full steam ahead

BOILING The heating of liquid in which food is to be cooked, so that bubbles rise briskly and continuously to the surface. A full rolling boil is when the surface is rolling with bubbles. A rolling boil is no hotter than a gentle boil. SIMMERING The maintenance of heat in liquid that food is cooking in, so the surface shudders and bubbles rise gently to the top. STEAMING Food is placed in a steamer over boiling water (or other liquid) and covered with a tight-fitting lid. The water should not touch the steamer or the food. The steam, forced to circulate under the tight lid, cooks the food.…

3 types of steamers

1 Collapsible metal steamers are made of perforated, overlapping stainless steel petals. They’re arranged in a circle and unfold and expand to fit your pan. 2 Pierced metal steamers look like thin saucepans with holes in the bottom. They have recessed bases to fit into the top of a saucepan of a matching size. 3 Bamboo steamers are used for some Asian dishes and can be stacked so different dishes can be cooked at the same time. WHY STEAM? STEAMING IS quick, easy and a low-fat method of cooking, but the main reason to cook with steam is for the pure flavours and wonderful textures that result. Fragile food, such as fish, responds wonderfully to steaming, while classic steamed puddings are always moist and flavoursome. STEAMED VEGETABLES retain their goodness more so than boiled, as…

what’s in season? tomatoes

They also trump yellow tomatoes with extra fibre, more vitamin C and more vitamin A, which protects our eyes. But yellow tomatoes have almost double the iron, zinc, niacin (vitamin B3) and folate. Green heirloom tomatoes also stack up well next to reds, with more vitamin C and calcium, and significantly more tomatine, which may help combat breast, colon, stomach and liver cancer cells. Although cooking tomatoes reduces the vitamin C content, it helps with lycopene absorption. Tomato paste is a very rich source, especially when paired with extra-virgin olive oil, because lycopene is fat-soluble. Lycopene is associated with a lower risk of…

Use sustainable fish for this recipe; we used coley. The fish will continue to cook in the hot broth so don’t overcook it in step 2. Add noodles to soup for a more hearty meal. You could use red wine vinegar instead of sherry vinegar. For canapés, serve the gazpacho in shot glasses. The mixture can be prepared to the end of step 3 a day ahead. Chicken supremes are chicken breasts with the skin on and wing bone still attached. They are available from some butchers and supermarkets, but you may need to order them in advance. If you can’t find them, use the same weight of skin-on chicken breasts.…
