food is too sweet

New Delhi: From learning grandmas recipes to traditional Uzbek home-cooking, travellers now get access to 3,000 unique recipes that are usually reserved for friends and family across seventy-five countries globally with Cooking on Airbnb Experiences.

There is no better way of getting familiar with the culture of a place than through its food. Unlike typical cooking classes, people coming together to make and share a meal creates a human connection. The new experience will be hosted by families, farmers, pastry cooks and more, with local hosts highlighting the deeper meaning behind traditional recipes and sharing stories in intimate settings around the world.

To protect the personal nature of each recipe, each experience has been vetted against guidelines inspired by Slow Food, a grassroots organisation whose mission is to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions. Through this vetting process, each host of an Airbnb Experience communicates the unique essence of every dish through their personal stories and has proven deep knowledge of the heritage of the cuisine that they share.

To promote the experience the travel portal is calling on the world to apply or nominate their favourite home cook who will win a once in a lifetime trip to Italy. There, they will learn to refine their family recipe and cement their legacy in an Airbnb cookbook, planned for 2020. The top 100 applicants will also get to study alongside experts including chef David Chang and his mom, Sherri, during one of the four, specially-organised five-day courses at Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Sciences, located within the UNESCO world heritage site in Pollenzo, Northern Italy.

Lack of ventilation ups risk of airborne transmission of Covid-19: Study

Improved indoor ventilation is an important step that can be taken to reduce the risk of infection.

Corona cases in Turkey

London, May 29 : Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have found that the lack of adequate ventilation in many indoor environments – from the workplace to the home – increases the risk of airborne transmission of Covid-19.

In a study, published in the City and Environment Interaction journal, experts from the University of Surrey (UK) said that preventing airborne transmission of Covid-19 should be the next front of the battle against the virus.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) had declared the infectious spread of SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) a pandemic after its initial outbreak in Wuhan (China). “These past months, living through the Covid-19 crisis, has been truly unprecedented, but we must turn this global tragedy into an opportunity to better prepare for similar threats,” said study author Prashant Kumar, Professor at the University of Surrey.

Improved indoor ventilation is an important step that can be taken to reduce the risk of infection.

“However, more must be done to recognise and understand the airborne transmission of Covid-19 and similar viruses, to minimise the build-up of virus-laden air in places typically containing high densities of people,” Kumar added.

According to the researchers, Covid-19, like many viruses, is less than 100 mn in size but expiratory droplets (from people who have coughed or sneezed) contain water, salts and other organic material, along with the virus itself.

Experts have noted that as the water content from the droplets evaporates, the microscopic matter becomes small and light enough to stay suspended in the air and over time the concentration of the virus will build-up, increasing the risk of infection – particularly if the air is stagnant like in many indoor environments.

The study highlights improving building ventilation as a possible route to tackling indoor transmission of Covid-19. “We discuss the need to acknowledge the airborne spread of COVID-19 inside built spaces under eased movement restrictions and the potential steps that can be taken to control it,” the study authors wrote.

As of Friday morning, the overall number of global coronavirus cases has topped 5.8 million, while the deaths have increased to more than 360,000, according to the Johns Hopkins University.
