The most delicious dishes of Sicily

The most delicious dishes of Sicily.

To visit Italy, probably wants any lover of travel and adventure. At least, rest in Italy is very popular. Which is not surprising, in this country you can swim, ride the rides, see many sights, but after all these tiring activities, visit the small cafes and enjoy authentic Italian food. Of course, the most famous Italian dishes are pizza and spaghetti. But every city can boast, and some special culinary delights.

If you visit Sicily, you certainly will not be disappointed by the skill of local chefs. Especially appeal here to fans of fish and seafood. Still, all sides of the island bordered by the Mediterranean sea, which round the year supplies to the table of the inhabitants of Sicily the freshest ingredients.

So, where should we start exploring the local cuisine? Perhaps best to start with the classic spaghetti. Of course, there are dozens and hundreds of species of this dish, but especially well with Sicilian craftsmen turn out such dishes as “alla palermitana”, the “pasta con la mollica” and “con i ricci”. The first of these dishes – spaghetti that are seasoned with special local spices, Continue reading

Chinese kitchen

Here’s the paradox. In Europe and in the States, Chinese food is the cheapest, but we used it many more expensive. Therefore I advise you to start with abroad. For example, in London’s SOHO is a very decent and fully Chinese dinner (although without Beijing duck) cost us just under £ 6 per person. To drink there beer and Chinese anise vodka, and it is paid separately (even the special check for alcohol). But in the States every step of the way Chinese restaurants and buffets (buffets). The restaurant is when you order on the menu and everything that is not eaten, you very decently and politely give them in special containers. Up to green tea. And the buffet – this buffet any number of approaches, but nothing I will carry out. The main advantage of Chinese food is when you come to the restaurant company of four to six people. Every dish is very large, so order for one of each, four different dishes you can try. And without any straining, as the staff calmly brings exactly as many smaller plates as you need for the carve-up of each dish any number of pieces. Now about the actual food. It is characterized by a huge number of sauces and mixture of flavors – sweet pork or pork with fish taste. I don’t quite like the famous Peking duck – fatty and overcooked, but almost everywhere well cooked meat in Sichuan. Continue reading

Exotic spices on the Eastern markets

 

Modern cuisine of most countries of the world today just cannot be imagined without spices. Where, how and when did various spices. Not stop to argue with cooks around the world, but the fact remains – the birthplace of most of them is India. In addition, his “contribution” to the dissemination of the spices brought and Khan El-Khalili is the oldest and most famous market of the East. And when it comes to it, we immediately submitted the most enticing and the most pungent flavours! This Bazaar is famous for in the fourteenth century, and knew about him literally every trader, not only Eastern countries.

Now in order to buy literally any, even the most exotic spice, such, for example, as asafoetida. we just have to go to the supermarket. But did you know that in the middle ages, several centuries ago, the people of the North and the West had to eat solely bland and tasteless meals? And in order to get at least some pleasure from food, they enjoyed not for its taste or quality of food preparation and high volume! On the table served as many dishes as they could fit on it. Imagine what would happen if European countries began to import Oriental spices. In Europe began booming. And all this despite the fact that this precious commodity came not in bags, and just Continue reading
