The NC Challenge
This is the premise behind the Nourishing Cook Blog. To read about the 4 forks rating system please go here.
- There are 773 recipes in the NT cookbook, not including variations on one recipe. My goal is to cook all of the recipes out of Nourishing Traditions. Repeat recipes and extra variations do not count toward the total.
- Most posts will contain a recipe from Nourishing Traditions and my family’s experiences in preparing and eating the meal or dish. This will include shopping, tips and tricks, any changes we made to the recipe, cute anecdotes, you get the idea. I will also share who ate the meal and liked it. I will declare the stats in that day’s posts. If our family gives a meal or dish four “forks up” then I will show that on the post for that day, Special 4 forks up days with extra love for the meal will receive the rare but coveted empty plate award.
- I will cook in season as much as possible (we are in the Portland, Oregon, US area). I like to do this to keep the costs down and also I like to shop from local farms (we belong to a CSA), farmer’s markets, and our co-op. So you will not see fresh tomato and zucchini recipes until the US summertime months.
- This challenge is for learning and for fun, and my goal is to not stress too much about it but to make progress toward the goal of feeding my family non-processed food as much as possible.
