Wine - Becoming Familiar with The Alcoholic Beverage

Wine: Many of us are not even vaguely familiar with the different varieties of wine that are available for purchase.

In fact, some of us probably thought red wine and white wine were the only ones in existence.

Most of us don’t have any idea of the number of varieties of wine that are in existence.

We have dinner wines, dessert wines, red wines, white wines, dry red wine, dry white wine, sweet red wine, sweet white wine and much more.

Before you serve your first dinner that includes wine, make sure to understand something about wines. Know what is proper to serve with different meals.

A general rule of thumb is white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat, but there may sometimes be variations to that.

For instance, although chicken is a white meat, red wine is the customary wine of choice because it complements a chicken meal better than white wine

Another variation is turkey which has both white meat and dark meat.

Because of both white and dark meat on turkey, one can choose to serve either white or red wine while some may actually serve both—red to the guests who choose dark meat and white to those who choose white meat.

Another thing that is important to understand is the relationship between red wine and fish...

Wine - The Making Of Red

Wine: Among the many types of wine available, red is among the best.

There are many types of red wine available, although most are made using the same methods.

This very exhilarating type of wine is made from black grapes, drawing their colour from the skins of the grapes.

During the beginning stages of making red wine, the grapes that have been picked are put into a crusher.

Here, the crusher will gently break the skins of the grapes.

Depending on what type of wine is being made and the tannin that’s required, the stalks will either be used or discarded at this point.

Next, the grapes are put into a fermentation vat with the skins.

This can be a long process, taking several weeks to complete.

If a higher temperature is used, more tannin and colour will be extracted from the grapes.

When making soft wines, the whole grapes are fermented using sealed vats.

The carbon dioxide that becomes trapped in the sealed vats ferment the grapes under pressure, which is normally a quick process, taking only a few days.

Keep in mind, the colour and tannin content of the wine is based on how long the fermenting process takes.

If the fermenting process takes a long time, the wine will generally hold more flavour and colour.

The remaining bulk of the grapes will go through a press, being crushed to create a tannic wine...

Italian Wine - Unique Quality And World Class

Eachy year it is quite common for Italian wine to be at the top of the pile when it comes to good ranking, not the least of which ranks it as the biggest producer, exporter and consumer of wine in the world.

If you consider that Italy is only a few hundred miles smaller than the state of California then this fact here is far more interesting.

Even though Italy produces close to 8,000,000,000, bottles of wine every year, the vinters have kept to the same high quality standard of making wine that has a legacy of over 4,000 years.

As a result of this Italy has some of the most unique and quality wines on the globe, as well as having the most grape varieties that are locally produced than any country in the world.

One of the bigger deliberations with Italy's unique wine style is the wide scope of assorted cultures that exist all the way through its 20 wine regions.

Each of these cultures has a vigorous sense of pride that translates openly into wine production...

Champagne - A Look At Riddling Racks

Champagne: In the process of manufacturing Champagne, riddling racks are a must have.

Once the sparkling wine has began to age, it will be time for the concluding stages.

Riddling is essential to the life of Champagne as it collects the sediment in bottles and deposits it near the bottle’s mouth.

This sediment is what helps to bring the bubbles bursting out when you pop the cork.

Champagne bottles are put on riddling racks at a 45 degree angle, comprising the two rectangular boards that have been hinged at the top of the rack.

On each side of the rack, there are ten rows that contain six holes for the necks of the bottles.

Due to their structure and shape, each riddling rack is capable of holding 120 bottles, although there are special models that are made to hold more.

The riddler, who places the bottles, will place a bottle neck into each one of the holes on the riddling racks.

There are painted lines at the bottom of each bottle, which acts as a marker for placing the bottles...

What is Wine - A Basic Introduction

What is wine exactly? Wine has been around the world for over 7000 years and is made from just 2 basic ingredients, yeast and grape juice.

By far the majority of all wine is made from the juice of the grape, although some wines do use the skin, this mainly colour the wine( rose for example).

How is wine made?

Yeast is the main ingredient needed for fermentation and yeast is what transforms the grapes into wine.

Just as a point of interest, there are actually wild yeast spores just being carried all over the place by the wind.

To make wine you just need an open container of grape juice, patience and time. The result however, wouldn't be very pleasant to taste.

There are a number of different strains of yeasts, numbering somewhere in 1000's and the types being used to make wine have been designed for this sole purpose.

So yeast is actually a living organism that feeds off sugars in the grape juice in a process called fermentation.

When fermenting, yeast spores increase in numbers exponentially, this happens until the sugar content has been consumed.

During this fermentation process, the sugars are converted into alcohol and carbon dioxide...

Essentials Of Cooking - The Problem Of Food

Essentials of cooking: Without doubt, the greatest problem confronting the human race is that of food. In order to exist, every person must eat; but eating simply to keep life in the body is not enough.

Aside from this, the body must be supplied with an ample amount of energy to carry on each day's work, as well as with the material needed for its growth, repair, and working power.

To meet these requirements of the human body, there is nothing to take the place of food, not merely any kind, however, but the right kind.

Indeed, so important is the right kind of food in the scheme of life that the child deprived of it neither grows nor increases in weight, and the adult who is unable to secure enough of it for adequate nourishment is deficient in nerve force and working power.

If a person is to get the best out of life, the food taken into the body must possess real sustaining power and supply the tissues with the necessary building material; and this truth points out that there are facts and principles that must be known in order that the proper selection of food may be made, that it may be so prepared as to increase its value, and that economy in its selection, preparation, use, and care may be exercised.

Probably the most important of these principles is the cooking of food...

Milk - Composition And Facts

As milk is usually taken into the body in liquid form, the common tendency is to regard it as a beverage, rather than as an important source of nourishing food material.

However, a knowledge of its composition, as well as the fact that milk becomes a solid food in the stomach and must then be dissolved in the process of digestion, will serve to show that milk contains solids.

That it possesses all the elements required to sustain life and promote health is proved by the fact that a child may live for months on milk alone and during this time increase in weight.

The solids contained in milk are proteins, fat, carbohydrate in the form of sugar, and mineral salts, besides which, of course, water occurs in large quantities.

The sugar and fat of milk serve as fuel; the mineral salts are chiefly valuable for the growth of bones and teeth and for their effect on the liquids of the body; and the proteins, like the fat and sugar, serve as fuel, but they also make and repair the muscular tissues of the body.

In considering the food substances of milk, it will be well to note also that they vary according to the breed, feeding, and individual characteristics of the cow.

Jerseys and Guernseys give milk rich in fat and total solids, and while Holstein cows give a greater quantity of milk, such milk has a smaller proportion of fat and total solids.

As a rule, though, the composition of milk may be considered as approximately 3.3 per cent. protein, 4 per cent...

Cheese - Characteristics And Care

Cheese is a product that is manufactured from the solids of milk, and it provides a valuable food.

The making of cheese was known in ancient times, it having probably originated through a desire to utilize an oversupply of milk.

When cheese was first made, the fact that bacteria were present was not known, nor were the reasons for the spoiling of milk understood; but it was learned that milk can be kept if most of its water is removed.

This discovery was very important, for it led to various methods of making cheese and proved that cheese making was a satisfactory and convenient means of storing nourishment in a form that was not bulky and that would keep for long periods of time.

From a very small beginning, the different methods of making cheese became popular, until at the present time more than three hundred varieties are made and their manufacture forms one of the large industries of the world.

In the United States, nearly all the cheese used up to about 50 years ago was made on farms, and to a great extent by housewives, but about that time a factory for the making of this product was started in the state of New York, and it proved a profitable enterprise.

From this beginning, the business of making cheese commercially in the United States has grown to the extent that cheese is almost entirely a factory-made product, in the manufacture of which the states of New York and Wisconsin lead.

In either the commercial or the home production of cheese, skim milk with all or part of the cream removed is used for some varieties, while whole milk is used for others, the composition depending largely on the kind of milk that is employed.

Rennet is added to the milk to coagulate it, and then the curd, from which nearly all the water is removed, is allowed to ripen...

Beverages - Drink In The Diet

Nature And Classes Of Beverages:

Throughout the lifetime of every person there is constant need for solid food to preserve health and prolong life; and, just as such food is necessary to satisfy the requirements of the body, so, too, is there need for water.

As is well known, the composition of the body is such that it contains more liquid than solid material, the tissues and the bones weighing much less than the liquid.

A tremendous amount of this liquid is continually being lost through the kidneys, through each pore in the skin, and even through every breath that is exhaled, and if continued good health is to be maintained this loss must be constantly made up.

This loss is greater in very hot weather or in the performance of strenuous exercise than under ordinary conditions, which accounts for the fact that more than the usual amount of liquid must be supplied during such times.

So necessary is liquid refreshment that the body cannot exist without it for any great length of time.

In fact, if the supply were cut off so that no more could be obtained, the body would begin to use its own fluids and death would soon occur.

A person can live for many days without solid food, but it is not possible to live for more than a very few days without drink.

Nature's way of serving notice that the body is in need of liquid refreshment is through the sensation of thirst...

History Of Coffee - The Beverage That History Loves

The history of coffee is a topic that true coffee lovers should be interested in,and make a point of looking into because it is simply fascinating.

Around the period of A.D 850 legend has it that a lone shepherd and his herd came across an exotic new plant that was growing upon the slopes of a hillside.

Before the shepherd could intervene a number of his herd had started to chew away at this newly discovered delicacy.

After about a quarter of an hour the shepherd began to notice that the entire flock were acting in an extremely lively manner.

They appeared to be not only very alert but also incredibly hyperactive.

The shepherd being slightly weary and more than a little tired decided that he also should sample the berries and see what effect they would have on him.

He secretly hoped that the dramatic effect that he had observed the berries to have on his flock of sheep would also be his experience.

Just as had happened with his herd, he too started to feel the benefits and in a matter of minutes he also was buzzing.

The exhilaration prompted him to bring the berries to a monk in a nearby monastery.

But the holy man disapproved of their use and threw them into a the fire, from which an enticing aroma billowed.

The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world's first cup of coffee.

Its extensive use then took a grip in the Ethiopian lands before then migrating on to the Arabian outlands...

Argentina Food - Culinary Traditions

Argentina food tend to be very high in protein, so grilled meats are a a staple.

Argentina is South America's second largest country, snugly situated between the Andes mountain range, the Pacific Ocean, and the South American countries of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, and Chile.

Being situated in such a manner, Argentina is exposed to many different cultural influences from all directions, including countries all the way across the Pacific.

Spain took it upon themselves to permanently settle in the country in the late 1500s, and remained there until Buenos Aires formally emancipated themselves in 1853.

One of the most remarkable differences between Argentine Cuisine and exotic cuisines from around the world is the heavy influence that the cuisine of the Italian and Spanish cultures had on it...

Brazilian Cuisine - The Staples Diet Are Root Vegetables Seafood Meat

Brazilian cuisine: It began as most ‘ethnic food movements’ do – with small restaurants in the neighborhoods where immigrants settled, diners and lunchrooms and tea rooms opened by those who wanted to offer a taste of home to their fellow émigrés.

Chinese, Italian, Middle Eastern, Thai – from family run bistros, the cuisine spread as those outside the cultures of the ‘neighborhood’ learned of the good food and the word spread.

The latest ‘new cuisine’ that is spreading like wildfire is Brazilian – a delicious blending of three separate cultures that comes together in dishes and delicacies that aren’t found anywhere else in the world.

To understand the cuisine of Brazil, one must understand a little of its history.

The base of Brazilian cuisine is in its native roots – the foods that sustained the native Brazilians – cassava, yams, fish and meat – but it bears the stamp of two other peoples as well: the Portuguese who came to conquer and stayed, and the African slaves that they brought with them to work the sugar plantations.

Brazilian cuisine today is a seamless amalgam of the three influences that interweave in a unique and totally Brazilian style.

The staples of the Brazilian diet are root vegetables, seafood and meat...

Content Marketing - Strategy And Tips

Content marketing can go by various names such as private media, branded content, customer media and so on, but they are all essentially content marketing.

This is probably one of the best ways to make sure your marketing is being truly effective.

When it comes to marketing your online business, content is a key part of getting your message across.

Content is not just writing articles; but it is blogging, micro-blogging, reports, ebooks, newsletters, and more.

How you create and promote the content will make the difference between whether or not you accomplish your goal, whatever it may be.

One definition of content marketing is a technique of making and distributing valuable and relevant content to bring in a much defined target audience with the over all objective being the creation of sales and informing.

The idea around content marketing is to deliver consistent and useful information to the customer...

Sex - Continence Continuous Sex Dissatisfaction

Sex:Continence means a complete lack of sexual intercourse.

Specialists gave this disorder of sexual behavior the following classification:

1. For the young people who have recently started their sexual life is quite characteristic to have the continence intervals, which can vary from couple of days to couple of months.

2. Conditional physiological rhythm.

This category include young couples whose intervals of continence makes up approximately one week.

4. Syndrome of a monk.

This state is characterized by the lack of sexual contacts for the period exceeding three years.

So let's analyze how continence can affect your life and what are the consequences of this sexual disorder.

If the period between sexual contacts does not exceed half a year, it won't affect your health sufficiently.

The only problem that men may face is premature ejaculation during the first (after the continence) sexual intercourse...

Marketing - Focus On The Benefits

Marketing: The most important element of marketing is turning features into powerful benefits.

If you want to increase sales, you must focus on the benefits of your product or service, not the features.

So what is a benefit compared to a feature?

A benefit explains how a product or service will help a person.

If I buy this product, how will it make my life better?

Will it save me money?

Will it make me feel better about myself?

Will it make my life easier?

Benefits are very powerful sales tools because people buy products and services for an end result.

A feature explains a fact about what a product does such as a specification.

For example, the new ZMX car has anti-lock brakes.

That is a fact about the car - it has anti-lock brakes.

The problem with only listing a feature is that a feature does not explain why it is helpful - how it benefits a person.

Why would you want a car with anti-lock brakes?

The answer to that question is the benefit...

Soups - Good Food And Best Recipes

SOUP is a liquid food that is prepared by boiling meat or vegetables, or both, in water and then seasoning and sometimes thickening the liquid that is produced.

It is usually served as the first course of a dinner, but it is often included in a light meal, such as luncheon.

Soup is an easily made, economical, and when properly prepared from healthful and nutritious material, very wholesome article of diet, deserving of much more general use than is commonly accorded it.

The purpose of this Section is to acquaint you with the details of making appetizing and nutritious soups that make for both economy and healthfulness.

VALUE OF SOUP IN THE MEAL

Soup contains the very essence of all that is nourishing and sustaining in the foods of which it is made.

The importance of soup is to consider the purposes it serves in a meal.

When its variety and the ingredients of which it is composed are thought of, soup serves two purposes: first, as an appetizer taken at the beginning of a meal to stimulate the appetite and aid in the flow of digestive juices in the stomach; and secondly, as an actual part of the meal, when it must contain sufficient nutritive material to permit it to be considered as a part of the meal instead of merely an addition...

Public Relations - The True Measure Of Your PR Is The Perception Of People

Public relations managers MUST plan to do something positive about the behaviors of those valuable external audiences of theirs that MOST affect their operation.

Certainly, you could gauge the rather narrow results achieved by tactical subsets of your public relations program like special events, brochures, broadcast plugs or press releases.

On the other hand, you as a business, non-profit or association manager, might better measure the results of your strategic efforts to adjust individual perception among your key outside audiences leading to changed behaviors, which then help you achieve your managerial objectives.

Public relations managers MUST plan to do something positive about the behaviors of those important external audiences of theirs that most affect their operation.

And especially so when they persuade those key outside folks to their way of thinking by helping to move them to take actions that allow their department, division or subsidiary to succeed.

But of course it takes more than good intentions for any manager to alter individual, key-audience perception leading to changed behaviours, something of profound significance to ALL business, non-profit and association managers.

He or she needs a plan dedicated to getting every member of the public relations team working towards the same external audience behaviours which insures that the organization’s public relations effort stays sharply focused.

The plan could be based on a foundation that looks like this: people act on their own perception of the facts before them, which leads to predictable behaviors about which something can be done...

What is it about your product that is better than any of your competitors?

Is it of better quality, does it have a longer warranty, does it cost less than the competition?

You need to know what it is about your product that is better than the other ones around.

Sitting on the Ganges River, the city is an overwhelming display of crowds, colors and ancient Indian architecture.

Roads are packed with people, cars, cows and the pavement is more or less dirt and mud depending upon when you are there.

Architecturally, Varanasi is a typical of India itself.

You’ll find shanty towns and run down homes laying in contrast to stunning temples and homes of the Maharajas.

If you want to be impressed, simply walk down to the Ganges River and look up and down the river.

The structures lining the river will remind you of Venice, Italy, without the glitz.

The towering structures are both beautiful and ancient.

Following this view, a visit to the Darbhanga Ghat is an eye opener.

The massive structure is home to the Maharajas of Dharbhanga of Bihar.

The Ghat reeks of power, mysticism and long ago ages. You’ll know what I mean when you see it...

Job Interviews - How to Overcome Being "Overqualified"

Job interviews: A large majority of people have gone through the interview process, felt confident that you'd performed extremely well, and then heard these dreadful words:

"I'm sorry, but we feel you're overqualified for this position."

"Arrggh!!"

When I was told that after an interview, several thoughts went through my frustration-fogged mind...

What kind of crazy excuse is that for not hiring me?

So what if I'm 'overqualified' -- don't employers always want to hire the person with the best qualifications?

If I'm willing to take this job, overqualified or not, why is that a problem?

This isn't fair! What's the real reason they don't want to hire me?

When interviewers say you are "overqualified," here's what they are concerned about:

(1) You'll be bored in this position;

(2) You won't be satisfied with the salary they're offering;

(3) You'll leave as soon as you get a better opportunity;...

Healthy Eating - The Importance of Eating Healthy

Healthy eating: Have you ever heard the saying you are what you eat?

In some sense, this is true, because if you eat unhealthy foods you are prone to be an unhealthy person.

The foods we ingest are extremely important to our ability to grow, maintain function, and prevent illness.

Therefore, if you value your health, you should learn as much about healthy eating as possible.

Healthy eating is important from the day we are born.

As a child, we grow quite rapidly and this is due in part to the foods we eat.

Foods all contain nutrients that provide us not only with fuel to live our daily lives, but also with the very substances that build our bones, muscles, and organ tissues.

Not getting enough of one nutrient or another can cause a variety of problems, including stunting our growth.

For mothers who are nursing, nutrition is important because breast milk contains the nutrients a child needs to grow and develop properly.

Upon growing older, these nutrients are then found in food, but don’t think that healthy eating isn’t important for growth after you’ve gone through puberty.

Cells continuous break down and rebuild, so healthy eating for growth continues to be important until the day we die...

Healthy Eating - Becoming A Healthy Eater

Healthy eating: Being a healthy eater requires you to become both educated and smart about what healthy eating actually is.

Being food smart isn't about learning to calculate grams or fat, or is it about studying labels and counting calories.

Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate eating, consisting of healthy meals at least three times per day.

Healthy eaters eat many different types of foods, not limiting themselves to one specific food type or food group.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of leeway. You might eat too much or not enough, consume foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious.

However, you should always fuel your body and your brain regularly with enough food to keep both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver. Healthy eaters have learned to take care of themselves and their eating with sound judgement and making wise decisions.

Healthy eaters are always aware of what they eat, and know the effect that it will have on their bodies.

When someone is unable to take control of their eating, they are also likely to get out of control with other aspects of life as well.

They could end up spending too much, talking too much, even going to bed later and later...

Cooking As A Culinary Art

Culinary arts is the art of cooking. Cooking is a way to prepare food that will be eaten or served to other people.

The culinary arts is comprised of many categories - some of which are tools, methods, combination of spices and ingredients that adds flavour to the food.

It normally needs the right measurements, proper selection and accurate combination of ingredients involved to reach desired result.

The diversity of the Culinary arts around the world mirrors many considerations such as:

- Economic- Aesthetic- Nutritional- Religious- Cultural

1. The Dawn Of Fire

The culinary arts, if not always, is associated with fire.

The heat generated by fire is oftentimes required to be applied to be able to change the food's texture, flavour, nutritional contents and even its appearance.

Heating is important in the culinary arts because it disinfects the food and makes it softer. The food danger zone is between 4 to 60 degrees Celsius.

Within these temperatures, the bacteria found in the food or even those that were transferred to the food can grow at a very alarming rate.

Under ideal conditions bacteria can double their population every twenty minutes.

Although at a glance, these foods may not appear harmful, when ingested they can be.

Many people have the misconception that bacteria will die when we freeze our food or refrigerate them,

but this actually does not rid the food of bacteria, merely it slows down their expansion.

2. Baking

Baking is probably the most famous department in the culinary arts. In the culinary arts, baking is the art of cooking food using an oven.

The food is cooked through applying dry heat evenly through the oven and onto the food. It is used in producing pastry based goodies such as pies, tarts and cakes.

The dry heat in the oven causes the starch to gelatinize and results to the browning or charring of the outside of the food...

Cooking - Making A Meal For One

Cooking: It is often frustrating to attempt to plan meals that are designed for one.

Despite this fact, we are seeing more and more recipe books and Internet websites that are dedicated to the act of cooking for one.

Divorce and the death of spouses or grown children leaving for college are all reasons that someone accustomed to cooking for more than one would suddenly need to learn how to adjust all the cooking practices utilized before into a streamlined plan of cooking that is more efficient for one person creating less waste.

The mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make cooking for one a challenge rather than a trial.

Use this opportunity to try new and exciting cuisines.

Perhaps one of the greatest things about cooking for one is the fact that it isn't quite as expensive as cooking for two.

This means that you have a little more money in the grocery budget with which to plan and prepare your meals.

One thing you may want to keep in mind however is that when cooking for one, is for you to prepare foods that are freezable.

It may save more time (and in the end money) if you cook the full 2-4 servings that most recipes call for and freeze the leftovers in single serving portions for a later point in time.

This leaves you with a freezer full of foods for those nights when the thought of cooking just seems beyond your capabilities.

This also leaves you with doing the work once and enjoying the fruits of your efforts many times over.

This is a great position to be in if you ask me.

We are finding more and more recipes and cookbooks that are designed around the concept of cooking for one...
