The Salty Cod Christmas Presents - Mango Chutney | TooManyCookbooks I'm addicted to this stuff. We always have a jar of Sharwood's Mango Chutney in the fridge, ready to be heaped generously on top of a curry. It's equally good with some leftover roast meat or in a cheese sambo!. I made this last year for Christmas and got some very good feedback so... if it ain't broke, don't fix it...I'm making it again this year. The recipe is from Delia Smith's Winter Collection. 2.7kg mangoes 700g soft light brown sugar 1 tsp cumin seeds 2 heaped tsp coriander seeds 12 cardamom pods 1 tsp cayenne pepper 1 tsp turmeric powder 110g grated fresh ginger 1 tsp ground cloves 800ml malt vinegar (I used white wine vinegar which isn't quite as harsh) 8 cloves of garlic, crushed with some salt 2 spanish onions, finely chopped I used roughly 1.5 times the quantities here as I am extraordinarily greedy and wanted some for myself. Pour in the sugar and mix thoroughly, coating all the pieces of mango. Fast forward to the next day and remove the mangoes from the fridge.

How to Make Gnocchi: An Illustrated, Step-by-Step Recipe | Food Nouveau - Delicious Discoveries, Abroad and at Home Having been in Italy for two weeks, it has been a bit difficult to keep up with the competition in Project Food Blog, away from home and without access to a kitchen for half of my trip. In case I would participate in the 4th challenge, I paid attention to the food around me in Rome, and tried to find what I would be able to make in my miniscule (update: and *very* ill-equiped) Trastevere apartment. After seeing it served as a primi piatti in countless restaurants, I decided I would make gnocchi. The great thing about gnocchi is that they’re made with few ingredients: potatoes, flour, eggs, olive oil, salt. My kitchen in Rome (minus the bedside table).

Vegetative Uncertainty » mangolandia Humans! In India when speaking of our dead, the people say “she left the body” rather than “she died”. That is, there is a deep clarity — for me our subconscious patterns of speech reveal deeply the structure of how we think — about what death is, or as it has sometimes occurred to me, “the unreality of death”. Krishna and Jesus are both pretty into this idea – “For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. “He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.” I’ll let you figure out the who’s whom, but the point is that many tribes and cultures have come up with elaborate rituals around the Leaving of the Body. In Mexico, Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated every year, on November 1st and 2nd, to pray for and remember our dead. Now it’s all beginning to come together. You’ve got to do this thing. I think it’s important for those of us still in the body. * filling (salt) * rice * sauce * goodies avocado finely diced onions cilantro

Scott's Pizza Chronicles: Why I Love the International Pizza Expo A typical scene at Pizza Expo. [Photographs: Scott Wiener] The response is common when I tell someone I'm heading to Las Vegas for the International Pizza Expo. "What is the International Pizza Expo???" I'm not surprised this event isn't common knowledge, especially since there's little mention of it in the media (including this very website). I attended my first pizza trade show in September 2006, the last time the National Association of Pizzeria Operators (NAPO) held one in Atlantic City. Being an international event, pizzas like this Japanese one are entered into culinary competition. Before I get to the good stuff, let me clear out some of the negatives that come with Pizza Expo. Once you're inside the convention center, the outside world is inconsequential. As much as I love free pizza, that's far from being the main attraction at Pizza Expo.

Ingredients for American Baking in Paris Although we can’t expect things to be like ‘back home’, many of us do miss certain things that we are used to in American recipes. While French has wonderful ingredients, for bakers, it can be a challenge to adapt to new ingredients or ones that behave differently than what we’re used to. Here’s a list of commonly used baking ingredients and where you can find them, or what you can use in their place. Happy baking!

Peut-on remplacer la farine de blé par du sarrasin ? La farine de sarrasin : une farine de caractère Le sarrasin est réputé pour son goût très prononcé de noisette. La farine qui en est extraite a elle aussi du caractère : son goût est nettement plus amer que celle de la farine de blé… D’où une difficulté certaine à utiliser la farine de sarrasin comme produit de substitution à la farine de blé dans de nombreuses recettes ! En réalité, on utilise plus souvent une autre farine sans gluten au goût plus subtil pour remplacer la farine de blé : la farine de riz ! Utilisation de la farine de sarrasin Si la farine de sarrasin ne peut pas vraiment être utilisée comme un pur produit de substitution à la farine de blé, il est tout de même possible de l’intégrer à vos recettes. Mise en garde : privilégiez la farine de sarrasin de qualité Normalement, la farine de sarrasin ne devrait jamais contenir de gluten.
