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.
Lemon and almond biscuits
Lemon and almond biscuits match perfectly with a cup of tea.
90 ml olive oil
90 g powdered sugar
2 lemons, peel
2 spoonful of lemon juice
1 sachet of vanillin
140 g of spelt flour
40 g of corn starch
35 g of sorghum flour
20 g of almond flour
1/2 a teaspoonful of salt
Combine the oil, powdered sugar and lemon peel and whip it until smooth. Add the lemon juice and mix, then add also the dried ingredients and mix until they are well blended. Put the dough on a sheet of greaseproof paper and roll it. Keep it in the fridge for about 2 hours.
Cut biscuits half a centimetre thick. Place them on a tray covered with greaseproof paper and bake at 180 °C for about 12 minutes.
Let them cool on the tray. When the lemon and almond biscuits are lukewarm, dust them with confectioners’ sugar.
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?
