Stay in! Cooks from all over the world return to the kitchen (for a day) – Italian Cuisine


Gelinaz, the global gastronomic event that for years has made the kitchens of chefs from all over the world exchange, this year says enough. Leave 148 chefs at home, cooking the recipes of others. To break down the boundaries and travel with the mind

38 countries, 138 restaurants, 148 chefs, 2200 recipes exchanged, 700 hours of preparation, 17 hours of time zone. From Ghana to the Philippines, from Camanini on Lake Garda to Rodolfo Guzman in Chile, for one night, all over the world, a menu will be prepared without borders, without borders, unique and unrepeatable.

Thirty years ago the walls were demolished, explains the presentation video of Gelinaz, showing images of Berlin 1989. Today we are reconstructing them, and the proclamations of Donald Trump, photos of clashes with the police and of violence in the squares. But sometimes, things change when you are still. So this year the event that for years has led chefs around the world to cook in other people's kitchens, launches a new provocation: stay in. No one will move, no flight, no hosted by an official visiting ambassador. The party will take place at home. The cooks will not travel anywhere but their recipes, yes.

On November 1st, each chef received 8 new random recipes from another of the participants, without knowing which restaurant and which chef. The "matrix" recipes were reinterpreted in a month by the resident chef, who became a remix, unique and unrepeatable. A Situationist tasting menu, cooked only for one evening and simultaneously all over the world, on December 3rd, for the coolest event in the world gastronomy.

We eat what's there, we don't ask for changes, additions, ingredients to remove or add. Tickets have been sold on the web. Virtually all sold out within a few days. We sit and share a world experiment with thousands of others. A closed box, improvising, exactly like the chef in the kitchen. GELINAZ is a performance, it does not aim to put dinner on the table. "GELINAZ! is a collective of chefs, created by chef, for chef ”, an experimental playground always looking for new languages ​​and unexplored collective expressions in search of the food of the future.

Everything was born in November 2005, by four chefs (Andoni Luis Aduriz, Massimo Bottura, Petter Nilsson, Fulvio Pierangelini) and over the years it has expanded to today, to 148 chefs involved and to four continents. GELINAZ has exchanged kitchens for dozens of chefs, incognito, making them cook for an audience unaware of who and what they would find in front of them. Rock’n’roll, irreverent, absolutely unpredictable, GELINAZ was the complete opposite of “four-handed dinners” and nonsense hosted, and now in fact doing vanguard once again, he said enough, and made the cooks return to their kitchens. Against the idea of ​​copyright, of borders, of walls, of travel by train, car, plane, against pollution and fatigue, one travels with the mind, without leaving home. To break down the borders.

How to recover from the return with 30 chocolate recipes – Italian Cuisine


Sad. A little discharged. Demotivated. Returning to the office after the holidays is not easy and, this year too, we feel that way. Because even if we don't remember it, even last year we tried this mix of negative emotions when we returned from vacation. We also wanted last year go back in time. Take our time. Change everything. But then it passed. It will also pass this time. But to prevent sadness from occupying our thoughts for too long, we can ask for help from a special ally: chocolate.

What we devoured the day before starting the diet, to then feel guilty. The one that must never be missing in the pantry to help us in the evenings is not the same that was very good in snack bread, when we were little. And that, come to think of it, it makes us feel happy.

The source of happiness

Some call it euphoria. Others happiness or contentment. The fact is that taking small amounts of chocolate causes positive emotions, capable of obscuring transient negativity and anxiety. Although it is still clear precisely which components are responsible for the surge in good humor, we think we need to focus on cocoa flavonoids, methylxanthines, minor amines, amides and alkaloids.

The benefits

Blood pressure reduction, increased cognitive performance and positive effects on memory. These are just some of the benefits offered by the consumption of chocolate that are associated with real antidepressant effects. Thanks to alkaloids such as salsolinol, we feel more cheerful and energetic after taking chocolate. This "doping" effect is the same that leads us to feel the desire to take on more chocolate when we take a small dose.
Let's try to resist: a small square of dark chocolate is the recommended daily dose.
Taking it in these quantities will allow us to give it to us every day, rather than swing between excesses and prohibitions.

The recipes

After exploring the reasons for our craving for chocolate, it's time to eat it. And console us a little. After all we expect an autumn full of news, new ideas and … goodies.
Starting from these 30 recipes, perfect for September, but also for the months to follow.
