I recently had the pleasure of watching Jim Lewis, owner and chef of:
Bettola Restaurant
2901 2nd Ave. S.
Birmingham, Alabama
teach my grandchildren, his nephews how to cook grilled chicken, rissoto and brocoli and enjoying the end results. Jim taught them how to clean the meat and food, cut the herbs from the garden, prepare the broth, cut mushrooms (because they did not have to use a sharp knife) clean the counters and their tools during preparation to make sure to have a clean space at all times, measure, pour and mix ingredients. He demonstrated how to cut the chicken in half, chop onions, broccoli etc. He of course handled the stove and oven explaining to them what he was doing. Jim proves not only to be a successful chef but also a patient and thorough teacher even to challenging 4 and 5 year old boys, both of whom learned well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were very proud of the delicious end result.

Jim apprenticed with Chef Antonio Pisaniello in Southern Italy in order to create authentic Italian cuisine and regularly returns to Italy to update his cuisine skills under leading culinary master Chef Antonio Pisaniello at La Locanda di Bu in Nusco and Master Butcher Dario Cecchini of Antica Macelleria in Panzano. He imported a wood-fired Neapolitan pizza oven, which was handcrafted from Naples. He makes house-made salami and pastas, pork ragu, authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas (using only San Marzano tomatoes grown on the slopes of Vesuvius), traditional antipasti, a delicious mushroom pate amongst other dishes. He was also recently voted in as Top Chef of his region in the Food and Wine Magazine.

Made by the Birmingham Stove and Range Co this Cook Stove served its owners well.

It's funny how far we've come but how far we've stumbled.

In an age where we re-cycle and "Go Green" we act like the concept of using resources to their fullest extent is a new concept, but our Grand Parents would beg to differ.

Take this little Stove for instance.
Most see it as nothing more than an old Cook Stove but trust me, our Grand Parents and before saw much more.
It was used to Cook of course but was also, in most cases, the only source of Heat in the Winter.
It was used for so many things, like Ironing Clothes.
You can see in the Photograph the thing that looks like a Clothes Iron, it is a Clothes Iron.

Also, the Kettle you see was designed to fit into one of the Cooking surface Holes and stay boiling all Day. Why you may ask?
Have you ever heard of using a humidifier during the Winter?
There was always a ready supply of hot Water on hand for whatever they needed it for, kind of like a Water heater.

They even re-cycled the Ash.
Ash you say, what would you use Ashes for...
Have you ever heard of a thing called, Soap?
Yep, that's right, Ash is one of the main ingredients in Soap.

If you think about it, our Grand Parents weren't so wasteful after all, where they... ;O)
