  • Pewter Vessels And Herbs

    Elizabethan Food & Dining For the well-to-do, eating during the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods was a fancy affair. A king or queen when going abroad could expect banquet tables filled with hundreds of dishes -- for just one meal! There was much pageantry and entertainment. At Leicester, Queen Elizabeth I (predecessor of King James VI & I) was greeted with a pageant of welcome displayed on a temporary bridge. There were cages of live birds -- bitterns, curlews, and godwits. One pillar held grea...

  • End The Difference Between A Good Cook
    526 words
    Good Cook, Bad Cook There are a few differences between a good cook and a bad cook. Three qualities that make the difference between cooks is their timing, ability of taste recognition, and their ability to prepare food and make it look good. These qualities are important because, without them your next meal might end up a disaster. Like some people say, timing is everything without timing, the meal you just spent hours on may just burn up. Sometimes you might think the food is fully cooked beca...
  • Certain Foods And Eating Styles
    642 words
    Reflections on Eating Habits and Who a Person Is There is one memory I possess which is directly related to food. I was four or five and I was hurt badly by my brother. My mother tells me she knew I was seriously hurt because I actually sat still for thirty minutes straight. Well, to take my mind off of my pain, my mother offered to make me my favorite meal at the time. The part I remember is that when she gave it to me, I did not like it, and this was my all time favorite food. Have others of v...
  • Table Manners
    580 words
    The music plays faintly; innocently admit the floating flavors. Whispering conversations evolve together to form a sweet rhythm opposing the clashing cutlery. Chef's shout to catch the waiter's attentions, orders pasted to the wall like ugly swans in a beautiful pond. Dim lights glow like the moon, giving a subtropical moonlit effect. At reception, which is also the bar, phones ring incessantly, but no-one answers. Bar people scatter around, spilling and splashing drinks while plopping in the ic...

  • British Food
    1,634 words
    Some time ago Somerset Maugham said that 'to eat well in England, you should have breakfast three times a day. ' To be perfectly honest, most British food was considered by many people as terrible. It included overcooked vegetables, boring sandwiches and greasy sausages. It was definitely not an enjoyable experience. However, these are now only stereotypes. Things have changed a lot and food has become very important in British culture. Not only TV cooks are more famous than writers, but also th...
  • Five To Six Meals A Day
    404 words
    As important as it is to exercise, it may be even more important to watch what you eat. It is not so much of what you eat, but how much you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. If you eat low in calorie snacks between meals, you will not be as hungry during normal meals, causing you to eat less then you would have without the snacks. Eating five or six smaller meals a day, rather than three large meals, is said to increase your metabolism. An increase in metabolism should help you burn calo...
