Getting The Most Out Of Food

When we think of a piece of broccoli, for example, we tend not to be too concerned with how it’s prepared in regard to its nutrient value. Some people prefer to steam their broccoli, while others like to roast in with a cheese sauce poured over. But the way in which certain foods are prepared and cooked can make a huge difference in how available their nutrients are.

Common Cooking Terms And What They Mean

Most of us have heard of boiling and grating, as well as frying, but the cooking world is vast and complex, and there endless terms that tend to get thrown around when we’re watching our favourite chefs on television or YouTube. A great many of these terms have French and Italian origins that have been adapted for more Western use, so it’s easy to forgive someone that hasn’t heard of many of the terms that are used.

The World’s Favourite Quick Dinner Time Meals

There is nothing better than a hearty, home cooked meal, jam packed full of love at the end of a long day. However, after a tiring day at the office, of chasing after the kids, the last thing many of us feel like doing is whipping up a feast in the kitchen. Thankfully, there are some tried and tested recipes that families around the world have been making for generations, that are guaranteed to go down a treat.

Foods With Surprising Beginnings

The world of food is one that has, for the most part, but compartmentalised into a variety of cuisines that can be found around the world. When we think of a common dish, such as sushi, we tend to think of it as originating in Japan, or the cheeseburger in the United States. But food doesn’t always have such a common origin; sometimes original recipes go through decades or centuries of change and evolution before they make their way onto our plates.
