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.
Asparagus filo rolls
An original idea to eat asparagus as an antipasto or with eggs. For this recipe we chose a light and crunchy type of puff pastry: filo.
Ingredients for 4 servings
16 fresh asparagus spears
2 sheets of filo pastry
grated Parmesan cheese
extra virgin olive oil
whole sea salt
Clean the asparagus spears one by one, cut the final part of the stalk, which is hard and sinewy and steam them for 5 minutes. Lay them on a plate and season them with salt. Roll out the filo pastry, brush it with oil, sprinkle it with grated Parmesan cheese and cut it into 25 x 7 cm stripes. Roll the asparagus spears one by one with the filo pastry. Put them on a tray, brush them with oil and bake at 180° for about 25 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and black pepper before serving.
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?
