Stop sneering at those food lovers Snapchats taking their meals: the artists porn plate of food over the past 500 years.
After analyzing 750 pieces of European and American art from 1500 to 2000 AD, a new study from Cornell University Food and lab brands and found that the most commonly painted meals were decadent, such as shellfish and pasta dishes. These foods did not represent a typical follow the diet, making it equivalent to oil painting of Instagrams cut in Dominique Ansel Bakery and if Coco.
“People who love to take snapshots of their food, and posting on social media are often used as evidence of the extent of out of control of our world,” Brian Wansink, lead author of the study and director of the Food and lab brands, says the publication. “But this is nothing new. The artists painted meals glorified on the basis of desire rather than fact.”
Take, for example, a painting of Dutch artist Pieter Claesz in “Tafel MIT Hammer” ( “plate with lobster”) from 1641, which depicts the platters of lobster, oysters and lemon.
The oysters were “not part of the typical diet in the Netherlands,” says Wansink. “And where is the nearest lemon tree in Amsterdam? Plates like this mainly to emphasize the power sailing in the country. This was an ambitious foods and a status symbol.”
So stop worrying about each of those images for brunch refers to the end of civilization – and one day they might be hanging in a museum.
The Indian state that is obsessed with beef fry
Not many people associate India with beef. Spirituality Yes,
maybe the plant, but certainly not beef.
But then it may not have been to Kerala,
the State of South India that loves beef – preferably fried.
Beef fried Kerala is the stuff of legend.
Is to provide the best kind, I was told, in the little shops on the side of the road, indescribably so you may miss them altogether if not for the smell wafting out.
It’s really delicious aroma with hints of coconut and curry leaves, cinnamon, cloves, coriander powder and cold toast.
I visited one of these shops, the hotel Paputty called.
Paputty do not bother with unnecessary elements such as menus. If you had bothered to come in, it’s supposed to want fried beef.
This is the only thing the hosts, Harry Lal and Ranjit Palestinian Authority, want to eat, but to humor me that they ordered a lavish including fry beef and curry beef spread, beef roast, as well as Kerala bread essence, “Barantha Malabar” and thin rice noodle called “idiyappam”.
“When I put the beef fry in my mouth, my tongue tells me I’m in the real heaven now,” Harry tells me.
The key to this dish is “heavenly” is coconut, and a selection of spices Kerala, and a lot of patience.
To make fried beef or authentic “Thanga Kotthu Irachi”, and the meat should be stir-fried along with coconut flakes on a slow fire for half a day.
