The Doors Re-imagined by Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel
(Deep Disco Rework)
In an era of re-edits and re-works Juan & Jorge take the timeless
"The Doors" classic "Riders On The Storm"
far down the road of Indie Dance and deep experimental Disco vibes, crossing into a darker electronic dimension while still keeping a firm grid on the Jazz/Funk sounds that have always characterize the work of the production duo through the time.

With all due respect to the original version and composers.

The Girl from Ipanema I Watch Her So Sadly, Frank 2016 Style
Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah

When she walks, she's like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gentle

That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh

(Ooh) But I watch her so sadly, how can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly

But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking

And when she passes, I smile - but she doesn't see (doesn't see)
(She just doesn't see, she never sees me,...)

Go salty for Uncle Sam The origins of our grapefruit habit

Go salty for Uncle Sam The origins of our grapefruit habit
Grapefruits are relatively new to this earth,
a hybrid formed from the spontaneous union of two foreign transplants — the Javanese pumelo and the East Asian sweet orange — in Barbados in the middle of the 18th century.
First grown commercially in Florida at the end of the 19th century, grapefruit quickly went from being a novelty to being a daily necessity and made fortunes for farmers.

90s Leftfield were untouchable live and on record. Their debut Leftism, remains one of the defining statements of 90s dance music, a gloriously inter-woven bombardment of musical styles and immaculate grooves

The 90s were all but over when the second Leftfield album appeared in Autumn 1999. Rhythm And Stealth worked with a darker hue and more pronounced techno influence, guests including Roots Manuva, MC Cheshire Cat and Afrika Bambaataa on first single Afrika Shox, which reached the UK top ten.

The album - like its predecessor - would be nominated for a Mercury prize while one of its tracks, Phat Planet, soundtracked the award-winning ‘Surfer’ advert for Guinness.

Now solely led by Neil Barnes, Leftfield prepare to release their third album ‘Alternative Light Source’ on Infectious Music.

It is like they learnt nothing from Brexit, painting people as stupid racists as if, that is, the entire sum, of all parts of [all] people credit Pádraig Ó Raghaill keep on #SpiritCooking ;)

It is all the great unwashed, the uneducated, the racist, the hoi polloi

Just like Brexit, the scapegoat is [the people] all the people that cannot buy a house, cannot put their children through university, the stupid, uneducated, misfits of society. And that [is] the narrative that sees Trump in the Whitehouse. As that [is not] the sum of all parts of all people. However it sounds good to the people that cannot see past their green grass, maybe it is them that [is] smoking grass. As we reload Brexit 2.0 will the [essentialism] class wake up and smell the rotting roses or will they continue to ignore what is giving them a bloodied nose?

Trumps Hangover: Everyone has a headache

America’s Brexit they are calling it, another manifestation of Islamophobia, and xenophobia. Far right nationalism that has seen the uprising of the people’s demagogue of the great unwashed. America indeed has reached the end of the evolutionary path; it is all downhill from here. It is like they learnt nothing from Brexit, painting people as stupid racists as if, that is, the entire sum, of all parts of [all] people.

How did this happen?

Similar to Brexit people all over are trying to dismiss what does not sit well with their belief. Alexander Betts, a social scientist, sought to explain Brexit from his perspective. It was with some shaking of my head, that he too failed miserably, to encapsulate the reasoning behind the exit. Citing too often globalisation as a singular subject and even some audacity to bring education into the fray. Globalisation is an umbrella; it is not merely an open and accepting people, versus a closed minded, nationalism inspired, poorly educated swath of individuals. A social scientist should understand better than that.

Studio 54 circa 1977 just in time to jump on a white horse with Bianca Jagger;

Studio 54 circa 1977 just in time to jump on a white horse with Bianca Jagger;
or instead to wind the clock back to early September 2016 and visit a field close to our hearts.

Luckily for us, the wonderful Greg Wilson has taken the sting out of the decision by having had the foresight to record his FM16 Sunday afternoon set, so we can all relive that magic moment again right now. And worry about the white horse for another day.

Greg Wilson is a man who needs little introduction.
After 40 years of DJing, his musical knowledge and ability to read a dancefloor is quasi-cosmic

After witnessing the mobile discos playing at wedding parties in his family run pub, he purchased his first pair of decks aged 15.

He was an early champion of funk, soul and disco and was famed for playing the latest imports at Wigan Pier and Manchester's Legend.

His hunger for cutting-edge sounds led to him being credited as one of the key DJs breaking NYC's electro-funk and post-disco on this side of the pond.

And an early-adopter of turntable mixing, by 1983 he had a residency at the infamous Hacienda, AKA the spot where the breakdancing crew he later went on to manage, Broken Glass, appeared on legendary TV show The Tube during the UKs first televised performance of Madonna.

He's now widely hailed as the king of the re-edit, taking firm favourites and transforming them into hypnotic disco versions.

We've regularly found ourselves lost in Greg's festival sets and at last, our dream to have Greg join us at FM came true this year.

He set up his Revox Reel-to-Reel on our outdoor stage on the Sunday afternoon.
As he worked his magic, the dancing only paused briefly, as in impromptu 250 strong FM fam photo was taken, before his spell-binding set finished with everyone singing along to Bowie's Space Oddity.

A truly magical moment. Greg Wilson, hail Eris, we salute you!

Proofing the Bread
Also called proving or more rarely blooming.
The process of making yeast-leavened bread involves a series of alternating work and rest periods.
Heat by a Rocket stove mass heater at #TangleHa  

Is the final dough-rise step before baking, and refers to a specific rest period within the more generalized process known as fermentation.
Fermentation is a step in creating yeast breads and baked goods where the yeast is allowed to leaven the dough.

Fermentation rest periods are not often explicitly named, and normally appear in recipes as "Allow dough to rise."

Overproofing occurs when a fermenting dough has rested too long. Its bubbles have grown so large that they have popped and tunneled, and dough baked at this point would result in a bread with poor structure.
Length of rest periods, including proofing, can be determined by time at specific temperatures or by characteristics.
Often the poke method is used to determine if a dough has risen long enough.
If the dough, when poked, springs back immediately it is underproofed and needs more time.

Retarding may occur at any time during fermentation and is accomplished by placing the dough into a dough retarder, refrigerator, or other cold environment to slow the activity of the yeast.

The retarding stage is often used in sourdough bread recipes to allow the bread to develop its characteristic flavor.
A cold fermentation stage is sometimes used to develop flavor in other artisan breads, with a part of the dough ("pre-ferment") before the final mixing, with the entire dough during bulk fermentation, or in the final fermentation stages after shaping.

Nth Degree Burger from Azlin Bloor ??? maybe
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."

What is hyssop?

Hyssop is a common herb which grew in Bible times and still grows extensively today in many varieties all over the world.
It's possible you have seen it in a garden near you.
Common varieties grow to about two feet tall and spread about a foot.

It has beautiful purple blue flowers and a strong mint smell. If you have ever seen or grown catmint, hyssop looks somewhat similar.

In "the old days" - before grocery store shelves were lined with cleaning products for every conceivable need, people used nature's products.

Hyssop was readily available, especially in the Middle East. Because it had detergent properties, it was widely used to clean sacred places such as temples.

Here are some times it was used in the Bible:

A bunch of hyssop was used to dip in the basin of blood of the Passover lamb to apply to the lintel and doorpost before the Israelites left Egypt. (Exodus 12:22) Since hyssop has strong woody stalks it could stand up to being shaken.

Cleansing ceremony for a leper in Leviticus 14:1-8. Again, hyssop was the dipping agent into blood of a bird and used to sprinkle over the unclean person.

In John 19:29, it was used at the crucifixion. "Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth."

The Ultimate Burger, with a Middle Eastern Flavour

What is your idea of the ultimate burger? Should the swagger be in the burger patty or do you think it’s the extras that should do the talking?

Me? I’m definitely in the second camp! Now don’t get me wrong, I would still like some flavour in the meat as a starting point, but that’s all it would be, a starting point, the groundwork, so to speak. Then, we build on this foundation with multiple layers of aroma, taste and texture. Just take a look at the image above and you’ll see what I’m talking about. What goes on and around the meat is what turns the plain old burger into The Ultimate Burger!

My secret ingredient here, well, ingredients in the plural, are those green and white sauces you see in the picture, 2 staples in our home: Zhoug, the Yemeni Green Chilli Sauce and Za’atar Yoghurt. Both recipe links are given on the blog, but for now, let's get cooking!

****************************************

Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes
Serving Size: 4

Ingredients

Burger
500g/just over 1 lb minced beef (20% fat)
1 medium onion
1 small handful flat leaf parsley (curly is fine too)
1 large clove garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
half tsp sumac (or a 1 tsp lemon juice)
half tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper

Everything else
4 burger buns of your choice
enough lettuce leaves for 4 buns
2 medium tomatoes
1 medium red onion
2-4 tbsp Zhug, to taste (it's hot!)
4 tbsp za'atar yoghurt
4 cheese slices, Cheddar is great
enough olive oil to cook

Instructions

1. Quarter the onion and place it in a chopper.

2. Add the garlic and parsley and chop it to a fine blend, with no water added.

3. Now place all the burger ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands.

4. Form into 4 burger patties and place in the fridge while you get the vegetables ready.

5. Slice the tomatoes into rounds.

6. Slice the onions into rings.

7. Cook the burgers the way you want to, on the barbecue, under the grill (broiler) or on the stove top.

On the barbecue or under the grill

Lightly oil the top and bottom of the burger and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side for medium, 3-4 for well done.

On the stove top

1. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat.

2. Cook the burgers for about 2-3 minutes on each side for medium, 3-4 for well done.

Serving

The burger can be packed in any order you like.
My way: lettuce, onion rings, tomatoes, burger, zhug, za'atar yoghurt, cheese.

Oyster Eating
"Australopithecus, one of our ancient pre-human ancestors, ate oysters.
A shoreline diet of nutrient-rich oysters and other shellfish was one of the most significant opportunities in history that allowed our cranially challenged ancestors to grow big, juicy brains.

It wasn’t man who ate the first oyster; it was oysters that caused Australopithecus to become man.
As we climbed the evolutionary ladder, we brought the oyster along with us.
All over the planet, archaeologists have discovered man-made middens, massive garbage dumps heaped with thousands of oyster shells, which have been well-preserved thanks to the alkaline properties of oysters.
Careful excavation offers clues to the past in food scraps, human waste and other nifty tidbits.
More importantly, it shows we came up as social, nomadic creatures who liked to eat lots of oysters at big get-togethers.

As our nomadic social ancestors settled into a civilized society, they built up walls and we became enclosed like oysters.

The trouble with landlocking ourselves too far inland is that we cut out iodine-rich shellfish.
This caused iodine deficiency, resulting in fatigue and preventable mental retardation.
Today, many countries are legally obligated to add iodine to table salt to avoid the serious consequences of iodine deficiency.

It took some serious adapting to make civilizations work.
The clever inland civilizations made thoughtful efforts to acquire shellfish.
The Romans farmed oysters in the Mediterranean.
But they really made the grade when hydraulic engineer Sergius Orata figured out how to transport live oysters from the abundant coasts of Britain and France."

Swallow or Chew ? 
The myth is that true connoisseurs don't chew oysters – they tip them straight down their throats.
I suspect this one was made up to help oyster virgins get the whole experience over with as quickly as possible because, as well as breaking food down, chewing helps us to appreciate its flavour more fully.
Swallowing oysters whole, therefore, is surely akin to dousing them in Tabasco – it means you don't have to taste them.

The swallow-only camp, however, argues that oysters are a sensual experience that's more about the 'mouthfeel' than flavour

Swallow or chew ?

My Queen of the Pome Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was known to consider apples sacred.


My Queen of the Pome Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was known to consider apples sacred.
Historians believe the apple favored by Aphdrodite were really quince.

The legendary golden apple of Hesperides that Paris gave to Aphrodite was really a quince.

In Medieval times, Europeans thought quinces aided the digestion and prepared them frequently along with meats.
The English called the combination chardeqynce meaning flesh of quince.

Originally shared by Jon “the chef” Hole

Now in Season My Queen of the Pome (after the Latin word for fruit: pōmum) is a type of fruit produced by flowering plants in the family of Rosaceae. (which also contains apples and pears, among other fruits)

Throughout history the cooked fruit has been used as food, but the tree is also grown for its attractive pale pink blossoms and other ornamental qualities.

The fruit was known to the Akkadians, who called it supurgillu;The modern name originated in the 14th century as a plural of quoyn, via Old French cooin from Latin cotoneum malum / cydonium malum, ultimately from Greek κυδώνιον μῆλον, kydonion melon "Kydonian apple".

I am sure all you Foodies know what it is ;)

At the Digital Death Day
Aleks Krotoski  meets with Vered Shavit from Israel who having dealt with her late brother's digital legacy set up a website called Digital Dust to help others going through the same experience.

Hearing Vered's story Alek's asks how are we using the web to adapt the rituals that we have used for centuries to help us transition between the living and the dead?

Aleks discovers that since Vered's brother's death people continue to communicate with him through his Facebook profile. Dr Elaine Kasket a Counselling Psychologist who practices psychotherapy with the bereaved likens Facebook to a modern day medium. She also explains how Facebook is enabling people to continue bonds with the deceased.

The distinction between our physical selves and mental states is a philosophical construction, but it signifies a line in the sand between those who believe our bodies make us human and those who define humanity by our thoughts and social lives.

As the Roman Empire grew, it started having issues with servicing the Empire. A fractured economy, local trade suffered, and they constantly needed to expand in search of more resources thus as they grew so did their need for yet more resources. Another issue they had was securing enough silver to make their coins. Over time, the percentage of silver used decreased. In reality, their value declined, the losers were often the poor, a transference of wealth to the ‘elite.’ Running out of resources they inflicted even harsher taxation, they tried new trade agreements. However, their currency was basically, worthless and this dissolved much of their trade. Eventually, the Empire split into separate states and thus the Barbarians came, they saw, they plundered.

Sound familiar to today?

Now, of course, we also know that the European economy has also gone to shit in a handbag. The GFC, that wonderful credit bubble of bank-busting, economy debilitating, crap stain, that continued to leave skid marks, that could only ‘fixed’ with ‘austerity politics.’ The same austerity measures and ‘bailouts,’ that have continued to bankrupt countries. Instead of letting the banks go bust and with them some of the same bond holders, that caused the fuckery in the first place. String pullers thought stuff that, let the people pay for our mistakes. Now we have a humanitarian crisis on our doorstep, dictators that just ‘had to go, “we came, we saw’ he died (laughing),” reduced to words of “skittles.”

So here we are in 2016 with a whole new level of financial fuckery on the horizon. America is living in one big bubble, while bleeding their economy dry, with never ending hegemony pursuits.
American Hypocrisy
Delivering democracy to your shore

Before we look at Russia in the continued outdated lens of the Evil Bear, we first should draw a contextual box around America. While America can have an Oligarchy and a twisted version of Nationalistic Fascism, for its political foundations. Russia must be viewed as the ‘Evil Bear.’ Even though America has more children in poverty than any other developed nation and even though, it has more people in gaol than any other country; it is somehow the world standard of a progressive country. Despite the fact, it has bombed 21 countries and the last decade has managed to destabilise much of the world.

The way America speaks about Russia, you would think that is a list of countries they bombed or destabilised, toppling leaders and bringing their version of democracy to their shores. It is not even an inclusive list; it is only the list that can be proven. Over 4 million civilians dead so far in the Middle East by the wars of America – Supporting war against ethnic minorities in the Ukraine – Now aiding the bombing of Yemen along with the UK – Trying to bully China 6000 miles away from their land with Obamas ‘Pivot to Asia.’ Continues to finance and arm Islamic extremist groups in Syria, which in turn, are terrorising our countries.

I have peppered this article with a great number of pieces specific to Syria. There is not a voice here and there that are saying mainstream media are painting an incorrect and biased image of the war; it is a growing army of voices. These views include doctors, journalists, everyday Syrian people, analysts, people that have been to Syria just to understand the conflict better even the UN-backed, World Peace Council. With America trying to escalate the tensions with Russia for fighting terrorism in Syria, the only invited country in the conflict. America and allies are yet again, attacking a sovereign state, in breach of International law. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and now Syria, how many more countries need to be destroyed for no more than arms sales, gas, oil, and pipelines

Since the War on Terror began we can roughly say over 2 million civilians have died. If we venture back to the first conflicts in the 90’s that blows out to over 4 million people. That is the conservative figure, 6-8 million is likely closer to the truth, however, too difficult to prove. While I have met a good number of American people that share my despise for the American war machine, I have encountered too many that do not. What is even more depressing is the ownership of egotism. A wholehearted belief in the ‘American Way.’ Would you not think that, at this stage, some ownership would be progressive, in relation to, the understanding that the American Foreign Policy, is morally bankrupt.

There are over 1400 U.S bases around the world; it is the key factor in how the U.S Empire, gains more territory. Apart from bases, there are also the Embassies, unlike the everyday embassy these are also leverage points, a virtual sales office for economic globalisation. TTIP, TPP, and the backdoor to same the CETA trade agreements not only circumvent local policy, bankrupt local business, they also help fracture entire local economies.

The war in Syria has stretched for five long years, and who knows, if the U.S and Allies had not continually refreshed Jihadists, sorry, ‘Moderate Rebels,’ it would possibly have been over many moons ago. The hypocrisy of the US war machine knows no bounds. While Yemen is bombed into the ground, by US and UK hardware. Russia is branded the worst kind of terror, with trying to bring an end to terrorism in Syria by Jihadists, sorry, ‘Moderate Rebels.’

Of course, we know Russia has a MIMIC (Military Industrial Media- Academic Complex) “Propaganda Machin,” but so too, America. We could also say it stretches to all mainstream media outlets, worldwide. Not only that, but it is also pushing the boundaries of Russia’s patience with excessive Sabre rattling. While I do not want to rehash the Crimean fiasco, it was instigated by America giving Russia no choice after playing politics in the Ukraine. > Read more >>>

Super Weird Substance The Super Weird Sunset in the morning set the tone perfectly with well-being and good vibes music as the artists also set up for the day.
Playwright Daisy Eris Campbell ('Cosmic Trigger')and author John Higgs Stranger Than We Can Imagine: Making Sense Of The Twentieth Century
and
The KLF: Chaos, Magic And The Band Who Burned A Million Pounds fascinated us during the talks, before Stella Grundy powerfully performed a section of her one-woman production 'The Rise And Fall Of A Northern Star', whilst poet JB Barrington well and truly put a smile on our faces with his Salford wit and acute observation.

Then it was Howard Marks.
The warmth towards him was something else, the area packed to capacity with queueing around the corner the entrance to the Estuary Stage.
A true countercultural icon of our times - the respect was tangible.

A potent line-up of DJ's followed

Blind Arcade and the Super Weird Society hit the ball out of the court big style - a phenomenal first appearance complete with live musicians.
Huge thanks to Black Grape's backing band, who Kermit had hijacked for the event.

Then I was on for the finale, and what a climax it turned out to be.
The stage was invaded at the end and when I looked to my side, appearing next to me, in a puff of smoke it seemed, was Back To Basics main man and UK club legend Dave Beer, who turned to me,
amidst the wonderful chaos of the moment and exclaimed '
this is seminal

Deep Web - Kinetic audiovisual installation and performance

Deep Web - Kinetic audiovisual installation and performance
Deep Web is a monumental immersive audiovisual installation and live performance created by light artist Christopher Bauder and composer and musician Robert Henke.

Presented in enormous pitch dark indoor spaces, Deep Web plunges the audience into a ballet of iridescent kinetic light and surround sound.

The generative, luminous architectural structure weaves 175 motorized spheres and 12 high power laser systems into a 25 meter wide and 10 meter high super-structure, bringing to life a luminous analogy to the nodes and connections of digital networks.

Moving up and down, and choreographed and synchronized to an original multi-channel musical score by Robert Henke, the spheres are illuminated by blasts of colorful laser beams resulting in three-dimensional sculptural light drawings and arrangements in cavernous darkness.

Coffee Time What does your coffee say about you ?

Coffee Time What does your coffee say about you ?
Coffee is the world’s second most traded commodity, with oil taking first place
When was the last time you heard someone say the coffee at their hotel tasted good?
Likely never.
Hotel chains typically buy cheap coffee, mainly because it is inexpensive, and they don’t see it as the luxury commodity that it is.

The majority of hotels purchase off-branded coffee that is usually close to its expiration date, meaning it was sitting a warehouse for a long time and was sold at auction for an extremely cheap price just to make room in the warehouse.
Even the brewed coffee that is served with breakfast is usually bitter and tasteless, or even stale.

Offering a great cup of coffee is nothing short of attention to detail, which will be appreciated in a very positive way.

Blackberrys the Fruit of the Fairy World


Blackberrys the Fruit of the Fairy World

Originally shared by Jon “the chef” Hole

Blackberries abundantly in Season (U.K.) The berries themselves are feminine in nature and ruled by the element of earth.
They represent an abundant harvest and can be used in spells and magical cooking for prosperity.

Blackberries were considered protective against earthbound spirits and vampires.
If planted near a home, a vampire couldn't enter because he would obsessively count the berries and forget what he was about.

When mature, the berries are eaten and their seeds dispersed by several mammals, such as the red fox and the Eurasian badger, as well as by small birds.

Blackberry fruit are red before they are ripe, leading to an old expression that "blackberries are red when they're green".

Not to be eaten after Samhain because the Púca spits on them and they become inedible (in some parts of Ireland they believe that the Púca urinates on them).
The Púca is an Irish spirit (one of the fairy folk).

An arch of bramble which had rooted at both ends was believed to have special powers and if you wished to invoke evil spirits you could do so by crawling through the arch at Samhain while making your wish.

Could also be used to cure, for example, a child with whooping cough could be cured by passing it under the arch three times before breakfast for nine consecutive days while saying “in bramble, out cough, here I leave the whooping cough.

In Ireland if you found a piece of bramble attached to a cows tail at Beltainne it was considered suspicious as it meant someone was trying to put a spell on the milk.

Medical uses include using the leaves in a cure for diarrhoea in both cattle and people; it could cure dropsy and was considered to have fantastic curative powers for coughs and colds.

It was also used for a variety of skin complaints such as scalds, burns,
boils, shingles and spots.

Pomegranate The pomegranate originated in the region of modern-day Iran and has been cultivated since ancient times...

Pomegranate The pomegranate originated in the region of modern-day Iran and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region and northern India.
It was introduced into Spanish America in the late 16th century and California by Spanish settlers in 1769.

The French term for pomegranate, grenade, has given its name to the military grenade.

A large, dry pomegranate was found in the tomb of Djehuty, the butler of Queen Hatshepsut in Egypt

Pomegranate seeds are used as a spice known as anardana (from Persian: anar + dana‎‎, pomegranate + seed), most notably in Indian and Pakistani cuisine.
Dried whole seeds can often be obtained in ethnic Indian subcontinent markets.
These seeds are separated from the flesh, dried for 10–15 days, and used as an acidic agent for chutney and curry preparation.
Ground anardana is also used, which results in a deeper flavoring in dishes and prevents the seeds from getting stuck in teeth.

Ancient Egyptians regarded the pomegranate as a symbol of prosperity and ambition.
According to the Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical writings from around 1500 BC, Egyptians used the pomegranate for treatment of tapeworm and other infections.

In some Hindu traditions, the pomegranate (Hindi: anār) symbolizes prosperity and fertility, and is associated with both Bhoomidevi (the earth goddess) and Lord Ganesha (the one fond of the many-seeded fruit).

The Tamil name maadulampazham is a metaphor for a woman's mind.
It is derived from, maadhu=woman, ullam=mind, which means as the seeds are hidden, it is not easy to decipher a woman's mind.

A Wow Potatoe Dish from PIYALI SEKHAR MUTHA /My Tryst With Food And Travel


A Wow Potatoe Dish from PIYALI SEKHAR MUTHA /My Tryst With Food And Travel
Just do It #Potatoe

Originally shared by PIYALI SEKHAR MUTHA /My Tryst With Food And Travel

Bhapa Aloo or Steamed Potatoes in Mustard Coconut Sauce ~

In this dish mustard seeds, green chillies and coconut are ground together into a paste and the potatoes are coated with this paste and steamed in Banana leaves. The quintessential Bengali Panch Phoron finds its way into this gravy to enhance the enigmatic aroma. A very simple recipe Bhapa Aloo involves very little cooking yet is a food connoisseurs delight.

SERVES ~ 4

INGREDIENTS ~

1) 12 ~ 16 Baby Potatoes
2) 1/2 Tbsp Mustard Oil
3) 1 ~ 1 1/2 Tbsp Mustard Seeds
4) 1 ~ 1 1/2 Tbsp Grated Coconut fresh or Frozen
5) 2 ~3 Green Chillies
6) 1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
7) 1/2 Tsp Salt
8) 2 ~ 4 Tbsp Water for grinding
9) Additional 1 Tsp Turmeric and 1 Tsp Salt required during Par Boiling of Potatoes
10) 1Tbsp (Thick / Hung) Yogurt / Curd
11) 1/2 Tsp Lime Juice
12) 2 Banana Leaves
13) Salt for seasoning

FOR TEMPERING ~

1) 1 ~ 1 1/2 Tbsp Mustard Oil
2) 2~3 Dry Red Chillies
3) 1 Tsp Panch Phoron

COOK WITH ME IN EASY STEPS ~
1) Wash the Potatoes thoroughly.
Peel the potatoes. Keep a bowl full of water ready so that you can put the peeled potatoes in that bowl to avoid them from browning.

2) Once all the potatoes are peeled, drain out the water and transfer the potatoes into a pressure cooker or deep pan. Cover the potatoes with water. Add salt and turmeric. Cook till potatoes are partly boiled.

3) While the potatoes are cooking, soak the mustard seeds in water for 10 minutes. Grate the coconut if you are using fresh coconut.
After 10 minutes of soaking, drain the mustard seeds using a strainer and transfer to a grinder jar. To this add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp turmeric, green chillies and grated coconut. Using 1 Tbsp water at a time, grind the ingredients into a smooth paste.
Once done transfer the smooth paste into a bowl. To this add yogurt and mustard oil. Finally add lemon juice. Mix well. Keep aside ready to use.

4) By now the potatoes must be partly boiled. Remove them from the pressure or pan as is the case into the bowl in which you plan to steam them. The bowl in which you will steam the potatoes with the freshly made paste should be lined with a banana leaf .

5) Next we will get the tempering ready. Take a pan. Heat 1 1/2 Tbsp of Mustard Oil. When hot add in the dry red chillies after tearing them into smaller pieces. Next goes in the Panch Phoron. Let everything crackle and become aromatic.TAKE CARE NOT TO BURN or else you will ruin the dish.

6) Pour the tempering over the potatoes in the bowl.
Next spoon in the paste which you made in step 3. Coat each potato nicely with this paste. Check for seasoning. Add salt if required. Cover the bowl with another banana leaf.

7) Place the bowl in the steamer and steam the potatoes with the sauce for 8~10 minutes. By this time your paste must have cooked nicely and also the potatoes cooked completely.

The Colony


The Colony

Originally shared by Jon “the chef” Hole

The Colony Bennachie (Beinn na Ciche: 'hill of the breast').
was a squatters' community on "commonty", or common land, on one side of Bennachie, a range of hills near Aberdeen, in Scotland.

From the beginning of the nineteenth century common land in the parishes of Chapel of Garioch and Oyne on the east side of Bennachie became home to a community of squatters.

This settlement was known locally as the Colony. A small number of families led a crofting life supplementing it by doing skilled work, such as dyking, quarrying and knitting.

In 1850 it is believed the Colony had a population of 55.
In 1859 eight neighbouring landlords took possession of sections of Bennachie as part of their estates.

This action, recognised in law from 5 March 1859, has become known as the Division of the Commonty.
As a result, the population on the side of the hill began to decline.
Most of the crofts were built on land claimed by Col. Charles Leslie of Balquhain and Fetternear.
His son, Charles Stephen Leslie, was responsible for evicting some of the residents in 1878.
The last of the colonists, George Esson, lived on the hill until his death in May 1939.

D.I.Y. Roasted Beet and Pear Summer food recipe.


D.I.Y. Roasted Beet and Pear Summer food recipe.
The beet is the most intense of vegetables
The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion
Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity
Beets are deadly serious

Slavic peoples get their physical characteristics from potatoes, their smoldering inquietude from radishes, their seriousness from beets

The beet is the melancholy vegetable, the one most willing to suffer
You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip

The beet is the murderer returned to the scene of the crime
The beet is what happens when the cherry finishes with the carrot

The beet is the ancient ancestor of the autumn moon, bearded, buried, all but fossilized; the dark green sails of the grounded moon-boat stitched with veins of primordial plasma; the kite string that once connected the moon to the Earth now a muddy whisker drilling desperately for rubies

The beet was Rasputin's favorite vegetable. You could see it in his eyes

From the Middle Ages, beetroot was used as a treatment for a variety of conditions, especially illnesses relating to digestion and the blood. Bartolomeo Platina recommended taking beetroot with garlic to nullify the effects of "garlic-breath"

Food shortages in Europe following World War I caused great hardships, including cases of mangelwurzel disease, as relief workers called it. It was symptomatic of eating only beets.

DIY ROASTED BEET and PEAR SALAD...
We've got a heat spell going on here in Northern California so we've been eating a lot of cold bean and veggie salads. I've been going to the local farmer's market every week to buy all of our organic meats, veggies and fruits. So, between our wonderful herb garden and the goodies from the farmer's market we've been eating really well and healthy! This salad is made from wonderful fresh ingredients and is so tasty on a hot summer day. Since the beets turn everything red, don't add the Feta until you're serving. Combine the salad with any meat for a cool treat as your side dish...

SERVES: 2
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 50-60 minutes for the beets

INGREDIENTS:
1 bunch of fresh red beets, roasted
1/3 C roasted, slivered almonds
1/4 C mint leaves
2 slices red onion, diced
1/8 C Italian parsley, diced
1/2 pear, chopped
1/2 can of 15.5 ounce Great Northern white beans
Fresh ground black pepper
Flavored balsamic to taste (I used strawberry flavor)
Feta cheese, crumbled on top

PREPARATION:
1. Roast the beets and let them cool completely. Peel them and cut them into chunks. Place in a medium sized bowl.
2. Cut up the onion, pear, Italian parsley. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the beets, except the Feta.
3. Stir to completely mix ingredients together.
4. When serving, sprinkle with Feta cheese.

Bon appetit,
Tom and Anita
