This week FDL travelled to the Semana Mesa festival in Brazil - A food festival attended by over 11,000 people in Sao Paulo, it is a a celebration of Brazilian food which is rapidly becoming one of the hottest new trends in food the world.
With Brazil's recent economic developments and the emergence of the new middle classes the piece focused on how Brazilian food is now being presented on the world food stage. There was also a look at a unique project teaming Brazilian and Italian chefs which saw a duo of Helena Rizzo and Moreno Cedronicook together for excited guests.
Do you have a food you always go for when you're low - or a dish guaranteed to put a smile on your face ? Well this week FDL travelled to a very interesting event at the Welcome Collection in London. They, with the help of some food designers, were examining the question - Can food cure Melancholy ?
The event focused on Robert Burton's book, The Anatomy of Melancholy. An English scholar at Oxford University who in the early seventeenth century published the book which looked at how foods and certain remedies affect mood. The event was an exciting idea and featured a menu of modern interpretations inspired by Burtons recipes.
