Designed to fit alongside the appliances in and blend into the décor of your kitchen, Grove Labs’ device lets you grow fruits and vegetables hydroponically, without leaving your house. The whole setup includes the hydroponic chamber, which you can monitor through the transparent encasement, as well as a mobile app to keep track of growing conditions and link up to vendors to replenish your materials. The Grove Labs team calls the contraption a grove, not to be confused with a greenhouse.

“The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future — deforestation, erosion, fresh-water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease,” reported the 2004 July/August issue of World Watch Magazine.

Kushiage, also known as kushikatsu, is a cuisine comprising skewers of vegetables (all right, and meat too) that are breaded and deep-fried, and served with a thin dip based on Worcestershire sauce. The establishments that serve it tend to be charmingly rustic and boisterous places, and I’m no stranger to them, especially in the summer months.

Children can learn to eat new vegetables if they are introduced regularly before the age of two, suggests a University of Leeds study.

Even fussy eaters can be encouraged to eat more greens if they are offered them five to 10 times, it found.

Qvänum Mat & Malt is a brewery and destillery, located in the barn of Gategården, just outside Kvänum. The farm is situated in the old village of Badene, which dates back to the 600 century. Gategården was operated by the family Hermansson and there where both cows, award-winning horses as well as hens and pigs. The village’s dairy was to be found on the farm.

Dishwasher cooking is best for foods that need to be cooked at low temperatures, Casali says. "After some experiments, I found that it wasn't just a different way to cook — it was a really particular technique," she says. "Something I was looking for years: the way to cook at low temperature at home." § Unfortunately, Casali's book appears to be available only in Italian. But the innovative chef has put together a few how-to on Vimeo, with English subtitles, describing top recipes.

COOKPAD is the largest cooking recipe sharing community in Japan with 20 million monthly unique users, including 80% of all Japanese women in their 20s and 30s. § Our 1.5 million recipes are created by passionate home chefs, and we are looking for translators (from Japanese to English) who are motivated to spread real Japanese home cooking to the world.

Thank the Maillard reaction (which occurs when the surface temperature of food is more than 300 degrees Fahrenheit) and caramelization (which kicks in at about 320 F). These chemical reactions not only bring about a color change, they also produce hundreds of flavor compounds that create the rich, savory notes and appetizing aromas we associate with roasted, grilled, and seared dishes—notes and aromas that are noticeably absent from foods cooked by wet methods like steaming, boiling, and poaching.

Scientists had struggled to find the trigger for so-called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that has wiped out an estimated 10 million beehives, worth $2 billion, over the past six years. Suspects have included pesticides, disease-bearing parasites and poor nutrition. But in a first-of-its-kind study published today in the journal PLOS ONE, scientists at the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture have identified a witch’s brew of pesticides and fungicides contaminating pollen that bees collect to feed their hives. The findings break new ground on why large numbers of bees are dying though they do not identify the specific cause of CCD, where an entire beehive dies at once.

I studien har man undersökt 27.000 män mellan 45 och 82 år under sexton års tid. Den visar att även om man räknar bort faktorer som fysisk aktivitet, sömn, matvanor och vikt så ökar risken dö i hjärtinfarkt eller någon annan hjärtsjukdom med 27 procent om man hoppar över frukosten.
