Shipwrecked Wines Of The Past And The Niche Wineries Recreating Them Today

Shipwrecked Wines Of The Past And The Niche Wineries Recreating Them Today

A taste of history Shipwreck Shipwrecks are represented in media as rare and sunken treasures, tombs of a time forgotten. However, in all of human history, there are estimated to have been about 3 million shipwrecks. That’s three million vessels sitting on the ocean floor and we have discovered and explored less than 1% (30,000) of them. 30,000 may seem like a small number, but considering the enormous challenges facing underwater archaeologists in even locating them, we start to get a picture of the issues involved. The Titanic, for example, took 70 years to find and it was a well-documented and famous vessel. A great many other ships have sunk beneath the waves with barely any record. It makes it all the more incredible then that even after hundreds of years, some things can endure, preserved in hulls of long sunken ships, waiting to be re-discovered. Silks, pottery, weaponry, and gold have all made an appearance as some of the numerous salvaged items from shipwrecks, but one of the most surprising and unique finds that rises from the depths is wine. Shipwrecked Wines The idea of a message in a bottle is ubiquitous to us, a way of linking disparate people...

Is Organic Chicken Really Better for You?

Is Organic Chicken Really Better for You?

Desire your protein without the pesticides? Not certain if it absolutely makes a variation? Here’s some expert info on the organic bird. The organic label ensures certain standards: Organic-chicken farmers are constitutionally banned from applying sewage sludge as manure, artificial chemicals not authorized by the National Organic Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — any plant, animal, or microorganism that has been changed through genetic engineering — in the composition method. Chickens labeled as “natural,” on another hand, don’t significantly engage those standards. Purchasing organic may help stop the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria: When you crowd chickens mutually inside, the way conventional producers do, they’re more likely to generate infectious bacteria, which is why non-organic chickens are fed antibiotics as a norm. But this creates drug-resistant strains of bacteria. These bacteria are commonly destroyed by the flame of cooking, but they can be sprayed by people who operate with the birds. “USDA Organic” chickens, on the additional hand, are granted entrance to the outdoors; they are provided antibiotics only to stop pain or death, after which they are no extended recognized organic. Organic is healthier: One research found that organic chicken carried 38% more...

Seared Lamb with a Strawberry-Herb Vinaigrette

Seared Lamb with a Strawberry-Herb Vinaigrette

Every season is marked by its produce. In the summer, peaches and tomatoes. In fall, apples and squash. Winter, roots and citrus. But spring’s range is truly something to behold. The early crops still taste of colder weather, hearty and fresh. The fruits and veggies that appear at the end of the season make June memorable: bundles of brilliant rhubarb, gardens filled with fresh herbs, and of course fields of strawberries! Here in Western Massachusetts, this bounty appears overnight and is gone just as fast. Capturing the warmth and brightness of late spring is best done in a dish. This recipe plays to the season’s strengths, combining lush, fresh fruits with succulent lamb chops — a tribute to new growth and the coming summer. The formula of a fruit vinaigrette and red meat can also be applied broadly, using whatever is in season and a little vinegar to bring out complex flavors from richer cuts of meat. But here and now, we use it to toast warmer days ahead! 3 lamb rib chops 3 lamb loin chops ½ cup rosemary, freshly chopped (plus 2 additional sprigs) ¾ cup parsley, finely chopped 1 tbsp thyme leaves ½ cup olive oil ¾ cup...

Finding Home

Finding Home

I moved to Canada about 2 years ago. The world around and within me changed. Now, this realization wasn’t instantaneous. Definitely not the very moment I stepped my feet on this land. This realization came in moments big and small, bright and dull and through landscapes and people, culture and food. So, while I embraced the newness of this country, and my life in it, there were moments when I missed home. The feeling of it. Still do. I grew up with my Aunt around. She was pursuing her masters in food & nutrition while I was growing up. The days she had her exams and practicals, were specifically the happiest days for me. Because there would be recipes invented, food shared and I got to be the guinea pig by being her taster. The joy that I got being the first one to taste a dish created for the very first time ?on this planet? was unmatched. I as a little girl sort of took pride in it. It was like my little power that most of my friends didn’t have. There was this particular evening when my Aunt was preparing for her exam the next day and she baked...

Sober People Want To Go To Breweries Too

Sober People Want To Go To Breweries Too

American craft breweries can avoid cannibalizing their line offerings by inviting non-alcoholic options into their taprooms. Designed by RICKiRICKi I’ve been sober for more than 2 ½ years. That means more than 2 ½ years of toasting champagne flutes of water at weddings, cheersing highballs of iced tea after work, and 2 ½ years of new cavities carved from the 5 Ginger Ales I’ve been having each night out. “Lime wedge please,” I tell bartenders so the drink resembles my ex: Whiskey Ginger. “At least music venues are starting to have better options”, I lie to myself as I approach a bar selling $6 bottles of water and $8 Red Bulls. “Sheesh, did they not hear what Shannon Herber, Genre Manager at The Recording Academy, said at SXSW this year?” That’s been my overall experience in the last quarter decade. An experience I’m not alone in. Beccy Rigden, one of the sober-identifying individuals interviewed for this piece, shared a parallel experience. “I was on a work-sponsored event to a New Hampshire Brewery, and when I asked about non-alcoholic options I was given a tiny plastic cup to get water from the bathroom tap. I was devastated”. To be fair though, Beccy...

The Great Tragedy

The Great Tragedy

The day was warm as the sun shined so brightly down upon us. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore rung in my ear. Peace. As I looked around the beach I saw beauty and joy. Children laughed as they ran into the water, only to immediately run back to shore. I laid next to my best friend, the person who truly gave me the most joy in life. Her and I sat at our little piece of paradise, unaware of the horrors that crept ever closer to us. We shared a blanket, since I once again had forgotten to bring one of my own. Among our encampment was a cooler filled with waters, a pink cardboard box that contained delectable cupcakes from our favorite cupcake shop, and our true treasure; a Target bag that contained four breakfast sliders. These sliders were made with scrambled eggs, sautéed onion, grilled chicken, bacon, and gouda cheese on a pretzel roll. The sliders were savory and complex, each ingredient came together in a harmonious orchestra of flavor; each bite bringing together the complexity of gouda with the salty and crunchy bacon; chicken which helped the sandwich feel hearty, and perfectly cooked scrambled...

Nazi or a Joke? Offended or Publicity Stunt? Two Little Caesars Employees Fired After Customer…

Nazi or a Joke? Offended or Publicity Stunt? Two Little Caesars Employees Fired After Customer…

Two employees in a Brook Park, Ohio Little Caesars pizza station were recently fired after creatively, yet offensively preparing a customer’s pepperoni “ready made” pizza. They positioned 25 pepperonis to form the once divine and spiritual symbol in Indian religion, which Hitler stole in 1920 and changed its colors, and ruined it’s meaning to one that insultingly, yet intensely haunts the world even until today… Not only did the Nazis slaughter the Jews, but also the Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, blacks, the disabled, political opponents of the Nazis, the list goes on and on. The Hitler dictatorship rule over Germany from 1933–1945, carried out a brutal plan to kill all of the Jews, which gave the Swastika symbol a meaning of racism, hate, bigotry and murder, a representation of the horrors of what America is going through today, with the extensively and targeted cold blooded police murders of innocent black Americans. Why Didn’t these Customers Check Their Pizza Before Leaving the Store? Ad: Spend less. Smile more. Save on Health, Household & Personal Care Ok, back to the point of this article. After realizing (when making it to their home) that their pepperoni pizza was marked by a racist symbol, they...

How much time have you spent trying different fad diets, figuring out your ideal carb-to-protein ratio, and ‘googling’ the calories you’ve consumed with every snack? We’re guessing a lot. The truth is though, in that quest for the ‘perfect’ diet, we forget that for most of us, eating is largely an emotional decision. We tend to decide on our next meal based on how we’re feeling, which makes it hard to stick to our health goals. What adds to this conundrum is the plethora of posts, articles, and forwards we’re exposed to daily, each claiming how certain foods can boost immunity, improve overall health, or help us shed those extra pounds. On running a more detailed search, you might then find information that is contrary to something you read just five minutes ago! One health expert advocates X for weight loss, while another pushes Y. Given these inconsistencies, perhaps the best way to understand what’s good for you is to take an evolutionary perspective of the human diet, and use it to fill in the gaps in our current food choices. That being said, the intention of this article is not to recommend any particular kind of diet, but to provide...

A Simple Hack for Eating Large Cupcakes

You’ll never eat a cupcake the same way again… The idea of creating miniature cakes as a dessert is thought to have originated in 1796, when Amelia Simmons wrote about them in American Cookery. The idea came to fruition in 1828 when Eliza Leslie published the first recipe for a tiny cake one could bake in a tea cup. With a thin layer of sweet frosting or jam on top the tiny cake, the new dessert could be enjoyed in a few bites with little mess. Cupcakes rapidly became a sensation. Image by Blandine JOANNIC from Pixabay Today, that thin layer of icing has grown exponentially into mountainous swirls atop the surface of the cupcake. While extra frosting is always welcome, these mile-high cupcakes are nearly impossible to eat because their height exceeds the girth of the average mouth. In addition, the frosting-to-cake ratio is often inconsistent from bite to bite, decreasing the pleasure of the overall experience. There have also been alarming reports of accidental frosting loss as the consumer’s nose is liable to push it off the cupcake surface. This creates a precarious situation in which the frosting is likely to succumb to the forces of gravity and fall...
