Nibbles: Celebrity chef, Brazilian meeting & dessert, Citizen experiment, Phenotyping course, Fonio, Milpa, Broccoli nutrients, Biodiversity $$, Soybean history

by Luigi Guarino on April 11, 2017

  • Alexis Soyer was apparently the first celebrity chef.
  • EMBRAPA gets to grips with crop wild relatives, with a little help from their friends.
  • Did they serve brigaidero, though?
  • Take part in a crowd-sourced experiment on plant adaptation.
  • And then go and find out how the experts do it.
  • Will fonio‘s day ever come?
  • Celebrating the milpa.
  • Gotta eat your broccoli fresh for the full nutrient monty.
  • Putting (yet another) value on biodiversity. This one by adding or subtracting a species to a grassland plot and seeing what happens to C sequestration.
  • What price soybeans?

Brigadeiro saves me every time someone asks me to cook something Brazilian. For the life of me, that’s the only traditional thing I can do. Didn’t know the story behind it though :)
