WELCOME TO THE KNIFE & FORK

 

THE KNIFE & FORK will be a group open to a broad range of food-related topics. You do not have to be a food snob, an epicure, or a bon vivant to join, participate, or enjoy this group. You just have to have the desire to share and explore old and new information on food and dining.

Discussion topics, articles, and questions can include, but are not limited to:

  • Food history and legend
  • Ingredient recognition, selection, storage, and preparation
  • Your favorite recipes, methods, and tips and tricks
  • Your favorite wines, beers, liquors, or cocktail recipes
  • Health & nutrition information for adults or children
  • Food allergy information, warnings, and replacements
  • Organic foods and pesticide information
  • Sanitation and food safety / preparation
  • Product labeling and government regulation
  • Food and product recalls
  • Culinary and dining etiquette, rituals, and customs
  • Food economics
  • Documentaries, books, cookbooks, and television shows
  • Bizarre or unusual foods and customs from around the world
  • Vitamins & supplements (with which you have direct experience)
  • Diet information (with which you have direct experience)
  • Agricultural or farming practices related to food quality or availability*

 

*For this item, please see Borderline Discussion Posts below.


Borderline Discussion Posts
It is inevitable that there will be some crossover in topics and issues related to food production and consumption. I am not forbidding these topics outright, but there may be a better venue for them. Use your best judgment and post the topic in the group that best fits the focus of the discussion. Please do not cross post the same discussion twice in different groups, as it is against Atheist Nexus policy to do so.

  • If you are interested in food and gardening, it makes more sense to join Godless in the Garden and post your discussions there.
  • If you are interested in how agriculture and modern farming affect the environment, please join Environmental Atheists.
  • If you are interested in socio-economic justice, family farms, and fair trade practices, please consider Consumer Ethics instead.
  • If animal welfare as it relates to food production and consumption is your thing, please join us in Humane Atheists.

yes Méabh, it reminds me of a book called "Lost in the Amazon" or something like that. The journalist went in the Amazon jungle with a team and one time when he was eating with the knife and fork the indigenous people from a tribe were looking to him with superiority and making comments like: " look at him, he is so clumsy that he has to use tools for eating, he can't eat food with hands like us"

Don't you mean "omnivores and vegetarians", Dallas? I don't know anyone who lives on meat alone.
Comment by Little Name Atheist on August 11, 2009 at 2:44am
Why not "Chopsticks", or "Fingertips and Hands"?

Great idea. Adding the alternative names for vegetables would be a good idea as well. I'll start a post...

@Dallas: "Do y'all like the name of the group okay? I struggled coming up with one I liked."

I think is good. If it was "the knife and pork" would sound well too. :)

Dallas, I like the name. Sober and to the point.

Great idea for a group. The name is perfect.
Comment by ɟǝןıx dǝʇɹɐɹ on August 9, 2009 at 11:48pm
ok Dallas. You see, I follow the middle way: I eat both meat and vegetables :).
finally something not related with atheism ! (unless you know some atheist food recipe).
I'll ask my mother the recipes for some Transylvanian traditional dishes for Christmas and Easter.

is forbidden proselytizing about what? Kosher food?
