Paprika parsnip fries – A House in the Hills. Since I’m abstaining from fried foods this month I thought I should probably come up with a recipe that would make me say “French fries, who?!” Because living without the decadence of fries is just not ok with me. So, these paprika parsnip fries were born. Baked, not fried, and topped with a preserved lemon cashew cream sauce they’re vegan, healthy and COMPLETELY WONDERFULLY DECADENT!!! Oh, and silly easy. The trifecta of awesome, in my book. French Fries who?

Criterios microbiologicos. Crispy-Outside Creamy-Inside Garlic Herb Potatoes. My new favorite side dish. [OC][OS][670 x 1012] : FoodPorn. Herramientas para inventario. The MADFeed. 3 December 2013 • Today we release Margot Henderson’s presentation from MAD3, in which the chef discusses the importance of simple, instinctive, regional cooking and tackles the question of why there aren’t more female chefs running kitchens around the world.

The speech was adapted from an essay. You can read it below, as well as in the recently published “Guts” mini-magazine that’s tucked inside the latest issue of Lucky Peach. When I was a young chef, I liked nothing better than the creative, steamy, competitive, hard atmosphere of the kitchen. The more shifts, the better; the more there was to do, the better; and I still seemed to have so much energy that I could carry on into the night with my kitchen mates and still be fresh for the next morning’s work. Despite my enthusiasm, for a long time I lacked confidence. As soon as I made that resolution, everything fell into place. I had no idea what I was doing but I knew that I had to put together a team, and that’s exactly what I did.

As omnivores, humans have historically faced the difficult task of identifying and gathering food that satisfies nutritional needs while avoiding foodborne illnesses1. This process has contributed to the current diet of humans, which is influenced by factors ranging from an evolved preference for sugar and fat to palatability, nutritional value, culture, ease of production, and climate1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The relatively small number of recipes in use (∼106, e.g. Compared to the enormous number of potential recipes (>1015, see Supplementary Information Sec S1.2), together with the frequent recurrence of particular combinations in various regional cuisines, indicates that we are exploiting but a tiny fraction of the potential combinations. Here we introduce a network-based approach to explore the impact of flavor compounds on ingredient combinations.

Lemon Juice - Acidic, Alkaline or Both? | Natural Foods Articles at There is often misunderstanding of lemon’s pH outside the body versus inside the body. Let’s get this straight and expound on 10 benefits of regularly taking lemon juice with warm water (note: NOT equal to lemonade!) Outside the body, lemon juice is acidic (pH is below 7). This is a non-issue. Everyone knows this. It’s a citrus fruit. Inside the body however, when lemon juice has been fully metabolized and its minerals are dissociated in the bloodstream, its effect is alkalizing and therefore raises the pH of body tissue (pH above 7 is alkaline).

Why is it important for body tissue to be alkaline rather than acidic? Similar to the food we eat, human tissue – muscles, organs, fascia, cells and blood simply break down faster in acidic conditions. How does the body become acidic? You may have heard that the acidity of lemon juice reduces the healthy enamel on teeth. You may have also heard that lemon juice causes cavities. Helps to: Click Why is Lemon Water Alkaline? "Tenemos dos cerebros: el de la cabeza y el del estómago"

The Greedy Gardener. Lemon verbena (aloysia citrodora) has a refreshing citrus scent that has a variety of culinary uses both sweet and savoury. Its flavour is very strong and cuts through sharply, so use it with care. I’ve used it to flavour sorbets and syrups and it works very well with blackcurrants. It also makes a really nice tea that has a clean fresh taste, good after a heavy meal or to help settle an upset stomach. You can buy it dried and it’s popular in France and Morocco where it’s known as vervaine but I love it fresh from the plant.

It’s frost tender so grow it in a pot and bring it indoors over the winter. Este hombre no piensa volver a comer en su vida | VICE España. ¿Sabéis qué es una irreversible pérdida de tiempo, dinero y esfuerzo? Comer por placer. ¿No preferirías ingerir sustancias insípidas el resto de tu vida y ahorrarte pasar por toda la historia de comerte un sandwich prefabricado? ¿O de jalarte una pizza de resaca? Rob Rhinehart, un programador de Atlanta y, probablemente, un tío muy ocupado, piensa así. Rob se sentía estafado por el tiempo excesivo que tardaba en hacerse un huevo frito por la mañana y decidió que tenía que hacer algo. Al principio, no tenía muy claro si se estaba tirando el moco, ya que "soylent" es el nombre de una oblea hecha de carne humana que se daba de comer a las masas en la película de ciencia ficción Soylent Green del año 1973.

Rituals Make the World Taste Better. Bloc de recetas: Pan Egipcio en tiestos.

Este pan me llamó la atención cuando lo vi en el libro 100 Great Breads de Paul Hollywood, parece que es el primer pan del que hay evidencias históricas. El pan, la cebolla y la cerveza eran los alimentos básicos de los Egipcios. Este pan, con cebolla y hierbas aromáticas, lo horneaban dentro de recipientes de barro en forma de conos, incluso se puede ver en varios jeroglíficos... os dejo esta interesante publicación donde hablan de todo esto. Lo más interesante es comprobar como se cocina una masa en barro, quedó realmente esponjoso, desde luego muy distinto que cuando horneamos de manera tradicional. Muy sabroso gracias a la cebolla frita que le da un toque salado estupendo para acompañar sopas y cremas, tuesta y congela muy bien y hace unos bocadillos calientes de queso increíbles. La primera vez lo hice sólo con masa madre y hoy con levadura y una masa vieja de pizza que dejé fermentar toda la noche, creo que el resultado es el mismo y de esta manera resulta mucho más rápido.

Horneado. Massive Review Reveals Consensus on GMO Safety. "The scientific research conducted so far has not detected any significant hazards directly connected with the use of genetically engineered crops. " That's the conclusion from a team of Italian scientists, who just completed a thorough systematic review of the scientific research conducted on genetically modified (GM) crops in the past decade.

Their work is published in the journal Critical Review of Biotechnology. Led by Alessandro Nicolia, an applied biologist at the University of Perugia in Italy, the team collected and evaluated 1,783 research papers, reviews, relevant opinions, and reports published between 2002 and 2012, a comprehensive process that took 12 months to complete. The records covered all aspects of GM crop safety, from how the crops interact with the environment, to how they could potentially affect the humans and animals who consume them.

Overall, the scientific literature was heavily in favor of GM agriculture. The report delved into specifics. Scientist Uses Brainwaves to Test Ideal Prices for Products.

Kai-Markus Müller is sitting in his office in a nondescript building, thinking about the coffee-roasting company Starbucks. "Everyone thinks that they've truly figured out how to sell a relatively inexpensive product for a lot of money," he says. "But the odd thing is that even this company doesn't understand it. " Müller, a neurobiologist, isn't criticizing working conditions at the multinational purveyor of hot beverages.

Instead, what he means is that the Seattle-based company gives away millions of dollars a year out of pure ignorance. It's an almost obscene observation.
