Factory farming conditions and antibiotic-resistant pathogens emerging as a result of them pose an existential threat to humans in the form of zoonotic diseases. Why it’s time to produce and consume food more thoughtfully.
Andalusian gazpacho is a traditional recipe. Here are some of its variants invented in many other Spanish regions.
Ingredients for 6 servings
300 g of diced stale bread
1.5 kg of ripe round tomatoes
6 spoonful of extra virgin olive oil
2 or 3 cloves of garlic
1/2 kg of cucmbers
3 green peppers
1 litre of fresh water
red wine vinegar
2 diced ripe tomatoes
2 diced and skinned cucumbers
1 diced green pepper
1 minced onion
Clean and cut the vegetables into chunks (cucumbers should be skinned first). Blend all the ingredients except for those you’ll use to garnish the dish and season with vinegar and salt to taste. You should obtain a smooth and homogeneous cream. Let it cool in the fridge and serve with the diced vegetables you set apart in another plate so that your tablemates can add whichever they want.
It is a Spanish traditional recipe invented in Andalusia but spread in many other regions with a few changes. Here are the most common variants: garnish with grapes and replace vinegar with lemon juice; garnish exclusively with green pepper; serve with sliced boiled eggs in another plate. It is possible to let it cool in the fridge (so that the vitamins it contains are better preserved), but in this case you’d better offer the diners ice cubes to add to their dishes.

The world of cinema recognises the link between food choices and the climate crisis by offering vegan menus for awards season events, including at the most important of them all: the Oscars.

In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
Quality ingredients, no artificial colouring and hydrogenated fats. These are the main features of a great ice cream. But what makes an ice cream parlour “good”, i.e. sustainable?
