Chef with knives

What Florin Revesz acknowledged, shortly before the "Chefs with knives" final. Fans reacted immediately


Cumin or cumin?

Many people confuse them. Honestly, I can fool you. And caraway and cumin they have about the same appearance, and their seeds (which, frankly, are fruits) have the same shape and almost the same color (in the shades of the earth), the cumin seeds being lighter in color and larger than those of cumin. You can see the biggest difference in taste. Caraway is more bitter with a distinct and rich aroma, harsher and more masculine, while cumin has a sweet-spicy taste, with floral and peppery notes. The botanists, of course, distinguished them and gave each one a Latin name: kimionului, cuminum cyminum and cumin, carum carvi.

The German word for caraway, "Kummel", derives from the Latin "cuminum", and also derived from the Greek "kyminon". designations caraway in some European countries, especially the Nordic ones (where cumin is very popular) are also related to the Latin form of the word: "kommen" in Danish, "kimenes" in Lithuanian, "koomen" in Estonian, "kminek" in Polish, “Kim” in Bulgarian.

The Greek word "karon" refers to a related plant, known to us as "Turkish cumin"Or, simply,"cumin”. Its origin is not very clear, but it seems to come from a region of Asia Minor (Caria). The word was borrowed by the Latins in the form "carum" which means cumin from here come the names from modern languages ​​English "caraway", French "carvi", Italian "caro", Greek "karvi" and Norwegian "karve".

In Romanian cumin comes from Turkish: kimion, perhaps because the merchants brought him from the City of the Sultans, Istanbul (Constantinople). In the ancient world, however, they had the same name, found in several Semitic languages: kamunu in Akkadian, gamun in Sumerian, kmn in Ugaritic and Phoenician, kammon in Hebrew and kamun in Arabic, a name also borrowed from the Greeks in Agamemnon's time: ku-mi-no, (became in classical Greek kimino/ κύμινο).

caraway it is one of the oldest spices, known since antiquity. It is a herbaceous plant, of Mediterranean origin with edible root, similar in shape to parsnip, from the same family as parsley and coriander, the plant has a similar appearance to dill, with finely branched leaves that grow on stems of 20-30 cm .

It grows wild throughout Europe, western Asia and India. And it is cultivated - due to the special local appreciation - in the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary and Poland.

Cumin is best valued in foods in which it can impose its "alpha" spice value. For this reason it is rarely combined with other spices and almost never with some stronger than it. Used mainly in cabbage dishes (especially sauerkraut pickles), cumin is also used in rich dishes, lamb stews, pork, goose and baked potatoes.

If you have the impression that you know it in combination with cheeses (other than the telemeaua de Brăila), it is because it adheres perfectly to the crust of cheese pretzels. To understand the Hungarian passion for these seeds, you will need to carefully decompose the taste of a goulash to find the aroma of cumin in the sweet spicy mixture.

In northern Germany, but also in "Szeklerland", a liqueur is produced based on a classic grain distillate, flavored with cumin oils. The German liqueur is called "kummel" and our local version has - although it is not related to cumin but cumin - Szekler cumin. Rarely, but not found in our country, the young cumin leaves, in the first year of life, are eaten, usually in salads where they add a lot of abundance in shape and texture but are almost odorless in terms of taste. Cumin seeds are used whole or crushed to release the whole flavor. By frying, the cumin seeds will highlight their scent.

cumin is known from the years 5000 BC. Its seeds were also found in the pyramids of the pharaohs, and in the Middle Ages its aroma was very popular. Caraway is part of the same family as fennel, and if it's easier for you, think that its seeds resemble those of fennel. It originates from the southern part of Europe, in the area of ​​the Mediterranean Sea and Egypt. Definitive for the Arabian area, it is used in all cuisines of the Middle East and North Africa, it is very popular in Mexico and India, a country that has a real weakness for cumin.

The taste of cumin is only vaguely similar to that of cumin. It is part of the dominant note of the smell of garam masala with which your clothes are impregnated in insufficiently ventilated Indian restaurants (or houses). Caraway is the spice that makes a recipe from some meat with beans and hot peppers a chili with meat authentic. It is used in combination with cheese, meat, bread and even in some bitters (fermented plant drinks). Indian cuisine is mainly used in the preparation of well-known spice mixtures such as garam masala, tandoori and curry. Chutneys, especially mangoes, bear the imprint of a kimono.

Turkish cuisine has given it an important place in the taste of its food, where it can be found sizzling on the grill in kebaps. From here it came to us as part of the meat mix for little ones. Caraway is used like most spices, whole or ground. Especially in Arabic and Indian dishes, cumin is fried at the beginning or during the preparation process in order to fully release its flavor contained in oils.

Caraway seeds, powdered or whole, are placed in bread and corn dough, in cakes or pies of any kind, in soups, salads, steamed potatoes with onion and parsley sauce, over cauliflower or eggplant, with goat's cheese, in beans and lentils of all colors, but especially in barley puree or raisin rice, in soup and fresh cabbage salad, in sauerkraut salad and with cream cheese of raw apples or grapes, in the soft eggs of the morning, along with cinnamon and a little mint, make them easy to burn and give them the strength to drive away the fatigue of the mind and limbs.

It seems that in the Middle Ages, cumin and cumin were among the most popular and cheap spices-remedies. Cumin is rich in minerals: iron, copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, magnesium vitamins: vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B complex, antioxidants, fiber (100g of seeds contain about 38g of fiber). Cumin is successful in treating gastritis, constipation (due to its high fiber content) and other intestinal conditions. Also due to the high fiber content lowers blood cholesterol. The ground cumin seeds are placed in the bath water of the babies to calm their colic. The steam emanating from the cumin stew is inhaled to make breathing easier and to cure bronchitis.

Caraway contains iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium. Caraway iron supports the functions of energization and immunity. Caraway also helps digestion and has anti-cancer properties. Several studies have shown that the administration of cumin increases the secretion of breast milk, improves milk quality, and also reduces the incidence of colic in babies. It is recommended to consume daily 1-3 cups of cumin infusion combined with honey. If there is inflammation of the breasts, cracks, during breastfeeding, put on the affected area a poultice with flax and cumin seeds, previously soaked for four hours in warm water.

The couple will be able to celebrate for free the day of February 14 dedicated to lovers at any of the locations of the luxury hotel, until 2038, FoxNews writes.

The & # 8222Nooner Baby Maker & # 8221 promotion, launched by Hotel Zed earlier this year, has invited couples to spend four hours at any of the hotel's three Valentine's Day locations, and couples who will be welcoming a baby into the new family months later they will have the chance to win 18 years of free stay.

Cabbage salad with cumin

A very simple recipe, excellent for diet , because it can be consumed without limit. You can use it with grilled meat, but also with vegetables.
It can be left in the fridge.
If you are on a more drastic diet, you can give up oil or use a smaller amount. I recommend this cabbage salad with cumin.


Interesting sandwiches

When a hearty snack is needed, sandwiches are the staple. So that the student does not get bored of always having the same food with him, you can use various types of bread. It would be better to contain wholemeal flour, rye or graham, which is more nutritious, with a high content of fiber, vitamins and magnesium. For young children, you can cut them into various shapes (triangles, circles, hearts, etc.) to make them more attractive. You can also use pita (Arabic bread).

For filling, the variants are enough: grilled meat, telemea, cheese, slices of boiled eggs or omelet. You can also use homemade cream cheese made from sweet cheese mixed with butter, dill and chopped parsley, various spices such as paprika (which will give it a reddish color) or cumin. It is preferable, especially for children, not to give them sausages that have a high content of food additives harmful to health. Be sure to add lettuce leaves, thin slices of tomatoes or cucumbers. You can also make tuna sandwiches: mix the tuna in a can with mayonnaise, pitted olives, boiled egg pieces and add lettuce.

One of the big problems with sandwiches is that they get wet. To prevent this from happening, place the tomato slices in the center and place a salad leaf between them. Make sure that the Telemea cheese is well drained. It is preferable to wrap them in food foil because the napkins can be damaged more easily.


Fruit pyramids

Hello, baby! Today I propose a very interesting topic, namely: Fruit Pyramids!

What is so interesting about a fruit pyramid, you may be wondering ?!

Well to make a fruit pyramid it is good to know a little geometry and it is very good if we go back a little in Egyptian history to see how the pyramids were made and what they were made for. According to history textbooks on the Egyptian pyramids, it is said that they were built to house the lifeless bodies of the great pharaohs (example: Sakkarah Pyramid - the first stepped pyramid made under the guidance of architect Imhotep and made to house the mummy of Egyptian King Djoser), but according to recent discoveries, the pyramids were built to generate electricity. However, research on the construction of the pyramids will continue for the duration of human history, because there is always something new to discover.

At the same time I will write to you about a great team of Romanian children who managed this year to get the 2nd place at the International Organized Contest for Genesis - within the Bible step by step project, a contest in which 15 - 16 groups of 8 -9 participated children from different countries 1st place being obtained by the team of children from London.

In our short article about pyramids, we have also inserted photos with the drawings of the group's children from Romania, winners of the 2nd place in the contest of the first book in the Bible - Genesis.

The children were congratulated with diplomas, medals and cups, but also with tangerines and sesame salts in the shape of hearts.

As a participant in their preparations for the second stage of the competition, which will be from Exodus, study hours in which they "marched" through the history of Egypt, the historical period in which the 10 plagues were given, followed by the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. notice the desire of the children to know the details of the events and preparations necessary for the departure of the Jews from the land of Egypt, a history which was not mentioned in the pages of the Holy Scriptures.

In the image gallery you can see all the drawings of the group of children who took the second place in the contest for the first book of the Holy Scriptures - Genesis.

I want to thank and wish a healthy end to the year to the organizers of the competitions for the study of Holy Scripture, to all the children and to all the parents who took their time and material resources and got involved so that the little ones could find such wealth. of information from creation to the history of Egypt and the Jews at the same time.
