#Chefs-tip “Eating Oatmeal Gives You Energy and is Slow Burning”


Oatmeal with Blueberries

#AceFoodNews says very few people know that one of the best all round and full of nutrition foods, is simply      “Oats or Oatmeal” this food or breakfast cereal mixed with other health giving foods, can set you up for the day. As it will make you feel warm, content and not hungry for many an hour, and with people on the go in today’s busy world it is perfect for any busy person, and as a chef l eat it daily together with fruit, nuts or a combination of both.

During my recent search and trawling through of my emails l came up with this simply recipe from my friend George Mateljan of the W.H Food foundation who as you know l post a number of his tips and recipes. As to know what is inside a recipe is important, but knowing what the various ingredients ,there health giving properties as a chef working with elderly and disabled person’s is equally important.

I never malign anyone but have always said the difference between a chef and a cook ,however good is simply knowledge of their ingredients but also knowing the science of cooking, and nothing can replace experience.

In this recipe it uses water, you can use milk and either full-fat, low-fat or semi-fat and of course for a special treat add a little cream, l have even tried Creme Fraiche But just good olde porridge {as we call it in the UK} Porridge (also spelled porageporrigeparritch, etc.) is a dish made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped cereal in watermilk, or both, with optional flavourings, usually served hot in a bowl or dish. It may be sweetened with sugar, or served as a savoury dish. The term is usually used for oat porridge (porridge oats); there are similar dishes made with other grains or legumes, but they often have other unique names, such as polentagrits or kasha. with milk and honey will do just the trick. Either way just enjoy it!

Bon Appetit says may have just raised the bar on Dorito recipes forever with its video and accompanying instructions for Dorito Bread and Dorito Compound Butter. We all know Doritos look great in many forms, but this bread and butter will be hard to beat.

 

With some serious guitar in the background, the video makes this awesome creation look as rock and roll as it sounds. Andy Rapoport, brother of Bon Appetit’s Editor-In-Chief Adam, wanted to pair “man’s most basic sustenance” — bread — “with an ingredient most modern, heavily processed, and addictive: the Dorito.” We think he succeeded with amazing, Dorito-orange flying colors. #profitb4people
