To Your Health: Gut Health

Gut-health.jpg

One of the most exciting and revolutionary topics in health right now is also one of the least sexy: We’re talking about the bacteria that live in our digestive tracts—what science types call the gut microbiome. Our bodies play host to trillions of these critters, and they make up a mini-ecosystem that helps us break down the food we eat and absorb its nutrients. At least, that’s all we thought the microbiome did. Recent research has shown that our belly bacteria have an incredible impact on everything from fat loss and inflammation levels to perhaps even our susceptibility to depression and anxiety. Want to learn more about how you can improve your gut, and thereby overall, health? Join us as we once again pair up with Registered Dietitian & Nutritionist Mary-Blake Summerlin to explore this fascinating topic all while enjoying an array of gut-healthy foods!

SOLD OUT The Wine Table: Cookbook Tasting & Signing

Vickie2.jpg

"The Wine Table is an insightful collection of recipes, tips, and memories that follow one simple rule: wine is better with food, and food is better with wine. A delicious read!"

—Eric Ripert, chef & co-owner, Le Bernardin

No Thyme to Cook is excited to introduce you to acclaimed cookbook author Vickie Reh when she joins us Saturday, February 9 to talk about her new cookbook, The Wine Table. Named one of the Washington Post's best cookbooks of the year, Reh will prepare two dishes featured in her book while pairing them with two outstanding wines. The cost of the class includes a copy of her award-winning cookbook as well as the food and wine pairings.

A chef and certified sommelier, Vickie Reh is based in D.C. but has traveled the world to talk to chefs and winemakers, absorbing not just techniques and recipes, but discovering first-hand the best food and wine pairings. Her warm and engaging album offers a lavish spread of recipes and meal plans, complete with stories from her visits to vineyards throughout France and Italy. Focusing as much on the people as on the food, Reh, who has served as a chef, wine director, wine consultant and tour guide at restaurants including Buck’s Fishing & Camping, Comet Ping Pong, Via Umbria, and Arrowine and Cheese, shows that the best pairing of all is good company with meals lovingly and knowledgably prepared.

We all dream of tasting our way through Burgundy, walking through vineyards in Champagne with a winemaker, or dining late into the night on a winery balcony in Chianti. Who better to guide you than someone whose passion and years in the food and wine industry have led to travels and friendship with winemakers all over the world? Vickie Reh takes us right into the kitchen with winemakers—what do they eat during harvest? What do they drink to celebrate the holidays? Which foods pair best with their wines, and why? How does this vary from region to region?

 

The Wine Table will discuss basics and essentials in food and wine including meeting your local farmer, stocking your pantry, and how to buy and store wine.

We will then travel with the author through various regions of France and Italy, visiting winemakers in their homes to share their stories, cook with them, and enjoy their recipes.

Praise for The Wine Table

"Wow! What a beautifully written book—the tone, the passion, and the authenticity of pairing wine and food shines through. Vickie brings history and geography alive while putting us in the shoes of the wine maker and their harvest table."

—Carla Hall, co-host of The Chew, restaurateur, and author

 

“We seem to be living in a golden age with new wine books and blogs happening almost every day, yet so many of them seem to miss the mark and forget what makes wine so special—the people behind the labels and the human connections we all share. I am happy to say that Vickie has not made that mistake. Her book is overflowing with joy, love, and respect for the culture of celebrating wine with food with people. I am often asked what my favorite wine is, and all of my favorites (yes, it is more than one favorite) are tied to memories of whom and what we were doing when we had the wine; this book nails that premise and provides the template to recreate the meals in your own kitchen. The book is like a mix-tape of nothing but great French and Italian memories/experiences of wine, food, and people; an awesome way to travel without leaving home.”

—Keith Goldston, Master Sommelier, Court of Master Sommeliers

 

"Winemakers, living in beautiful places, celebrating heritage and tradition, drinking fabulously, and eating equally so, Vickie brings all of the romance of winemaking and the legacy of its culture into the home kitchen through her intimate portraits of friends.”

—Barton Seaver, chef and author of American Seafood

 

"The Wine Table takes us through the vineyards and kitchens of winemakers across France and Italy. With recipes and tips on selecting and savoring the wines, join Vickie Reh on a delicious journey through the best winemaking regions in Europe. You'll savor every bite—and sip—of the trip!"

 —David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen

Certain figures stand out as real culinary pioneers – their impact changing the way we eat and approach food. In this new series, we’ll explore the lives of these chefs – what inspired them and how they ultimately affected us. And of course, we’ll prepare and enjoy some of their most iconic dishes. This month we explore the life of Paul Prudhomme, the Louisiana chef who ignited a nationwide craze for Creole and Cajun cooking and profoundly influenced American cuisine.

“I think that Paul Prudhomme has had the greatest influence on American cooking, in cultivating the public interest in American food, of anybody I know,” wrote NY Times food columnist Craig Claiborne. ”People said, ‘There must be more to Southern cooking,’ and he opened up the floodgates to the whole field of Southern cooking.” Join us for the special look into the life and career of one of America’s most influential chefs while we sample some of his tastiest dishes. Special guest Chef Aaron Weiner, of the CD Cafe, will join us again to lead this class when he’ll be preparing:
