This quiet agricultural ‘moonshot’ could change the future of food

The global population is skyrocketing, the climate is changing, and diets are shifting. So how do you tackle the problem of feeding 9 billion people by 2050?

Win Friends And Influence People With The Best Fried Chicken Ever

There are a lot of simple foods that are shockingly difficult to master. Eggs can be a nightmare, burgers can be tricky, but nothing is more intimidating than fried chicken. Too soggy, breading too thick, too greasy; it seems like there are a million things that could go wrong. If you get it right though, there is really nothing better. The phrase “you don’t win friends with salad” comes to mind … The truth is, you don’t need a special touch or a secret ingredient to make great fried chicken….

Grilled Potatoes, Three Ways

We’re halfway through July. If you’re already sick of throwing corn or donuts (you bad!) on the grill, try potatoes. Surprised to hear that the starchy veg works well over a flame? We were, too, so we tried prepping them three different ways—one of which were the insanely amazing grilled garlic fries pictured above—to prove that potatoes aren’t just a delish baked addition to a Super Bowl spread. GRILLED GARLIC FRIES Perhaps the best use of spuds on the grill: Cutting them into wedges, then tossing with olive oil, garlic…

You Can Use An Ice Cube Tray To Make One Of Summer’s Coolest Snacks

As temperatures rise, the number of AC’s I own doesn’t (that’s zero, BTW), which means frozen foods become 80 percent of my diet. Currently, I’m relying on popsicles, smoothies, boozy slushies, and any other icy treats to keep myself sane and my body at a reasonable temperature. As much as I love these foods — so really, my A/C-less existence just gives me permission to indulge — the downside is the sugar crash that inevitably comes afterward. These fro-yo fruit bites provide a much needed breather from the sugar binge…

Nigel Slater’s light summer recipes

  If there is a theme running through this summer’s cooking it is that of yogurt and its strained and lightly salted cousin labneh. At breakfast, I prefer the wake-up-call sharpness of sheep’s milk yoghurt, often with a glowing puree of alphonso mango and a lightly sweetened compote of blueberries or blackcurrants. Used as replacement for some of the cream in a fruit fool, the refreshingly acidic notes of goat’s milk yogurt flatters the flavours of apricots, strawberries and raspberries, as well as making the dessert less rich. Homemade labneh,…

2 winners and 4 losers from the Senate health care bill

Mark Wilson/Getty Images The Better Care Reconciliation Act, Senate Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, would if passed lead to one of the largest redistributions of income in American history, just as Obamacare itself did. It would shift hundreds of billions of dollars from health care programs to fund sweeping tax cuts for rich Americans, radically overhaul the way the US supports elderly and disabled people, and allow states to substantially weaken insurance regulations. While it clearly does not yet have the votes it needs to pass the Senate,…
