    An Undersung Trailblazer of Indian Cooking

    At the age of five, Julie Sahni began attending a school run by Arya Samaj, a Hindu reform movement, in the North Indian city of Kanpur. Classes there trained her to be a perfect housewife. Born in 1945 as Deepalakshmi Ranganathan Iyer, she learned how to knit, how to take care of a sick man, how to make dosas. As she grew older, she became highly proficient at cooking. Her mother, Padma, warned her not to cook too much at home, lest the family cook run away. During the summers, though, Julie’s father, Venkataraman, gave the servants a vacation. When   Read More

    How a Librarian and a Food Historian Rediscovered the Recipes of Moorish Spain

    “Take large fine-tasting carrots, lightly scrape their skins, cut them in half lengthwise, and then split each half into two pieces.” For centuries, that’s as far as any cook could get when preparing “A dish [of carrots in sauce]” from Ibn Razīn al-Tujībī’s Fiḍālat al-Khiwān fī Ṭayyibāt al-Ṭaʿām wa-l-Alwān (Best of Delectable Foods and Dishes from al-Andalus and al-Maghrib), a cookbook composed in Tunis around 1260. The rest of the recipe (more on that later), together with dozens of others, disappeared sometime after the late 1600s. Most of the cookbook’s 475 recipes survived in copies.

    Man Creates Coffee-like Beverage Using Fries

    Some food experiments should never be done because they are simply unacceptable and this one from Canada is a clear example of the same. So, while during the pandemic and multiple lockdowns, many people resorted to trying their hands at cooking, and while some of us aced that, others just came up with the most bizarre things that we did not need.  Instagram user @whathowtry posted a video where he blended McDonald’s fries into a fine powder which he further takes to a coffee machine and then pours out a light yellow drink. Grossed out, yet? Instagram “What should we   Read More

    Smith: Black walnuts | Food and Cooking

    Jenna Smith When I was growing up, we had an old black walnut tree next to our driveway that would drop walnuts causing me to trip over them while chasing my brother. I loathed this tree, especially when it was my turn to mow the grass, as I had to first rake the walnuts, wasting more of my precious time. Little did I know that we could have used these annoying nuts for delicious food. However, they’re a hard nut to crack. If you’re determined enough to remove the husk (hop in your vehicle and drive over them a few   Read More

    Are vegan meat alternatives putting our health on the line?

    Veganism is typically equated with healthy eating, but today’s factory-produced fake bacon, sausages and burgers could be tarnishing the halo of a plant-based diet. New Scientist investigates Health 27 October 2021 By Helen Thomson Kyle Bean DONALD Watson was born in Yorkshire and spent much of his youth on his uncle’s farm. But rather than making him feel at ease with breeding animals for food, the realisation that these “friendly creatures” went for slaughter horrified him. He became a vegetarian in 1924, aged 14.
