Coriander Root – Demystifying This Exquisite Ingredient

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

Thailand has one of the most exquisite cuisines in the world. I went backpacking through the country once, and found myself falling in love with the food almost immediately. From the hearty massaman curry to the perpetually-popular pad thai, there’s just so much to love about Thai food. Probably one of the reasons why Thai cuisine is so memorable to me is because of the fact that most of the food there has a distinctive flavor to them, courtesy of one special ingredient- coriander root.

Genoa Salami vs Hard Salami: The Difference Between Cured Meats

Written by Peter Allen on . Posted in food

Deli meats were a part of the culinary world that I neglected for a long time. I’ve always thought of myself as a bold, adventurous cook, and my forays into the sandwich world attempted to reflect this. I’d always use some “fancy” leftover meat or an array of cheeses and vegetables that tried to prove something. Alternately, I’d make myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

My love for cabbage rolls started way back in college, when one of my Ukrainian roommates cooked some for dinner. It was one of the heartiest and tastiest cabbage rolls I have ever tasted in my life, and I was instantly addicted. From then on, I’ve tried making cabbage rolls myself and perfecting my own recipe. I’ve even tried making different versions of the dish like the Ukrainian Golubtsi, the Polish Golabki, and the German Kohlrouladen. They’re all cabbage rolls, but each country has its own different twist on the dish so that no two are exactly alike.

What’s The Difference Between A Calzone and Stromboli? All About Different Types Of Pizza Rolls

Pizza is delicious but inconvenient. I know that this might sound odd to you: after all, pizza is a finger food that’s broken up into perfectly sized portions. It’s also easy to share or even to store for leftovers later.
 
Despite these facts, I still prefer calzones and strombolis to pizza, especially when I’m only cooking or ordering for myself. Both of these pizza turnovers are easy to eat by hand. They’re usually perfectly sized for one person and come with just the right mix of cheese, sauce, and meat on the inside.
