Eating: A Social Event

Guest Blogger: Chris Manganaro Eating is a social event. Some people believe that food even tastes better when eaten in good company. Eating is an experience best shared in one way or another. If you cannot express your enjoyment to others, the experience of food decreases quite a bit. Sharing a compliment with the chef or telling your companion to have a bite add just the right flavor to any meal. If you made it yourself then seeing others enjoy it is what ends up mattering to you all the more than your own enjoyment. Food helps us to understand one another. In Alice, Let's Eat: Further Adventures of a Happy Eater by Calvin Trillin, we learn about Alice and Calvin as a couple through their experiences with food. Calvin is a food enthusiast, a foodie, a gourmand. Whatever you want to call him, his love of food is more than obvious and sometimes leans towards ridiculous. Alice is also a lover of food, but not exactly in the same vein as Calvin. Throughout the book one can see the differences between the two yet food still brings them together quite often. The book is simply set up in chapters which often revolve around one topic. Each chapter's topic is in some way related to food, of course. Calvin Trillin would not have it any other way. What makes this interesting is that the way each chapter addresses food is not always direct. Each exploit is rather silly and rarely serious. This makes the book move by at a leisurely pace. It is an easy read that is likely to make you chuckle along with your rumbling stomach. Due to Calvin's eccentricities, you may just be laughing at times because his love of food likely outdoes yours. He will eat most anything.

Wine Soup? Who Knew

Guest Blogger: Renata Toth What characterizes this cold season? Wild animals, mushrooms, orange, grapes and wine are typical to the fall and winter months. The soup I find interesting is a nice warm wine soup in which the flavours of fall and winter are combined with the bitter sweetness of dry white wine. To make this soup for 4, you'll need: • 1 cup dry white wine • 2/3 cup water • 1 egg yolk • 4 egg whites • a few cloves • orange skin • lemon skin • approx 3 tsps sugar • approx 2 tsps of flour First, pour the wine into a pot and start boiling it. Add a few stripes or orange skin and lemon skin and the cloves (5-6 for this amount), and bring it to boil. Meanwhile, beat the egg whites until you obtain a thick and hard cream. Mix the egg yolk with the sugar with a little water, and the rest of the water with the flour. When the wine is boiling, take it off the fire, and add the egg yolk-sugar mix while mixing continuously, and the water-flour mix, while still mixing it continuously in order to avoid the creation of lumps. Bring it to boil once more. When boiling, add the egg whites and mix with a hand whisk until you obtain a smooth and creamy texture. Serve hot in pretty bowls. This soup is fast and delicious, ready in approximately 30 minutes, so it is best to prepare it freshly before the dinner so that it remains hot. Although it keeps its alcoholic and' winey' taste, it practically won't contain any alcohol after boiling, so it is a safe dish for those who plan to drive after dinner. Enjoy!

Easy Lemon Jam

Guest Blogger: Renata Toth If you have read my previous post on the chocolate-lemon jam muffin, this one will come in handy, as for the jam itself. Its wonderfully lemony flavour is not only for cakes, though. You can use it as a jam on a slice of buttered bread, on biscuits, on in a pancake as filling. This is a totally home-made receipe as done by my mother and nowadays by myself as well. It does not need a lot of thinking or preparation, and it is a really low-budget treat to prepare. The ingredients for a dose are: • 1 kg white squash (not to be mistaken with the sport), grated • 3 bigger whole lemons, grated (all included) • Powdered sugar You just take the grated squash and cook it on a medium-high fire in its own juice until tender and the sauce evaporates a little. Then, add the grated lemons and cook together. When ready, distribute it into smaller or bigger bottles. You may want to wash the bottles with cold water before you do it, and only add a small amount of the hot jam, otherwise the bottle may crack or even break because of the sudden temperature increase. When the bottles are filled, put a good amount of powdered sugar ont he top to preserve the jam, put the top on tightly, and place them in a basket upside down. Cover them until they cool to avoid a quick cooling that wouldn’t do good to the jam itself. Without opening the bottle, you can keep the jam for years; if the bottle is open, then you need to keep it in the fridge and finish it relatively soon! A great breakfast idea would be to eat some jam with a home-made croissant and either a big mug of coffee or a nice fresh orange juice! Enjoy!

Dreaming Up Deliciously Dimunitive Dessserts

Guest Blogger: Chris Manganaro We often find ourselves fixated with the size of many things in our lives. From our cars and homes to who got the larger piece of cake, everyone always wants to have the bigger piece of the pie in life. What we do not often consider is the idea that good things come in small packages. Due to the fact that people often dismiss this perspective, we sometimes miss out on what really matters. It all comes down to greed. This applies just as easily to dessert, which is something that some people cannot get enough of. They want to have their cake and eat it too. Well, with a recipe like Piecaken from Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth's book, Petite Treats, you can do just that. Greenseth and Beaver both show an understanding of the might behind miniature things. Their cookbook, as well as the business which sparked it, were formed on the basis of this thought. The desserts in this book may be small, but they pack a powerful punch both in flavor and presentation. By presenting so much to the senses in such a compact way, the book and desserts speak volumes in their own tiny voice. The book itself is small in comparison to other cookbooks, but not so small as to be impractical. The words are still easy to read and the pictures included are good quality. Another bright side to its smaller size is the fact that there is less white space on the pages, making the book feel full. The use of pictures which relate to the recipe at hand also help to fill the white void without overwhelming the reader. This is all done to compliment the size and enhance the readers experience. Speaking of enhancing the experience, there are side bars on most of the recipes which are labeled as "sweet tips" and are there to assist the readers baking needs. In some cases these tips are rather necessary while other times they are partially silly, pushing the reader not to waste anything. Due to the brevity and wit of the boxed words, they come off merely as gentle prodding and clarification. They are but another part of the books charm. One should have no trouble navigating their way through the recipes in this cookbook. It is split into simply defined sections with an easy to navigate table of contents. The little blurb between sections shows off the writing style and mood of the authors quite well. This is a book written for everyone from hobby bakers to vegans, who will find many recipes that can be altered for them. You do not need to be a seasoned veteran of the kitchen to use this book. Everything is laid out concisely, but also with enough detail that anyone should be able to prepare these desserts. The only downside would be the fact that the book does not have an equipment guide, but this is easily remedied as long as you read through a recipe first as the necessary equipment is mentioned within them. Not everyone's kitchen contains mini scone and whoopie pie pans after all. In the end,there are no small cooks, just petite treats!

Moroccan Tajines

Guest Blogger: Renata Toth To continue with another typical Moroccan dish, I’d suggest choosing a delicious tajine. Tajines are those pyramid-shaped cooking pots Moroccans use for cooking. The specialty of this is that all the ingredients are added one another, allowing for the different cooking times, and then basically cooked together, which gives an extraordinary mixture of all the flavours, the outcome of which will be a full and tasteful meal. In case you do not have this tajine, you can just as well cook it in a pot. A meat and fruit tajine would just do nicely after this thick soup. You’ll need the following: 1 middle-sized onion approx 4 cl oil 1 kg meat, mostly beef is used 2 cinnamon sticks, or ground cinnamon ½ tsp ginger salt and pepper 1 litre of water a little bit of powdered cinnamon, if you have been using sticks above 4 sp honey 200 gr dried peaches 250 gr pineapple, cut in small dices 250 gr pears cut in small dices 100 gr butter 5 sp sugar 2 bananas 100 gr breadcrumbs First, in a pot, put together the onion cut into thin pieces, the oil, meat, 1 cinnamon stick (or a little powdered cinnamon), salt and pepper, ginger and the powdered cinnamon (in case you used sticks above). Mix it well until the meat is browned, then add water, cover and cook for 35 minutes approximately. Afterwards, add the honey and let it cook for a little while, but keep some sauce. While the meat is cooking, wash and peel the peaches, and cook for 10 minutes. Then, drain them and mix in the mixer. Put the pineapple cubes and pear pieces in a pan with a small amount of butter, add the sugar and the other cinnamon stick, and let it cook until the juice evaporates completely and the fruits are slightly caramelised. Peel the bananas, cut them in circles. Melt butter in a pan. Cover every pieces of banana with breadcrumbs and fry them on both sides in the butter. Serve the meat on a plate and surround it with the fruits and the peach sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. To accompany this dish, prepare a nice fruit juice! For example, take half a kilo of strawberries, sugar according to your taste, ice cubes and half a litre of orange juice, mix them together in the blender and serve in long glasses! To be stylish, you can dip the glasses into sugar as well and maybe add a little umbrella as decoration!

A Taste of Harira..

By Guest Blogger: Renata Toth Ramadan night dishes are usually heavier than an everyday lunch, given that the whole day’s calorie consumption has to be covered with one meal. Yet, this one meal includes several dishes from the dense soup to the nuts, sweets and fruits coming for dessert. Probably the Moroccan harira and couscous are the most widely known dishes preferred during Ramadan, given their richness that fills the stomach easily. Harira itself is most often associated with Ramadan. To make this soup, you will need the following ingredients: 100 gr chickpeas 100 gr lentils 200 gr soft meat cut in small pieces 100 gr onion cut in small pieces 4 sp oil 100 gr chopped celery 500 gr chopped tomatoes salt black pepper 1 tsp powdered ginger a little bit of saffron 1 cinnamon stick or a small amount of ground cinnamon 2 litres of water 1,5 sp tomato puree around 100 gr ground coriander and parsley First you’ll have to soften the lentils and the chickpeas in water for a whole night -so begin the night before. In a pot, put together the chickpeas, lentil, the oil,the onion and the celery, and cook on medium fire until the meat gets a nice golden color. Then, add the chopped tomatoes and the salt, pepper, ginger, saffron and the cinnamon. Pour water over the mix and boil until the meat and the chickpeas are well cooked. Using a pressure-cooker would significantly diminish the cooking time of this dish. Then when the meat is ready, take out he cinnamon stick if you used one. Add the tomato puree, coriander and parsley, and cook on medium fire for another 15 minutes. Serve hot.. for more recipes and foodie info visit http://www.marialiberati.com and get your

An Italian Dog

Guest Editor: Chris Manganaro While not everyone has a pet, most people would agree that they can do a lot for a person's mental well-being. It does not necessarily matter what kind of animal it is, pet owners always have stories to tell. Some are inspirational, others astounding stories of rescue and then there are those that are just plain funny. Whether or not a person is saved, a pet still has a permanent affect on their lives. In Justine van der Leun's memoir Marcus of Umbria: What an Italian Dog Taught an American Girl about Love, we are given the story of Justine's life with and without the titular dog. It is important to note for those interested in the book that the dog, while important to the story, is not the main focus. In fact, it may disappoint some readers to find Marcus absent from so many of the book's pages. In many ways, it is disappointing because Justine does such a wonderful job of describing the way her dog moves and acts. Whether describing the way Marcus walks or grins a doggy smile, the words used are charming and well thought out. This is not to say the rest of the book's writing is lacking, but it does have a bit less sparkle than when Marcus is involved. This missing bright side is mostly due to the fact that the author can be quite negative at times. During the point in her life that the novel covers, she is a conflicted woman who is not sure what it is that she wants in life. She presents herself in an unflattering way, wholly realizing that she may not be likable to all readers. She does many things that might make you cringe or frown in disapproval. The saving grace is that she at least admits to making irrational decisions and being selfish and naive without defending herself. This of course means that she also has a negative outlook on other parts of life which effects the people and places around her. This is not quite your usual type of travelogue with the world being all rainbows and sunshine, but rather there is quite a bit of mud to wade through. This may be a bit much for some readers. What keeps the book from being too heavy is Justine's sense of humor. It may not hit everyone's funny bone, but some of the stories she relates are very funny. One point in which she talks about the way sheep act is chuckle worthy. It is to her credit that Justine is able to view her situation in a comical way rather than just a morose one. The people that Justine meets, including her boyfriend Emanuele, are described in the same way as herself. They are shown to have flaws because that makes them all the more believable. Characters like Fabio really help to paint a picture of humanity. Overall, the book is at its best when Marcus is involved in some way, but it is not at a complete loss when there is no dog to be seen. The title is a tad misleading, but also entirely truthful. Without Marcus, the book would be lacking the lesson that makes it complete. It is a worthwhile read for those looking for something a little different than the expected.

Culture and Exchanging Vows

Guest Blogger: Chris Manganaro When people get married, their beliefs and cultures can sometimes clash. Along with compromises made over dinner and smaller life changes, there are bigger things that must be worked out. These things tend to do with religion and such and are only made more complicated when children are involved. It is but one obstacle to making a marriage work. It all starts when we meet someone and try to establish what they want in life. It begins right away on the first date. The only problem is making sure to keep things in mind. In Harlot’s Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss, and Greece by Patricia Volonakis Davis, we are introduced to Patricia and her own failed marriage. In it we are exposed to just how things like differing cultures can affect relationships and marriage. In the beginning of the book, right from childhood, Davis experiences how differing cultures lead to alienation and beliefs which do not coincide with the norm. She develops relationships more easily with those she can identify with due to the fact that she is Italian-American. This stays with her for a large part of her life and is also the reason why she ends up with Gregori, her first husband, because he is Greek and lives in America. Through her description of her childhood, Davis is able to show the differences in her life from others. We see the way her family works as well as her beliefs. One of the beliefs mentioned many times throughout the memoir is the idea of “the evil eye.” There is a moment in the book where the rules of “the evil eye” is even broken down. It is fascinating just how much there is to this belief and how strongly Davis is affected by it. Family is a big part of how culture affects marriage. Many times Davis struggles with her family and that of Gregori’s. Whether it is because of religion such as when her son is born or death rituals like when Gregori’s father passes, we see the many differences expressed and even questioned. By the end of the memoir, we end up questioning many of these things along with Davis. These traditions are shown to be revered, but also not always practical. Davis specifically focuses on their effects on her relationships, for better or worse.
