Food corner

"Like all foods, bread is a nexus of economic, political, aesthetic, social, symbolic, and health concerns. As traditionally the most important food in the Sardinian diet, bread is a particularly sensitive indicator of change."

Gastón Acurio on eggs

"La magia del huevo en diez movimientos: Un gesto, pasado. Dos gestos, duro. Tres, poche. Cuatro, frito. Cinco, revuelto. Seis, omelette. Siete, tortilla. Ocho, merengue. Nueve, mayonesa, Diez souffle. De todos los miles de ingredientes del mundo, solo el huevo es capaz de dar tanto por tan poco."

- The magic of the egg in ten movements: One act, passed. Two acts, hard. Three, poached. Four, fried. Five, scrambled. Six, omelette. Seven, tortilla. Eight, meringue. Nine, mayonnaise. Ten, souffle. Of all the thousands of ingredients in the world, only the egg has the capacity to give so much for so little.
