A few months back I thought of having crown fried chicken so I went to the nearby restaurant. It was a normal Wednesday but I had to wait for 40 min for order. I was damn hungry and anyone in place of me would have got irritated. I had to say back because I had done the payment. The crown chicken no longer fulfilled my appetite instead It was a complete mess.
From that day onward I took a pledge that I will never visit a restaurant for my meals. But the interesting part of it is I can enjoy my chicken sitting at home. You must be wondering after that incident I have turned to be a chef. Not really I am not in favor of cooking except for the bread and omelette and sandwiches.
Now coming to the main part how do I bring restaurant experience to my doorstep? With the changing technologies, delivery has become very easy. Quickly install a restaurant deliver app in your mobile phone, always place the orders using it, and you will be getting home delivery within a particular

The lettuce or the peaches are not the same as before. It is a topic of conversation on many tables and a reality that has driven a new generation of dietetics: that of the so-called super foods.
Given the decrease in the quality of the products we consume today and, sometimes, in the face of an unbalanced diet, the arrival of those new products with extra properties is more than welcome: they are high in antioxidants (such as vitamins A, C and E) ) and phytonutrients (chemical substances present in plants that provide color and flavor, as well as protection against ultraviolet radiation and infections), eliminate toxins, contribute to reduce the risk of heart disease or cancer and combat aging.
It is common to hear about the excellence of traditional products in the Mediterranean diet, such as olive oil.

One of America’s most popular ethnic cuisines is unquestionably Mexican. How far we have come from those hard, crisp tacos and lard-laden refried beans. Dating back to the Mayan culture circa 1500 BC, corn and beans have formed the foundation of original Mexican foods and still comprise a major portion of their foods. They were plentiful and easily stored. Gradually, a variety of fresh ingredients have been added over the years, along with chicken, beef, pork and seafood, to delight the palates of most everyone, from fast food to haute cuisine, and everything in between. But the basics which we adore the most still top our hit parade. So let’s check out the whole enchilada:
As early as 5000 BC, possibly 7000 BC in Pre-Columbian history. the tamale (or “tamal”) is corn masa, individually wrapped in a corn husk and was the perfect portable food. Kind of your early fast convenience food, they were often carried by warriors, hunters and travelers as a sort of meal on the go. Early tamales were often filled with turkey,frog, flamingo, axolotl (salamander), gopher or rabbit (would I make that up?). Homemade tamales are still a tradition at Christmas in Mexican homes, and their preparation
After a great party or dinner celebration, deciding what to do with a table full of leftovers may not be at the forefront of your mind, but it’s an important part of partying. It’s certainly a pity to waste good food, but letting leftovers linger without temperature control can be unsafe.
Any food left out for more than two hours is susceptible to harmful bacterial growth and should be disposed of. This goes for any part of the meal, and it’s especially important if your leftovers have been sitting out in the summer heat. This holds true for both cold and hot foods, so be sure to serve foods immediately before mealtime and store anything that’s sitting out as soon as the meal is coming to a close.
Bacteria thrive between 41 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit – this is known as the temperature “Danger Zone” for food storage. As soon as the food hits that range, bacteria start growing immediately, so the less time spent in that zone, the safer the food is.
Wrap it up!
How should you handle what’s left?
• Save only the food you know to have been handled safely in the first place, and which hasn’t been tainted by double-dipping
The modern-day jelly bean dates back to the Civil War, when it was promoted to Union soldiers (1860s) by the first-known manufacturer, the Schrafft Candy Company. In the early 20th century, “jelly bean” was slang for a man who dressed stylishly (commonly referred to a “fop”). In other words, your basic man of style but no substance, which pretty much describes the actual candy, almost pure sugar, with a bit of flavoring.
Present at all Cabinet meetings were several large jars of jelly beans sitting on the conference table during President Reagan’s administration, as well as a fixture in the Oval Office and on Air Force One. Guests at Reagan’s 1981 inaugural parties consumed a whopping 40 million jelly beans (about 7,000 pounds). Gourmet Jelly Belly brand actually created a new flavor, blueberry, specifically for the event. Ronnie was clearly the jelly bean president (wouldn’t foodie Thomas Jefferson have loved that).
Jelly beans became a regular penny candy in the early 1900s and were the first confection to be sold by weight rather than piece. Later they were packaged in bags and sold in assorted flavors. In the 1930s, they exemplified Easter candy and sales skyrocketed each spring. There are a staggering
Even though we’re civilized people who understand that a society needs rules, the last thing we might associate with a place with rules is a movie grill. If you think about it, a movie grill is supposed to be the leading model of how a movie theater should run. It keeps the customer as its top priority, so the notion that there would be anything the customer couldn’t do seems a little contradictory.
Then again, it is important for folks to remember that a movie grill is also a business that caters to a large number of people. If they, or any other business, allowed their customers to go “willy-nilly” and do whatever they wanted, you’d have chaos. Movie grills are about making the moviegoing public feel at home while providing a top-of-the-line movie experience. This means that for all of the fun and innovation, there are some things you probably shouldn’t be doing.
Here are a few things you probably shouldn’t do at a movie grill:
Don’t Arrive Late – Obviously, life can get in the way, but try to arrive a bit early for your movie. There is usually have a limit as to how late they will see someone, so be
Unless you live in the Southwest, you may not be familiar with Taco Tuesday, but it’s a tradition among Mexican restaurants, both large and small, to feature tacos at a discount each Tuesday thus generating more business, and allowing families to dine out for less. (Think of them as Mexican happy hours.) And you may not be familiar at all with the most popular taco, namely the fish taco.
Although many people still think of ground beef and shredded lettuce as the filing of choice, the fish taco tops the hit parade in most restaurants, especially in California and other border states, and traditionally contains shredded cabbage, a piece of fried white fish or grilled mahi mahi, white cheese, maybe some avocado slices and topped off with a creamy dressing. There are a lot of variations, of course, which might add salsa fresca or chile peppers, served up with a wedge of fresh lime (an essential). And of course, there are always the designer and gourmet variations, which may include lobster, shrimp, calamari or salmon, with a melange of fillings. There is almost no end to the ingredients (and prices) depending on where you dine.
Tacos de pescado (fish taco) originated in Baja
What did foodie president Thomas Jefferson start? After discovering a cheesy, rich pasta dish in France. he brought it back in the early 1800s and introduced his dinner guests to a delicious new concoction loaded with rich cream, cheddar cheese and baked to a bubbly, crusty perfection. The latest from France, he undoubtedly proclaimed, along with his other creations including ice cream, french fried potatoes, fine wines and exotic fruits and vegetables, all whipped up at his estate kitchen by his French-trained chef (not to mention at the White House), and Colonial foodies dug in. For Southerners, homemade mac and cheese casserole has always been a staple on holiday dinner tables.
No question, it has come a long way, and some of its

Bookings and Arrival
The world is now plagued by electronic gadgets; be smart, make the effort to fetch your expensive Smartphone and book a reservation. Hustling for a seat at the restaurant isn’t a gracious act. Get the specifics right—date, time, no, of guests and seat preference.
Hey! Are you super chilled out, engrossed attiring or perfectly drawing your eye-liner because the reservation is done? Not a noble conduct. If it’s a 19 hrs booking make sure your watch ticks leastwise 18:45 hours (not to mention a perfectly timed watch) when you are at the eatery’s threshold with your guests. ‘Punctuality
Pumpkins have been present in North America since 7000 B.C. and probably had their beginnings in Mexico. A member of the squash family, the name means “large melon” in Greek (pepon), which the French called pompon. It is believed that early civilizations consumed only the seeds, which were roasted before eating. The flesh of the early pumpkins was bitter and more suitable for animal feed, but the pumpkins themselves made handy vessels and bowls after they were cleaned out.
Although introduced to Europe by explorer Christopher Columbus, who brought back seeds from the Americas in the late 1400s, Europeans were slow to embrace the pumpkin for human consumption, relegating it to animal fodder and food for the lower classes, eschewed by elite. Some adventurous chefs created puddings and sweet desserts from the watery pulp, but overall, pumpkin pies were not showing up on the dining tables of French or British royalty. (After all, what did those upstarts across the pond in America know about fine cuisine, anyway?)
Native Americans were growing pumpkins long before the first settlers arrived at Plymouth Rock and introduced them to this versatile squash. Easy to grow, it soon became a staple of the early pilgrims and was used for
How would you like a nice bowl of creamy ice cream topped with pepper jelly? What? Wait! Pepper jelly on ice cream? Why, yes, as it gives you a sweet-heat treat neatly atop that cool and creamy dessert. Why go for chocolate sauce when you can try pepper jelly that comes in a vast array of flavours and gives most things a kick?
Zesty, sweet, heat–that’s what pepper jelly brings to the table, or the grill, or the frozen treats, or the finger foods, or the dips, or, well, you get the idea.
Obviously the first thoughts about how to use pepper jelly will be all the ways you use regular jelly. Toast, bagels, peanut butter sandwiches, on crackers, on Melba toast, the list goes on and on. But this condiment isn’t limited to breakfast anymore. Since it’s not a new idea, people have had the time to experiment and come up with many, many uses for the stuff and they didn’t stop at breakfast, not by a long shot!
People have been mixing it into drinks like margaritas and daiquiri’s as it kicks the flavour up a notch, giving that iced drink a hint of heat that makes it all the more
We are clearly full of beans. In the U.S. alone, we consume about 8 pounds of beans annually, per capita, and the current popularity of Mexican cuisine plays no small part. The U.S. plants about 1.6 million acres a year. Worldwide production of dry beans was over 18 million metric tons in 2016, the leading producers are Myanmar (Burma), India and Brazil.
China loves their soybeans (edamame) and mung beans, the Middle East grinds garbanzos for hummus and tahini, Mexico serves up refried pinto and black beans, Italy makes their trademark minestrone with cannellini and red kidney beans, and the U.S. favors them baked, or cajun red beans and rice. While once considered an inferior food, beans are held in high favor globally. Nothing beats a hot bowl of navy bean soup, a tasty hummus spread on pita bread, a side of baked beans with barbecue or hot dogs, a dish of buttered limas with ham, or a big spicy bowl of chili.
Domesticated beans in the Americas were found in Guitarrero Cave, an archaeological site in Peru, dating back to around the second millennium BC. For centuries, they were a staple. They could be dried and carried on ships, they lasted
Every week, my wife and I decide to take time to treat ourselves to a date night, and this can include everything from miniature golf, visiting a local museum, or trying out a new restaurant. It’s a lot of fun, and we each get a kick out of it, but for some reason, as open to new things as we are, we’ve never considered the possibility of enjoying a date night at a cinema brewery.
It would make a lot of sense. Both of us enjoy a good beer every so often, and we like watching movies. Why wouldn’t a cinema brewery make the short list of places to check out? Well, truth be told, we’re creatures of habit. Our date night environments, though different every week, are still very familiar. As such, for us, going to the movies means buying a big tub of popcorn and a massive soft drink to enjoy while watching the screen for the next two hours.
You know, the more I think about it, the more I realize that a cinema brewery is actually the answer to much more than just where my wife and I should go for dinner. For instance, when it comes to
Who Needs The Best Emergency Food Kit?
Who knows what the future holds? If only we knew, day to day, what challenges would arise, we would never be caught unawares. Unfortunately, life just doesn’t work that way. Those who prefer to look forward and make preparations for the “just in case” scenarios are often painted as fringe lunatics and doomsday preppers. However, assembling the best emergency food kit for yourself or your family should be something every responsible adult takes seriously. Just a few of the “normal” situations that could arise, when having emergency rations for your family would make sense, include: loss of a job, temporary lay off, extended storm damage or power outage that traps your family at home. Or perhaps you’d just like to be a position to help another family in need, should the opportunity arise. Then there are Armageddon type scenarios that plague the mind of some, and no better way to put those fears to rest than to look ahead and prepare for the worst. Whatever your reasons for looking forward and setting up emergency rations against a difficult time ahead, we are here to help you build the very best emergency food kit for
