Here is one of my favorites - the Brown Derby's Cobb Salad Recipe
If you are reading this, you probably are a salad fan or a restaurant recipe hunter. I welcome you to this sneak peak of delicious recipes. This is one of my favorites - the Brown Derby's Cobb Salad Recipe.
There have been many stories about how the Cobb Salad came into existence, but here's a brief story about this from the owners of the Brown Derby Restaurant.
One evening in 1937, the owner Bob Cobb who was hungry went through the restaurant's kitchen, looking for a snack for him and his friend Sid Grauman. What came out of it was this salad. Sid thought it was so good, he suggested that Bob add it to the menu.
New York State has six areas that currently define its wine country
The Yankees (not my personal team to root for) are in the 2010 baseball post season again. They are representing a city of nearly 8.5 million people, about 27,900 humans per square mile. Contrast New York City's population with that of Los Angles (nearing 4.0 million) or Chicago (nearing 3.0 million). Ironically, New York State's population is ranked only third most among U.S. states. Still the state would seem to be nothing but a "sea of people". New York State actually consists of a lot of rolling countryside dissected by many river valleys with elevations ranging from sea-level to Mt. Marcy at 5,344 feet. This countryside, I came to find out, has several areas where vineyards and wineries flourish.
Blending has become some a popular concept
Blending has become a highly respected part of the process of winemaking. Many winemakers in fact view blending as a highly evolved art form. The basic idea of blending is to mix different wines in order to create a final wine that possesses a quality that is superior to that of each of the different components singularly.
The most common type of blending involves blending at least two different grape varieties of wine. Blending has become some a popular concept that many winemakers specifically plant their vineyards for the purpose of blending by growing a variety of different grapes in order to create a blended field. Another way of achieving blending is to combine at least two different varieties of grapes that have been harvested separately but then ferment them together. This process commonly involves at least one red grape and one white grape.
Korea's traditional food culture
As more people begin to turn toward healthier eating, kimchi has been growing in popularity the world over. Because of such increasing demand, this article will focus on ten popular Korean dishes.
Korea's traditional dishes include kimchi, bibimbap, traditional royal Korean dishes, galbi, bulgogi, samgyeopsal, samgyetang, naengmyeon, seafood and tteokbokki.
Undoubtedly, one of the most recognizable images of Korea would have to be kimchi. A fermented dish that is always served at every Korean table, kimchi is a health food that is quickly gaining worldwide popularity. Made with spicy red peppers, there are a surprising number of kimchi varieties available. There are also many dishes made with kimchi such as kimchijjigae,kimchijeon, and kimchibokkeum, to name just a few.
Surprisingly varied traditional Scottish food and drink
Despite its reputation for requiring a certain dash of bravery from its consumers, Scottish food is surprisingly varied.
Yes, you will find the wonderfully controversial 'haggis' on every Scottish menu (and in most chip-shops for that matter) but when it comes to Scottish food, haggis is merely the tip of the iceberg.
Scottish chefs typically combine a variety of seafood and Scottish meat produce such as Aberdeen Angus beef with a number of delicious local vegetables. Fruit is often used to create sauces, purees and sorbets to compliment these largely meat-based meals. Scottish cheese, especially goat's cheese is also a regular feature on Scottish menus.
