In-depth article on the science of baking a cake.

THE RED JUICE IN RAW MEAT IS NOT BLOOD

Nearly all blood is removed from meat during slaughter, which is also why you don’t see blood in raw “white meat”; only an extremely small amount of blood remains within the muscle tissue when you get it from the store. Read whole article: raw meat

FOOD PAIRING

This website should excite foodies everywhere. Discover which food and beverages can be combined based on their flavor profile and find out how you can replace one food product by a combination of others. Learn combination you never knew possible.

Watch this video of Bernard Lahousse who explains in this video for TEDx Flanders the importancy of flavors, and shows us how food or beverages can be combined with each other, like oysters and kiwi and oysters and chocolate. Pretty interesting!

FOOD BUDDHA TV SHOW

A new show on TLC called Food Buddha follows Chef Rodelio Aglibot (of Chicago’s Sunda restaurant) as he visits three restaurants in a single city and orders one of everything from the menu.

The look on the chef’s faces when they learn he wants one of everything is priceless.

The show airs in two half-hour episodes Monday at 10 & 10:30pm ET/PT. Here is a preview of the series…

CARMELIZED ONION AND FRESH RICOTTA PIZZA

HERBED RICOTTA TART

SALMON WITH A TWIST

ROASTED RED PEPPER, BASIL AND PROVOLONE SANDWICHES

BAKED RADISH CHIPS

Turn a bland vegetable into something tasty.

PARMIGIANO REGGIANO SAVORY FRENCH TOAST

WATERMELON GAZPACHO

We recently tried this as a restaurant but it was ruined by the addition of cilantro. Half the population thinks cilantro taste like soap. You don’t believe me, Google it. Personally, ginger taste like soap to me. Cilantro just taste horrid. This recipe however thankfully does not call for it and if it did we’d omit it.

SOY BLUEBERRY ICE CREAM

PASSION FRUIT BUBBLE GUM TEA

We hope you enjoyed this edition of Friday Food Links and Recipes. Here’s last weeks edition if you missed it. Maybe you can make one of these dishes for Dad on Father’s Day.
