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.
Tomato soup with bread
La pappa al pomodoro è una ricetta della tradizione toscana. Perfetta d’estate come modo per riutilizzare il pane raffermo.
about 300 g of stale Tuscan bread
500 g of Tuscan tomatoes
1 litre of vegetable broth
salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Wash and peel tomatoes, passing the back of the knife on the skin before peeling them.
Remove seeds and cut tomatoes to small cubes.
Add oil, two cloves of garlic and basil in a pot and sauté until the garlic browns, avoiding to burning it.
Add tomatoes and cook at medium heat for some minutes.
Cut the bread to pieces and reconstitute it with the vegetable broth. Squeeze it and add tomatoes.
Keep cooking for about 20 minutes at low heat, until the bread melt, so that the tomato soup with bread is dense enough. If the soup is too dense, then add some broth.
Let it rest and serve cold.
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?
