Mealworms, Algae Make A Tasty Dish At London Fest |Nayab Khan

India Knight and Danny Jack use meal worms, algae, tree sap and homegrown flowers in a delicious spread served in a tree house to get their customers thinking about where their food comes from and its impact on the planet.


In a project subsidised by the global health foundation, the Wellcome Trust, Knight, a micro-biologist by training, and Jack were cooking 40 covers twice a day from a make-shift kitchen at the base of a tree at the Shuffle Film Festival in an East London park.
The Symbiosis Restaurant is a key attribute of the Shuffle film festival curated by “Shallow Graves” film director Danny Boyle who was behind the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
The ethereal restaurant, around 30 m (yards) above ground in the canopy of the lush, overgrown Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, was structured by Jess Sutton and features lightbulbs using bio-luminescence extracted from squid, an ingredient that features in one of the starters.
“It’s an inspirational space and I love the way they use organic ingredients and the impression behind it,” said Ilaria Leone, a content manager at an interior design company. “It kept you thinking as you walked off through the cemetery.”
Each dish has a title that explains a relationship between the ingredients. To serve as parasitism, a tacos dish uses a fungus that causes corn smut, the chicken tacos dish that eventually kills the corn on which it lives, and Knight says that this serves as what humans are in danger of doing to the planet they depend on to live.
“The use of cows for meat, for example, is bad for the planet and bad for humans, as well as the animals,” she told Reuters during a busy deal.
“Land needs to be cleared for the cows to graze on, and the meat is not good for human health.”
She hopes that representing the food in the tree house will remind diners of how, in other parts of the world, trees are being cleared to make way for cattle to graze.
The food is elegantly presented, and features edible flowers such as violets grown in Knight’s own garden and herbs growing in the cemetery park, which is surrounded by tower blocks in the gritty district of Mile End.
But it is meal worms grown in east London, and served in dumplings fermented with Chinese vinegar, that represent the direction people should be looking to source their protein in future.
Using insects for sustenance will enable humans to wean themselves from the destructive mass production of protein involved in producing meat and some vegetable crops, Knight said.

sunyuan pengyu  Two Chinese Artists Created This Terrifying Hyper-realistic Sculpture Of The Falling Angel  Must Link - human like ‘Angel’ has fallen out of the skies over China. The immensely human like creature with what seems to be angel wings as arms appears to have drop down from the sky in China’s capital.
But, before you lose your breath, the exceedingly realistic work was maked by Chinese artists, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu. The pair is known for blurring the lines between art and reality by using resources such as human body fat in their work.
Their latest piece, permit ‘Angel’ has just been installed in China’s capital, publicize People’s Daily Online. It attributes an old lady prostrating on the ground with featherless wings on her back, has shocked people on Beijing Street. This piece of work is made of silica gel, fiberglass, and stainless steel etc.
The intension behind the ‘shockingly realistic’ angel is to highlight the tension and changeover between the supernatural and the mundane. The angel, a transcendent being, has become powerless, impotent to carry out God’s will, or to help those who believe in its existence, foreign media reported.
‘Angel’ is the brainchild of Beijing artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu, who have been known to create artwork from real human corpses and flesh.
Their current piece is made from silica gel, fibreglass, stainless steel and woven mesh, Bored Panda reports, but that doesn’t mean it looks any less real.

School Bans Spicy Snacks After They Cause Boy To Stop Breathing|Amir GM

Doritos Roulette

School says the Doritos (snacks), which are 10 times hotter than a jalapeno, can cause “severe distress”

A school in Britain has banned the Doritos, billed as the hottest crisp of Britain, after they cause a student to stop breathing!

Teachers at the George Pindar School said that these spicy snacks – that are the 10 times more hotter than a jalapeno,  are a health and safety risk.

The secondary school in Scarborough sent a letter to parents warning them the snack can cause “severe distress” and advised kids to steer clear.

Doritos warning

The fiery flavor has already been outlawed in the United States and Doritos boast on its website the snack will “leave you close to tears”.

One parent said: “You don’t want to be putting something in your children’s packed lunches that’s going to leave them unwell. “It’s good the school are doing something about it.”

A school spokesperson said:

“In relation to the cautionary note in our newsletter with regard to the Doritos Roulettes it was placed in there after an incident with a student where they had experienced some difficulty breathing after eating one.The student had a pre-existing respiratory condition which clearly made them sensitive to the hot element of the Doritos chip.”

The crisps were launched in April and one in every handful is coated with a fiery flavouring which measures 78,000 units on the Scoville Heat Scale – a Scotch Bonnet pepper rates between 100,000 to 350,000.

When they were launched a Doritos spokesman said:

“There’s a warning on the pack for a reason – the invisible hot chips are exactly that.They’re hotter than most of the spiciest dishes out there so youre going to want to have a glass of milk at the ready in case you get one!”

A Doritos spokesman said:

“We warn people to expect a seriously spicy experience with Doritos Roulette and we make this clear on the pack and in our adverts.The front of the pack states ‘Warning: Some of these chips are ultra spicy’, and we also warn that Doritos Roulette are not recommended for young children.”
