How To Make Halayang Ube, A Sweet Purple Yam Dessert from the Philippines
I lived in the same house for most of my childhood in North Jersey, as did a majority of the neighbors on my block. We played together, walked to school together, attended each other's baptisms and birthdays and Independence Day barbecues, and pretty much grew together like family. My Cuban neighbors taught me how to dance merengue. On Sundays, my Syrian neighbors often took us with them to their Assyrian Orthodox church. And my Korean neighbors introduced us to Lunar New Year, decorating their front step every February. My Filipino neighbors, however, were the ones who always had the best parties. The adults would be dancing in the back yard and singing hours of karaoke, while the kids all crowded around the living room couch while we took turns playing Sonic The Hedgehog. When it was time to eat, there would be giant trays of lumpia, pancit canton, and on the most special occasions, lechon - a whole roasted pig. All of the food would be seriously amazing, but my favorite was the halayang ube, a sweet and sticky cake made with sweetened condensed milk and the pulp of ube, a type of purple yam. Fast-forward to July 4th,1999, my last day living in New Jersey. We had a huge neighborhood party complete with fireworks and food and all of the kids on the block playing games together. When it was time for everyone to say goodbye, one of the things that Maggie, the mother of the Filipino family, did was give my mother a small package of purple yam ube powder and the halayang ube recipe because she knew it was my favorite. To this day, I really, really miss Maggie, her family, and the years we spent together, so when I am able to make halayang ube, I can't help but feel incredibly sentimental. To make this recipe, which calls for actual ube yams, you may have to go to a Filipino market or a grocery store that offers a large amount of Asian products. Contrary to what many believe, taro root and ube are not actually the same, so make sure that if you're buying frozen or powdered product to substitute, you're still buying the right one. Also, the picture has the halayang ube piled into small jars, but most people simply spread the halayang on a baking dish or plate. It may look a little messy, but it tastes great! ------------------------------------------------------------------ Halayang Ube (or Ube Halaya) 1 1/2 cups grated cooked purple yam 1 cup evaporated milk or (traditionally) coconut milk 1 14oz can condensed milk a pinch of salt 1 tablespoon butter/margarine plus extra for smoothing the cooked yam 1. Wash the purple yam thoroughly, and peel and slice it into big chunks. Boil until tender. 2. In a deep pot or saucepan, combine all the ingredients except the butter or margarine. Stir to combine well and on medium high heat, cook until the mixture thickens. You have to keep stirring while cooking to avoid lumps. It will get harder to stir as it cooks. 3. Halfway through the cooking, add a tablespoon of butter. Mix well and continue cooking until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan/pot and when you get some, it doesn’t fall off the spoon. 4. Transfer the sweetened purple yam into well-buttered dish/dishes. Add a pat of butter on top of the mixture and using the back of a spoon, level and smooth the purple yam.
Coffee Culture In 2020
Like most societies, coffee culture is the same truly. A gathering of individuals united by a typical intrigue. What preferred spot over a coffee shop. There is consistently a buzz, and hive of movement. It draws in here and there, such huge numbers of similar individuals, and in different ways such an assortment. From businesspeople, to housewives, understudies to instructors. Several years prior, they were mainstream meeting places for craftsmen. A couple of years back, Wine Masters were springing up all over the place, and now the most recent pattern is by all accounts turning into a Barrister. We were lucky enough to have the option to talk with Winston, one of the top cutting-edge Barristers in the Country. Nowadays regardless of where I am, or what I am doing, coffee is by all accounts shouting out at me! Coffee culture, coffee culture! The vast majority have coffee making machines, and there are shops committed to selling just coffee. We are so spoilt for decision, that it is hard to tell which coffee to drink, when, where and why? I am going to a Barristers course right on time one month from now, and will be back with loads more data on what all the diverse coffee beans are, and how to pick between them. In the interim, not secure with you, yet I am getting very confounded between the various approaches to drink coffee. Gone are the days when we just had the decision between a coffee and a cappuccino. Worse still, when I grew up, we either had moment or permeated coffee. Presently we have an entire scope of approaches to drink our coffee: - Latte: A coffee blended in with a foamed milk froth. - Americana: Made by adding boiling water to a cup with a tot of coffee in it. - Iced Coffee: Chilled coffee with a touch of vanilla frozen yogurt. - Cappuccino: some coffee canvassed in a layer of foamed milk froth. - Skinny Cappuccino. Equivalent to a cappuccino, yet made with fat free milk. - Flat white: some coffee with milk. - Espresso: Extremely solid, and thick, with "crema" (coffee froth on the top). Consequently, bistro crema being an elective name for an Italian coffee. - Macchiato: some foamed milk, topped off with a coffee. - Moccachino: A bistro latte with chocolate added to it. - Frappe. A coffee with ice, served dark or white. What's more, to make coffee considerably additionally luring, numerous Countries around the globe have their own unique coffees, for example, Caffe Au Lait: France Egg Coffee: Vietnam Turkish Coffee: Turkey Bistro Bombon: Spain Bistro Cubana: Cuba Wiener: Vienna Palazzo: USA Caffe De Ola: Mexico To finish it off we have alcoholic coffee drinks, similar to an Irish coffee, Bavarian coffee, Café imperial, Kalua coffee, and even coffee mixers. I need to state that my most loved is as yet a cappuccino. It must be made with the best quality coffee beans, and overflowing over the highest point of the cup with froth. In the event that you can persuade me in any case, if it's not too much trouble share with me the manner in which you love your coffee. Winston's Interview.. How could you engage with coffee. How did everything start? Without romanticizing excessively, there was a protest in my neighborhood paper about the terrible coffee served in my town. That was around 5 years back. In the wake of perusing that I began tasting various coffees attempting to make sense of what a decent mug of coffee truly was. This in the end drove me to Origin Coffee Roasting where I did a barista course while concentrating in 2013. I worked low maintenance at a roaster in Somerset West and a market in Woodstock until I finished my examinations in June 2014. I began working all day at Origin in August 2014. What makes you keep on filling in as a barista? Is the activity dull? No it's not tedious. It might appear that route in light of the fact that, on the far edge of the bar, it would seem that we're simply pouring coffee consistently yet that is a long way from it. We're utilizing various coffees consistently so there's a great deal of tasting included, the climate is continually changing which implies the coffee pours contrastingly for the duration of the day so we need to work appropriately, we meet various individuals consistently, face various difficulties every day and so forth. So distant from tedious. What's more, that is actually why I keep on filling in as a barista. Where do you discover your motivation? I discover my motivation by taking a gander at all the individuals engaged with the coffee cycle. From the rancher, to the green coffee purchaser, the roaster, barista lastly the customer. To realize that I assume a job in this procedure gives me the motivation to attempt my hardest to serve the most ideal mug of coffee. To equity to the individuals who have had their influence before me. What is the new "in" in the present coffee industry? To be straightforward I believe that quality has gotten the new "in" in the coffee business. Increasingly more bistro are attempting to deliver better coffee, which makes things extremely serious as far as quality. This drives the business a positive way. More bistros are additionally starting to utilize option or channel blend techniques like the aeropress and v60 pourover to make channel coffee. This is best delighted in dark without sugar to guarantee that the disturbances and attributes of the coffee can be gotten. What sort of coffee do you/dislike to make I like creation a wide range of coffee. There is coffee based coffees like your run of the mill Americano and latte and there is channel blend like the French press or aeropress. I can't state I loathe causing particular kinds of coffees however I to do some of the time wince when clients need a surprising request that removes the accentuation of the coffee. For instance an enormous milk based with a solitary shot and soya milk will totally dominate the kind of the coffee. Be that as it may, toward the day's end coffee is emotional and we can't mention to the clients what it is they like or abhorrence, we can just offer guidance and ideally direct them. What is the most tedious coffee to make? I'd state the channel techniques we use in our bistro is the most tedious. The French press takes around 5 minutes to finish. While coffee based takes approximately 2 minutes. What would you be able to inform me regarding Coffee Culture? Coffee Culture. Where do I start? Well right now in the coffee business (around the world) we're encountering what we call "Third wave." "First wave" would be characterized as the manner in which our folks might've had their coffee. Moment coffee or a dull broiled Italian mix in the family unit channel machine. There was no genuine coffee or bistro culture. At that point, with the appearance of Starbucks and other business coffee chains, the "Second wave" of coffee people developed. Individuals turned out to be progressively mindful of what they were drinking and the pattern of takeaway coffee based beverages like lattes and cappuccinos began. At the present time we're encountering "Third wave" where individuals in the coffee have gotten progressively aware of the nature of the coffee they purchase. A few organizations going the extent that building up direct exchange with ranchers so they add to improving cultivating strategies, sending out and so forth. Green coffee beans are cooked with accuracy and a ton of care is taken in getting ready both coffee based and channel drinks. Alongside this, shoppers are additionally aware of the nature of coffee in bistros. Buyers realize what they need when purchasing coffee, more so than previously. What's more, they are additionally significantly progressively taught. Due to this you discover more bistros opening and more purchasers visiting bistros hence a developing bistro culture. Greater than previously. Enlighten me concerning the rivalries you have won and what lies ahead for you. Most as of late I've won the South African National Aeropress title. The aeropress is essentially a separating gadget used to make coffee. What's more, I won the national rivalry so I'll be contending in the World Aeropress titles in Dublin, Ireland in June.

The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
Awesome Way to Create a Successful Restaurant Recipes Menu
Add to your restaurant’s appeal by ensuring you’ve got a good menu. Does it feature the dishes that your restaurant is known for? Does it reflect the theme and ambiance as well as the style of your place? Some think that recipes for restaurant menus should be formal, with limited items on the menu rendered in a fancy font. Others go with the ultra-casual approach as they just jot down the specials on a chalkboard and let the customers point to their choices. Both work, though, depending on the situation. But if you’re looking for ways to improve your customer’s dining experience, then providing a good menu is a step in the right direction. Here are some of the best ways to pull this off. Understand the Link What’s the connection between the restaurant kitchen and the menu? Once you identify that, figuring out the rest will be easy. Start with the size and setup of your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen, then you obviously will have a smaller menu. However, that doesn’t mean having a bigger kitchen means you can have a menu with over a hundred items on offer. Know What to Avoid Steer clear of fonts that are hard to read, no matter how artistic or cute they may be. Also, if the description is overly long, that’s going to leave your customers confused. It’s best to keep the description simple and straight to the point so people know what they’re ordering. Make sure you create the right impression by putting your best foot—or food—forward in your menu. Price It Right If the items are too pricey, that may scare away potential customers. That doesn’t mean you should shy away from putting expensive items on your menu. Just make sure they’re an excellent match for your restaurant. One tip that can help is to put expensive items side by side with affordable options. Spread them apart in the menu, so customers get to view options that are well within their price range. Also, if you're going to put up seasonal items on your menu, make sure you use the market price. Create Special Menus Many restaurants provide customers with different menus for special occasions, like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. The good thing about offering up a menu like this is that it limits the food items available at such a busy time, which makes it easier for the kitchen to prepare and whip out the orders in the shortest time possible. Think About the Cost It's fun to be creative with your menu by putting out food that reflects your ideas of what playful or fun should be. However, always temper your wishes by thinking about the cost. Using expensive ingredients that may drain your budget dry may not be ideal. Look for substitutes that are equally tasty and that still work. Add or change items on your menu, too. Don’t be afraid to experiment. If you keep on improving your menu, your customers will always have something to look forward to.
