How you prepare food is  just as important as what you buy or grow. 

As a chef for more than 25 years, Cathy Hohmeyrer celebrates Old World traditional methods of preparing of food with her newest cookbook "Common Roots".

Over time, she came to realize that no matter who you are - from vegetarian to the carnivore, there are ways to prepare your food that can enhance their taste and wellness properties. Chef Cathy calls it 'mindful preparations' and the Cookbook will introduce you to terms such as nutrient density and bone broths - simple ways to make what may be lost, great recipes. 

And this book is much more than recipes.

In addition to showing you alternative ways to prepare the dishes, beer and wine pairings (as well as additional information including traditional foods cooking classes and on-line references), the book also shares the historical roots of the recipes.

With each recipe comes a beautiful heart-felt story.

Cathy says "For us dinner time was more than just a meal, it was a chance to gather as a family. It created many special, personal times. Our goal here is these stories will encourage you to create a few of your own."

Join me as I interview Cathy to hear more about her newest book, some cooking tips for us to use, and she will even share some of her favorite stories from the book!
