Food Art: Almost too Pretty to Eat

What Women Eat: A Glance at the Good Eats from Around the Globe

What Women Eat: A Glance at the Good Eats From Around the Globe

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re taking a peek inside the heart of homes around the world to see what women are eating. What better way to do that than taking stock of what’s cooking in their kitchens?

Injera
ETHIOPIA
Family Favourites:  Food in Ethiopia is spicy and the country’s national dish is a fiery stew called wat. Made with chicken, beef, lamb or vegetables with lentils and ground split peas, wat is spiced using berbere, a red-hot seasoning paste made with chillies. In fact, there’s so much pride and importance placed on this go-with-everything condiment, local lore says that the woman who makes the best berebe has the best chance of nabbing a good husband.
Secret Weapon: Injera, a thin, pancake-like flatbread made from teff flour is loaded with fibre, vitamin C, and protein and is a staple of Ethiopian cuisine. Look for teff to overtake the almighty quinoa in terms of trendy, gluten-free alternatives, as A-listers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham are already on this grain’s bandwagon.

mexican tacos
MEXICO
Family Favourites: Forget fast-food-style tacos and burritos, authentic Mexican cuisine centres around fresh salsas, whole grains, fruit and chiles, beans and herbs, and is actually quite healthy. Dishes like corn tortillas filled with savoury grilled meats and fish, topped with fresh salsas made from ripe tomatoes, fruit, citrus and chiles; light soups full of vegetables, coupled with beans and vegetables, only minimal amounts of dairy and meat are eaten on a daily basis.
Secret Weapon: Traditionally speaking, lunch is the largest meal of the day. This is important since recent research suggests that the body is less responsive to insulin at night, so eating late in the day could cause weight gain, even if calories are the same.

pakistani meal
PAKISTAN
Family Favourites: Lentils, seasonal vegetables, flour and wheat products are the most abundant foods and make up the base of Pakistani cuisine. Chapatis, flat bread made from wheat, is a staple at most meals and is used to scoop up sauces and stews. Hearty vegetable-based dishes like the lentil stew dhal, as well as sides of potatoes, cabbage, okra, chickpeas and peas are an integral part of Pakistani cuisine.
Secret Weapon: Pakistani cuisine highlights tons of spices, which add yummy flavour, appealing colour, and surprising health benefits. Spices like turmeric and ginger may help to lower cholesterol.

US ribs
TEXAS, USA
Family Favourites: When we think of Texas, it’s hard not to think of the state’s notorious love of meat. Bacon, hamburgers, chicken fried steak, barbecue ribs; all served with a side of biscuits and gravy and a heaping slice of pecan pie. In 2000, total meat consumption reached a staggering 195 pounds per year.
Secret Weapon: While a protein-rich diet can help kick start weight loss, a new study says that eating too much meat and eggs is ‘just as bad as smoking’. The good news is that the pendulum seems to be swinging, as overall meat consumption is steadily going down among Americans.

 

japanese

JAPAN
Family Favourites: Fish and vegetables play a big role in Japanese food, and it’s common to see them cooked in broths, steamed or very lightly sautéed. Big bowls of steaming, flavourful soup with buckwheat noodles and tons of vegetables are a popular meal option, and such savoury dishes often make an appearance at breakfast.
Secret Weapon: As a culture, food in Japan is just healthier as a whole. They eat less red meat than their Americans or European sisters; opt for tofu as a go-to protein and eat a ton of fish. In fact, while Japan makes up about 2 percent of the world’s population, they eat 10 percent of the world’s fish.

french food
FRANCE
Family Favourites: It’s all about quality, not quantity. Food is meant to be savoured, not devoured and they don’t shy away from high-calorie goodies like chocolate, cheese and wine. At first glance, Pot-au-Feu, France’s national dish, is your typical stew. But even the way they eat this good-for-you favourite highlights the way that the French view food. Slow eating is celebrated and practiced, even this dish is served in multiple course, beginning with the bone marrow on toast, following with the broth and the meat and vegetables.
Secret Weapon: We get it. French women don’t get fat. But the truth is there’s some method to this madness and it’s actually quite simple. They drink a ton of water, they walk everywhere and most importantly, they eat less. Smaller portions of your favourite foods like quality dark chocolate and full fat cheese also make you feel more satisfied and the theory is that diving in on these small indulgences keep you from binging.

4 Easy Ways to Perfect the Potluck

4 Easy Ways to Perfect the Potluck

Potlucks are a great way to get your favourite people together for a feast that won’t leave you starved for cash. Each guest contributes one dish to the meal; someone’s aunt’s “famous” dip recipe usually makes an appearance alongside another guest’s signature cocktail, a baked pasta bubbles away in the middle, and the meal is often topped off with a store-bought dessert.

Note: nobody likes the guest who whizzed through the packaged produce aisle while everyone else slaved away in the kitchen! Save that for your weeknight book club meeting where the culinary expectations are minimal.

Everybody’s got a specialty or potluck go-to, but the culmination of guests’ mystery dishes doesn’t always make for a well-balanced meal.

Take control of your next community-cooked party by choosing a single dish that everyone can contribute an ingredient to. Choosing a simple and familiar dish is kind of like working with a blank canvas; guests can feel free to keep it traditional or bring along exotic ingredients to spice things up.

Here are four approachable, much-loved and easy dishes to plan your next potluck around:

1. Pizza A couple balls of white or whole-grain pizza dough
are the perfect vessels for any ingredient under the sun. Hosts should
portion the dough out for each guest beforehand and provide at least two
sauce and cheese options. Guests can bring along toppers from roasted
chicken to tater tots, bruschetta to fresh herbs. Don’t think this is
just for dinner either! Sweet pizzas topped with chocolate sauce,
berries and chopped nuts can keep the party going for an extra course or
two.

2. Sandwiches This is the best thing since sliced bread! Potluck hosts can have a
variety of breads (baguettes, slider buns, naan), condiments and basic
toppings laid out to start. Almost anything goes between the buns, so
whether your guests arrive with meatballs, butter chicken, or eggplant parmesan, you can turn it into a finger-friendly party dish.

3. Soup Potluck or Top Chef throwdown? Turn your next gethering into a Chopped-style challenge like Dine Out Vancouver’s Chef Soup Experiment, where fifty chefs contributed random ingredients that somehow had to be balanced and simmered into a delicious soup. Missed it? Check it out on @DineOutVan’s takeover of our Instagram feed! This is the riskiest of the four potluck options when it comes to flavour, but it is a guaranteed good time.

4. Baked Potato It’s the side that eats like a meal. Whether Russet or sweet, potatoes
are a hearty base for a potluck plate. Guests can load them up with chili, quinoa salads, cheeses, and even topped with eggs. The only thing that limits you here is your imagination!

5 Classic Soup Recipes We Can’t Get Enough Of

5-classic-soup-recipes

(Original images courtesy of: Thinkstock & Getty Images)

 

Food Network Canada has tapped the expertise of the local soup-erstars at The Burnt Tongue to revisit what they consider to be five quintessential classic soups – including two recipes being ladled up at the restaurant this week! – plus tips on storing soups and delicious ideas to spice up old favourites.

When it comes to soup, the possibilities are endless! At our restaurant we have cooked hundreds of soups and are trying new ones on a daily basis. But there are classic soups that we can’t seem to stray from, that magically bridge the gap between the present and our past, and are sure to stir up nostalgic memories. When done right, bowls of these recipes can have comforting and even healing qualities.

1. Chicken Noodle Soup Arguably one of the most classic soups. We’ve had this soup hundreds of times- to warm up on a Canadian winter day or to cure our malaise after catching a cold. This soup will freeze well if you add the noodles upon defrosting. Don’t forget to splurge on your stock- this is a must. Some ideas to update this soup include: switching up the herbs (try rosemary or mint), vegetables, add cream and different spices. One of our favourite swaps is using cheese tortellini in place of noodles.

2. French Onion Soup This soup is so popular it’s on almost every menu in North America. A rich, winter-friendly soup that has the added comfort of cheese and bread, and it freezes incredibly well. To take your French Onion to the next level, splurge on high quality onions which will produce a much better flavour when paired with a high quality spirit or wine like Calvados or Brandy.

3. Beef & Barley Soup This full flavored beef soup is a hearty meal in a bowl. With earthy undertones from the barley and vegetables, this soup is guaranteed to please even the pickiest of eaters. When making this recipe, don’t forget to invest in quality beef and pair it with your favourite red wine. Whether you make it yourself or purchase it from the market, a good stock is also a must. If you feel like changing things up, try swapping the beef for chicken and adding any of your favourite root vegetables.

4. Cream of Mushroom with Tarragon Soup This beautiful soup, made from mushrooms, cream and butter, has a rich and satisfying flavour that is the base for many sauces as well. The nostalgic flavours of this soup can be paired with anything from chicken and beef to fish and pork. It doesn’t freeze very well, but will last up to ten days in the fridge if the cream is added upon defrosting. Spend a little more for a quality assortment of fresh mushrooms. And don’t forget, 35% cream is a must! Ingredients to save on would be wine, tarragon, flour and stock. If you don’t like tarragon, you can swap it out for fresh thyme. Feeling like switching things up? Add some chicken, wild rice and smoked paprika!

5. Old Fashioned Cream of Tomato Soup with Arborio Rice Perhaps Chicken Noodle’s greatest contender; this soup is simmered with memories of eating with childhood friends and dipping buttery grilled cheese right into the bowl, creating one of the best pairings on earth. Seek out fresh tomatoes that are skinned and seeded for optimal texture and flavour. Feel like experimenting? Play around with herbs and spices or try using orzo pasta or wild rice in place of the arborio rice.

Homemade Gourmet Gingerbread House Decor

Homemade Gourmet Gingerbread House Decor

A well-decorated gingerbread house can be as show-stopping as a gorgeous Christmas tree. This holiday season, kick your cookie construction up a notch with homemade gourmet toppers. Think Anna Olson meets Sarah Richardson; with easy, upscale and delicious decor, your gingerbread house will taste as fabulous as it looks!

 

The Classics

Start with the basics and build from there. Prep a big batch of cookie icing – both for decor and as glue for your other decorations – then divide into small batches to be mixed with food colouring. Anna Olson’s standard royal icing recipe is the perfect base. Then step up the standard candy toppers by alternating clear tiles of this peppermint candies recipe with pink peppermint candies.


Double-Duty Decor

If you’re decking your halls with strings of popcorn, save a little for the gingerbread rooftop! Naked popcorn can be used as snow on your gingerbread house, or tint your leftovers with shades of brown by drizzling or tossing with dark chocolate, caramel and butterscotch for spectacularly decadent rooftop shingles.

 

Break It Up!

Fill a cookie sheet or baking pan with easy, large-batch recipes of sweet treats that can be snapped, crumbled and layered on and around your gingerbread house. Some of our favourites include almond nougat, peanut brittle, sponge toffee and peppermint crunch bark. Break sheets of these recipes into pieces and shapes that fit your design and vision. (It’s a good way to work out your holiday stress, too!).

 

The Gourmet Touch

Those who are into hardcore decor may choose to do some landscaping around their gingerbread homes. Adorn the house’s lawn with festive fondant flowers, and drape delicious “ornaments” made out of colourful fudge brownies. To cook up the illusion of fluffy snow, try this homemade marshmallow recipe to add some plush winter white.

 

Go Nuts!

Bring quick, easy and totally delicious decor out of its shell. Roast some honey-spiced nuts or whip up a batch of Chuck’s candied pecans to sprinkle some savoury flavour over your sweet creation. Mix and match your favourite nuts for a gingerbread house that’s got sugar, spice and everything nice!
