Chicken Piccata Recipe Chicken Piccata is a classic Italian dish that makes cooking chicken nearly foolproof. Slicing and then flattening the breasts into fast-cooking cutlets (thin slices that are dredged in flour, also called escalopes or scallopini) virtually eliminates the chances of serving undercooked chicken, while also helping ensure you don't overcook it, because once it's browned, it's done. The simple, tangy sauce is pretty heavenly, too! This recipe calls for sweet onions, some of the more common varietes of which include the Vidalia (from Georgia), Imperial (from California), Walla Walla (from Washington) and Maui (from Hawaii).

Curry and beer – such a very British combination eh? Makes me think of bald heads bent over bowls of steaming vindaloo, pints of pee-yellow lager at the ready to quench the ensuing fire before bobbing out of the formica-tabled Indian curry house and stumbling back onto the streets of Bradford or Brick Lane.

Can you smell that picture? But of course there’s more to beer than fizzy lager, as we are discovering now more than ever with the recent revolution of Irish craft beers. And there’s more to Indian food than famously hot vindaloo from southern Goa or roganjosh from Kashmir which straddles India, Pakistan and China and from where much of what defined ‘Indian’ cooking in British culture originates. Last weekend I went to the unlikely location of Ardee, Co Louth to learn more about the kind of cooking you might find on the streets and in the homes of Bangladesh.

Clos Mireille – Domaines Ott at - Good eating and drinking in Provence. Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 Route du Fort de Brégancon La Londe-les-Maures 04 94 01 53 NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY You too might look as cheerful as Jean-François Ott if your trio of family wine estates included Clos Mireille, a glorious place running down to the Mediterranean close to the Fort de Brégançon (where the President of the French Republic has his summer home). Not too many wine producers can claim to be hard at work while strolling to the beach.

With extensive buildings and 40 hectares of vines on a 140-hectare domaine, Clos Mireille has been in the Domaines Ott portfolio through several generations, together with Chateau de la Selle (also in Côtes de Provence) and Château Romassan (in Bandol). The purchase of a 60% share in the company by Roederer Wine Estates in 2004 has brought its classy wines in their traditional, curvy bottles into much wider distribution while also helping to main high standards.

Choosing from a menu is never straightforward where I'm concerned – I'm always worried I'm going to make the wrong choice, and miss out on something I'll never get the chance to try again. But as soon as I sink into the soft flock cushions favoured by British Indian restaurants of the old school, all such worries melt away – I know exactly what I'm going to have. Inevitably it's a spicy lamb curry from the chef's specials, with tarka dal and saag paneer, accompanied by a plain naan, ideally one the size of the napkin. Now, I can make some pretty decent lamb curries, even if I sometimes have difficulty identifying one, and I'm a dab hand at dal, yet the simplest dish – fried spinach and fresh cheese – has proved a remarkably tough nut to crack. Nothing I've tried has come close to matching up to the garlicky, greasy greens served in the humblest of curry houses; nice, sure, but not the kind of dish you'd go back to like a woman obsessed.

We’ve spent the last few weeks exploring and tasting at multiple wineries in La Londe, the nearest wine region to us in the South of France. It’s a sub-appellation within the larger Côtes de Provence region, and while small in terms of overall production, La Londe boasts lots of grand chateaus, delicious wines and gorgeous vineyards. En Route to the Wineries! Here’s a list of our favorite wineries to visit, and also some places we’d avoid: Nearly everyone we talked to about wine tasting raved about this place, so obviously we had to visit and give it a try ourselves.

Thank goodness for those recommendations! This chateau made the best wines we’ve tasted in the area yet, and thanks to the knowledgeable, bilingual staff, it was our favorite tasting so far too!

I do sometimes get asked "If you've found a Higgs boson, can you show me a picture of it? " Unfortunately, the answer is no. But the reason for this provides a resolution to a severe parental dilemma, and explains why I am in fact sometimes the tooth fairy. Bear with me. I can't show you something which is definitely the new boson, but I can show evidence for it, for example in the picture below. It shows the distribution (black circles) of the mass you get when you combine the energy and momenta of pairs of photons (particles of light) in the ATLAS detector. The bump shows that there are more of these photon pairs at masses corresponding to around 125 GeV than would be expected from the trend. This excess implies the existence of a particle at about this mass which decays to pairs of photons. In fact, even with a perfect detector, some of that background would remain.

Now, to the parental dilemma. Do you spoil the fun or do you lie? Here's my way out. Maybe. Happy Christmas. Austria map - Google Maps. Foie gras with poached pear and red onion marmalade recipe.
