A long time ago, long before I became a nutrition therapist, in the land of magic chocolates, I was a chocolatier (a fine chocolate bonbons maker) at one of the most prestigious Patisserie-Chocolaterie in Brussels, Belgium: Wittamer. If you are drooling after reading this article, feel free to get their fine chocolate delicacies in New York City as well.
Little did I know at the time of the numerous health benefits of dark chocolate. In an interesting twist of fate, it turned out that the product I had been working with for years was good for you as well. The Europeans have appreciated its flavor and benefits without knowing why. All they knew was that it tasted great and that it could be appreciated under many, many delicious forms and flavors, but I suspect that health was the least of their concerns, at the time. First, let me give you a little explanation about what is chocolate and the different kinds available. More in my book. Chef Alain Braux

Coco is Anna Del Conte's 12-year-old granddaughter and her tireless helper in the kitchen. From a very early age, Coco showed an interest in food and cooking - Anna taught her to smell and taste food, and soon enough Coco was able to start helping, progressing from decorating cakes to making pasta to conjuring up her favourite tagines.
Taking us from the simple dishes of the early stages, through to more complex cooking for older children - by way of meatballs, Coco's first biscuits, lamb with couscous and sweet ricotta pancakes - and illustrated with beautiful photographs, Anna Del Conte brings us the best of all the recipes they have cooked together. In a relaxed, informal style, she shows how to teach children the importance of seasonal food, how to introduce new skills and techniques, and how to choose the best ingredients. But Cooking with Coco is also an inspirational reminder of how much fun families can have together in the kitchen.
Written by an internationally renowned cook, food writer and grandmother, for all the eager - and sometimes mischievous - faces around her table, Cooking with Coco is a book for anyone who wants to introduce children to simple, healthy and delicious cooking and the joy and satisfaction of making it themselves.
Cooking Sous Vide [EPUB]

2016 | EPUB | 74.5MB
Sous Vide (which is French for "under vacuum") is the process of cooking foods, like meats and vegetables, in sealed bags submerged in a water bath that is maintained at a constant temperature. The result is food that is cooked nearly perfectly because of precise temperature control that virtually eliminates the possibility of over-or under-cooking food. The slow, controlled method of sous vide results in meats and vegetables that have a much more delicate texture than if being cooked at high temperatures.
Cooking Sous Vide covers the basics of how sous vide works, buying the right equipment, how to season sous vide foods, and how to cook sous vide safely, while achieving optimum results. Over 70 recipes, with beautiful color photography, are featured throughout.
