The Future of Food
Stove Top Table
After standing in painfully fashionable footwear all day, the last thing I want to do is hover over a stove and pretend I know how to make dinner. Now I can kick off my shoes and cook right at my Cook N Dine table. It’s like your own Korean barbecue, only the center of this futuristic stainless steel table conveniently sinks into a concave bowl to catch simmering sauces when heated (goes up to 430 degrees). As if dinner never happened, the table reverts to a flat surface. Now I just pray they invent a robotic chef that can cook for me. A girl can dream, can’t she?
Got camel’s milk?
Forget about soy milk, a camel latte just might be the newest addition to the Starbuck’s roster. The U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization has recently been pushing for the sale of camel’s milk to Western countries, including America and Europe. Why?
- 3 X more vitamin C than cow’s milk
- 10 X more iron than cow’s milk
- Lower in saturated fat than cow’s milk
- Richer in vitamin B than cow’s milk
- Richer in vitamin D than cow’s milk
- Acts as an aphrodisiac
Consumed regularly by many Arab countries, camel’s milk tastes saltier than cow’s milk (think mozzarella cheese). In an interview with BBC News, FAO expert, Tony Bennett, says, “The potential is massive. Milk is money.” In fact, experts estimate that camel’s milk could be a ten billion dollar market (little stock tip;).
Who knows? Some day in the not so distant future, we could live in a world with camel ice cream and cheesecake. Yummy…
Until we eat again,
