Samiyah Rankins's curator insight, February 22, 3:02 PM

I chose this article simply because I love Parmesan cheese. This article gave a lot of insight on something I never thought about. When pouring shredded cheese, you don't really look at each strand to see if its really cheese. With powdered cheese there is no way you can tell if it's actually cheese or some sort of fillers in between. If this is true, there's no way consumers can be able to tell. Im not sure the necessary actions that would be taken but I hope someone is getting proof instead of just accusations. This article seems a bit informal but has accurate information and is reliable.

BEYOND CHEDDAR | On Brillat-Savarin, The Cheese Perfect For Decadent Summer Nights | Scout Magazine | On the Plate | Scoop.it
by Ashley Linkletter | Of all cheeses to write about, fresh Brillat-Savarin is perhaps the most befitting a short tome. Named after French epicurean and gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, who was especially enamoured with cheese and wrote that “a dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye…” a vivid (if hyperbolic) …

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, December 27, 2015 1:10 PM

Brace yourself: Here are 10 foods you’ll probably be sad to see go.

1. Guacamole
2. Apples
3. Beer
4. Rice and Beans
5. Seafood
6. Chocolate
7. Coffee
8. Peanut Butter
9. Wine
10. French Fries

Food may be one of the most apparent and immediate ways many of us will feel the impact of climate change. “The general story is that agriculture is sensitive,” said David Lobell, deputy director of the Center on Food Security and the Environment at Stanford University. “It’s not the end of the world, but it will be a big enough deal to be worth our concern.”

We certainly don’t need another reason to fight climate change. But a good one would be to save some of our favorite—and the world’s most important—foods from extinction.
