Buying meat in Italy is not a pre-packaged affair, especially in Le Marche

Buying meat in Italy is not a pre-packaged affair, especially in Le Marche | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

URBINO, Italy – An elderly yet energetic woman backs through the curtain of wooden beads separating Machelleria Ubaldi, a butcher shop, from the sunny afternoon bustle of Via Rafaello near the center of town, still immersed in a loud and lively conversation with someone outside. Ending that exchange with a sharp laugh, she issues a quick buona sera while moving into an equally dynamic conversation with the young man behind the counter.
Buying meat in Italy is not a pre-packaged affair. Picking up steak, salami or prosciutto isn’t a case of reaching into refrigerated case and grabbing an anonymously shrink-wrapped package. It’s a trip to visit an old friend – the person who selects and cuts your dinner – as well as the line of local farmers he represents.

For nearly a decade the Ubaldi family – Davide, with his parents and younger sister – has operated the only family-owned butcher shop inside Urbino’s city walls, the Machelleria Ubaldi. Standing behind the counter, Davide slices meats and making sausages to order with customers who are considered part of the family.

Natural high: Is soil an antidepressant?

Natural high: Is soil an antidepressant? | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
British scientists have identified a particular soil bacterium they claim triggers the same serotonin-triggering neurons in the brain as Prozac.

 

"According to a report by Discover magazine, there was a definite reason for it. Scientists at the University of Bristol in England have identified a particular soil bacterium — Mycobacterium vaccae, to be exact — that just might naturally help alleviate depression.

 

Through experiments on laboratory mice, head neuroscientist Christopher Lowry and his team have evidence that the bacteria triggers the same serotonin-releasing neurons in the brain as Prozac."
