Get Saucey

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Dale Phillip

Sauces. We rarely give them a thought. Don't they just kind of show up on your plate at restaurants, or on the top of your stove straight from a package? Well, believe it or not, they are a finely developed creation in the best of kitchens around the world, created lovingly and painstakingly by a "saucier" (French pronunciation) sautÃ�© chef, a position in the classical brigade style kitchen, which means quite simply a "sauce cook." In addition to preparing basic sauces, the saucier also makes stews, stocks and sautÃ�©s food to order And no, in the finest restaurants this guy is not whipping up chicken fried steak or packaged beef gravy behind a closed door. These are highly trained, skilled chefs who work alongside the top chefs in Michelin rated establishments, who know their craft and rarely (if ever) mess up a Bernaise or Bechamel creation.

It's Halal!

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Zainal Nazam Mohd Noor

Paris (France) - August 1978; it was a hot August day and we jumped the turnstiles at the Place D'italie Metro heading towards Montmartre to look for some Arab food. English was not a widely used language then although I believe it was a mandatory subject taught in French schools then; so getting around in Paris knowing very minimal French then was quite tricky. The most common response to our queries was "No Anglais.

Foods of Russia

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Dale Phillip

Let's face it... when great cuisines are mentioned, how often does Russian food get included? Not often, we might surmise. But the Russian Tea Room ini NYC has been a landmark for decades, and if you like simple, basic somewhat heavy food, it may be one of your favorites. Since founded by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet in 1927, the Russian Tea Room has become a mainstay for celebrities and some of the intellectual elite, where actors, writers, politicos and executives plan deals and celebrate their friends' latest performances at nearby Carnegie Hall. Beyond the obvious (vodka, caviar, borscht, blinis, and leg of lamb) Russian food has an interesting history, spanning centuries of poverty, royalty and everything in between. Let's explore some of those foods which most of us will never even sample.

Water is essential for life and we need to consume it in order to stay healthy but when too much is taken it is known to kill.

Foods Boomers Grew Up On (Not Exactly Haute Cuisine)

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Dale Phillip

We've come a long way, Boomers. From our humble beginnings in the 1950's to our celebrated cuisines in the 21st century, no group has experienced a more diverse and culinary progression as much as the early post-war baby boomers. Our parents drank little orange packets of instant Sanka decaf coffee, we guzzled soft drinks and sugary snack foods at the local convenience store and our tastes were pretty basic and simple. After all, what did we know? We ate what was popular and what mom served. Eating out was pretty much relegated to an occasional steak, baked potato and salad at the local restaurant, special events wowed us with baked Alaska and canapes, and overall we just munched on candy bars, bubblegum and anything else we could sneak without arousing our parent's suspicions. Life was simple in every aspect, and we went about our daily routine drinking milk and hoping for Oreo cookies when we got home from school.

Hot Diggity Dog

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Dale Phillip

What's more American than the hot dog? No country eats more or embraces it as their own like the U.S. spanning all age groups,. How we love our hot dogs: boiled, grilled, steamed, wrapped in bacon, smothered in toppings, everyone has a favorite and many cities are known for their rigid standards as to how they are served (can you say Chicago?). Picnics, barbecues, ball games, airports we just have to have them. They're synonymous with American cuisine and show no signs of slipping. So fire up the grill, pop open a can of baked beans and let's get started.

Benefits Of Dry Basil Powder

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Synderela Thomas

Present in every Indian household, it won't be wrong to say that Holy Basil is a miraculous herb. It is a known fact that every plant that has some religious importance associated with it also has great health benefits directly or indirectly. Our ancestors were shrewd in this manner, as they gave religious importance to these herbs so that even if we somehow forget or ignore the health benefits of a plant, we keep growing them out of our respect for these plants.

Soda Jerks: Heroes Of The Past

Published:Thursday 12th of September | by Dale Phillip

Many boomers remember those wonderful soda fountains which populated almost every local drug store of their youth. Where (hopefully) a cute young man (wearing a dumb looking hat) made yummy concoctions and a middle aged woman with a pencil behind her ear asked you "what'll it be?" Sadly, that great part of Americana is all but lost, taking with it thick shakes and malts made with real ice cream, hot fudge sundaes, strawberry ice cream sodas, cherry colas and fizzy chocolate phosphates. They were magical places and could transform a bad day at school or a lonely evening just by climbing onto one of the high stools and twirling around as you watched your order created right in front of you, which was definitely part of the fun.
