Meet the Winners – The Culture of Living: The Inspired Kitchen Contest

Posted on

For Gaggenau, The Inspired Kitchen is a contest that pays homage to the heart of the home by inspiring design that assures, entertains, and sparks conversation. Designers were invited to put their creativity and design philosophy to the test by creating a culinary space where luxury is expressed through emotion, materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics. Each designer submitted 3-to-6 kitchen illustrations, renderings, or drawings, including three Gaggenau appliances, as well as a written narrative describing their design inspiration and appliance selection. And, in the spirit of giving back, for the first 20 entrants, Gaggenau donated $500 per submission to The James Beard Foundation—an organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America’s food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable.

The five winning designs were chosen based on creativity, originality, and functionality:

Devon mother is shocked to discover cattle staring at her through her living room window

Posted on

A mother was left stunned when she awoke to find a cow staring into her living room window and another 50 trampling through her garden. 

Natasha Hooper, 39, was getting ready in her bathroom at her home in Sprayton, Devon, when her son Tyler Findlay, 13, told her, ‘there’s a cow looking through the window.’

At first she thought her son was just imagining things but was left gobsmacked to find the unwelcome guest had been joined by a whole herd.   

Footage shows the cattle making themselves at home in the garden and leaving a trail of destruction as they left manure all over the family’s lawn and driveway.

Living off the Land: Managing your garden after a killing frost | Living off the land

Posted on

Different parts of the Snake River Valley experienced a “damaging” but not killing frost a couple weeks ago. And if your garden was covered, then you probably have loads of green tomatoes, squash, and vegetables still ripening and growing.

Within the near future we will inevitably be having a killing frost, which will make most people’s gardens a thing of the past. After a killing frost you may be looking at the carnage in your garden and think that if we had just a couple more weeks, we could have gotten that produce ripened. (That’s always wishful thinking, but it never happens.)

For most people this was a slightly difficult growing season due to the intense heat we experienced during the summer and how much extra watering it took to keep plants growing, keep up with evaporation and not have them drought stressed. Also, many people started planting a garden

Chef Lisa Becklund (left) and Linda Ford operate Living Kitchen Farm and Dairy near Depew. Reservations for their farm-to-table dinners in November will open to the public Saturday, Oct. 3.




Living Kitchen Farm and Dairy will begin taking reservations for its November Farm Table Dinners at 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3.

Living Kitchen offers seven- to nine-course tasting menus using ingredients grown, produced or foraged on the farm, or purchased from other local farms. The dinners are a community dining experience served at a common table on the screened-in back porch of a cabin on the farm’s property.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, only 20 to 24 guests will be allowed to take part in each dinner, so the dinners will likely sell out even quicker than usual.

The November dinner schedule includes two meals: “Northwest Passage,” in which chef Lisa Becklund will combine special culinary delights from
