Hi my name is jordan, I am permaculture farmer growing fruits, nuts, grains, herbs, vegetables, meat and more here in the sierra nevada mountains. My stomach rules my life and in turn i must cook. i have learned to cook based on traditional styles as well as on my own thoughts, tastes and skills, using the products i produce myself mostly. this includes curing meats, smoking foods and using traditional cooking methods like a wood fired oven. which saw something like 700 pies last year for friends and family. looking to talk with others addicted to cooking fresh food.
