#AceRecipeNews – Homemade airy farm bread // FoodbyM | Miranda #AceFoodDesk reports


My recipe for homemade farm bread is an airy bread made from just fine wheat flour, cooking oil, yeast, water and salt. Farm bread fits very well next to soups and salads, but is almost unbeatable freshly baked in the evening with some butter and brown cheese on.

You spend just over 2,5 hours on these delicious airy farm breads.

You need:

  • 1 kg/ 2.2 pound of wheat flour
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 50 grams/ 1.7 oz of yeast
  • 6 deciliters/ 2.5 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • organic sunflower seeds
  • black sesame seeds

Here’s what you do:

Put flour in a bowl and crumble in cooking oil and yeast. Mix in the salt and add lukewarm water.
Knead dough well by hand or with a kitchen machine. Start at a low speed and gradually increase if you use a kitchen appliance. The dough is completely kneaded when smooth and releases the edge of the bowl.
Cover the baking bowl with plastic or a cloth and raise to double size, approx. 45 minutes.
Pour the dough out onto the lightly floured baking table and divide into medium sized balls, then take out the rolling pin and roll out/ form the breads into oblong or round breads. Place the bread on a baking tray covered with baking paper or in greased bread forms.
Raise the bread rolls for another 20 minutes, then take a knife and gently cut a line in the middle of each bread, then you can also gently cut a few lines on each side of the long line in the center of the breads. It should look like leaves before brushing with water and adding sunflower kernels and black sesame seeds over.
Bread is baked in the middle of the oven at 200 ° C / 392 °F for approx. 30 minutes.

Welcome to our Christmas dinner special: We’ll be talking about the food science of traditional Chri stmas dinner cuisine. Have you ever thought about the science behind your Christmas dinner? Well read this g reat article from IFST #AceFoodDesk reports


The food science of Christmas Pudding

Christmas Pudding History 101

The Christmas pudding goes back all the way to medieval England, when it was known as ‘plum pudding’. There are no plums in the pudding but the word ‘plum’ was used as a term for raisins in the pre-Victorian era. There was a custom that pudding should be “made with 13 ingredients to represent Jesus and His Disciples and that every member of the family should take turns to stir the pudding with a wooden spoon from east to west, in honour of the Wise Men”. It’s traditionally made with a mixture of dried mixed fruits, alcohol, suet (or more recently butter) eggs, flour and fragrant spices, and is steamed for a long time.

Butter or Suet?

Most recipes you’ll find, deviate from the norm and use butter in the pudding instead of suet. However, suet was traditionally used because of its high boiling point. Suet is a white, solid fat which is found around the kidneys of cows and sheep. Suet has a higher boiling point than butter, which means it does not melt until the batter has cooked and has begun to set, then the suet begins to melt creating tiny holes which make the pudding lighter in texture. Butter melts at a significantly lower boiling point which causes the pudding to be heavier and greasier than when using suet. A vegetarian alternative to suet is vegetable shortening. This is because it has a similar boiling point to suet in the steamed pudding, but it can change the taste.

What’s in a flambé?

One of the most important Christmas traditions is the lighting of the Christmas pudding, also known as a flambé. When warm brandy is lit over the pudding, it burns and evaporates the water from the brandy, this also prevents it from overheating and getting burnt. The blue flame is created by the reaction of ethanol (the alcohol in brandy) vapour and oxygen from the air. The flame doesn’t reach the pudding, as it is the ethanol vapour that is burning, not the pudding itself.

A 50-year-old Christmas pudding?!

In 2017, scientists claimed that is was safe to consume a 48-year-old Christmas pudding. Scientists at the University of Nottingham spoke to a popular food programme about this aged Christmas pudding. Dr Tania Perehinec, tested the pudding rigorously to test whether any bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella grew. The tests showed that yeasts and/or moulds were absent from the pudding, and the laboratory tests showed that no bacteria grew in the pudding, surprisingly. This is because bacteria cannot survive in a dry Christmas pudding. Although it may appear to be moist, the water content is bound to the other food components in the pudding, making them unavailable to bacteria to react with, this is also known as the water activity (Aw) in food.

In addition to this, the pudding was boiled vigorously for several hours before it was stored. The high heat from the boiling denatured all the bacteria in the cooking process. The bacteria couldn’t survive such high temperatures. The pudding was also sealed from air, in a cool place which also helped protect it from the elements and/or conditions that could help bacteria grow.

So, now you’ve learned a lot about Christmas Pudding, we have come to the end of our Christmas Dinner series, we hope you’ve enjoyed learning about the food science behind each Christmas Dinner favourite.

FEATURED: Deep and crisp and vegan: now meat-free festive fare goes exotic as for years, a plant-based diet was seen as dull: But as more and more people embrace it, food stores are upping their game heres the providers of the fare according to the Observer #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodReport – Dec.08: When Tony Bishop-Weston turned vegan 25 years ago, Christmas dinner was a challenge. “I thought I’d do a moussaka, as there were 14 of us,” he said. “I got the last aubergine in the village – there was only one. And that was a bit wrinkly.”………..Everything has changed since then, especially this year, thanks to the flexitarian boom. Vegans who once relied on ingenuity and Linda McCartney’s sausages can now pick from a cornucopia of Christmas treats, because half the UK population is cutting back on meat or giving it up, according to market analysts Mintel. Aldi’s vegan wreath centrepiece of chestnut mushroom, butternut squash and fruit stuffing in handmade pastry.

Christmas food and drink 2019

Supermarkets have responded by boosting their plant-based ranges for Christmas: In 2018, Morrisons sold eight Christmas vegan items – now it offers 45, with three centrepieces, including a layered vegetable tart and a creamy mushroom Wellington.

“ Waitrose has doubled its Christmas range from six to 12 products, adding the “root en croute” – a confection of roasted carrots – to the “beet” Wellington that was so popular last Christmas that it became a year-round line. Tesco sells six vegan centrepieces, up from four, including a sweet potato and red cabbage Christmas log, and its Christmas report says that a third of families will have some sort of vegetarian or vegan option this year.Marks & Spencer says there has been a “considerable increase” in its vegan Christmas offerings this year, and Aldi has a large range of vegan party food, crowned by a Christmas pastry wreath filled with chestnut mushrooms and butternut squash “

A year ago, the only option in Iceland was a less than festive “no turkey” meal for one, but now it offers five vegan lines, including the “no moo chocolate snowflakes” mousse, caramel and biscuit dessert.

“It’s just been amazing. There’s anything you can think of,” said Bishop-Weston, reeling off a list of vegan “cheeses” available – gorgonzola, goat’s cheese, brie and camembert – that have nothing to do with goats, sheep or cows.

Of all the food products launched in 2019 in the UK, 24% have claimed to be vegan – more than anywhere else in the world

“I’m really struggling to find anything to moan about now,” joked the vegan chef and cookery writer. “There’s five blue cheeses. A guy in France is making smoked salmon with pea protein and algae – Odontella. It’s got the same mouthfeel, the same flavours – it’s amazing.”

It has been an extraordinary year for veganism, which has seen “an explosion in attention”, according to Ryan Whittaker, consumer analyst at GlobalData. “Waterstones has 3,545 book titles with the word ‘vegan’ in them available for sale, as of October 2019, compared with 944 in August 2018,” he said.

That attention from consumers has been followed by retailers. In the first 11 months of the year, the Vegan Society registered 14,262 new products under its Vegan Trademark scheme, twice as many as last year and a huge rise compared with the 5,919 that came out in 2015.

In fact, 24% of all food products launched in 2019 in the UK have claimed to be vegan, according to Edward Bergen, global food and drink analyst at Mintel, the market research firm. It’s a huge jump on the 8% of launches in 2015, and more than anywhere else in the world.

“This whole trend isn’t about the vegans, although they’re loving the journey,” Bergen said. “It’s about the consumers reducing the amount of meat they eat.”

It’s likely that more people will swap meat canapés for things such as M&S’s No-Pork Pigs in Duvets, or add a vegan option alongside meat at large gatherings.

“In a best-case scenario, it would be good to cook food from scratch, but the increasing numbers of vegan products available makes it easier for people to make vegan choices on Christmas Day,” said Heather Russell, a dietitian for the Vegan Society.

People who do want to cook from scratch their vegan Christmas dinner should think about colour, according to Bishop-Weston. “I like to do individual centrepieces because, no matter how beautiful you make it in the middle of the table, once you start cutting into it, it’s difficult to still be beautiful on the plate,” he said.

“You can make a little cracker out of filo pastry and you put some holly leaf and cranberries on top, and you tie the cracker with chives or slices of leaf.

“But if I’m doing a big centrepiece, I often do a pie or Wellington and try to make it pretty by putting layers in, something like kale and cranberry or red cabbage. You’ve got those Christmas colours coming through, so, when you slice it, it’s still looking pretty on the plate.”
