Text: Karina Sembe Pickles and jams are not grandmothers, although they still seem to be the best. From a forced measure, home-made preparations turned into a grateful hobby: you can not only preserve cucumbers and tomatoes on an industrial scale into three-liter jars - now they do it gracefully and subtly.
Olga Lukinskaya This year Easter falls on the same day both according to the Julian calendar, which is used by the Orthodox Church, and according to the Gregorian, which the Catholics and supporters of some other faiths are guided by. Even those who are far from religious traditions, Easter is associated with Easter cakes, cottage cheese desserts and colorful eggs; in European countries, these days are extra weekends and school holidays, so everyone feels like a holiday.
WE CONTINUE TO TELL ABOUT worthy accounts in social networks through which you can view the whole world. There are few things in the world that are as good as dogs and food. Instagram @dogs_infood is dedicated to both: its author lays out collages, where the Shar Pei turns into dim itself, the poodle into arancini, the Pomeranian spitz into a ball of ice cream, and the pug into chocolate chip cookies.
In spite of the fact that it is much easier to wake up with sunlight, we don’t want to break the morning cup of coffee. In case you got tired of it, we found ten recipes for cool drinks - hot and cold - that will cheer up just as well. Many recipes are especially sugar-free: fast carbohydrates allow you to cheer up only for a short time and generally lead to nowhere.
Text: Ksyusha Murlykina In the kitchen, all means are good: for beginners, even the strangest skill, like cleaning kiwi with a spoon, can be unexpectedly by the way, and there is always something to learn from experienced cooks. In this material we have collected culinary tricks that will facilitate and speed up the process of preparing dishes and drinks for the festive table.
Text: Olga Antonova, at the height of winter, the expression “festive spirit” acquires a literal meaning: the time comes for “seasonal” flavors, everywhere tangerines and ginger. On this occasion, we recently collected recipes for spicy warming drinks. But New Year and Christmas are getting closer, and time to think about special dishes for the festive table.
Text: Karina Sembe If during the May holidays you did not have time to get out “on the kebabs”, do not despair. The whole summer is ahead, which means there will be an opportunity to throw more than one party in the fresh air, and it's time to start doing it in a new way. If you or your friends have a grill, a party with a barbecue is a great option for a picnic in nature, chit-chatting at the cottage or a party on the roof.
Very soon it will be possible to recline on the couch with a beautiful glass of champagne or a cocktail, but so far there is one more jerk left - to prepare at least something for dinner (we sincerely hope you don’t need to run around December 31 in search of gifts). Without a salad, of course, a rare table will cost, but you need to cook something else - especially if you called your friends home and didn’t calculate their strength and time, which is not enough for planning the menu.
Text: Olga Antonova Hot flavored fish soup is the best thing that can happen on an overcast autumn day. As you know, fish is a source of protein, iodine, phosphorus, omega-3 and other useful microelements, so a tasty and hearty lunch will not only lift your spirits, but also add strength and health. We chose five options for fish soups of different national cuisines: each of them has a unique taste and smell, its own history of appearance and nuances in cooking.
Again we are fostering the game approach, this time to food (yes, we were also forbidden to roll bread balls in childhood). The food itself is quite exciting, but we chose 6 things that somehow make it even more interesting. Molds for eggs If you have ever stuck above the photographs for the query "bento egg mold", you will also feel delight at the sight of the molds, with which you can make a rabbit from a regular egg.
Olga Lukinskaya It is known that the correct glasses better reveal the aroma of wine, and the correct temperature makes its taste richer. Buying cool wine accessories is an opportunity to make your evening rituals more meaningful or surprise your guests. We have collected fifteen elegant, funny and interesting items that diversify the wine culture in a single apartment - or will be the answer to the eternal question of what to give to a person who has everything.
Olivier is the same symbol of the New Year as the decorated Christmas tree, the Blue Light and sandwiches with caviar. We think that even those who advocate for separate food all year long or run from mayonnaise from the fire (although we now doubt the correctness of this), in January, they let go of the salad bowl with peace of mind.
We continue to develop the theme of modernist gastronomy. In the previous article, Anton Utkin explained what the molecular kitchen is and why it is needed, but this time we asked him to tell about the gadgets that should be in each progressive kitchen. Scales Scales - the first device that separates the serious kitchen from culinary attempts and "did everything right" from the howls in the spirit of "my dough again did not fit."
We all have ever tried to eat right, being guided by inner sensations and stereotypes hovering in the air, rather than a specific program. There is nothing surprising in the fact that attempts did not succeed: in order to qualitatively change the diet, willpower is required (you need not only not to absorb chocolates one by one, but also to cook almost every evening), and a clear guide to action.
Food is a very important part of life, we do not hide it, but, on the contrary, we emphasize. We dealt with various aspects of the topic, from superfoods to chemicals that should be in every modern kitchen, and now we have compiled a digest of the most important materials that should not be missed. If you decide to rest on New Year's Eve, and arrange dinner parties for the holidays, here is the text of Maria Sorokina, the host of cooking classes, on how to cook a full-fledged dinner for several guests and not go crazy about the associated troubles.
Natasha Fedorenko "Why is it worth eating only fruit?" , “Raw food or fruitorism?”, “Fruitorism against arthritis” - in recent years, more and more bloggers have appeared in the Russian segment of youtube with tens of thousands of views who claim that they eat only fruit and feel great.
Most people agree that cooking is economical, tasty and healthy, but at the same time they are not at all ready to spend their time preparing the menu, going to the store and “standing over the pan”. Most often, the process is slowed down by poor preparation: the lack of menus, blanks, necessary ingredients, and absolute lostness in terms of time management.
Masha vorslav We talked a little about books about nutrition, but this topic is certainly inexhaustible - the benefit of intelligible publications on it is also a lot. Today we have selected 10 of them that explore different aspects of the relationship with food. "When Food Is Love: Exploring the Relationship Between Eating and Intimacy" Oprah called this book "life-changing."
Text: Karina Sembe Gluten Talk is the new black one; it would seem that everyone is already tired of them, but the topic is sore and does not give rest. Wellness bloggers with a raw food agenda are advised to exclude oatmeal from the diet, outraged skeptics blame everything on the conspiracy of marketers and pharmacists, and doctors look for words to return common sense to patients and rid them of the fear of bread.
We all at least once arranged for ourselves the so-called fasting days, most often on a whim - that is, limiting ourselves to a liter of kefir and a glass of boiled buckwheat. Such monodiets are actually harmful: the body feels most comfortable when it receives approximately the same amount of food regularly, and a roller coaster with a poor and overly rich diet knocks down metabolism and increases the load on the digestive system.
