Welcome to the Culinary Libertarian podcast. I want you to succeed in the kitchen if you are baking or cooking. The mystery and amazement of restaurant cooking can feel intimidating. You can do this and I'll help. Listen along to how easy it can be and you can get in the kitchen and get cooking.
My guest today is, Michael Boldin, the executive director of the 10th Amendment Center. He joins me to talk food sovereignty which starts with each of us not allowing the government to bully us about regarding what foods we prefer to consume. Michael discusses how the raw milk folks and food in general can learn much from the success of the cannabis and hemp and CBD folks. Listen in as Michael's enthusiasm for liberty is contagious and inspiring.

José Niño joins me to discuss his 2018 article "Get Ready for the War on Meat" on Mises.org. Since the Green New Deal, farming and meat have become more visible and political and politicians aim to do probably no good whatsoever getting involved in meat production and consumption. José and I discuss some ways to combat that as well as some discussion about just what happens when governments act as central planners.

Flavor is the name of the game after eating for sustenance. How to do that is often a mystery but only because the basics have not be revealed. Getting layers of flavor are easy to do, but do require some basic cooking principles and steps.
Listen as I explain how to get flavor layers and then you can use those practices in all your cooking.

What is it, this libertarianism?
I do my best to share my knowledge, so far, of what it is and why I find it attractive and why I think you should too.
As we approach a another national election, lots of misinformation will be pushed as fact and lots of facts will be concealed.
How to know what is true and where to find the true is increasingly more important. So, too, is having a grounding of a way to think of the world which can help you reach the right conclusions without depending on the MSM for advice.
