Finding That Award Winning Chili Recipe

Diposting oleh Indonesian food on Senin, Juni 16, 2008

If you love chili as half as much as I do, you have probably wondered what goes into an award winning chili recipe. Since then International Chili Society is the one that decides the highest award, I figured they would be the best criteria to examine:

1) Consistency: The chili should be a smooth combination of meat (or meats) and gravy. It certainly should not be lumpy or have big chunks of vegetables or meat. Smooth is the key here.

2) Aroma: Right off the bat, the chili should smell appealing. Of course some smell stronger then others, which is okay as long as the smell itself is something that would invite one to come over and taste it. Now don't get me wrong, I personally have eaten chili that smelled bad and was delicious, I'm just sharing with you what the judges look at.

3) Red Color: Yep, that's right. The "official" judges look for chili to have a red color. No gray chili here folks!

4) Taste: In my opinion the most important aspect of chili Judges compare the taste against the four typical taste sensations which include sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.

5) Aftertaste: Does the chili leave a pleasant taste in the mouth, or a potential "kick" that has smoke coming out your ears? This is also an important aspect of judging chili

So remember to keep these basic principles in mind the next time you sit down to work on your next bowl of award winning chili One final suggestion, make sure you document EVERYTHING you do. I can't tell you how often I've added a pinch of something and enhanced flavor, only to forget exactly what I did.

Have fun!

Cookware Cooking Utensils That Do Double the Work

Diposting oleh Indonesian food

There are many different types of cookware cooking utensils on the market. There are so many cooking utensils to choose from that it can cause many a dispute between couples as far as which one they prefer.

There is a feeling that cooking utensils for the kitchen should match the pans needs, plastic for nonstick and metal for others. Well some of that is changing because there are some manufacturers of non stick cookware claiming that you can cook with them using metal utensils. If you do have cookware that can stand up to metal utensils then I would try to find cookware tools that can do double duty. So what do I mean when I say double duty?

Most people have kitchen utensils used solely for cooking in the kitchen and they have another set cooking tools made specifically for outdoor grilling. Well, I like to try and find cookware cooking utensils that can be used and work well whether your cooking on the grill outside or in the kitchen. Plastic type utensils are not strong enough and will not withstand the high temperatures that outdoor grills can produce.

So what would I look for in a new pair of cooking tongs or spatulas for example? Try finding one that has a longer handle than a standard kitchen utensil does and is made of a good quality metal like stainless steel. The utensil has to be strong enough to be able to use it for outdoor grilling but not so awkward or bulky that it can't be used in the kitchen. You might pay a little more money for this type of cookware but you have eliminated the need for different types of grilling tools.

You may not completely eliminate the need for other tools like plastic or wooden utensils in your kitchen but when you're looking at kitchen cooking utensils like tongs, spatulas or even a meat thermometer try to find one that is robust enough to perform double duty for the kitchen and when cooking outdoors.

Ingredients :

2 cup sweet (glutinous) rice
2 cup coconut milk
1 x salam leaf
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup boneless raw chicken in small pieces
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tsp coriander
2 x garlic cloves sliced
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp peanut or corn oil
1 tsp salt
1 piece jeruk purut
(or a 1" square of lemon peel
1 x salam leaf
1 tsp coriander
2 x garlic cloves sliced
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp peanut or corn oil
3/4 cup ground beef
1 piece jeruk purut
(or a 1" square of lemon peel
1 x salam leaf
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 cup cooked sweet (glutinous) rice
2 cup beef or chicken filling
2 x banana leaf squares - (14" by 14")

Method :

* Wash the rice in cold water several times, and drain. Bring the coconut milk, rice, salam and salt to a boil, and remove the saucepan from the heat. Let it stand, covered, for thirty minutes.
* Remove the rice, place it on a piece banana leaf and steam in a Chinese-style steamer over hot water for thirty minutes. Allow the rice to cool.
* Ckicken Filling: Combine the chicken and coconut milk, and blend into a coarse, grainy mixture. Grind together the coriander, garlic and sugar, and fry in the oil for one minute. Then add the chicken, salt, jeruk purut and salam. Fry for about five minutes, or until the chicken is light brown and dry. Discard the jeruk purut and salam.
* Beef Filling: Grind together in a mortar the coriander, garlic and sugar, and fry for one minute in the oil. Add the beef, jeruk purut, salam, salt and coconut milk. Cook over medium heat for about five minutes, or until the beef is lightly browned. Discard the jeruk purut, salam and any liquid that may have accumulated.
* The Rice Rolls: Place half the rice in the center of a banana leaf, and flatten it out with your fingers into a 4- by 6-inch rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. The rice is sticky, and the process will be easier if you cover your fingers with oil. Spread half the beef or chicken filling along the center of the rice rectangle from end to end. Then fold both sides of the foil toward each other, lengthwise pressing firmly into a roll about 2 inches in diameter. Seal the foil ends to make a firmly packed roll. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make a second roll.
* The rice rolls can be served immediately or refrigerated for up to two days before serving. Remove the rolls from the leaf, and slice into 1-inch-thick pieces like a jelly roll. This dish should be eaten at room temperature.
* This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings, with other dishes.

Beef on a Stick with Peanut Sauce

Diposting oleh Indonesian food on Rabu, Juni 11, 2008

Ingredients :
1 x 2-lb round steak, fat
MARINADE trimmed
2 x Cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp Ground coriander
3 tbl Finely diced yellow onion
1 tbl Brown sugar
1 tsp Fresh lemon juice
2 tbl Light soy sauce
3 tbl Dry sherry
1 cup Dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup Light soy sauce
1 dsh Tabasco, or to taste
2 tbl Light brown sugar
1 tbl Fresh lemon juice
1/2 x Yellow onion, peeled, diced, and pan fried until brown

Method :

* What is a recipe from Indonesia doing in an American cookbook? Because peanuts came from the Americas to Indonesia, that's why. And besides, I love this recipe. Great for the barbecue!
* Cut the meat into thin strips, being careful to remove the fat. Mix the marinade and soak the meat strips for at least 1/2 hour. Put the meat on bamboo skewers in an S pattern.
* Prepare the sauce by grinding the peanuts in a food blender or medium-sized food processor. Place in a bowl and add all other ingredients for the sauce.
* Broil the sticks of meat over charcoal or under the broiler. Cook just until barely browned, about 4 minutes on each side. You want the meat to be fairly rare and tender.
* Spoon the sauce over the meat when you serve.
* I like a sliced cucumber salad with a Vinaigrette Dressing You need add only plain Steamed Rice and the menu is complete (see recipes).
* NOTE: This sauce is great on other meat dishes as well. And I love it on fish.

6/94 " the classical Javanese sauce, Bali, is used to flavor many main ingredients... This sauce is probably as old as Javanese culture itself.*
* In fact the sauce is produced by simple flavorings, such as ripe chilies, and tomato which give the sauce its blazing red colour, then spiced with scented lemon grass and ginger; a small amount of coconut cream & sugar is added to give a delicate flavour to the dish." H. Zucchi, 1989
*(As chilies all originate from New World plants, this is the statement of someone simply proud of her heritage and not a scholar of foods. Javanese culture goes far back beyond the trading days of the 16&1700's)

• Drain. Cut cucumber in
*small* cubes. Peel scallions and garlic. Put in kitchen machine; cut to paste. Mix with sambal, kunjit and ginger. Heat oil in a frying pan. Fry the herb-mixture for 2 minutes. Add vinegar and sugar; stir to dissolve sugar. Add all vegetables (also the ones not cooked yet); add a
• *little* water if there is too little liquid. Boil softly for 2 minutes. Put in a bowl and let cool. You can also preserve it by putting the hot veggies in sterilized screw-lid jars (metal lids with a 'dome' in the middle are quite handy, I always save jam-jars when they're empty); add liquid as well. Screw the lids on. Place jars upside down until cooled completely (the 'dome' in the lid will be down, this is to check if the jar closed well). Can be kept for at least a year (store in dark place to avoid having the color goes away).
• Nice as a present! Kunjit or kurkuma is a herb. If I look on the jar, it says 'powdered yellow-root'. It is used to color this dish, and other dishes as well.
• In that way it is much like saffron, although kunjit tastes a little bitter.
• Sambal ulek [INDONESIA]: Used as an accompaniment and in cooking. Made by crushing fresh red chilis with a little salt. Remove the seeds from the chilis, chop finely, then crush with salt using a pestle and mortar. Three chilis will make about 1 tablespoon sambal ulek. Also available ready-prepared in small jars from Oriental stores and some delicatessens.
• This is a refreshing side dish made of crisp, sweet-and-sour vegetables. Goes really well with Nasi Goreng. The dish can be kept in the fridge for a few days.

Indonesian Salad Recipe - Gado Gado Salad

Diposting oleh Indonesian food


* Salad:
* 3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
* 3/4 cup cabbage, shredded
* 3/4 cup green beans, sliced
* 3/4 cup carrots, sliced
* 3/4 cup cauliflower, chopped
* 1/2 cup mung bean sprouts
* 1/3 cup snow peas
* 1/2 cucumber, sliced
* 2 red potatoes, cut into wedges
* Peanut Dressing:
* 3/4 to 1 cup coconut milk (depending on whether you want a thicker or thinner sauce)
* 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
* 1 teaspoon red curry paste or chile paste (or Tabasco sauce)
* 1 tablespoon brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon lime juice
* 2 teaspoons fish sauce (or substitute 1 tablespoon soy sauce)

Wash all the vegetables. Ideally, with the exception of the eggs and cucumber, all of the salad ingredients should be blanched or boiled in a large pot of boiling water. However, if you are pressed for time you can serve them raw with the exception of the potato, which has to be boiled. To blanch: plunge the vegetable briefly in the boiling water, then plunge into cold water. This leaves the vegetables nicely crisp and neither too firm or limp. Drain all the vegetables.

Arrange the vegetables on a serving platter, starting on the outside of the platter and work inwards, arranging the vegetables in a colorful pattern. Top with the chopped eggs.

To make the dressing: In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil. Stir in the remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes, until the peanut butter has melted and the mixture is thickened.

Indonesian Rendang Curry

Diposting oleh Indonesian food

From Darlene Schmidt,
Your Guide to Thai Food.

Indonesian cuisine has always been influential in Thai cooking. One of the more popular Indonesians dishes in Thailand and throughout Asia is Rendang Chicken or Beef Curry. Rendang is considered a "dry" curry, which means the sauce is simmered down to a minimum. Because it is so distilled, the sauce sticks to the meat, making this dish one of the most flavorful I have ever tried. And its wide variety of spices make it extremely healthy. If you like curry, you'll love Rendang - guarenteed!

* 1 whole chicken, cut into small to medium-size pieces (OR the equivalent of beef)
* 1/2 can good-quality coconut milk
* 2 Tbsp. healthy oil, like organic canola
* 1 onion, peeled and quartered
* 4 cloves garlic
* 1 thumb-size piece galangal (or ginger)
* 1-3 red chillies, depending on how hot you like your curry (de-seeded if less heat is desired) OR substitute chili sauce
* 3/4 Tbsp. tamarind paste
* 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
* 2 tsp. dark soy sauce
* 4 Tbsp. fish sauce
* 1/2 tsp. turmeric
* 1 heaping Tbsp. ground coriander seeds
* 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
* 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
* 1/4 tsp. cloves
* 1 tsp. shrimp paste (available by the jar at Asian food stores) OR substitute 1 Tbsp. more fish sauce
* 2 whole star anise (use the Asian one, available at Asian food stores)
* GARNISH (optional):
* fresh coriander leaves
* dry shredded coconut


1. Place all sauce ingredients - except whole star anise - in a food processor. Process well to form a thick curry paste or sauce. If you don't have a food processor, simply chop onion and herbs finely and combine with the coconut milk, spices, and other ingredients.# These herbs and spices can also be ground together with a pestle & mortar.
# Do a taste test for salt and spice, adding more fish sauce if not salty enough. If not spicy enough, add more fresh chili, or chili sauce. If too sour, add a little more brown sugar.
# Place sauce in a wok or large, deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken (or beef) pieces, plus the whole star anise, and stir well.
# Continue stirring occasionally as you bring the curry to a boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer. Do not cover the wok/frying pan, as you want the sauce to reduce and become thicker.
# Allow the curry to simmer (stirring occasionally) for up to one hour, or until meat is cooked and tender. The sauce will reduce, so that it is almost like a coating on the meat (plus there will be a little sauce leftover in the wok/pan).
# Serve directly from the wok/pan, or place the curry on a serving plate (with any extra sauce poured over). Garnish with a sprinkling of shredded coconut and fresh coriander (fresh chives work too, as in the picture). Serve hot with Thai jasmine-scented rice, or Easy Thai Coconut Rice.

Coffee: What Are The Health Benefits?

Coffee: What Are The Health Benefits?
by: Aaron Matthews Morgan

If you are a coffee drinker, you no doubt have asked yourself how much coffee is it safe for you to consume on a daily basis. This is not surprising since so much has been blamed on coffee. Heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, you name it. At one time or another, coffee has been made to blame. Coffee has joined the ranks of red wine and chocolate as a guilty pleasure that may actually be good for you. As much as it is a great way to get that fix in the morning, recent studies have shown that coffee has been found to be rich in antioxidants and contains hundreds of pain-relieving and anti-bacterial compounds. Although one should not drink coffee with wild abandon, it's comforting to know that maybe that cup or two in the morning may be good for you. Here is a statistic to ponder: did you know that there are over 160 million coffee drinkers in the Unites States alone? In terms of consumption, the average American consumes 8.8 lbs. of coffee per year. But consider this: the world leader in terms of consumption is Finland which comes in at nearly 30 lbs per year. That's a lot of coffee!

Another statistic is that there have been well over 19,000 studies done to analyze the effects of coffee. Now, studies can often be skewed to show whatever the author wants, but here is what is generally agreed: consuming 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day is often considered more beneficial than harmful. Recent studies have shown that moderate coffee drinking can reduce the risk of colon cancer (due to it's ability to keep you regular), gallstones, cirrhosis of the liver and more, due to the fact the it is loaded with healthy antioxidants. So loaded, that studies have implied that coffee contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other commonly consumed beverages, such as tea and fruit juice. Coffee has joined the ranks of red wine and chocolate as a guilty pleasure that may actually be good for you. As much as it is a great way to get that “fix” in the morning, recent studies have shown that coffee has been found to be rich in antioxidants and contains hundreds of pain-relieving and anti-bacterial compounds. Although one should not drink coffee with wild abandon, it's comforting to know that maybe that cup or two in the morning may be good for you. Several studies are also being conducted on Parkinson's and diabetic Patients. Research has shown that just one cup of coffee per day can halve your risk of Parkinson's, the brain disease that causes tremors and affects movement. Caffeine may protect the brain cells typically lost to Parkinson's disease. However, it has been noted that women on hormone therapy do not seem to benefit. It is felt that Estrogen may dilute the effectiveness of caffeine. It has also been found that if a woman drinks three cups of coffee a day, she can reduce her risk of Type 2 Diabetes by twenty to thirty percent. Coffee may help promote the delivery of insulin to the tissues. Experts believe that coffee's antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid and caffeine acid, deserve the credit. There are also on going studies that are producing favorable reports on coffee helping to fight Alzheimer's due to the caffeine stimulating the cognitive area of the brain. This is just the tip of the ice berg.

People with asthma who drink coffee can have up to 25 percent fewer symptoms because one of the compounds in coffee - theophylline - acts as a bronchodilator. A recent Brazilian study showed that consumption of coffee promotes better sperm mobility - and now studies are in progress to determine whether caffeine can help infertile men. Coffee contains polyphenols, substances that may reduce the risk of cancer and coronary artery disease. Caffeinated coffee, as opposed to decaffeinated coffee, makes you a better thinker. Studies have shown that coffee keeps you focused, particularly when you are doing not-so-pleasant work. A researcher with the U.S. Army stated caffeine improved scores on a range of cognitive tasks, such as decision making, learning, and attention in the sleep-deprived. Coffee can also boost your mood, probably by making you feel more energetic. A little known fact is that coffee contains antioxidants which have been shown to imporve oveall health. Here is a short list of some benefits which have been shown to be present in coffee:

Reduce symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

Antibacterial ingredients

Reduce the risk of developing gallstones

Preserve mental accuity

Reduce risk of developing type 2 Diabetes (if you have diabetes, reduce your consumption

If you are free of hypertension, coffee will not likely produce it

Headache relief

Reduce the risk of some types of cancer

Improve physical endurance

Rendang is a dish which originated from the Minangkabau ethnic group of Indonesia,[1] and is now commonly served across the country.[2] One of the characteristic foods of Minangkabau culture, it is served at ceremonial occasions and to honour guests.[3] Also popular in Malaysia and Singapore, rendang is traditionally prepared by the Malay community during festive occasions. Though rendang is sometimes described as being like a curry, and the name is sometimes applied to curried meat dishes in Malaysia, authentic rendang is nothing like a curry.[1]

Rendang is made from beef (or occasionally chicken, mutton, water buffalo meat, duck or vegetables like jackfruit or cassava) slowly cooked in coconut milk and spices for several hours until almost all the liquid is gone, leaving the meat coated in the spicy condiments. The cooking process changes from boiling to frying as the liquid evaporates. The slow cooking process allows the meat to absorb all the spices and to become tender. The spices may include ginger, galangal, turmeric leaf, lemon grass and chillies. Chicken or duck rendang also contains tamarind, and is usually not cooked for as long as beef rendang.[4]

There are two kinds of rendang: dried and wet. Dried rendang can be kept for 3–4 months, and it is for ceremonial occasions or to honour guests. Wet rendang, also known as kalio, can be found in Minangkabau restaurants and without refrigeration it should be consumed within a month.[3]

Rendang is often served with rice in Indonesia but in Malaysia it is also served with ketupat (a compressed rice cake) and lemang (glutinous rice barbecued in bamboo tubes).

Indonesian rice table

Diposting oleh Indonesian food

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An Indonesian rice table (in Dutch, rijsttafel) consists of rice accompanied by between twelve and thirty, often spicy, side dishes served in small portions. Popular side dishes include egg rolls, sambals, satay, fish, fruit, vegetables, pickles, and nuts. It is a Dutch colonial adaptation of the Indonesian dinner, and popular only in the Netherlands. However, a growing number of restaurants and hotels in the tourist areas in Indonesia serve rice table.

The number of side dishes depends mainly on the number of guests; in a restaurant, as many as two dozen side dishes may be served. In many restaurants, the side dishes are brought to the guests' table, covering the table with the many small plates

Rice is a staple for all classes in contemporary Indonesia,[1] and it holds a central part in Indonesian culture: it shapes the landscape; is sold at markets; and is served in most meals as a savoury and sweet food. Rice is most often eaten as plain rice (nasi putih) with just a few protein and vegetable dishes as side dishes. It is also served, however, as ketupat (rice steamed in woven packets of coconut fronds), lontong (rice steamed in banana leaves), intip (rice crackers), desserts, noodles, brem (rice wine), and nasi goreng (fried rice).[2]

It was only incorporated, however, into diets as either the technology to grow it or the ability to buy it from elsewhere was gained. Evidence of wild rice on the island of Sulawesi dates from 3000 BCE. Evidence for the earliest cultivation, however, comes from eighth century stone inscriptions from the central island of Java, which show kings levied taxes in rice. Divisions of labour between men, women, and animals that are still in place in Indonesian rice cultivation, can be seen carved into the ninth-century Prambanan temples in Central Java: a buffalo attached to a plough; women planting seedlings and pounding grain; and a man carries sheaves of rice on each end of a pole across his shoulders. In the sixteenth century, Europeans visiting the Indonesian islands saw rice as a new prestige food served to the aristocracy during ceremonies and feasts.[1]

Rice production requires exposure to the sun. Rice production in Indonesian history is linked to the development of iron tools and the domestication of water buffalo for cultivation of fields and manure for fertilizer. Once covered in dense forest, much of the Indonesian landscape has been gradually cleared for permanent fields and settlements as rice cultivation developed over the last fifteen hundred years.[1]

Cooking Tips To Make Life Easier In The Kitchen - Part One by Chris Teo

Diposting oleh Indonesian food on Minggu, Maret 09, 2008

Here are some quick and easy cooking tips that may save your day.

1) If you are a beginner, start with a simple recipe. Do not be overzealous and choose some recipes that require way too much preparation. Choose a healthy cooking recipe that you can prepare easily. When you are better, you can opt for something more challenging.

2) It is recommended that you prepare all the ingredients that you need for your gourmet recipe before you start heating the pan or pot. Otherwise, you may get all excited if you forget something along the process thus spoiling or overcooking your food. It's great to have everything freshly cut and prepared during your cooking but if you are an amateur, it is still better you get all your ingredients ready first before you start heating up your pan or pot.

3) It is wise to measure your ingredients rather than just estimate. Follow your given recipe as closely as possible. Of course, cooking is not set in stone. For example, if you don't like your cake too sweet, you can reduce the amount of sugar stated in the recipe by a quarter. Likewise, you can substitute butter for margarine to suit your tastebuds.

4) Cooking temperatures is very important. So be sure to follow the recommended heat settings especially when you are baking.

5) Cook only one dish at a time so you can manage it better. If you have two or three dishes cooking at the same time, you may find yourself running around checking the oven, microwave or pot. By the time you finish, you will be so tired and stressed, you won't be able to enjoy your meal. So just take it easy and cook one dish at a time.

6) It is a good idea to set your table before you start cooking so that once the food is ready, you and your family or friends can just sit down and enjoy the meal while it is still hot.

Do you know that you can cook like a professional chef even if you don't have much experience in cooking? Would you like to cook and serve popular restaurant dishes to your family or friends at minimal cost? To find out the secret click here

Scientists have touted the Mediterranean diet for heart health for some time, but now there is more and more evidence that this diet can keep you healthy in other ways also. This diet was a paradox for many American doctors because the people of the Mediterranean areas ate high quantities of fat, but had much lower rates of cardiovascular disease than Americans who consumed similar amounts of fats. One explanation was that olive oil was the main fat consumed in the Mediterranean countries instead of the high amount of animal fat eaten here in the United States. The basics of the diet are to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, nuts, fish, whole grains, healthy fats, and red wine in moderation. To cut the risk of diabetes, it is better to choose complex carbohydrates to prevent the insulin surges that refined carbohydrates cause. Oats and whole wheat are good choices for breakfast. Leafy greens are not only cancer fighters, but they lower cardiovascular risk. The more you eat the lower your risk. The folate found in darker greens can help your brain age gracefully. Don't neglect eating beans. These wonderful legumes lower artery-clogging LDL-the bad cholesterol, and also do not cause blood sugar spikes. Omega-3 fats found in seafood also protect against heart disease. Recent studies have found that colorectal-cancer rates are much lower in people who ate the most seafood. Another benefit of eating fish seems to be lower rates of depression and Alzheimer's disease. Some guidelines for eating healthier are to force fruits by eating at least one serving at breakfast, another as a snack between meals, and then eat more fruit for dessert at dinner. Mix your veggies by having a salad or soup that blends several vegetables and beans. Cut way back on red meat by eating more fish and chicken. When red meat is eaten, try mixing it with grains and vegetables in stews or similar dishes. When possible, use olive oil in place of other oils and fats, including butter and margarine. Use extra-virgin olive oil which is higher in phenols that have antioxidant characteristics. It's the only type that's entirely unrefined. Sipping a glass of red wine has long been linked to lower heart disease risk. Purple grape juice is just as effective. So if you don't drink alcohol, having a glass of grape juice will also keep your blood vessels elastic. Mediterranean herbs help to battle insulin resistance. Try adding sage or oregano to food to double insulin activity. Turmeric and cloves triple it. By far, cinnamon is the best spice for lowering blood sugar and LDL. Sprinkle it on sweet potatoes or squash. Try eating different kinds of fruits such as figs and dates. They have much higher antioxidant content than that of other fruits. And lastly, keep almonds and pistachios around for snacking. Although nuts are high in fat, eating a handful a day protects against adding extra pounds. Walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and almonds although high in calories are low in saturated fats.

The Real Story Behind Gourmet Coffee

Diposting oleh Indonesian food

Whether your a proclaimed coffee lover or a regular of Starbucks, you won't be capable of understanding the art of appreciating genuine gourmet coffee unless you grasp the history and knowledge associated with gourmet coffee. Oh, of course, you don't have to an connoisseur to love and appreciate gourmet coffee, but understanding a little bit more than the supermarket who sells you the instant coffee would help you admire the flavour, aroma and pure bliss that gourmet coffee fans understand gourmet coffee is truly capable of.

Gourmet coffee is the complete opposite to fine wine. With wine, the longer it sits, the better it tastes, as its quality and price increases. But with gourmet coffee, freshness is an absolute must. If feasible, get coffee beans that have been roasted no more than 1 week beforehand. And if you're going to discover how to cherish gourmet coffee, it's essential that you only buy 100% Arabica coffee.

It's nearly impossible to find fresh roasted coffee on the shelves of your local supermarket. There is a really good chance, that the coffee that you're drinking today have been roasted 2 or more months ago. You can try and change this problem by purchasing whole roasted coffee beans in batches from reputable on-line companies and grind them at home only when you need it. This is simpler that you think, as gourmet coffee companies have become more accessible with the onset of the Internet . Combine that with affordable at-home technology, it has become even easier to enjoy real gourmet coffee in the comfort of your own home whenever you feel fit.

In order to get the most out of your purchase, you want to do everything that you can to ensure the freshness of the coffee. After purchasing your gourmet coffee beans, it is almost a sin to leave it sitting out on the counter at room temperature. The first step is to make sure that you store any unused coffee in an airtight container. If you are a regular coffee drinker, you can safely store the container in the refrigerator. But if you enjoy gourmet coffee only on special occasions or when you have guests, it is important to store your unused coffee beans in the freezer. This helps to keep the coffee fresh. It won't be exactly like freshly roasted coffee, but it will still be superior to the stale stuff that you buy off the supermarket shelves.

As with other products like wine, the area where the grapes are grown makes a really big difference. This is no different with gourmet coffee. There are two very important facts to consider. First, the country the gourmet coffee beans are grown can make a difference in taste and quality. But just as important is the company that roasts and sell the gourmet coffee beans. Remember to buy only from companies that have proven themselves. This is not hard to find out. Coffee tastings and reviews are a big part of the industry, and that information is readily available.

The most important thing about gourmet coffee is that you must take the time to really appreciate it. If you plan on slamming a cup of coffee as you run off to work in the morning, then stick the instant stuff. It's almost an insult to all the hard work and art that goes into making really good gourmet coffee.

Oolong Tea - The Weight Loss Tea

Diposting oleh Indonesian food

Oolong Tea and it's health benefits. Somewhere between Green Tea and Black Oolong Tea makes a great alernative brew.

What Makes a Tea an Oolong Tea?

There are 3 main distinct types of tea which can be generally categorized as follows:

a) Green Tea: is treated or boiled following picking to prevent the leaves from oxidizing and retaining their natural colour.

b) Black Tea: is left to oxidize following picking, that's how it gets their distinctive colour.

c) Oolong Tea: the raw leaves are sun-wilted and then bruised, which exposes their juices to the air, so the leaves oxidise and start to turn brown like a cut fruit. They are allowed to oxidise only partially, giving them a rich, floral flavour. The tea is then dried fully; locking in the rich flavors that oolong tea is known to offer. Oolong's unique drying process creates a tea that has many metabolic stimulating attributes.

Oolongs range from bright green and slightly fermented to dark-leafed and hearty. The greener varieties are less fermented. Oolong tea therefore comes in a wide range of tastes and aromas from teas very close in taste to green tea to those very close to black tea.

Health Benefits

Oolong tea burns over 157% more fat than Green Tea - and therefore becoming the most popular teas designed to accelerate weigh loss.

Drinking two cups of Oolong tea every day not only helps shed stubborn pounds by boosting your metabolism, but also blocks the fattening effects of carbohydrates.

Wulong tea promotes beauty and health - Oolong tea contains a large quantity of polyphenol which:

* promotes strong, healthy teeth;
* improves cognitive functioning and mental well-being;
* preventing eczema, allergies;
* clarifies your skin, giving it a healthy, radiant glow and
* strengthens your immune system.
