    Miami Art Week Serves a $1,000 Cup of Coffee by Artist Coolman Coffeedan

    Miami Art Week is upon us and, after last year’s quietude, most of us will welcome the annual parade of hype, celebrities, parties, not to mention the art that emerges every so often. In 2019, a work by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, entitled Comedian, was the talk of the town. If you don’t recall that particular piece, you might remember that it was a banana, duct-taped to a wall. The art, which sold for $120,000, was promptly torn from the wall and consumed by a performance artist named David Datuna, who filmed the snackage and flipped it into a   Read More

    Village Agricultural Cooperative helps provide healthy food for southeastern Minnesota immigrant communities

    But in Rochester there’s the Village Agricultural Cooperative, which creates opportunities for area communities to grow culturally relevant foods. Most of the growers for the Village Cooperative live in housing where they cannot grow food, or they wish to grow food to sell in local markets but can’t find farmland access. Kim Sin, founder and president of the Village Agricultural Cooperative, realized around 2018 while working with elderly members of the Cambodian community in Rochester, that many of them weren’t eating healthy. The produce they were accustomed to in Cambodia was too expensive to buy in Minnesota, said Sin, especially   Read More

    You asked … and asked … and asked. So it only felt right to compile Hy-Vee dietitians’ most frequently asked questions (and answers) about diet, food choices, healthy eating and more. Dive in and get the lowdown. Which is best — fresh or frozen veggies? Would you find it surprising to know that the bagged produce found behind the frozen doors is just as nutritious as the fresh varieties? That’s right – a veggie in any form is packed full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Think of the frozen options as a safe way to increase their shelf life.   Read More

    Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipes for Christmas snacks and nibbles | Food

    There’s only one month to go now, until lots of us get around lots of tables to share lots of food. My plan this Christmas is to make up for how little travel has been possible with a feast of flavours from around the globe: Italian parmesan, Japanese sake, African cassava, Greek feta, Middle Eastern date syrup, French brie and a Creole turkey, all bringing into question the whole notion of there being just one “traditional” way of doing things. The chairs around the table will be equally various and many, and the toasts will be to the whole   Read More

    Obesity is a social problem. Addressing it requires access to healthy food, not restrictions

    The path to a nanny state is paved with good intentions. According to local reports, the council in “the most obese area in Lancashire” is planning to place restrictions on takeaway food to control the health menace. While this isn’t a standalone measure — there is also talk of encouraging exercise and addressing mental health issues — it is of a piece with the notion that health and well-being stem primarily from the decisions individuals take — smokers get cancer, obese people diabetes and heart disease. Even sitting down — in sedentary jobs, people don’t have a choice — is   Read More

    Plant-based diets: Putting veggies at the center of our plates

    Correspondent Ben Tracy asked actress Tabitha Brown, “Did you ever think you’d be making jackfruit tacos for your lunch?” “Honey, absolutely not. Four years ago, I didn’t think I would been vegan. Who knew? Ain’t that something how life can change?” If you were looking for someone to spread the gospel of plant-based eating, Tabitha Brown would have been an unlikely messenger, considering the food on which she grew up: “Honey, I grew up on everything.
