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.
Chocolate balls with black rice
The crunchy puffed black rice makes these chocolate balls very tasty.
Ingredients for the chocolate balls with black rice
100 g of dark chocolate
1/2 a cup of tahini
2 spoonful of sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoonful of olive oil
1/2 a cup of black rice
Melt the chocolate in a bain marie. Mix the chocolate, tahini, sugar and salt and let the mixture cool until it is solid, for about 20 minutes.
In the meantime, heat the oil in a small frying pan. When it is warm cook the rice keeping on stirring. After about 1 minute the rice will crackle and become puffed. When you obtain puffed rice place it in a plate with a few sheets of kitchen paper. The rice should be crunchy.
Form the chocolate balls using your hands and a spoon. Let them cool for about 5 minutes and then roll the balls on puffed rice. Keep them in the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes 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?
