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.
Orange cake without butter
Orange cake without butter. An excellent orange sponge that can also be used for the preparation of other cakes.
150 g of flour
80 g of sugar
100 ml of extra virgin olive oil
1 orange, grated peel and juice
Preheat the oven at 180°C. Grease with oil and sprinkle with flour a cake pan of about 21 cm that opens. Add eggs and sugar and, using a food processor whip for a while until you obtain a quite compact mousse. Clean the orange, grate its peel and squeeze it to extract the juice. Add oil to taste, the orange juice and peel to the egg and sugar mixture.
While mixing from the bottom to the top, gently add the flour. Continue stirring carefully. Bake for about 30 minutes. Do the toothpick test for doneness.
Let the orange cake without butter cool, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve. As an alternative, you can use this orange sponge to prepare other cakes.
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.
The citrus fruit and daikon salad is served with soy vinaigrette and chopped pistachios.
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.
