Artisan Bread (in Five Minutes) So this recipe has been floating around for a long time, gracing the blogs and the tables of many a foodie. Personally, I was a bit skeptical. I mean, what is the point of making bread if you aren’t going to knead it, fuss over it, watch it rise, punch it around… Making homemade bread is about technique, timing, and experience. Naturally, it comes with some bragging rights. To make the dough, you mix everything in a bowl. The longer the bread stays in your fridge (up to about two weeks), the more flavourful it becomes and the larger the air holes will be. The “five minutes a day” thing really only refers to the active time once the dough is prepared (i.e. cutting off a chunk, flouring it, and slashing it). Artisan Bread Adapted from ”Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day,” by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François 1. 2. 3. 4.

French Garlic Soup Home >> Recipes Simple and healthy garlic soup from the Provence. I found this healthy French garlic soup in the Larousse de la cuisine des familles, presented as a family recipe from a Provence mama. Start with 4 garlic heads - 1 per guest as a light main course. Pour a large glass olive oil inside an ovenproof dish and place each half garlic head flat in the oil. Roast the oven for about an hour or until the garlic is soft throughout and nicely browned. ... and free the remaining half-cloves. The bottom halved will require some help with a pointed half to free the half garlic cloves. Place all the garlic cloves in large pot.

Love chocolate? Don't thank your tastebuds First aired on Think About It (1/7/2013) The next time you take a bite of something delicious, pause. Close your eyes. That's right, your brain.Because when it comes to the flavour of food, it's not your tastebuds doing the work. Gordon Shepherd is a neuroscientist and the author of Neurogastronomy: How the Brain Creates Flavor and Why It Matters. He was right: smell is a major contributor to determining how a food tastes. Smell is often considered a "second-rate" human sense, far inferior to the sense of smell in other species, such as dogs. The fact that we take this smell and associate it with taste is simple: our brain tricks us. Related links:
