Yorkshire Pudding Recipes from the Past

The history of the Yorkshire pudding is shrouded in mystery, the national dish of Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings is recognized across the world but its origins are virtually unknown. The origin of the Yorkshire pudding is, as yet, unknown. There are no cave drawings, hieroglyphics and so far, no-one has unearthed a Roman Yorkshire pudding dish buried beneath the streets of York. The puddings may have been brought to these shores by any of the invading armies across the centuries but unfortunately any evidence of this has yet to be discovered. The first ever recorded recipe appears in a book, The Whole Duty of a Woman in 1737 and listed as A Dripping Pudding - the dripping coming from spit-roast meat. 'Make a good batter as for pancakes ; put in a hot toss-pan over the fire with a bit of butter to fry the bottom a little then put the pan and butter under a shoulder of mutton , instead of a dripping pan, keeping frequently shaking it by the handle and it will be light

Can you afford a Personal Chef?

Take into consideration how much you currently spend on restaurant meals, prepared foods from the grocery store, and the groceri es you bought intending to cook that end up in the trash. Now factor in the amount of time you spend planning meals, rushing around after a tough day at work trying to throw one together, and scrubbing those pots and pans that formed a nice crust while you were eating and at soccer practice. We shop - a lot, so we know how to get the most for your grocery dollars. Some of our clients even feel in the long run they are saving money by having a personal chef because they aren't throwing away ingredients they never got around to preparing, plus they don't have to resort to unhealthy, expensive carry-out meals when there isn't a meal planned. private chefs and event catering Miami + Miami Beach + Fort Lauderdale + Palm Beach | 954-367-YADA (9232) fort lauderdale catering and personal chefs

Chicken Soup Recipe An Old Wives Tale?

Souper  broth  An old wives' tale? No!  C hicken   soup  really CAN fight a cold, say scientists.  Chicken soup is good for the soul, they say.

According to the latest scientific study, the answer is yes. Research in the American Journal of Therapeutics showed that a compound found in chicken soup – carnosine – helped the body’s immune system to fight the early stages of flu.  The authors warned this benefit ended as soon as the soup was excreted by the body, so that means you may need to have a fairly constant supply. The study wasn’t the first to look at this. More than a decade ago, Dr Stephen Rennard, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, wanted to find out why his wife’s recipe for chicken soup, handed down through generations, was so healing.
