    I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Sant Stomak Day! The day we honor this somewhat obscure saint happens to coincide with World Food Day. Sant Stomak was created by Miralda, a Barcelona-based artist who has been doing food-focused work for some 50 years. Here's a nice video of a Sant Stomak celebration at La Boqueria a few years ago. Miralda gave me the saint's card last year and it immediately became one of my favorite possessions.

    Patron saint of metabolic equilibrium,
    Of agro-biodiversity,
    Master of conviviality.

    Be our guide in the world of food and its nutrients,
    Make us meditate on the contradictions
    Surrounding food in today's society,
    Agro-Culture devoured by consumerism,
    Artificial nature and the diesel of deforestation.

    Protect us from
    Food insecurity,
    Fast food and obesity.

    Teach us to respect the flavor of memory,
    Through knowledge and taste.

    Be our pharmafood.
