Fresh juices, as well as other natural and unprocessed foods, have a role to play in achieving this.

Chinese Cutting Techniques

Print

cuttingThe preparation of food for cooking is probably more important and more time-consuming in Chinese cookery than in any other cuisine.

This means that food can be cooked for a minimum of time so that it retains its natural texture and taste. The other reason for careful cutting is to enhance the visual appeal of a dish.

Choosing Good Wine. What Factors Influence on Taste of Specific Wine

Print

wine_cThe structure of the soil varies considerably around the world; not just the topsoil - whether your garden is dominated by loam, lime or clay -but the deep sub-structure of the earth as well.
