Delicacies from Le Marche travel to the Food Salon in Paris | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

PARIS Oct. 24 – Sial, the International Food Salon of Paris, organized once very two years, is currently taking place in the Villepinte Fair facilities. The Marche region is represented by 10 companies, participating under the Region’s brand and Marchet, the specialized Chamber of Commerce Ancona agency for internationalization. Operators’ participation in the past three days has been relevant. “Regardless of the current crisis – says Paolo Petrini, vice president and assessor to Agriculture – the food and wine sector is performing better than expected.” The Marche products are exposed in the Italian Section managed by ICE in Pavilion 1. Other firms from the region are present as independent agents and through other representatives. Clearly, this 2012 edition is dominated by young entrepreneurs, who work with honey and wine and were selected by the Ministry for Agricultural Policies and the new Marche Bio Consortium – also present at the Salon in Pavilion 8, dedicated to bio products. The initiative is the fruit of the collaboration between the Marche Region and the Ancona Chamber of Commerce, that was able to introduce regional products in an international fair, with operators from all over the globe.

Healthy Pasta from Le Marche: FiberPasta, Monsano | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

FiberPasta is a dietetic pasta having the same pleasant taste as traditional Italian pasta, despite containing 15% of fibre, that means more than twice the amount of fibre of dark whole-wheat pasta. FiberPasta is made with 98% durum wheat and the addition of 2% inulin (prebiotic soluble fibre).
The high amount of soluble and insoluble fibre contained in FiberPasta is useful for DIABETES, OVERWEIGHT, CHOLESTEROL and CONSTIPATION.
FiberPasta:

delays carbohydrate absorption and contributes to weight reduction and cholesterol level control. increases the sensation of satiety with no swelling in the belly and contains 20% fewer calorie than the regular pasta. stabilizes intestinal functions and reduces constipation problems. is a low glycemic index food (the soluble fibre allows to delay and reduce the glycemic peak). is suitable for diabetic people, as stated by the Italian Ministry of Health decree. provides you more energy for a long time, thanks to the slow carbohydrate absorption. For this reason FiberPasta is really suitable for sport diet. contains no bran lignin that gives dark colour and unpleasant taste, and is the responsible for causing the reduction of mineral absorption.

Cheeses Slower than Slow Food: The Beltrami Family

Cheeses Slower than Slow Food: The Beltrami Family | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

Vittorio Beltrami is a cheese extremist, a philosopher, an Italian Einstein (with matching hairstyle), and a village madman. He confronts everybody around him with his “I am more Slow Food than Slow Food” philosophy, whether they will listen to him or not.

“Too much technology! Everything should be made by manually! Goats are as smart as people! Nobody makes cheese like I do anymore! Slow Food has turned into a company!”

The tirade starts passionately and angrily, but for the patient ones who continue to listen to him, it ends with hope and friendliness. And, if you’re a woman, with a kiss on the hand.

Because I didn’t know what to do with six weeks of summer holiday, I spent two weeks working for this character. I heard the monologue above many times, directed at many different victims: customers in the cheese shop, tourists, his employees, or just random passers-by. I noticed that most of them actually listened to him and respected his authority on these matters. Maybe because his small, round goat cheese (Caprino) and cave-aged sheep cheese (Pecorino di Fossa) are actually really impressive, or maybe because of his olive oil, which can sometimes be found in the top ten of Italy. Maybe this was not a bad place for a summer job after all…

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.
