Brochure Copy for Human Resources DE&I Training

Diversity is about the way we see.

As small children, we know no boundaries. We see through eyes that require no corrective lenses. And because we see before we speak, our minds know no labels.

Once we begin to speak, however, we acquire the language of differences and our minds begin to associate what we see with descriptive, and sometimes pejorative, words and phrases.   VIEW>>

Family-Style Dining. Inflation is hitting people’s discretionary spending, but family-style dining is an economical way to still enjoy restaurants with family and friends. This way of eating is also good for your health and good for the environment.

One of the most significant benefits of family-style dining is that it reduces food waste. Click here to read more on the website for Ironside Kitchen in North Miami.

article about cucina povera jenifer vogt

Cucina Povera Has Become Haute Cuisine

When chefs and mindful food connoisseurs preach about local, seasonal, and organic whole foods, they’re speaking the language of Cucina Povera. Though the origins have nothing to do with the modern sustainability movement, Cucina Povera admonishes food waste because it arose during a time when people were hungry and had to make a small amount of food to feed a large amount of people. They ate mindfully decades before that became a thing, in stark contrast to Americans, who’ve never had a war on their soil (knock wood) and have always overconsumed.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>

Hard to Imagine a World Without Parmigiano Reggiano

When countries are viewed in the context of brands, Italy is among the top ten, but that placement comes at the high cost of 120 billion euros in fake Italian products being sold throughout the world. In June of 2022, Italy reported that over two-thirds of Italian food products sold outside Italy are fake, and the Ukraine war has exacerbated the problem. Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padana are the two most imitated fake products. In the U.S. alone, there are 40 billion euro worth of fake, Italian-sounding products being sold.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>

Article about extra virgin olive oil written by Jenifer Vogt

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a Powerful Elixer

The difference between “extra virgin” and regular olive oil is that regular olive oil is refined to minimize or eliminate defects in taste, aroma or acidity.  Though less harsh than what’s done with other types of oils, there are a few different processes used to refine regular olive oil, such as bleaching and deodorization, that rely on heat for purification. Regular olive oil is also actually a blend of olive oil and extra virgin olive oil, but the processing makes the quality inferior to pure extra virgin.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>

Women, Wellness & Work in 2023

Done for Women of the Vine & Spirits Wellness Business Resource Group.

In the wake of the Covid pandemic, women are paying more attention to their health and well-being than ever before. In this presentation, we covered the eight, mutually interdependent dimensions of wellness identified by the National Institute of Health. We reviewed what each dimension encompasses and then surveyed attendees to understand their health-related goals and interests, both personally and in the workplace. The purpose of this group is to build a community of women working together to take charge of their health and wellness journey. Participants are encouraged to share their challenges and accomplishments, and to exchange ideas and tips for health and well being. We facilitate a confidential and safe space to foster deeper disussion and build supportive relationships.  Please click here to view the presentation.
