Re: When someone lists cook as a skill what is expected?

Some interesting info on farmed vs wild at salmon confidential.ca .It may come to pass that we won't have a choice at the table. The shortage of prawns at the market is because of a bacteria wiping out Asian farmed product,but that's nothing compared to the loss of our Pacific wild salmon. Started commercially fishing in1953 and lament the current state of muzzled science.

Foodstocks get wiped out or consumed, that's just the way it always has been. Passenger pigeon was cheap meat. Lobster was trash food for the poor. Asian farmed product can be taken three times daily instead of pills, they've been so reliant on antibiotics for so long.

And as much as I'd like to see swordfish come back as a foodstock, on the other hand maybe I should enjoy it while I still can. For dinner.

I've been wondering how long it will be until 3 D printing technology gets applied to food.

Must be April 1 again. Nothing in that article says anything at all about what the 3d printer is expected to do. Make pretzels in exotic shapes by sintering the dough mix?

Re: When someone lists cook as a skill what is expected?

HS .... that attitude is to me really sad. That someone should suggest trashing specifically foodstocks and by insinuation trashing the planet is the way to go is something I find quite distressing.

This morning I was listening to an announcement of a new food source for farmed prawns (shrimp) that has been developed by the CSIRO in Australia. (See report below). what stood out for me was the statament that approx one third of all seafood out of the ocean is ground up to produce feed for aquaculture. This new source does not rely on further degrading the marine ecosystem simply in order to feed a farmed animal.

For mine that is a far better attitude than eating endangered species just in case the opportunity is not there in the future.

whoops.. forgot the link.

Re: When someone lists cook as a skill what is expected?

td, there comes a point when you realize you can't save the world and the world will aggressively fight anyone trying to save it. There's a thing called belligerently ignorant, lots of folks don't know the facts and don't want to be bothered by them. Mobocracy.

So, one can keep trying to fight global warming, and try to stop all sorts of popular things (like the SUV craze for solo drivers) or one can accept the inevitable, and try to at least enjoy the ride. Species have always gone extinct, that's actually the norm. Gloabl sea levels have moved up and down a hundred meters, that's also the norm. And if we manage to accelerate the trends, turn our farmland into desert and flood out our major cities, well, the Norwegian rats and cockroaches will not complain in the least.

Its all a matter of perspective, and getting tired of banging one's head against the wall. My generation preached "ecology" and "conservation" for so many years...and then somehow decided plastic water bottles were better than public water fountains or canteens. Damfino, but the mob has spoken. The job of Superman is overworked and underpaid.

Re: When someone lists cook as a skill what is expected?

Yeah, I get where you are coming from and to some extent can understand your disillusion but still find it sad. I just try to work on the basis that if I try and do vaguely the right thing then maybe just maybe that makes some difference.

As an example using your Swordfish, I won't eat it under normal circumstances but I figure I can hardly ask someone else to not eat an endangered species while I'm barbecuing a Giant Panda.

I'm not trying to be lunatic fringe green here. There is much that I do that I shouldn't and there are elements of the radical green agenda I disagree with but in the main I try to do what I consider the right thing.

This is the moral equivalent of saying, you can try to stop crime, but you never will be able to, so you might as well just rape, pillage, and enjoy the ride.
