The cheapest of the starters is gratinated onions “in the Parisian style”. We’re told it has the flavour of French onion soup. It makes us yearn for a bowl of French onion soup. It is mostly black, like #nightmares, and sticky, like the floor at a teenager’s party.

The paper, published on March 2 in Science, finds that many domesticated trees and palms are five times more likely to be over-represented in the Amazon than are non-domesticated ones. The researchers also found that the domesticated plants tended to cluster around the remains of pre-Columbian settlements—or areas where people lived prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus. They suggest that this pattern could help other scientists to discover as yet unknown ancient settlements in the Amazon.
Signed by dozens of botanists, ecologists and archaeologists, it draws a surprising balance of 1,170 studies of forest plots distributed throughout the Amazon and 3,000 archaeological sites excavated. The authors examined the abundance of 85 tree species used by Native Americans. For their food (cocoa, dates, Brazil nuts ...) and non-food uses (building houses or ships ...), with trees totally or partially domesticated (thus modified by the selection operated). And this in forests now natural, uncultivated.
