If you enjoy eating meat with loads of flavour, that’s moist, that tastes incredible and that contains loads of health benefits, leave it on the bone. Our grandparents used to eat most of the animal – the luxury of eating just the tender muscle meat every night just didn’t exist like it does today. So without even realising it, the result for our grandparents was a more nourished and well- balanced diet.
Bones like rib bones, shin bones, as well as leg and shoulder joints, cuts like osso bucco and short ribs, and even collagen-rich cuts like chuck – release gelatin when cooked. Gelatin provides us with important amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Glycine is one of those amino acids in gelatin which studies have shown to help heal and seal the gut lining, improve digestion and aid in skin, joint and hair health. Some even report improved sleep and a boost in mental clarity. Gelatin is also rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium & phosphorus which play a role in bone health. Choosing the highest quality meats you can find is of importance – free-range, chemical-free, sustainably-raised and from small local farms with high standards and growing practices.
Come along to this unique workshop hosted by Kitchen Vitality Natural Foods Cooking School and the wonderful local farmers from Free-Range Family Food Co-op. We will be cooking and tasting a variety of chicken, beef, pork and lamb recipes using cuts containing the bone, and you will also learn techniques on how to make delicious gelatin-rich bone broth – a must for the winter season.

More about this workshop:
Gut-healing Fermented Foods
Fermented foods have been a mainstay on the menu in many cultures around the world for thousands of years. Traditionally as a method to preserve foods in the absence of modern technology, fermented foods – as we now know – are a pillar for robust health, starting with balancing the flora in our gut. Other benefits include improved digestion, more effective assimilation of nutrients available in foods, reduced sugar cravings, and many find they lose weight.
Learn how to make these simple yet important probiotic foods in your own kitchen. You will be able to taste a variety of fermented foods and drinks and take home all delicious recipes. On the menu will be delicious and nutritious probiotic drinks kombucha and water kefir, mango or tomato salsa and soon-to-be-mainstays in your kitchen – sauerkraut, dilly carrots, coconut yogurt and fermented ketchup, among others.
Beautiful Bone Broths
Along with fermented foods, broths are also a traditional food and are a necessity for strong gut health. In addition to soothing the lining of the gut (which many of us need after years of eating not so nutritious, inflammatory food), broth provides many trace minerals, boosts immunity, and is amazing for bone and skin. Broths have become the new darling in the world of natural, organic & traditional foods – we are starting to see health-conscious restaurants serve mugs of broth and stands at farmers markets selling their creations – and not for cheaply! Learn how to make your own bone broth at home. Learn my secrets to creating rich, delicious & gelatinous broth and how to incorporate it in every day meals.
The bone broth portion of class is unsuitable for vegetarians.
