“Since we must eat to live, we might as well do it with both grace and gusto”.
The panettone are just as exuberant as always, beautifully wrapped in colours of yellow, gold, blue (and even lime green!), heralding the onset of the festive season.
The spirit of the holiday is to give thanks, a gesture especially important this year
The focus of the movement is on mindful eating, not mindless eating. It believes that one must create memories and participate actively with food.
Exquisite and delightful, truffles are undeniably one of the greatest discoveries in the world of fine dining.
In much simpler times, food is always artisan: homemade, lovingly prepared, and created with special innovations that serve the needs of the time period. As the world became industrialised, it meant cheaper and faster options for food preparation, but at the cost of the touch of human interaction that can imbue meals with the magic that comes from cooking with love.
Dine In The Most Intimate Venue In Town
Unlike other cultures that pair cheese with aperitifs, cheese comes at the end of the meal in lieu of a sweet dessert. Cheese plates in French-themed dinners are enjoyed with guests leisurely, usually paired with fruits, nuts, wine and conversation. Not to say that cheeses don’t make an appearance in other courses of the meal, but for an authentic French experience, swap out the sweets for a cheese platter with your digestifs.
As the world moves towards ethical and eco-friendly practices, more businesses are adopting the term “responsibly-sourced” — wearing it as a badge to show how they voluntary take environmental and social factors into account when conducting company activities.
When it comes to food, responsible sourcing is all about knowing where your food comes from and the practices that contribute to its creation. Which country is it from? How were the animals raised? What kind of working conditions do the workers have? This involves understanding everything from the raw ingredients involved, the practices and environment behind the food’s harvest or production and whether those practices are sustainable in the long term.
Ultimately, responsibly-sourced food aims to ensure that the way food is produced, grown or made does not have a negative impact on animals, local workers, communities or the environment.
