My name is Wardee Harmon.
I'm the author of the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fermenting Foods and the lead teacher for Traditional Cooking School.
Traditional Cooking School is an online cooking school I created to honor my grandmother’s cooking traditions and preserve them so that future generations can enjoy the health benefits, flavors and fun of traditionally prepared foods.

My Family's Journey to Good Health
My family and I live in Indiana. We are in between properties, having just relocated from 5-1/2 partially wooded acres in southwestern Oregon where we raised small livestock and nurtured an organic garden bursting with seasonal goodies. (Watching each plant grow, flower and ripen into tonight’s dinner is one of life’s great delights.)
I'm just a mom, sharing her knowledge and passion for traditional cooking with other moms and families. This is our growing family, including our oldest daughter's husband and baby, too. What a blessing!
But my life wasn’t always like this.
For me, it all began when I became a mom.
There I was… a young mother with 2 small children and a baby born with red, itchy rashes all over his body. I tried everything, but I couldn’t find a cooking style that supported my husband’s healthy appetite, the food wishes of my little girls, and my son’s dietary restrictions.
I was frustrated and desperate.
But then I remembered the meals my Grandma used to make for me. And I thought about the traditional cooking methods from her homeland.
And I wondered: “What if the problem isn’t me… what if the problem is actually genetically-modified, processed food trucked in from big factory farms?”
So I started cooking natural, organic, seasonal, whole foods using recipes in a cookbook called, Nourishing Traditions.
That’s when everything changed.
My husband loved the flavors, the girls went from finicky to asking for seconds, and my son’s skin cleared up.
Ear infections and doctor visits became a thing of the past. We all had more energy. And we even slept better.
So sweet, so happy, so healthy… this was my new life.
And I was so excited to share my discovery with others, that I started a blog (this one).
From Generation to Generation… to You
Then the blog started to grow.
People, just like you, wanted ideas and inspiration to help them create delicious, healthy, traditional foods.
So I made:
- Video demos that show you exactly how to make your own traditional foods,
- Audios so you can learn more about healthy cooking… even when you’re away from the kitchen, and
- Printable cookbooks with complete tutorials on how to make your traditional meals look and taste just like Grandma’s.
And to keep things simple… I collected it all together in a friendly membership site, with 24/7 access, a private active-support forum, and monthly Q&A meetings.
