The conversation with Sarah Wiener will be held during the Breakfast in the monastery of Engelberg. You will participate in a half an hour in a Seminar and would like to before Breakfast. The offer at the small Buffet they enthusiastically: "Since we are in a monastery, where the people find their peace of mind to," she says immediately, "and here they serve industrial bread, Margarine instead of Butter, pre-packaged jam, tea and mass-produced goods of Twinings!" The fit, I would like to speak with her about food and its history.
Sarah Wiener is a restaurateur, culinary author, well-known TV-chef ("A week...") . For years , it works with a number of foundations for sustainable diet , animal welfare and, in the broadest sense, for the good taste. My initial question: How Storytelling is the food? The new-fangled word is being used often, if, for example, about the avant-garde Restaurant Noma is spoken in Copenhagen. Because there at the table tells how the fishermen bring his shells himself over and which method of preparation the chef inspired.
"to Me, such a Gastro-productions, intellectually," says Sarah Wiener. Even if it of course was their right to know where food has come from and who has produced them. If there is a need for this, but a waiter standing next to the table and makes a Declaration of how and what and when to eat, this is for the true enjoyment to be top-heavy.
food should not be touted also: you mentioned products from the supermarket that are packaged in bright colors, just to get the attention of the consumer. Of sweets, which suggested to children by advertising supposedly friendship. Of lettering, the want to convey that a chocolate bars make so much Fun. "And even the old fonts are used to clarify, as long as there is a food already. With all these funding trust is to be created."
Sarah Wiener looks familiar after a few minutes, as you sit there with your black skirt, the hair, the eye-catching cheekbones. As she holds her tea Cup with both hands and talking. What has to do with you, you have often seen on television, such as in your "culinary adventures", which they introduced to the UK, the local mountain of the world or to Asia. Apparently Twinings is enough to awaken your spirits, after a few moments, the 1962-born Viennese bright look awake.
"the food industry likes to play with stories," she says. Right, natural foods have better stories, but not a Lobby, this trump card to play. What have to do with the selection on the supermarket shelf is as big as never before: "is it this not a real choice," explains Wiener. "Because the products are made of up to 90 percent from about ten large companies and their subsidiaries." Add to this that the food be built on a few, always the same building blocks: fat, starch, and alcohols made from Corn, rice, wheat, and soy. Add flavor enhancers like salt and sugar.
The mockery with the milk
in relation to nutrition course today some things wrong, a good example of raw milk to find in the Store tend to be rare: "we are told that it is dangerous – although it contains important fatty chains, and the vital substances, and even antibiotic-like substances." Instead, they sell us a high temperature, dead industrial product, the name only milk hot. The packaging also "stays fresh longer" love it, was a mockery.
I oppose you, that the population today is interested in cooking like never before. It is chefs such as Jamie Oliver and Rick Stein's absence in times of TV-but hardly of Information. This is Sarah Wiener does not apply: "What does it profit you, if you know that a food contains citric acid? No one tells you that this allegedly harmless ingredient has nothing to do with lemon to and from the laboratory. Similarly, you can attack in combination with sugar to your teeth." Not unimportant, because citric acid is included in many products for children. Because these products would be continued without the addition of artificial acid to sweet, and thus inedible.
we are increasingly turning to design food, have effects. Our immune system fights thirty, forty years ingredients learned of our metabolism in the whole history of mankind never know – and at the end we would then have constipation, allergies, skin disorders and high blood pressure. "And we believe this to be normal, because we are getting older. But I say, This is not normal."
"I'm not a Cyborg!"
What Sarah has to say Vienna is hearty food so early in the Morning. Again and again she deals against the global players of the food industry such as Nestlé and Monsanto. Explains, why she wanted no lab eat meat ("I'm not a Cyborg!"). Why you prefer instead, on the plate, you old cow, "because she has had a nice life". What we notice is that The sentence "you must not" hear write you never.
Too negative she didn't want to come over, says Sarah Wiener after a good twenty minutes and takes a spoon of her cereal. It is the opportunity to ask questions, how to give more to the children because the right diet – one of the Central concerns of the Austrian who has initiated in 2007 a Foundation. "Go with you to the market! Let the children put the carrots touch! You cook with the Junior!" The answers Sarah Wieners are simple – but plausible. Who take it already as a child Surrogate, would you prefer a life the real food. That's why it's so important that a good taste will formed, and the longing after the Right arises.
The thing had to, so she closes her mind, there exist at least somewhere. Therefore, it is to appreciate and is essential to support regional small-scale farmers, old breeds of animals and varieties of vegetables value. "And to pay the price, the costs of such." It was the most beautiful way to save the world: to feed well.
Sarah Wiener places a bowl of the spoon in the Muesli, in a hurry and rushing to the Seminar. Your green tea is only half drunk.
