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.
Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup
Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup can be kept in the fridge for as long as a week if they’re well preserved.
16 cardamom pods
2 cups of water
juice of 5 lemons
200 g of sugar
3 medium-size red apples
Clean the apples well and cut them into 8 slices, leaving the skin. Gently squash the cardamom berries with a heavy object. Add the pods, water, lemon juice and sugar in a nonstick medium-size pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the apples to the syrup and bring to a boil; if necessary, cover the pan with a saucer so that the apples are completely plunged into the syrup. Let the mixture boil over low heat for about 10 minutes, until the apples are tender.
Remove from heat and let the apples cool without taking the lid off for about an hour. Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup can be kept in the fridge for as long as a week if they’re well preserved.
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.
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.
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?
