Haute Cuisine Can Be Healthy

Butter and cream have long been staples of chefs at fancy restaurants. That might be changing. A handful of top chefs are voluntarily following standards set by a new system called SPE, short for sanitas per escam (Latin for “health through food” that stresses healthy, local, seasonal ingredients combined in a way that enhances their nutritional value. Time magazine reports that the program’s 90 page charter “details such things as eking more iron from plant-based foods by combining them with vitamin C-rich produce… In dishes with naturally salty ingredients like olives or soy sauce, adding foods rich in potassium…(which) can counteract salt’s effect in raising blood pressure. Tomatoes, meanwhile are better in a sauce rather than served raw because healthy oils help release the cancer-fighting compound lycopene, which is fat soluble. Fancy food that’s good AND good for you? That’s a great idea we can all live with!

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

      The Word Press program I use sends me all comments. But I have to approve them before they appear on my website’s blog. And yes, I get a ton of Spam.

  2. Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really annoying. A good website with interesting content, that is what I need. Thanks for keeping this website, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.
