Neapolitan Pizza

The pizza only uses the hand kneaded dough which need not be rolled using any mechanical method. Also, the pizza cannot exceed in diameter more than 35 centimetres and it should not be thicker than one third of a single centimetre at the centre. The most essential condition is to bake it in a domed, wood-fired oven kept at 900 degree F for 60-90 seconds. Creating Neapolitan pizza is an art as it is a perfect blend of exotic ingredients and a traditional cooking style.

Secret Ingredients

First of all, you need strong plain flour, salt and yeast to prepare the dough. Then, you are required to work on the toppings that include plum tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, freshly grated parmesan cheese, basil leaves, dried oregano, chopped mozzarella and ground black pepper. You can add additional toppings like finely chopped garlic cloves, rosemary sprig, grated taleggio, speck, courgette, aubergine, prosciutto and rocket leaves to bring out the flavour.

The Recipe

Preparation starts with preheating the oven at 500 degree F. After that, you may

True coffee aficionados are spoilt for choice when it comes to coffee types, brands and blends. But one of the most popular brands is without a doubt Nespresso coffee pods. Nespresso coffee capsules are a favourite all over the world. One problem, Nespresso isn’t Italian and its coffee isn’t made in Italy. So if you’re looking for an authentic Italian espresso.

Home Coffee Roasters

1. The Taste of the Roast is in its Smell: Green Coffee beans emit a characteristic “grassy” smell as they turn yellowish few minutes after heat subjection. With further roasting, the beans begin to smoke, like coffee, giving it its peculiar smell and taste.

2. Cracking Sound Gives Good Clue about the Roast Stages: Further roasting gives off a unique crack sound as the bean loses water and changes structure with rising temperature. Listening for this sound can be a fantastic clue to determine desired roasts.

3. Length of Roast Determines Color and Flavor of Beans: Since bean structure, flavor and color graduates with each upward step in temperature, and increasing time, it is not unexpected to observe the original green bean character turn dark, with a stronger flavor, at the end of the process.

Steps to Roasting Coffee at home

Whatever is the technique employed, the instrument used or even the time set, roasting coffee at home all bores down to achieving significant desired flavors.

1: Choose a Roaster: Depending on budget, technique, time or batch size, it can be done in an oven, a skillet, a stovetop popper, or more specialized

Bar Cafe Chanson in De Pere

Cafe Chanson has an interesting layout. If you enter in the back way, you face the restaurant part. If you enter through the front, you face the bar part. As we walked down the hallway toward the bar we noticed that we were the only classy bar flys around. Upon taking our seats at the bar, the bartender greeted us and gave us some drink menus to peruse. He was super friendly and very attentive. The drink menu is quite expansive. Their wine list offers different and unique reds, whites, and bubblies. And, yes, many of your choices are French. The prices for wines start at $6; the wines we chose were $9. The bartender even offered us a sample to make sure we would enjoy our choice of red, cool no? Most of the wines can be purchased by the glass, as opposed to bottles only.

Espresso Advantages

However, there is one part of the coffee that is the best for your health as is described above and that is the fresh flavor that is derived from the coffee beans. The reason that the fresh flavor is the culprit of most of the health benefits is because the freshly brewed coffee beans contain very rich antioxidants that are great for your health.

One of the reasons that espresso is even better for you than regular coffee is a result of the steam being pushed through the ground coffee beans. This occurs so quickly that much of the flavor and antioxidants are in that single cup of espresso.

On the other hand, regular black coffee drinkers may gain some of the benefits from the antioxidants, although the most beneficial cup of coffee to your health that you will ever have is the first cup! After the first cup of the regular coffee is squeezed out then the benefits of the coffee diminish because there are less antioxidants in the second, third, or fourth cups!

Even though many people may disbelieve that espresso is good for your health, many researchers have shown that drinking at

Cassareep Cafe on Beach

Cassareep Cafe is the perfect afternoon spot for a peaceful, lazy lunch. Grab a quick bite to eat, or a coffee, either inside the air conditioned cafe, or do what we did – step outside onto the beach front deck and sit under the trees overlooking the beach and sea. The orientation of the outside dining area belies the fact that the cafe location is in the heart of Speightstown, arguably Barbados’ third largest city. You feel as though you’re sitting on the Belmont Walkway in laid back Bequia or on a picnic at a remote stretch of beach.

A delicious and well conceived menu offers breakfast along with daily lunch specials, together with rotis, pepperpot, curries, kebabs, pasta, sandwiches and wraps. Compliment your meal with tropical smoothies and Dining on the DeckLaVazza coffee drinks. A limited wine and beer selection is available.

Plans are in the making to extend the hours of Cassareep Cafe during the “winter” season to include dinner service and sunset to moonlight drinks

All about Black Coffee

Contains essential nutrients

When you drink black coffee, say 4 times a day, you get good doses of essential nutrients – 1 cup of black coffee has about 6% vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), 11% vitamin B2 (riboflavin), 2% vitamin B3 (niacin) and magnesium, and 3% potassium and manganese. As you may know, these nutrients are very good for health.

Packed with antioxidants

Known to be packed with antioxidants than any vegetable and fruit could give you, it does not in any way mean you are going to live on black coffee throughout the day! The antioxidants are excellent metabolism boosters, especially when your metabolism is at a lower level.

Helps protect from liver cirrhosis

If you drink black coffee in moderation – 4 to 5 cups a day – it helps you protect liver against developing cirrhosis. Not only cirrhosis, it has protective effects on fatty liver, hepatitis and other liver-related diseases.

Burns fat!

Caffeine helps in burning fat! Yes, it is true. It is one of the major ingredients used in fat burning supplements. As you may know, caffeine boosts metabolism by about 10%; in turn, it helps in burning

Northern Star Cafe

Whilst I was living in Hamilton and working in Hexham, I used to Duck off for lunch at the Italian restaurant on Beaumont St. The Northern Star Cafe is easy to find. It is next to the Northern Star hotel but has no association to the hotel. Parking can be a bit difficult. Best to park around the corner and walk up to the restaurant.The lighting inside is indirect and gives the unique Mediterranean ambiance.

The Northern Star is a Cafe-style Italian cuisine restaurant. They have ethnic style dishes, mostly originating from the Mediterranean coastline. They have a great variety of salad or vegetable-based dishes. My favorite is Caesar salad. My wife always takes the salad combination with fruit and King prawns. The fruit that comes with the salad varies, such as grapes, avocado, or pears. My favorite appetizer is Prawns cooked in Chilli with special sauces and herbs. My wife’s selection is always the Grilled Chicken Ceaser Salad. They serve fabulous Pastas. Their variations of fish and meat are excellent, including Chicken, veal and steak.

We like the restaurant’s selections for the lunch and dinner menus. However, there is one thing that this restaurant has

Information of Hamdog

The story made me think about other incongruous food combinations. Salads used to be simply lettuce with salad dressing. Over time, other raw vegetables made their way into salads. Now, people commonly put meat in their salad. Thus, we have tuna salad, chicken salad, fish salad, and we also have fruit salad. But “hamdog” seems to have crossed some line of respect. It is a presentation of two different critter meats. I say two, but who really knows what critter is in a hot dog?

Would you go to a fine restaurant and order “lambkin?” That would be lamb with chicken. How about “horsenpfeffer” (horse meat and rabbit stew)? They do eat horse meat in some countries. There is no reason why a meat-on-meat culinary creation cannot come to America from any country if the Australians can send us “hamdog.” In fact, the possibilities of what critter meat is in a hot dog expand greatly when you consider what Australian critter meats might be put in one of those.

My mom likes to eat fried chicken livers. Could “hamdog” inspire the combining of organ meats from different animals? If you are a vegan you may puke

Some Desserts With Coffee

Flavored Ice Pops

Many people only associate ice pops or popsicles with fruit juice or soft drinks. However, these can just as easily be made by using a combination of milk and coffee as well. Instead of making the coffee with water, it should be made with milk, poured into molds and be allowed to set in the freezer for a few hours. Anyone who is allergic to dairy can consider using coconut milk, almond milk or even rice milk as a substitute and still enjoy a cold dessert.

Espresso Brownies

Although these delectable coffee desserts may not be suitable for young children, they will definitely be a hit at an all-adults dinner party. When using any regular brownie recipe, a few tablespoons of any type of finely ground espresso can be used to enhance the flavor substantially, while also adding an interesting twist to what is usually a relatively plain dessert.

Coffee Panna Cotta

This is an extremely smooth and creamy dessert that can be prepared in shaped molds, with a coffee-based and/or brandy sauce that is flambéed over it. The dessert itself can then be garnished with chocolate chips, chocolate-covered coffee

Solstice Cafe

Simple metal tables painted over with an amateur painter’s touch, walls lined with paintings in various media and a bar serving both omelettes and alcohol, this is yet another secret spot unvisited by the hordes of breakfast feeders searching for another order of biscuits, grits and pancakes.

Solstice Cafe is what would happen if you turned an excellent bohemian coffee shop into a breakfast and lunch spot and then gave it a liquor license. The staff is friendly and on this particular Sunday morning, everyone seems to be gripping the hours before tomorrow as they sip their coffees and enjoy Sinatra crooning over the speakers.

The menu is lite, mostly consisting of eggs, sandwiches, potatoes and other simple fare. No pancakes, no super size servings. Just a quiet space away from the lines at the Flying Biscuit, Thumbs Up, and Crescent Moon – all with a huge painting of Elvis behind the bar.

Camille Sidewalk Cafe

They have different menus at different meal times throughout the day. They serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon chill, dinner, and catering. The photos of their menu line up will surely make you want for more. These restaurants are very famous for their gourmet wraps and sandwiches, and also serve fresh salads, fruit smoothies and Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice. In addition to these, desserts and freshly baked goods can also be enjoyed in their full coffee bar. The restaurant is famous for its Creamy Tuscan Tomato soup, and signature salsa. This restaurant is ideal for upscale lifestyle centers and metropolitan retail centers or office parks.

If you’re thinking of starting this type of franchise then expect full support from the Camille’s Sidewalk Café family. They will assist you from the architecture and construction phase, cafe management training and will even be there to give you moral support on your grand opening. You’ll have a direct line with the corporate office and will easily get email and phone assistance. Their cafe management training is good for 12 days which is very comprehensive to help you get going right away. As a franchisee, you are considered as Camille’s customers and not

Brazilian Coffee

From the span of 1880 to 1930, Brazil had a substantial increase in coffee production. By 1920, Brazil supplied 80% of the world’s coffee (imagine having almost the entire world dependent on you for coffee!). In more recent times, Brazil supplies almost 60% of the world’s total production (still not a bad feat to be producing for more than half the world).

So, why was there such a clamor for Brazilian coffee and why is it still true today? Perhaps it can be credited to their unique picking method. Brazil strip picks it traditionally—this means that they will only make a pass or two on a tree. So if there is uneven ripening, all levels of ripeness are chosen.

But even beyond their traditional picking method, Brazil makes such great tasting coffee because they go the natural and pulped natural method route in terms of processing. If you would ask a regular Brazilian on the street about this method, they might just inform you that this traditional processing for the past 150 years (even before pulping machines were available) has helped create this very unique Brazilian coffee blend of complexity and sweetness.

Baked Pepperoni Casserole

Gluten Free Cafe

I checked out Kashmir on a sunny Saturday afternoon and was treated to a wonderful chicken breast pakora’s with a beautiful salad. The flavor of the Kashmir menu is cafe style Indian, Thai and Mediterranean food styles. Indian dishes, such as Chicken and Onion Pakoras, Thai dishes, such as chicken satay and fish cakes and Mediterranean dishes such as Chickpea and Zucchini patties, mean that everyone will find something they like.

On the sweeter side I had a lovely real apple Turkish tea and then to investigate the cakes! There are so many to choose from I did not know what to do! All the cakes are baked on site, and therefore are different from your standard range. I have managed eventually to decide on a cranberry cake. It was light, fluffy and fruity.

The home-wares, jewelery and accessories are also fantastic and worth a browse while your food is prepared. Kashmir certainly worth a trip to Redcliffe! Check the details out on our site.
