The food world is forever growing thanks to new disciplines like molecular gastronomy. It’s like the fashion industry, wherein every season, a new crop of foods just pop-out like mushrooms. Honestly, there’s so many of them that just thinking about how many dishes there is out there gives me instant indigestion. So, if you are a certified foodie, I bet you would be craving to sink your teeth into the following. Remember, we love healthy foods, so some of the below should be only for special occasions!
If you are a great Harry Potter freak, such as I am, I’m sure you have heard of this mouth-watering drink. Every time someone from the book orders this drink, it makes me want to taste it. Really. Thank goodness someone thought of a way to copy the celebrated wizard drink.
Ingredients: 1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda, ½ cup (4oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping), ½ tablespoon butter
One: Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 ½ minutes or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated.
Two: Stir and cool for at least 30 seconds. Slowly mix in club soda.
I forgot where I got this recipe though, but I can assure you it’s from somewhere in the internet, so credits to the one who came up with this.
Just recently I was talking about how great food pasta is and how it seems to go well together with almost anything. (In connection with the molecular gastronomy mention above, I’ve been reading about how science is improving even age-old pasta recipes – see Heston Blumenthal’s Spaghetti Bolognaise). And, of course, when we talk about pasta we’re also talking about noodles – and most people don’t know about some of the really classic noodle dishes from places like Korea.
This Korean food is just so great I need to share it with you guys. It’s also known as black bean noodles, and it’s quite a Korean favourite. There’s a really great recipe for it on the Internet – google “anjelikuh Jajangmyeon”
Okay, this is not entirely a new dish in itself, but it’s just so good I have to share it with everyone. Basically, Kare-kare (say kah-reh-kah-reh) is a Philippine stew made with meat, vegetables and peanut butter or peanut sauce. Again, there are lots of great recipes for it on the Internet – Google it.
