100 years of food

20 Mar

The things we eat have changed drastically over the last century.

In the second half of the century, pill Americans enjoyed ever-more varied, year-round, fresh produce options, thanks to a growing global food market. Kiwi fruit from New Zealand, grapes from Chile, brie cheese from France, and shrimp from Thailand are now grocery store staples.

Flour and cereal product availability grew as well. Between 1972 and 2008, per capita availability of flour and cereal products increased from a record low 133 pounds per person to 196.5 pounds.

I have a hard time believing all that additional cheese was a healthy thing.

The taste of fat

9 Mar

We know that the human tongue can detect five tastes — sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami (a savoury, protein-rich taste contained in foods such as soy sauce and chicken stock),” Russell Keast, from Deakin University, said Monday.

Client of the year

2 Dec

This is an award that doesn’t get nearly enough press and I’d actually never heard of before today. What a great idea though, to encourage and reward clients for contracting excellent designers, empowering and enabling them to do great work, and staying far enough away from the project as to not completely muck it up. This year’s award went to UK culinary sensation, Jamie Oliver.
