Seeding the Ocean: Inside a Michelin-Starred Chef ’s Revolutionary Quest to Harvest Rice From the Sea
There are very few things that Ángel León hasn’t done with the fruits of the sea. In 2008, as a young, unknown chef, he took a loin from one fish and attached it to the loin of another, using collagen to bind the two proteins together. He called them hybrids and served them to unsuspecting diners at Aponiente, his restaurant in the southern Spanish port town of El Puerto de Santa María, just across the bay from Cádiz. He discovered that fish eyes, cooked at 55°C in a thermal circulator until the gelatin collapsed, made excellent thickening agents for umami-rich sauces. Next he found th...

By Cecilia RussellMILAN, Italy, Jun 4 2020 (IPS) The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the inherent fragility of food systems, Marta Antonelli told an international video conference organised by the Barilla Center for Food Nutrition (BCFN). However, she said, it also offered an opportunity to reset the way food is produced, distributed and consumed. The pandemic disrupted the food system, triggering food insecurity and resulted in sharp increases in the cost of food – up to 10 per cent in sub-Saharan Africa. Jobs were lost, children who received one meal a day at school lost access to this source of nutrition, and ...

Discussion Each person needs to eat the right about of healthy foods to maintain a healthy body. This varies based on gender, age, activity, healthy problems, or health status. Healthy women who are moderately active and not pregnant or lactating need about 1800-2000 calories/day. Pregnant women are advised to keep the calories the same in the first trimester (about 1800 calories/day), increase ~200-300 (about 2200 calories/day)in the second trimester, and then increase ~300-400 in third trimester (about 2400 calories/day).
