Eataly #2

30 03 2012

I carabinieri del Nas di Parma hanno sequestrato in un prosciuttificio in provincia di Modena 91 mila prosciutti crudi, per un valore di 2,5 milioni di euro, di provenienza estera, ma privi della bollatura sanitaria prevista dalla normativa comunitaria che ne avrebbe consentito la rintracciabilità. Borse, occhiali, prodotti in pelle, persino materassi. Ma il falso “Made in Italy” non si ferma neppure davanti all’agroalimentre. Anzi. E’ sempre più attaccato dai “tarocchi”, tanto che il settore, perde ogni giorno nel mondo oltre 160 milioni di euro che in un anno diventano 60 miliardi di euro.

“Un business enorme che danneggia le nostre aziende che si trovano spiazzate sui mercati”, dice la Confederazione italiana agricoltori aggiungendo che “vanno nella giusta direzione tutte le iniziative che difendono le nostre imprese nel mondo”.

Fatta eccezione per i prosciutti a Dop che garantiscono l’origine italiana, Parma, San Daniele, Toscano, Modena, Carpegna e Berico Euganeo, sul mercato è facile acquistare prosciutti che pur essendo definiti “Made in Italy”, come prosciutto nostrano o di montagna, in realtà non hanno nulla a che fare con la realtà produttiva nazionale.

Con la crisi e la necessità di risparmiare anche sul cibo, le frodi a tavola sono diventate quelle più temute dagli italiani, sei cittadini su dieci le considerano più gravi di quelle fiscali e degli scandali finanziari

Satay proves tricky for world’s best competitive eaters

SINGAPORE: Competitive eating took on an Asian flavour on Sunday at the world’s first Major League Eating Asia competition – with huge servings of otah, curry puffs and satay.

It did not take Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi long to get in the swing – perfecting his technique of swallowing without chewing. His American opponent, Joey Chestnut, who was the winner of the Major League Eating, just could not catch up with him.

In the end, Kobayashi wolfed down 5.419 kilogrammes of satay in 12 minutes, while Chestnut ate 4.08 kilogrammes of satay.

“I had just competed in a big tournament three weeks ago so my stomach capacity was enlarged already. It was just about getting used to the satay and understanding what it was,” Kobayashi said, after winning the competition.

“It was a different texture from what I’m used to. I’ve never eaten chicken in that fashion with that sauce. It was very aromatic and I should have been able to do better, but he just came out really hungry and he ate better than me today,” Chestnut quipped.

Despite Singaporeans’ love for food, it seems the nation has got a long way to go before it reaches the top of the international competitive eating game.

However, coaching clinics are being set up for finalists from this year’s event so that when the competition returns next year, they will be able to pit their skills against the world’s best.
