It is time we talked about what #herbs & #spices the #AncientGreeks used in their #Cooking ...Of course I'll delve into the #AncientRome as well, as we have many surviving texts especially from book such as #Apicius ... Let's get talking! 1/n
We have a few surviving fragments of texts from Archestratus. He was a Sicilian Greek, who circumnavigated the world to satisfy his hunger. From Sicily to the furthermost eastern point of Black Sea, he travelled to find out about the specialities of all the cities in between. 2/n
His chief concern was to find the true flavour of fresh produce, chosen in the right place at the right time of the year.
He was the first #gourmant in that sense. We know that much! He preferred the simpler sauces and only 2-3 herbs or spices as ingredients in his dishes 3/n

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

About four or five years ago I traveled on assignment to the Azores, a volcanic archipelago off the coast of Portugal, and purchased a clay cooking pot in San Miguel. I finally decided it’s time to use it, so today I’ll be documenting the process for how to season it.
I’ve never actually seasoned an unglazed clay pot from scratch before and am figuring this out using advice from the internet and @davidleite. The first step is to immerse it in water for several hours. #claypot #cooking #cookware
A correction: this pot is actually from the Azorean island of Terceira. It was made by Olaria de S. Bento who I was told is one of very few people still producing pots like this by hand. #azores #claypot #terceira tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Rev…
