely consuming on a regular basis. She followed up by serving easy-to-prepare delicious alternatives to buying processed foods. It was hard to tell which was the evening’s fan favourite, but Lorraine’s original recipe for MAYCADO — homemade mayonnaise, avocado and some secret ingredients — certainly made a big hit. Participants left with a full stomach, information on food additives and preservatives, and a collection of great recipes.
