Wardeh (‘Wardee’) Harmon is a homesteader and real food expert, author, and the founder of Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS. She embraces the Creator’s perfect foods — God’s Natural, Organic, Whole Foods, Grown Locally, In Season (GNOWFGLINS).
She lives in Oregon with her family, where they garden and raise cows, chickens, sheep, and goats. She is passionate about traditional cooking. She writes books and teaches online classes in the fundamentals of traditional cooking, sourdough, cultured dairy, cheesemaking, fermentation, kids cooking, dehydrating, and more.
The Return to Traditional Foods
Before there were factory farms and processed foods, there were nutrient-dense foods prepared traditionally. People of old knew how to bake with sourdough, create ‘good-for-you’ crunchy and sour pickles, make farmhouse cheeses and churn cultured butter. Those foods were not only tasty but very nutritious — and the people were relatively free of modern diseases. They lived close to the land and its bounty and passed their knowledge down from generation to generation. Wardee’s family has returned to those roots and old-fashioned skills.
