What’s so important about taking these classes?
If you are new to cooking, or new to traditional cooking, Wardeh will show you in basic terms how to prepare a variety of important foods and dishes that form the foundation of many things you want to make for your family.
Here is the sneak peak video of what you can expect from Wardeh’s classes:
Although modern life allows us to eat many convenience foods are quick to prepare, our overall health has suffered due to a departure from making real food from scratch. The primitive environments our ancestors lived in made hunting, gathering, and devoting a whole day to preparing meals for their families a necessity. Nowadays, we believe we have less time for home and cooking; our busy schedules simply won’t allow. We’ve departed from the old ways and appreciation of where we get our food. But with a simple reintroduction to making the foods that feed our bodies and minds, we can reacquaint ourselves with our important relationships to people and the earth – all while supporting our health.
If you are interested in getting started with traditional cooking, I highly recommend you try this eCourse. It can be difficult to sift through a traditional cook book (like Nourishing Traditions) without the guiding experience of someone who has done it all before to show you how to make methods easier and feel more comfortable. Wardeh takes you through the process of preparing a variety of foods that you and your family eat and enjoy everyday.

Hi Rainey, I believe we met at Jenny’s cooking event last summer.
What are dates and times of the classes. Thank you, Judi
Hi Judi –
Here is the information directly from Wardeh and the GNOWFGLINS web site:
Here’s How the eCourse Works
Each week, you’ll receive one lesson, or one part of a lesson. You’ll get it in a combination of audio, video and/or print formats. In the video, I will demonstrate a lesson’s cooking technique, giving you the confidence you need to do it yourself. The print and audio versions of a lesson will deepen your understanding of GNOWFGLINS, share more details about the technique presented in the video lesson, suggest more recipes that you can follow to take the lesson further, and offer troubleshooting advice for possible obstacles. When you’re done watching, listening to, and reading each lesson’s simple yet comprehensive multi-media materials, you’ll know, as I do, that you can achieve delicious, healthy food, too!
Each lesson will answer three basic and essential questions:
What? – What is this food and/or technique? What ingredients do I need?
Why? – Why should we eat a certain food or prepare it a certain way?
How? – How is the technique carried out or how is this food prepared?
Each lesson will come with one or more “Fact Sheets,” which are one-page (more or less) documents that quickly summarize an important topic. You might call them Cliff Notes. 😉 All by themselves, these are a great resource and you’ll turn to them again and again to guide your kitchen tasks with surety. I recommend putting them all in page protectors in a handy binder.
As a participant of the eCourse, you’ll have access to the members-only forums. There, you can trade advice and experience, encourage – and be encouraged by – other members, brainstorm solutions, and get personalized advice from me. No matter what hiccups you face, your fellow community members and I will get you going again.
Are you wondering how you’ll ever figure out what to buy and what equipment you’ll need? I’ve got that covered, too! You’ll get ingredient and equipment notes well in advance of needing anything special. I won’t leave you hanging out to dry, unprepared. So breathe easy.
Oh, by the way, I’ll avoid requiring kitchen appliances as much as possible. Sometimes, the right tool is absolutely necessary. On the other hand, quite often the best tool is the simplest tool. If I can spare you from having to buy something when you really can’t afford it, I will.
So there are no set times for the course. It’s something you do at your own pace each week – as she said, each week you receive something new and it comes in the format of audio, video, and/or print formats. The enrollment period ends at 5 p.m. on Monday, February 22nd and the course begins the following day, Tuesday, February 23rd.
I hope that helps! If you decide to sign up, please go through my web site as I am an affiliate of GNOWFLGLINS. Many thanks!
