“I think nothing is more exquisite than beef in Kummel, garnished with slices of banana stuffed with Gruyere or pureed sardines with Camembert or whipped cream with tomato sprinkled with brandy or a chicken with lily of the valley.” Chef Jules Maincave (1910) quoted in ‘Larousse Gastronomique’


1822 Charles Graham of New York received a patent for artificial teeth.

1839 Famous Food Fights:
The Great Pastry War ended this day. A brief conflict began on November 30, 1838, between Mexico and France caused by a French pastry cook who claimed that some Mexican Army soldiers had damaged his restaurant. The Mexican government refused to pay for damages. Several other countries had asked the Mexican government for similar claims in the past due to civil unrest in Mexico, without any resolution. France decided to do something about it, and sent a fleet to Veracruz and fired on the fortress outside the harbor. They occupied the city on April 16, 1838, and through the mediation of Great Britain were promised payment of 600,000 pesos for the damages. They withdrew on March 9, 1839.

DID YOU KNOW? Food Trivia
Cocoa butter is the edible vegetable fat from cocoa beans, extracted from the cocoa beans during the process of making chocolate and cocoa powder. Cocoa butter has only a mild chocolate flavor and aroma.
   Cocoa butter is one of the ingredients used to make real chocolate, it is gives chocolate the ability to remain solid at room temperature, yet melt easily in the mouth.
   Cocoa butter is one of the most stable fats known, containing natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity and give it a storage life of 2 to 5 years. It is used for its smooth texture in foods (including chocolate) and in cosmetics and soaps.

Whenever I utter the word "exercise" I will rinse my mouth with chocolate!

Don't know if I'd like that, but I do like Münsterkäse mit Kümmel (cheese with muenster/caraway seed cheese).

A Buffalo, NY staple! Delicious - with plenty of jus and horseradish.

We had some on the aforementioned croque monsieur yesterday that I liked. Spousal, who had a bad encounter with meerrettich soss once was not as appreciative. I thought it really sparked ham and cheese.
