Public Heaarth Ad 2



This program is Edible‘s effort to share the basic techniques of cooking – to teach fundamentals (as opposed to recipes), and to encourage each student to share what s/he has learned.  We call that #CookItForward.

The Public Hearth was the brainchild of Edible Iowa publisher Kurt Michael Friese, based on two separate essays he wrote about America’s cooking problem.  You can follow (and contribute to!) the development of the Public Hearth on the Facebook page, and by following on Twitter at @ThePublicHearth.

Meanwhile please share widely, and we hope you’ll join us for the class.
