In search of new stimuli for the second part of Ramadan, we asked our followers to participate in a survey on Instagram, the new column is a direct emanation of it. A union of faith and taste, perfect ingredients to best complement the longest month of the year.
The magnificent 15
The Quran expressly mentions as many as 15 food products, flavors that have remained unchanged since the dawn of time, acquiring new meanings precisely for their role in this book. Elements such as honey or milk are transformed, going from a mere product to something more, capable of leaving its mark on history. In fact, the history of man revolves around food, forced to follow the desires of the stomach regardless of their fame and talents.
It does not matter if you are the first of the prophets or the last of the extras, the organism must however be nourished, preferably with favorite dishes and ingredients, an additional stimulus to the great desire. The Quran, from this point of view, provides us with an incredible vastness of solutions, touching both scenes of complete despair, and other heavenly and full of pleasure. A small journey that will allow you to observe with different eyes what you keep in the kitchen, the secret guardian of times that seem far too distant.
Mediterranean diet but not only
Although the strong impact of the “Mediterranean diet” is inevitable, there are also great contaminations from South-East Asia, a place that has given rise to many incredible species, still appreciated today in world gastronomy. In addition to “standard” foods, such as olives and onions, we will also have to deal with distant flavors but rooted in our history, such as banana and ginger, 2 amazing ingredients for properties and characteristics.
We hope that it will also be a good opportunity to stimulate the imagination of our readers, leading them to new combinations but rich in substance, which can decorate these last days of abstinence with taste.
