Zenzero, verdure di stagione e legumi: la dieta anti freddo

Zenzero, verdure di stagione e legumi: la dieta anti freddo

Quando fa freddo dobbiamo aumentare le porzioni? Un bicchiere di vino in più aiuta? Meglio una zuppa calda o un piatto di pasta? E quanta acqua dobbiamo bere? Quando il nostro corpo è esposto a basse temperature l’organismo reagisce cercando di difendersi e cambia l’equilibrio termico con l’ambiente che ci circonda. Cosa possiamo fare per proteggerci dal freddo? Anche l’alimentazione, quello che mangiamo e quello che beviamo, può aiutarci a rimanere al caldo. Ne parliamo con la dottoressa Roberta Monzani, responsabile Anestesista del Day Hospital Chirurgico dell’ospedale Humanitas.

Black Pete: extreme right appears to stoke Dutch divisions

Protestors against the ‘vestige of slavery’ featured in Christmas celebrations were blockaded on a motorway and an ‘action group’ invaded a school

An annual debate in the Netherlands about the Christmas practice of white people blackening their faces, colouring their lips red and donning wigs to play Zwarte Piet, a sidekick to Saint Nicholas, has this year descended into street brawls, vandalism and a conviction for inciting racial hatred.

The characterisation of Zwarte Piet – or Black Pete – has divided Dutch society in recent years. In 2015 the UN stepped in to declare it was a “vestige of slavery”. Some major cities, including Amsterdam and The Hague, have refashioned Zwarte Piet’s image, or done away with him altogether, to avoid accusations of racism.

Under cover of darkness: inside São Paulo's vast illegal Feirinha night market

Every night at 1am, thousands of sweatshop workers emerge on to the streets of Brás to sell Minnie Mouse and Nike knockoffs. When 7am strikes, the police break it up. But is this nightly choreography hiding something more dangerous?

Every two months, Aziz Abdel Rahman boards a bus in Brasilia. The journey takes all night, 700 miles in total. At 2am he reaches his final stop, disembarking into the dark and crowded – and largely illegal – Feirinha da Madrugada: the secretive “little dawn market”, the biggest informal market in South America.

Rahman travels all that way to find the cheapest clothing in the country, and the few hours before the sunrise are the best to browse. Here on the streets of Brás, a downmarket but bustling neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, Rahman scours the seemingly endless racks and piles of clothing, looking for bargains such as sports trousers at R$10 (£2.30), which he will later sell back in Brasília for up to R$55.

Christie was my best friend. Her mother, Suzanne, was my mother’s best friend since high school. In adulthood, they would get together for coffee once a week. I can still remember the times I spent listening to both of them hold forth on politics and relationships at the kitchen table while Christie and I would play hide and seek.

Meghan Markle's LA neighbors: 'For us as African Americans we’re excited'

In the chichi Los Angeles suburb of View Park-Windsor Hills, residents welcomed news of the royal engagement – but took it all in their stride

Tiffini Reese beamed when told that a local woman was going to wed Prince Harry and in so doing shine a light on an area of Los Angeles known as the black Beverly Hills.

“Oh, that’s so sweet! I’m so happy for them.” Reese hesitated, then confessed. “I’ve no idea who that is. Is that the one with the red hair?”

'We're neglected as if we're nothing': sacked workers desperate to get jobs back at Madagascar's port

Union-busting and dismissals at Madagascar’s main port highlight the struggle facing workers on this impoverished island

François Bia, now a 50-year-old rickshaw driver, began working at the docks in Toamasina on Madagascar’s east coast in 1989. He carried sacks of rice on his back to and from the ships, or lashed containers to the decks using cables and metal turnbuckles. After 23 years, he was still a day labourer, working for no more than a few dollars a shift. In 2012, he joined a union, hoping to improve his pay and conditions, but managers at the port fired him, along with 42 other dockworkers who had joined the same union.

Although union-busting violates national law and international labour standards, the state-owned SMMC, which oversees the handling of non-containerised cargo, has refused to rehire the workers, pay them compensation, or recognise the union.

Argentina death flights: a son's fight for the right to testify against his father

Relatives propose amendment to the country’s penal code that would allow sons and daughters to testify against their parents in human rights cases

Pablo Verna hasn’t seen his father since a heated discussion in a Buenos Aires hotel bar more than four years ago. But the bitter 2013 conversation which led to their estrangement was not about family matters.

Over three painful hours, retired army doctor Julio Alejandro Verna grudgingly confirmed his son’s worst suspicions: during Argentina’s 1976-83 dictatorship he had sedated political prisoners so they could be thrown – still alive – from military planes into the freezing waters of the South Atlantic.

The revolution will not be televised: how a Guaraní tribe got São Paulo's attention

Driven to the brink by poverty and governmental double-crossing, São Paulo’s indigenous people seized the local TV antenna – and that was just the beginning

No one took much notice when a group of 150 disgruntled Guaraní tribespeople took control of the highest point in São Paulo, the peak of Jaraguá. The takeover, just before 4am on 13 September, was met with no resistance: one group seized the park gates and closed access, while another surrounded the TV antennas and allowed the security guard to leave at the end of his shift.

For two days the Guaraní sat in the same place that their ancestors had fled from slavery in the construction of the city, more than four centuries ago. They claimed that more of the land surrounding the peak should be theirs and want to stop privatisation of state parks – but no one was listening.

Stella McCartney calls for overhaul of 'incredibly wasteful' fashion industry

UK fashion designer backs Ellen MacArthur foundation campaign to stop the global fashion industry consuming a quarter of the world’s annual carbon budget by 2050

Clothes must be designed differently, worn for longer and recycled as much as possible to stop the global fashion industry consuming a quarter of the world’s annual carbon budget by 2050.

Fashion designer Stella McCartney condemned her industry as “incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment” as she joined forces with round-the-world sailor and environmental campaigner Dame Ellen MacArthur to call for a systemic change to the way clothing is produced and used.

Ben Stokes’ re-emergence at Canterbury only adds to English uncertainty | Vic Marks
All-rounder’s decision to head for New Zealand and play some one-day cricket would only be worth it in the highly unlikely event he is to play for England in the third Test at Perth

As General Bernard Montgomery once said – and I think rightly – “In my profession you have to mystify the enemy”. Well, Andrew Strauss, England’s cricket director, may have achieved a modicum of success in this department. The only problem is that his own side is even more confused.

On a tour of Australia the passion of every Test has a tendency to give way to pantomime in between matches. We have gone from head-butts to Heathrow within the space of 24 hours. No sooner had Strauss done his utmost to put the complexities of the Bairstow/Bancroft greeting ritual to bed the cricketing world was confronted by pictures of the alleged backside (we cannot be too careful in these litigious times) of Ben Stokes heading towards an aircraft bound for the southern hemisphere en route to Christchurch, New Zealand, where he allegedly might play cricket in Canterbury on Sunday in the Ford Trophy against the Otago Volts and perhaps even in the Burger King Super Smash T20 competition thereafter.

Formula One’s owner Liberty makes a good start but still has much to prove | Giles Richards
The switch from the Bernie Ecclestone era has been refreshing in many ways but the first season under new ownership has left many questions unanswered

When the Formula One season opened this year in Australia there was a genuine sense that it was a new start for the sport. An optimism informing fresh ideas was bouncing round the paddock with abandon. F1 had embraced new regulations, but what was driving the positivity was the sport’s new owner, Liberty Media, who had arrived with a vigorous commitment to taking it to a new and brighter future.

2017, then, was Liberty’s year zero. The company completed its acquisition of F1 in January and almost immediately removed Bernie Ecclestone, who had overseen its growth into a hugely successful and lucrative global sport. Ecclestone’s role in building the F1 behemoth is undeniable but he was also in charge while the previous owners, the private equity firm CVC, spent years doing nothing to promote the sport, instead relying on Ecclestone to ensure the constant flow of huge profits it yielded from revenues of up to $1.8bn a year.

Mark Foster: ‘I tiptoed around in the shadows for so long, but now is the time to come out’
In his first interview confirming he is gay the former swimmer admits that he has spent years not being his true self and how he feels that probably had a negative impact on his career in the pool

Sunlight streams through the huge windows that make Mark Foster’s front room such a light and airy space as he reaches the moment he has avoided for 30 years. It is a cold and beautiful morning in Hertfordshire and, from the converted barn where he lives, Foster can look down at the little river below where two swans lead their cygnets in a stately paddle.

The mood appears as serene in Foster’s home but a deeper truth is about to surface. “It’s not like I’ve been pushed to come out,” the former world champion swimmer says as he prepares to tell the world he is gay. “I’ve just swerved and swerved. Telling half-truths and not being my true self is only hurting me. I’m 47, a middle-aged man, and I’m no longer competing. And I’m not the first gay sportsman to come out. Gareth Thomas and Tom Daley led the way.”

Conor O’Keefe: ‘Last year I played in the FA Vase. Now I’m going to the Bernabéu’
The English goalkeeper landed a contract with Fuenlabrada after sending letters in gold envelopes to 48 Spanish clubs. On Tuesday he will join his team-mates at the Copa del Rey tie against Real Madrid

When Fuenlabrada’s bus rolls through the gates into the Santiago Bernabéu on Tuesday night, there will be an Englishman on board. In early July Conor O’Keefe, a 22-year-old goalkeeper and university student from Macclesfield, boarded a plane, hired a car and flew to Spain armed with nothing but a gigantic spreadsheet and Google Maps. There, he knocked on the door of every club within an hour radius until the third-division leaders invited him in; two months later, the Copa del Rey draw paired them with Real Madrid. And although he will not play, this is his team now – 48 clubs and hundreds of golden envelopes later.

“I rang my dad: ‘We’re going to Real Madrid,’” he says. Richard O’Keefe knew how long his son’s journey had been and how much further it still has to run: from Crewe to Macclesfield and a season spent travelling the north-west, turning out for nine different teams, a kind of supply goalkeeper always on call; from turning down a youth contract, instead playing as a two-year “triallist” because it was the only way they would let him sit A-levels, to chasing clubs and agents; from joining Olympic high-jumpers and a former Rada-trained actor turned athletics coach named Fuzz Caan, to the home of Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema.

The one cloud on England’s horizon – is there life beyond Eddie Jones? | Robert Kitson
Finding a successor to the World Rugby Coach of the Year in 2019 is already concentrating minds at Twickenham and the search may lead to the Premiership

The choice of Eddie Jones as World Rugby Coach of the Year was hardly the most startling news ever to emerge from Monte Carlo. Like a race leader at the Monaco Grand Prix, opportunities to overtake his England side have been few this calendar year, with only Ireland doing so back in March. England still lifted the Six Nations title for the second successive year and under Jones have won 22 of their 23 games.

Arsène Wenger rules out selling Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil in January
• Arsenal manager insists both players will remain at club until summer at least
• Wenger says they could leave in January if ‘something unbelievable happens’

Arsène Wenger has for the first time explicitly ruled out the possibility of selling either Alexis Sánchez or Mesut Özil in January, saying both players would remain at Arsenal until the end of the season “unless something unbelievable happens”.

Asked about the players’ futures on Tuesday, Wenger said: “I’m not the only one who can decide that. They have a say in that as well.” A few minutes later he was asked if he could, in fact, rule out a mid-season departure. “Yeah, I rule it out,” he said. “Look, I do not think every day about that. As long as they are here they have to give their best for the team and for the club. In my head, they stay until the end of the season. That’s the decision I took at the start of the season. Unless something unbelievable happens there’s no reason why that should change.

The Final Word: Ashes 2017-18 – Cameron Bancroft's debut and that head-butt – podcast

In the second episode of The Final Word, Adam Collins and Geoff Lemon discuss how Australian opener Cameron Bancroft didn’t just make unbeaten 80 to win an Ashes Test, he also defused an international incident while delivering a comedy routine. Not bad for a batsman on debut. Meanwhile, they revisit that head-butt, and Jonny Bairstow’s explanation of things, which failed to remotely explain anything. There is also a thorough analysis of everything from the first Ashes Test in Brisbane: Steve Smith is a genius, England let a chance slip and the bouncer wars may just be beginning

Australia’s Cameron Bancroft takes strange Ashes day in his stride | Adam Collins
Amid the head-butt controversy and being target of jokes over bedroom wall posters, the batsman defied it all to help break an 87-year-old record

Cameron Bancroft had quite the Monday morning. Waking up, the Australian batsman’s head was all over the back pages. Not for keeping that head during the previous evening’s half-century, but because Jonny Bairstow had decided to give it a nudge with his own. As we later learned, this is the Englishman’s preferred style of greeting.

Bancroft then went out to the middle to finish the job he had started with David Warner, collecting the 170 they needed for victory, overtaking an 87-year record for the highest unbeaten opening partnership in a successful Test chase. An exceptional press conference followed, reducing the captain, Steve Smith, to hysterics while deftly quelling an international incident. All before lunch.

As an actor, Meghan Markle comes from a long line of trailblazing women | Rebecca Rideal

Meghan Markle is to marry Prince Harry. While many might argue that the monarchy is an outdated institution, we cannot ignore the long-overdue sea change that the engagement of a prince to an American actor has wrought. Alongside the fact that Markle is a Roman Catholic, she also, as the BBC put it, “brings something different to the British royal family. She is American, divorced, an actress and mixed race”.

Why is mental illness so often blamed for US mass shootings? | Mary O’Hara

It perpetuates ugly stereotypes and distracts us from the dearth of care – most US citizens with a mental health condition don’t receive the treatment they need

Attempts to blame mass shootings in the US, like the recent one in a Texas church that killed at least 26 people, on mental illness casually propagates wrong-headed connections between extreme violence and mental illness. This has a tendency to drown out the voices of those who correctly point out that people with mental health problems are far more likely to be victims of violence than to perpetrate it. It also cements ugly stereotypes, perpetuates the stigma that people with serious mental health problems frequently encounter and serves as a distraction from the dearth of care and treatment for people who need it most.

People with mental health problems have long borne the brunt of America’s deficient healthcare system. In Britain, meanwhile, the consequences of long-term underfunding and lack of parity with physical health in the NHS continues to take a huge toll. Even after reforms ushered in by Obamacare with the Affordable Care Act and expansion of the federal insurance programme Medicaid, which finally made it easier to access insurance and vital treatments, millions remain uninsured – including many with serious mental health conditions. And, as the blizzard of attacks on Obamacare have continued, there are genuine worries about what the implications for access to mental health services might be.

To find the extremism behind the Egypt terror attack, start with anti-Sufi preachers | HA Hellyer
Sufism is integral to Islam. The extremist ideology that insists otherwise ignores history and distorts the truth

On Friday, more than 300 Muslim worshippers were murdered in a mosque, and scores more injured, by presumably extremist Islamists in Egypt. There are quite likely a few reasons why this attack took place when it did, including the rejection of radical groups by the residents of this northern Sinai village. But one reason is a deeply ideological one, which relates to the Sufi tendency of many of those massacred. That ideological component goes far beyond this particular attack – and, indeed, beyond one particular group. It is a problem that Muslim communities the world over must all tackle – a virulent strain of extremist thought that ironically rejects orthodoxy, while insisting it is the most orthodox.

Extremism is not an intrinsically Muslim problem, and it ought not to be considered as such

Liberalism has eaten itself – it isn’t very liberal any more | Tim Farron
British liberalism is founded in the battle for religious liberty. But in discarding Christianity, liberalism has gained ascendancy and lost itself in the process

• Tim Farron, MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, is former leader of the Liberal Democrats

When a liberal turns out to be an evangelical Christian, people are surprised or confused. If you are one of those who are surprised and confused, then you are a victim. A victim of liberalism’s comprehensive triumph – where the main loser has been … liberalism.

British liberalism is founded in the battle for religious liberty. The nonconformist, evangelical Christian groups that were persecuted by a society that favoured adherence only to the established church built a liberal movement that championed much wider liberty, for women, for other religious minorities, nonreligious minorities, for cultural and regional minorities, for the poor and vulnerable.

Labour’s review of candidates is not a purge: it’s what’s known as democracy | Owen Jones

Hide your kids: those dastardly undemocratic reds are coming again! The front page of one Murdoch outlet today carries wild reports of “Moderates forced out by hard left in Labour purge”.

What has actually happened is this: Labour is choosing candidates to stand as councillors in next year’s local elections. In some cases, members have democratically decided that some sitting councillors should face an open contest. This happened automatically until a rule change last year. Calculating that they will lose to a leftwing alternative, some have stood down. Others have lost. This is not a “purge”. This is what is known as “democracy”.

Is chronicling Indigenous despair the only way we can get on television? | IndigenousX

This week the second series of Struggle Street airs on Australian television bringing our neighbourhood of Inala into the national spotlight. According to the promo, season two of Struggle Street tells us “what happens when your luck runs out”. As a blackfulla living in Inala, I guess we must be some of the most unluckiest people on earth.

While I don’t question the intentions of those involved in the production of Struggle Street, or the genuine struggles and strengths of the individuals featured this season, I remain unconvinced of the transformative promise of the show upon its viewers. It is entertainment. And as a blackfulla, I am tired of entertaining white people by showcasing our despair.

The true story of the fake US embassy in Ghana

Last year, the US state department said it had uncovered a fake embassy in Accra that had been issuing a stream of forged visas. The story went viral – but all was not as it seemed. By Yepoka Yeebo

On Friday 2 December 2016, a curious story appeared on the website GhanaBusinessNews.com. “Ghana security authorities shut down fake US Embassy in Accra,” the headline declared. For a decade, the story went, there had been a fake US embassy in the Ghanaian capital. The fraudsters behind it had flown the American flag from their building and even hung a portrait of Barack Obama on the wall. The criminal network behind the scam had advertised on billboards and prowled the most remote villages of west Africa, searching for gullible customers. They brought them to Accra, and sold them visas for as much as $6,000 (£4,495).

The story was an immediate hit. “In less than an hour we were getting 20,000 views on the website for that story alone,” Emmanuel Dogbevi, the website’s managing editor, told me. Two days later, the news agency Reuters picked up the story and it swiftly became an international sensation.

How Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It reboot takes aim at gentrified Brooklyn

Lee’s 10-part Netflix remix of his 1986 comedy takes place in a neighborhood that’s become overpriced for and underpopulated by a community squeezed out

Late in the series She’s Gotta Have It, the 10-episode Netflix reboot of Spike Lee’s 1986 film, an unnamed vandal begins painting bright green letter Gs on to the million-dollar brownstones in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Fort Greene. The G, it is supposed, stands for “gentrification”, which is what makes the brownstones cost that much in the first place, and invites cartoonishly uptight white women, such as the character Bianca, who wakes up to find two such emblems spray-painted on her building, into the neighborhood.

Why climate change is creating a new generation of child brides

As global warming exacerbates drought and floods, farmers’ incomes plunge – and girls as young as 13 are given away to stave off poverty

It was the flood that ensured that Ntonya Sande’s first year as a teenager would also be the first year of her married life. Up to the moment the water swept away her parents’ field in Kachaso in the Nsanje district of Malawi, they had been scraping a living. Afterwards they were reduced to scavenging for bits of firewood to sell.

So when a young man came to their door and asked for the 13-year old’s hand in marriage, the couple didn’t think about it for too long, lest he look elsewhere. Ntonya begged them to change their minds. She was too young, she pleaded. She didn’t want to leave. But it was to no avail. Her parents sat her down and spelled it out for her: the weather had changed and taken everything from them. There was not enough food to go around. They couldn’t afford another mouth at the table.

Battle of the Sexes review – a winner in straight sets

Emma Stone and Steve Carell transport us back to 1973’s famous tennis showdown between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs

The stranger-than-fiction story of how the tennis courts of America became a gender battlefield in the early 70s was brilliantly told in James Erskine and Zara Hayes’s 2013 documentary The Battle of the Sexes. About 90 million people watched Billie Jean King take on self-proclaimed male chauvinist pig Bobby Riggs in the titular 1973 game, which was less a tennis match than a seismic sociological standoff. This dramatisation revisits those carnivalesque events in splendidly springy fashion, achieving the quadruple grand slam feat of being emotionally engaging, politically intriguing, dramatically gripping and frequently very funny.

Battle for the mother land: indigenous people of Colombia fighting for their lands

The 50-year civil war is over but, in the Cauca Valley, indigenous communities are on frontline of fight against drug gangs, riot police and deforestation

In pictures: Colombia’s land battles shatter the peace in Cauca Valley

A green-and-red flag flies over a cluster of bamboo and tarpaulin tents on the frontline of an increasingly deadly struggle for land and the environment in Colombia’s Cauca Valley.

It is the banner for what indigenous activists are calling the “liberation of Mother Earth”, a movement to reclaim ancestral land from sugar plantations, farms and tourist resorts that has gained momentum in the vacuum left by last year’s peace accord between the government and the leftwing guerrillas who once dominated the region – ending, in turn, the world’s longest-running civil war.

'The threats continue?’: murder of retired couple chills fellow activists in Turkey

The killing of two activists who successfully campaigned to shut down a mine has shocked environmentalists in Turkey who fear their deaths will embolden others to kill to protect their profits

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

Cedar branches whisper in the Anatolian breeze. Twigs crunch underfoot. A truck rumbles from a distant marble quarry. The crack of a hunter’s rifle echoes through the forest.

The sounds of tranquility and violence intermingle at the remote hillside home of Aysin and Ali Büyüknohutçu, the Turkish beekeepers and environmental defenders whose murder in Finike earlier this year has sent a chill through the country’s conservation movement.

‘We lost a great leader’: Berta Cáceres still inspires as murder case takes fresh twist | Liz Ford

As friends and followers of the late Honduran activist continue her battle for indigenous land rights, their cause has been boosted by a damning legal report

María Santos Domínguez heard about the death of her good friend Berta Cáceres on the radio. She had just given birth to her youngest daughter, so she wasn’t with Cáceres the week she was murdered.

“It was a double blow because we were very close, we worked together in the communities,” said Santos Domínguez, a coordinator for the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organisations of Honduras (Copinh), the organisation Cáceres co-founded 24 years ago to stop the state selling off the country’s ancestral lands to multinational companies.

From Rue Jo Cox to Place Victor Hugo via Gare Rosa Parks: how France honours the dead

France has a long history of naming roads or train stations after notable people – and not just its own. The Burgundy town of Avallon followed the tradition by naming a street after the Labour MP

In France, recognition for public service and achievement comes in the form of a Légion d’honneur if you’re still alive, or a street name – or train station – when you’re dead.

In Paris, more than 100 rues, places and boulevards are dedicated to mathematicians alone, according to City Hall, including Isaac Newton, Galileo, Nicolaus Copernicus and Leonhard Euler.

Profumo had long-term relationship with Nazi spy before 60s sex scandal

Tory MP John Profumo met Gisela Winegard in Oxford in 1936 and kept in touch with her for 20 years, according to MI5 files

John Profumo, the Conservative minister who resigned over an infamous 1960s sex scandal, had previously had a long-running relationship with a glamorous Nazi spy who may have tried to blackmail him, newly released MI5 files reveal.

Gisela Winegard, a German-born fashion and photographer’s model, met Profumo in Oxford in 1936 when he was an undergraduate and kept in contact with him for at least 20 years during which time she ran a Nazi secret information service in occupied Paris, had a child with a high-ranking German officer, and was imprisoned for espionage on the liberation of Paris in 1944.

Put down the cotton buds – a quick guide to cleaning ear wax

It’s official: syringing water to clean your ears is not recommended by health professionals. So, what should you do to keep your ears wax-free?

Ears that are blocked with wax should not be syringed. For thousands of years, the syringe has been the ear doctor’s tool of choice (Roman author Celsus wrote about it in De Medicina), but now the health watchdog Nice says a syringe pumping water into the ear is “potentially harmful”. Why?

“You can’t control the pressure; you don’t know how hard it is blasting water into the ear,” says Prof Tony Wright of the UCL Ear Institute. Electronic irrigators, which Nice recommends, allow the otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist) to control pressure, but they are still only an update of the syringe. So, here are the dos and don’ts of safe ear wax removal.

Nigel Slater’s Christmas: roast goose, apple sauce, stuffing & gravy

Nigel Slater’s festive recipes and tips for Observer Food Monthly. Today, roast goose with apple sauce, lemon potato stuffing and marsala gravy

I love the smell of a goose as it roasts, the sweet savour of its meat, the lashings of fat it gives us to play with. The flavour of the meat is magnificent. By that I mean full, deep, rich and earthy.

It has been my Christmas bird of choice for 20 years or more, but it is not without its downside. Even the largest bird is unlikely to feed quite as many as a turkey of similar weight. The shape, long and elegant, means you need a large oven and an equally large roasting tin. The fat that seeps out as it cooks, however delicious and useful, can be a danger. It needs removing from the roasting tin carefully. Another downside is that, as the flesh cools, it firms up, rendering it slightly less useful for leftovers. (For sandwiches slice it very thinly.)
