  5. 5. OLIVE OIL The essential elements of olive oil production have barely changed over thousands of years, though the methods themselves and the equipment have been improved, cleaned up, streamlined, and in some cases computerized. The olives are picked, mostly by hand, they are crushed, the resultant oil and watery juice drained off, separated, and the oil filtered to a greater or lesser extent. That is about it, and what you end up with is first cold – pressed Virgin Olive Oil. Virgin is a denomination which raises eyebrows amongst the uninitiated, but it is eminently logical. This oil is “virgin” because it is unadulterated, untampered with, and incontrovertibly pure. It has not been heated or chemically processed. Virgin oil varies dramatically in quality and is graded according to its acidity level the lower the acidity the better the oil. The international Olive Oil Council, which lays down the law in these matters, defines the grades as: Extra Virgin Olive Oil: virgin olive oil with an acidity of up to 1%; Fine Virgin Olive Oil: virgin olive oil with an acidity of up to 1%; Semi-Fine Virgin Olive Oil: virgin olive oil with an acidity of up to 3%. In addition to this, the oils must have a fine flavor and smell to pass the test. Even so, the variation in precise taste is dramatic. Some oils are distinctly peppery and catch the back of the throat on the way down, while others may be thick with the aroma of new-mown hay. The big brand name oils, are carefully blended to give a constant unvarying taste that is unique to that olive oil house. Oil from single groves will vary from year to year, just as wines do. Oils that do not make it through to the top three grades will probably be refined, i.e. stripped of flavor, by chemical processes. The left-over pulp from the first pressing will also go through one to two more extraction processes to yield up the very last drops of oil. Most of this will need to be cleaned up, too. Oils that have gone through these processes can no longer be labeled “virgin”. Some will have a modicum of flavor restored by the addition of a tot of virgin oil. These were once known as “pure olive oil” but are now simply labeled “olive oil”. The logic behind the terminology is less clear here. Sufficient to understand that they are oils that are lighter in flavor, and cheaper, and hence suitable for sloshing around in a carefree way. Well, that is the theory, anyway, and it is one I used to stick to fairly rigidly. But then, a few years ago, I started to cut down on the quantity of animal fat I used in cooking, and simultaneously began to discover the sheer delight of olive oil. After a while I noticed that I was no longer using the “pure olive oil”. I now use a blended extra virgin olive oil as my everyday cooking oil, because I love the taste, and find that there is little it does not go with. I use totally bland oil such as safflower when I positively do not want the taste of olive oil or any other oil around. And I use my special bottle of mind- numbingly expensive single-grove oil in small quantity, because that is all it takes, as a final condiment. The one exception I make to this rule is in mayonnaise. All olive oil, even pure olive oil, is just too much for me. I reckon that one-quarter to one-third extra virgin to plain oil is just about right. Suffice it to say that one cannot lay down exact rules on these matters. In the end, it comes down to personal preference. Olive oil and crusty bread are made for each other. An open tomato sandwich, Made with bread, oil, sweet tomatoes, salt and pepper is one of life's small joys, and you can elaborate on the basic theme with thin sliced onions, olives, basil and the rest, to your heart's content. Toast the bread, then rub with garlic and drizzle on the olive oil and you have the Italian bruschetta. Rub the bruschetta with a halved tomato, and it is better still. Nicest of all is bread, coated in olive oil and baked in a moderate-to-hot oven until crisp and golden brown through and through. Dress hot pasta with the same kind of mixture and eat it straight away with freshly grated cheese, or sharpen with lemon, or wine vinegar and let it cool to make a salad. Just as quick and simple is to turn the pasta with olive oil and freshly coarsely crushed black peppercorns. 4

If you have young finally cooked again before serving children, it is a good idea to leave a bowl of water in your microwave when the oven is par bake is not in use. This way, if the oven is accidentally turned on, the water attracts the microwaves and prevents damage to the oven. If you are concerned about the safety of your oven, have it tested by a qualified service person – don't try using “leakage detectors” which are inaccurate and unreliable. CONVERTING CONVENTIONAL RECIPES I t is possible to convert many recipes for quick cooking in the microwave oven – for instance, a family favorite like a long-simmering beef stew – but not all. For example, don't try to duplicate crisply fried items. First: Look for a microwave recipe that is similar to the conventional one you're trying to convert and use it as a guide. Recipes that serve up to eight people – no more – work best; small quantities cook more quickly and evenly in the microwave. Second: Reduce or omit fats, liquids, and seasonings. Third: Use microwave-safe cookware and suitable utensils. Fourth: Cut back cooking time to a quarter to a half of the conventional recipe time. Remember, microwave ovens do not need any preheating, which also saves time. Fifth: Remember, most microwave-cooked food usually needs standing time to finish cooking and even out the internal temperature after being removed from the
  7. 7. MIXING DOUGH MAKING A MIXTURE Bread is made from dough which is a mixture of flour, water, Yeast, fat and salt. These have to be kneaded together thoroughly to mix the ingredients. In a bakery, bread dough has to be mixed in a machine called a dough mixer, as it would take far too long to mix by hand. The dough mixer has a very large bowl with a special tool, called a dough hook, in the centre. The hook is spiral shaped, which can mix the ingredients and cut through the thick dough at the same time. An ordinary beater would at the same time. An ordinary beater would get stuck in the thick, sticky dough. FOOD PROCESSOR To make a milkshake, two different ingredients are mixed together in the glass – a powder and a liquid. The design of a fork is good for mixing liquids because it has metal prongs. When you move the fork around the glass, the prongs agitate the liquid until the powder is completely mixed. A spoon is also a good tool for making a mixture, such as coleslaw. This is a food made from salad cream and plain yoghurt with fresh, raw vegetables, such as grated carrots and shredded cabbage. The salad cream and yoghurt are smooth and the vegetable pieces are rough, but the stirring action of the spoon helps to turn the different ingredients into one mixture. WHISKING FOOD When you make up a packet of instant dessert mix, the dessert powder and The mixture to make a fruit cake has the milk should be whisked together.

  8. 8. OUR DAILY Good bread is a beautiful thing. It is a joy to look at and always a pleasure BREAD to eat. Good bread never cloys and we never grow bored with it. Bread is as honest and basic as it is emblematic and significant. Just as rice symbolizes life in the East and no meal is considered complete without it, so bread is at the very heart of Western civilization. Give us this day our daily bread. The smell of freshly baked bread, its crackling-crisp crust, its texture when it is broken or sliced and the consistency of its interior crumb, make it an immensely satisfying and complex culinary assembly. Yet its constituent parts are no more than flour, water and yeast tempered with a small amount of salt. As you bite into a piece of good baguette you experience all these elements in a taste that combines an underlying sweetness from the wheat, an almost imperceptible balancing sourness from the yeast and a stronger, contrasting slightly bitter note from the caramelized crust, the whole drawn together and given depth by the salt. A sourdough brings different and much stronger flavours, its defining characteristic the acid tang that comes from its lengthy, natural leavening with wild yeasts, the texture altogether denser, more robust and substantial. This is the darker-coloured country bread of ancient tradition, moister, more chewy and longer lasting, a description that in contemporary usage implies chemical additives but here means the FOCACCIA product of its entirely natural dev elopement. Such rustic loaves were Focaccia is described as Italian originally baked in 4 kilo ovals, family bread to last a week, changing in flat bread, a rather confusing taste and texture with progressive cutting and ageing, yet taking days description since it is leavened before staling. Even when too tough to chew, it may be eaten in soups or using active yeast. However, it is crumbed to add texture or to thicken a variety of dishes. This is indeed spread out and baked on trays or bread as the staff of life. in tins, which gives it a characteristic rectangular shape, Baking great bread does have a kind of alchemy, for in its artisanal the top marked with regular production there are always elements that are beyond technique, though depressions. It turns a beautiful not beyond technical comprehension. Ambient factors play important golden brown from the liberal roles but are not beyond the wit of any competent cook to understand and dressing with olive oil it receives harness. Even when the same recipe is used, the resulting bread will vary from place to place as different flours, the water used, temperature, just before going in the oven. A humidity and even air pressure impact in different ways. Individual common mistake is to incorporate technique also plays a part, all these things contribution to the unique too much olive oil into the dough quality of the finished loaf. itself, leading to a poor rise and an oily finish. Focaccia is always well Excellent bread is not only baked by master bakers. It can b e made salted on the surface and often successfully at home and in standard domestic ovens.

  11. 11. Chocolate & Molding How to Temper Chocolate Tempered chocolate is the secret to professional chocolate products. Chocolate that has been tempered is smooth, with a shiny finish and a satisfying snap. If you're planning on making dipped chocolates or molded chocolates, the chocolate will need to be tempered so that it behaves properly and produces candies that are both tasty and beautiful. Double boil method Chop the chocolate into small chunks, place it in the top of a double boiler, set over simmering water. Stir gently but steadily as the chocolate melts and heats up. Use a rubber spatula, not a wooden or metal spoon. Bring the chocolate to 11 degrees (for dark chocolate) or 110 degrees (for milk or white chocolate). Do not allow the chocolate to exceed its recommended temperature. When it is at the right temperature, remove it from the heat. You must keep it warm but not hot, ideally in the 85-88 degree range. You can either keep it over a pan of warm, stirring occasionally. Microwave method Chop chocolate into coarse chunks and pour into a microwavable bowl. Microwave it at 50% power for 3 minutes, stopping every 30-45 seconds to stir the chocolate until the remaining chunks are fully melted. If the chunks do not melt, warm the chocolate again very briefly. Remember to do a spot test to make sure, by spreading a spoonful of melted chocolate thinly over an area of waxed paper and allow it to cool. If it is tempered, the chocolate will harden within 5 minutes and look shiny and smooth. If it is dull or streaky, it has lost its temper, and you should temper the chocolate again.

  13. 13. Soufflé A soufflé is a light, fluffy, dessert made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients and served as a dessert. The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler which means "to blow up" or more loosely "puff up" — an apt description of what happens to this combination of custard and egg whites. Every soufflé is made from 2 basic components: • a base of flavored cream sauce or purée • Beaten egg whites. The base provides the flavor and the whites provide the "lift".

Whole-wheat breads are made from the whole kernel of wheat ground up into whole-wheat flour. This process neither adds nor removes anything from the wheat. Sprouted wheat is where the wheat is first sprouted, or let to grow, before it is ground up and put into the bread. This process adds s i g n i f i c a n t ly to t h e ove ra l l nutritional value of the bread, not to mention that it adds greatly to the flavor and texture of our bread.

However, keeping food safe and its quality high depends on proper freezing. 0 0 Check the temperature of the freezer. It should be 0 F (-18 C) or below. Foods you buy already frozen should be stored in their original packages. To freeze other foods, wrap in airtight wrapping such as freezer paper, heavy-duty aluminum foil, or freezer-quality plastic bags. You can also use plastic freezer containers. Avoid lightweight plastic tubs from foods such as cottage cheese, margarine, and yogurt. They do not provide enough protection in the freezer. Not all foods freeze well. Avoid freezing cooked egg whites, foods made with mayonnaise or salad dressing, gelatin, and raw vegetables you don't plan to cook. Dry Storage Foods that do not need refrigeration or freezing or freezing, such as unopened cans and many packaged foods are stored in a dry storage area. This area can be a cabinet or shelves. It should be cool, dry, and clean. Don't store food in cabinets above the refrigerator or range or near a radiator or furnace outlet. The temperatures will be too warm. Once packages are opened, close them tightly before storing to keep out insects. You may also put the food in containers with tight-fitting covers. Storing Groceries When you return from grocery shopping, store food right away. First put frozen foods in the freezer so they will not thaw. Next, refrigerate perishables such as milk, eggs, cheese, meat, poultry, and fish. Then store fruits and vegetables. Finally, store foods that belong in the dry storage area. When you put away your groceries, put new packages behind older ones of the same kind. By using up the older packages first, you will save food and money. 14
