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.
Apple and scamorza scones
British single-serving cakes in a savoury sweet version with apples and scamorza.
200 g of spelt flour
30 g of sugar
7 g of baking powder
a pinch of salt
50 ml of oil
70 g of scamorza cheese
50 ml of fresh cream
Preheat the oven at 190°C. Peel the apples and cut them in sixteen slices. Place them in a tray covered with greaseproof paper and bake for about 20 minutes, until cooked and soft. Let them cool and keep the oven at 190°C.
Sift the flour and combine it with sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the oil while blending until you obtain a sandy mixture. Add the cooled apples, grated cheese, cream and one egg. Continue mixing until the dough is smooth. Don’t mix too much.
Sprinkle with flour a cutting board and put the floured dough on it. Spread it roughly until it is 1.5 cm high. Cut the dough into circles using a round cutter and adjust them separated in a tray covered with greaseproof paper. Brush with the other egg and bake the scones for about 30 minutes.
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.
Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup can be kept in the fridge for as long as a week if they’re well preserved.
Let’s look at the reasons behind the growth of veganism in India, as a small yet vocal section of the population turns towards this diet and lifestyle in the largest milk producing country in the world.
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.
