salad dressing

Salad dressings have been favoured by humans for thousands of years. Around 2000 years ago, the Babylonians used oil and vinegar to dress their greens. Ancient Egyptians drew on their wide trade links to make dressings using oil, vinegar and Asian spices. Over the centuries, the courts of Europe developed increasingly elaborate salads and always topped them with a dressing. Henry IV of England’s favourite salad was a mixture of boiled diced potatoes and sardines with a herb-based dressing. Mary, Queen of Scots enjoyed boiled celery root, lettuce, truffles, chervil and slices of hard-boiled egg topped with a creamy mustard dressing. As well as adding flavour, we know that the oils used in dressings enhance the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as A and E from salad vegetables.…

Legend has it that tortellini was inspired by the gods. The story goes that tired after a day of battle, the gods Venus and Zeus had arrived in a small tavern in a town near Bologna. After eating a large meal and getting slightly drunk, the two gods decided to go upstairs to bed. The innkeeper was so entranced by them that he spied through their keyhole but all he saw was Venus’s navel. The vision enraptured him and he rushed to his kitchen to make a pasta in her navel’s shape: tortellini. A less romantic story is that in order to make a pasta stuffed with a filling, someone in Bologna in around 1570 decided to fold their pasta around their finger, thus creating tortellini. Either way, tortellini is…

Friends give you so much. A good friend offers support, shared enjoyment, wise words and silent empathy. Perhaps more important than all of these vital things in life is that friends can also offer fresh perspective. It’s easy to become locked in the repetitive loop of your own thinking, but friends can help break you out of thought traps. Sometimes it can be an honest opinion that a friend gives which broadens your view, or on other occasions it can simply be the way they live their life that enlightens you. I was chatting with a friend I’ve known since schooldays recently. To protect the innocent, I’ll change names here so let’s call him Bodkin. As conversation lulled, Bodkin drew a deep breath in the way people do when they are…

rediscovering your roots

The first carrots were not the proud orange conical beauties we mostly see today. Dating back to 10th-century Persia, around the Himalayas in what is now Afghanistan, the humble carrot began its journey. Back then, carrots grew longer and thinner, and were purple or white in colour. Along the way, a happy mutation resulted in yellow and red varieties, which became popular as they were sweeter and meant that cooking with them didn’t end in a purple hue. The story goes that in the 17th century, patriotic Dutch carrot growers crossed a red and a yellow variety in an attempt to create the perfect orange carrot as a tribute to William of Orange, who led the Dutch to independence. On a side note, I personally cannot think of any greater honour…
