Matteo Girard Maxon owns Ancient Organics, a local food business that specializes in making ghee, a saturated fat heralded for its culinary, health, and healing properties in Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional, holistic practice. Ghee is what you make when you take butter, boil away the moisture, and separate the milk solids. Revered in Indian cooking it is considered a richer, nuttier tasting version of clarified butter.
In the state Department of Education’s annual reporting of test results, Berkeley schools showed steady improvement. In all but one Berkeley school that had results, 2010 scores were up on 2009 scores. Not enough students at Berkeley High took the STAR exams last year for the school to receive an Academic Performance Index from the state.
