Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 12, 2014 (FROM ITALIAN NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS) THE BEST CHEF IN THE WORLD: A SELF-TAUGHT ITALIAN Nadia Santini has recently won the coveted first prize as the best chef, bestowed by the World British magazine "World's Best 50 Restaurants." She has a profound knowl- edge of food items, a deeply-felt attention to the land, to the place where she works and food preparation. Before she decided to dedicate her life to the stoves, in 1974 at the age of 20, Nadia-(28 today), born at Mussollino (Prov. of Vicenza), received a degree from the Biological Technical Health In- stitute at Mantova. She studied the Science of Nutrition, then a real novelty. She married Antonio, a year her se- nior, while both were studying Political Science at the Uni- versity. Both dropped out of the University's studies in or- der to promote a bigger project, i.e. to bring to an interna- tional level, now global, the restaurant, "The Fisherman" (il pescatore) which her husband inherited, located in the town of Runate, between Mantova and Cremona. At the time the place was a lodging-house, originally started by Antonio's grandmother Teresa in 1925 when it was known as "Wine & Fish." Antonio's grandfather used to go fishing, bringing home all kinds of fish, which became the main dishes. A lot began to change in the 50's and later with the arrival of the newly-weds (in the 70's). But Nadia and Antonio began to change everything. Nadia took over the cooking, and con- tinued to stay put. In 1996, Nadia Santini was the first Italian to get "3 Stars" from the prestigious magazine "Michelin." In the restaurant also work her two sons: Giovanni 36, and Alberto 29. Giovanni graduated proudly from the University of Piacenza studying the Science and Technol- ogy of Nutrition, while Alberto graduated from the Univer- sity of Parma majoring in Economics and Marketing. To the question 'What is your special dish, the answer emphasized generally tends towards "vegetarianism!" LONGEVITY IS POSSIBLE, BUT ONLY IF YOU EAT A LOT OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published recently the results of a study conducted at Stockholm, at the Karolinska Institute. There was no real surprise, for we often read that a diet richly based on fruit and vegetables provides many benefits to our organism. The fruit ought to be consumed between meals while the vegetables, and the greens, should be eaten raw. A group of 71,706 individuals, Swedish men and women aged 45 to 83, were the subject of the research study which lasted 13 years, the passing of 11,000 was recorded -- mostly men (6,803) versus women (4,636). The director of the study, Andrea Bellavia, stated that the relation between fruit and vegetables has rarely occurred in other studies. It was found that a low use of fruit and vegetables/greens reduced longevity with a very high mortality rate. The ideal dosage? A daily dose of 5 por- tions of fruit and vegetables/greens must be the rule. Buon Appetito!

Guarino Patriots Strike Down Chargers in Thunderous Defensive Display The two-week, Midwest West Coast swing of the 2014 campaign is in the books. Following a tough loss in Green Bay, the Patriots brought down th~ San Diego Chargers 23-14 last Sunday at 23 Qualcomm Stadium. Behind a suffocating defen'sive perfor- 'mance, the New England Patriots earned their 10th win of the season. Jamie Collins, Darrelle Revis and the rest of the Patriots defense spent the week in Southern Cali- fornia focused on not repeating a forgettable performance versus the Packers. They re- sponded with perhaps their most dominant showing yet, stifling a Chargers attack led by quarterback Philip Rivers to the tune of 7 points allowed and 216 total yards. Revis was targeted only once all game, completely shutting down his side of the football field. However, despite Revis doing what he does, the star of the game was Collins, who was an inspired man, sacking Rivers twice while also closing passing lanes while in coverage. In all the unit collected 4 sacks and an interception. Speaking of that in- terception, how about those contributions from mid-season additions, Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas. Ayers, .primarily a pass rusher, proved to be effective in cover- age, picking off Rivers on a critical drive in the 4thquarter. The Chargers were leading by one, 14-13, and were putting together their best drive of the second half. With line- backer Dont'a Hightower inactive due to a shoulder injury, Casillas was called upon to fill in as the units signal caller. Safe to say, he did a satisfactory job in Hightower's ab- sence. The Patriots defense is proving to not only be solid in its' starting 11, but also to have talented backups that can stand in when given the Opportunity. And yet despite the thorough beat down the defense put on the Chargers offense, the game was still in doubt in the fourth quarter. With the Patriots nursing a two- point lead, Quarterback Tom Brady found Julian Edelman in coverage, and the slot receiver broke free of Chargers defenders for a 69-yard touchdown. "Tommy put a good ball out there," Edelman said. "And I did my job to get open and try to catch the ball and do something with it." After the win, a stoic Brady was grateful for his teammates on defense for bailing out the offense. "Our defense was unbelievable. They kept us in it all night. That was a defensive win right there. We made a couple plays. It was not our best football, at least offensively. But I love the way our guys played on defense." ~ ........... --~, Frankly, on this night, /~\ Brady's passing was at ~~ii times sickening In the end he had completed 28 of 44 pass attempts for 317 ~~.~J yards, 2 TDs and one awful interception 14 before the half. But his struggles were not helped by the play-calling .of coordinator Josh McDaniels, who did his best to not only out- smart the San Diego defense, but also him- self. The team got away from running the ball when the Chargers were proving to be incapable of stopping it. Following a promis- ing opening drive, disastrous play calling halted the trip through the red zone. Run- ning backs LeGarette Blount and Jonas Gray (remember him?) moved the sticks with ease. A nine-yard run by Blount set up a second and goal from the one-yard line. But McDaniels decided that passing would be the team's best chance at picking up six points. An incomplete pass and sack later and the Patriots settled for a field goal. Early in the 2nd quarter, wide receiver Brandon LaFell put the ball on the ground and safety Darrell Stuckey returned it 53- yards for a Chargers touchdown, and a 14-3 lead. This would be the last score of the night for San Diego as the Patriots defense seemed to come alive after this play. But the turning point of the game was most defi- nitely Brandon Bolden's second quarter punt block which set up the offense's first touch- down of the night and cut the Chargers lead. "The offense might have to pick the defense up one game, and the defense might have to pick up the offense. Special teams might have to pick both sides of the ball up. We have to continue to execute our game plan throughout 60 minutes, and that's what we keep on doing." Said Revis after the win. Complete team efforts are what it will take to win in the playoffs.
