Did the Italians Teach the French the Art of the Vinaigrette?

  • By the late 17th century, the word had come to mean something completely different, but was also completely appropriate for the food of its time: a light dressing for comparably lightly cooked vegetables, like haricots verts or artichokes.
  • The town no longer figures in guidebooks (with the construction of the Fréjus Tunnel, Susa is almost always bypassed), and since the Maastricht Treaty of 1992, the borders have been effectively dissolved, but for me it was an unexpected miracle—to stand there, in front of the portal through which so much has passed, back and forth: hunter-gatherers, soldiers, salt, Hannibal with his elephants, black pepper, the Apostle Paul, Julius Caesar en route to conquering Gaul, Charles VIII hoping to conquer Italy, François Premier (twice), Rabelais, Montaigne, Leonardo da Vinci, manuscripts, merchants, popes, 18 centuries of monks, religious pilgrims, Charlemagne, Italian bankers, the Renaissance, the history of Europe, and, possibly, a salad dressing.

This Soup Maker Is Perfect for Folks Who Hate to Cook

  • This was the Philips Soup Maker, and there was a practicality to it that struck a chord with me, the kind of tool I could imagine the vaguely kitchen-averse putting to good use.
  • Rough chop some veggies and maybe a little meat, crack a can of broth, pour it all into the jug with some herbs, choose one of the five presets, walk away, and return to hot lunch 20 minutes later.
  • This peculiarly tiny difference has a purpose: It allows all of the food to cook properly when you follow Philips' recipes and quantities, but you've always gotta cook that amount, which might be called "plenty of dinner for two if you've got toast." Those buying with their eyes would be forgiven if they thought it could make much more than that, as those min/max lines are less than halfway up the side of the jug.
  • If that's your kind of cooking and you like soup, buy the Soup Maker with confidence and don't look back.

Did George Washington Use Ketchup? (2012)

  • You can still find a direct descendant of 18th century ketchup either in your refrigerator, or if not there, on a shelf at your local grocer: it’s called Worcestershire sauce (that’s pronouced “wuus-ter-sher” for those who, like me, have difficulty slurring the word enough).
  • By the mid 1800’s numerous recipes were written for tomato ketchup, many of which had dropped the fermented sea creatures from the list of ingredients.
  • I can say (again, without implying any guarantee of results) that I made a batch of the mushroom ketchup mentioned in this post about 10 to 11 months ago and it has been aging in a bottle on my kitchen counter ever since.
