Rio's Recipe For The Olympic Games
It's been one year since the 2016 summer olympics in Rio. We're taking a look at an article from our second issue that explore the logistics of feeding 800,000 athletes, officials and tourists.

The usual weather in Rio de Janeiro during winter is somewhere between 71 F and 86 F. Around 9 a.m. in late July, the sun shines strong on the horizon. Rather than enjoying the warm winter weather last year, Romano Fontanive, the executive chef at Sol Ipanema Hotel, was exasperated. That’s because two weeks before the Olympic Games began last August, he was dealing with a significant schedule change: having to purchase food for the restaurant at 7 a.m. instead of at midnight. The shift had more consequences than simple inconvenience. No air conditioning system can prevent what the heat, sun and long lines of traffic in Rio can do to a lettuce leaf at that time of day.

Mapping the Bite: Bringing Visibility to the Food Movement and the Movement of Food

For SXSW 2016 we partnered with Austin restaurant El Naranjo to track the ingredients in the dish: pork skewers with pumpkin-seed green pipian.

Every bite has a story. Some are long and arduous, clocking in miles of travel, over oceans and across vast landscapes. Others are just a few feet, from a backyard garden to a dinner plate. Most, however, are a combination of these. Such is the case with the bite Food+City mapped for the 2016 SXSW FoodTech event at El Naranjo in Austin. Read more.
