Think chorizo is the same thing in Mexico as in Spain? Think again. Nancy Lopez McHugh sets the record straight, and shows us how to make the Mexican version.By Nancy Lopez-McHugh Today I will be sharing one of my favorite Mexican recipes with you, Chorizo. When Europeans hear this word they think of a fermented cured red sausage (Spanish chorizo). But when North Americans hear chorizo they think of a spicy, crumbly meat, red sausage (Mexican chorizo). The key ingredient that gives Mexican chorizo its red color and spiciness is the Ancho chile powder.

感受澳門 品味時刻 - 學煮非洲雞及紅酒燴梨 早前得澳門旅遊局及Metropop邀請出席「感受澳門 品味時刻」烹飪班,來到尖沙咀K11商場的East123廚藝工作室,跟兩位來自澳門旅遊學院大廚David Wong及John Chan,及香港飲食家Jacky Yu學煮澳葡菜及甜品。「感受澳門 品味時刻」由澳門旅遊局舉辦,主要是推動澳門文化,把澳門的世界文化遺產、旅遊設施、地道小食、美酒佳餚等跟旅遊及各地人士分享。這天的烹飪班很開心,可以學煮一道我很喜歡吃的澳葡菜非洲雞。 非洲雞食譜材料︰雞 半隻牛油 30g蒜頭 35g乾蔥 35g紅椒 50g白酒 50ml辣椒粉 35g檸檬皮 1/4個椰絲 65g椰奶 200ml牛奶 200ml 這次我跟素顏天使編了一組,一同來煮非洲雞,先把雞腿及雞胸肉切出來,然後用蒜頭、辣椒粉及白酒來醃製。 煮好醬汁後,便可以煎雞,把牛油煮溶後,就先把雞皮一邊向下放,慢火煎數分鐘後至雞皮呈金黃色便可反轉,再煎至雞肉全熟,最後再倒入醬汁煮一煮便可。 還有Jacky Yu教我們造囍有此梨,紅酒燴梨,造法簡單,冰凍的梨子最適合夏天食用。 材料︰啤梨 6個紅酒 600ml砂糖 60ml水 250ml青檸皮 1個橙皮 半個肉桂 1小片(約3g) 選舉啤梨時最後是挑選比較硬身的一點,這樣煮後梨肉也不會太腍爛。 我很喜歡吃非洲雞,現在學慬了怎樣造,若未能到澳門品嚐之前,也可在家烹調來吃,而且更可自行調配辣度,把醬汁伴飯吃就真的很棒!

(照片以 iPhone 4S 拍攝) 不過我發現這個雞隔天吃更入味更好吃,我第二天就用了雞翼配自己做的炒薯仔粒當配菜做午餐喔~ (雞翼超大一隻!) 最近看肥媽的節目都會看到他的美食家 Jacky Yu,除了擔任比賽的評判,更即席示範了一道甜品。 紅酒燴梨 (半個計,12 人份) 材料: 1) 啤梨 6 個,去皮備用。 2) 紅酒 600ml 3) 砂糖 60ml 4) 水 250ml 5) 青檸皮 1 個 6) 橙皮 半個 7) 肉桂枝 1 條 做法: 1) 除啤梨外,把所有材料倒入高身鍋中煮滾。 2) 加入啤梨,以慢火煮 30-25 分鐘至啤梨軟身。 3) 關火,讓其在鍋中待涼。 4) 啤梨和汁料放膠盒,置雪櫃中泡一天。 5) 上碟時先把啤梨底部切走一點,讓其更容易站立。 6) 用隔簁把紅酒汁過濾一下再淋在啤梨上面。 7) 可加上薄荷葉作裝飾,吃的時候配合雪糕一起吃風味更佳啊~

CD normally presents itself with a number of typical signs and symptoms of malabsorption: diarrhea, muscle wasting, and weight loss. Other gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and flatulence are also common. Curiously, a large group of patients that have been diagnosed with CD through screening for CD-specific antibodies and duodenal biopsy [3, 4] lack these classical symptoms, a condition that is also referred to as “asymptomatic CD” (ACD). ACD is present in a large group of diagnosed celiac patients [15, 16]. The opioid effects of gluten exorphins: asymptomatic celiac disease | Journal of Health, Population and Nutrition | Full Text
