Assigment 8 : The black coffee - roasted and brewed drink

             Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant. They are seeds of coffee cherries that grow on trees in over 70 countries. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Due to its caffeine content, coffee can have a stimulating effect in humans. Today, coffee is one of the most popular beverages worldwide.

              Coffee has played an important role in many societies throughout history. In Africa and Yemen, it was used in religious ceremonies. As a result, the Ethiopian Church banned its secular consumption until the reign of Emperor Menelik II of Ethiopia. It was banned in Ottoman Turkey during the 17th century for political reasons, and was associated with rebellious political activities in Europe.

            Coffee berries, which contain the coffee seed, or "bean", are produced by several species of small evergreen bush of the genus Coffea. The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded Coffea arabica, and the 'robusta' form of the hardier Coffea canephora. The latter is resistant to the devastating coffee leaf rust (Hemileia vastatrix). Both are cultivated primarily in Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. Once ripe, coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are then roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. They are then ground and brewed to create coffee. Coffee can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways.

          An important export commodity, coffee was the top agricultural export for twelve countries in 2004, and it was the world's seventh-largest legal agricultural export by value in 2005. Some controversy is associated with coffee cultivation and its impact on the environment. Many studies have examined the relationship between coffee consumption and certain medical conditions; whether the overall effects of coffee are ultimately positive or negative has been widely disputed. However, the method of brewing coffee has been found to be important.

Assigment 7 : Cool baverages - soft drinks carbonation

             In many consumer beverages such as soft drinks, carbonation is used to give "bite." The fizzy taste can be caused by dilute carbonic acid inducing a slight burning sensation, but is never caused by the presence of bubbles. This can be shown by drinking a fizzy drink in a hyperbaric chamber at the same pressure as the beverage. This can give much the same taste as at sea level. In any case, the bubbles will be completely absent during this experience. If you were to taste a flat soda at this pressure, you might experience a much different flavor profile as carbonic acid has a low vapor pressure, and the only "bite" would come from other acids in the soda. However, in the case of Pepsi and Coca-Cola, much of the perceived bite is due to phosphoric acid, an acid not known for fizz or changes in flavor profile due to changes in pressure.

           Carbonation is sometimes used for reasons other than taste. For example, carbonation reduces the availability of free oxygen in a soda, and it can reduce the pH of a liquid by a small amount. Some carpet cleaning solutions are carbonated to more effectively dissolve organic                     
           Carbonation also has therapeutic applications in particular the delivery of vitamin supplements whereby the carbonation of the active ingredients allows for a faster and more efficient delivery of nutrients. This is achieved in two ways.

1. The solution is activated instantly and once taken orally is  
    absorbed through vessels in the mouth and tongue.

2. The remaining liquid is absorbed much quicker and efficiently in
    the gut.

           A soft drink (widely referred to as soda, pop, or soda pop) is a drink that contains a negligible amount of alcohol as compared to wines. Soft drinks are often carbonated and commonly consumed while cold. Some of the most common soft drinks include cola, flavored water, sparkling water, iced tea, sweet tea, sparkling lemonade (or other lemon-lime sodas), squash, fruit punch, root beer, orange soda, grape soda, cream soda, and ginger ale.

       The term "soft" is employed in opposition to "hard", i.e. alcoholic drinks. Generally it is also implied that the drink does not contain milk or other dairy products. Hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee, tap water, juice and milkshakes also do not fall into this classification. Many carbonated soft drinks are optionally available in versions sweetened with sugars or with non-caloric sweeteners.

             A sandwich is a food item consisting of two or more slices of bread with one or more fillings between them, or one slice of bread with a topping or toppings, commonly called an open sandwich. Sandwiches are a widely popular type of food, typically taken to work or school, or picnics to be eaten as part of a packed lunch. They generally contain a combination of salad vegetables, meat, cheese, and a variety of sauces. The bread can be used as is, or it can be coated with butter, oil, mustard or other condiments to enhance flavor and texture. They are widely sold in restaurants and cafes.

Assigment 5 : What is BTL in themes of Bacon sandwich...Anyone??

              A bacon sandwich (also bacon serine or bacon batty (UK) and bacon sanger or piece 'n' bacon (Scotland) ) is a form of sandwich made from cooked bacon between two slices of bread, usually buttered. Often some form of sauce, such as tomato ketchup or brown sauce, is included.

              Bacon sandwiches are an all-day favorite throughout the United Kingdom. Rarely found on the menus of high class restaurants, they are often served in greasy spoons. Other ingredients such as sausage, cheese, fried or scrambled eggs mushroom and baked beans are often added. A variant of the bacon is the BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato) sandwich popular in North America.

           The BLT (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) is a type of bacon sandwich. The BLT traditionally has several strips of well-cooked or even crispy bacon, leaves of lettuce (traditionally iceberg or romaine), and slices of tomato, between slices of bread (commonly toasted). Mayonnaise is the traditional condiment for the BLT. The BLT is recorded as being the second most popular sandwich in the United States, after the ham sandwich. BLT sandwiches are believed to have descended from late Victorian era tea sandwiches. Between 1930 and 1950, cookbooks typically listed cheese as an ingredient.

                The BLT became popular after World War II because of the rapid expansion of supermarkets that allowed for ingredients to be available year-round. The initials, representing "bacon, lettuce, tomato", likely began in the American restaurant industry as shorthand for the sandwich.

                Potato chips (American English and Canadian English: chips, Irish English and British English: crisps) are thin slices of potato that are deep fried or baked until crispy. Potato chips serve as an appetizer, side dish, or snack. Commercial varieties are packaged for sale, usually in bags. The basic chips are cooked and salted, and additional varieties are manufactured using various flavorings and ingredients including seasonings, herbs, spices, cheeses, and artificial additives. Chips are a predominant part of the snack food market in English-speaking countries and numerous other Western nations.

              According to snack food folklore, the original potato chip recipe was created by a chef named George Crum, the son of an African American father and Native American mother, at a restaurant called Moon's Lake House in Saratoga Spring, New York on August 24, 1853. Fed up with angered customer, some sources say it was none other than Cornelius Vanderbilt, who continued to send his fried potatoes back complaining that they were too thick and soggy, Crum decided to slice the potatoes so thin that they could not be eaten with a fork. As they could not be fried normally in a pan, he decided to stir-fry the potato slices. The customer, whoever he was, and others around him, loved the thin potatoes. Against Crum's expectation, the guest was ecstatic about the new chips and they soon became a regular item on the lodge's menu, under the name "Saratoga Chips." Crum soon opened his own restaurant across the lake and his policy of not taking reservations did not keep the customers from standing in line to taste his potato chips. They eventually became popular throughout New York and New England. One version of this story identifies Cornelius Vanderbilt as the customer who wanted them thinner.

              The popularity of potato chips quickly spread across the country, particularly in speakeasies, spawning a flurry of home-based companies. Van de Camp's Saratoga Chips opened in Los Angeles on January 6, 1915. In 1921, Earl Wise, a grocer, was stuck with an overstock of potatoes. He peeled them, sliced them with a cabbage cutter and then fried them according to his mother's recipe and packaged them in brown paper bags. Leonard Japp and George Gavora started Jays Foods in the early 1920s, selling potato chips, nuts, and pretzels to speakeasies from the back of a dilapidated truck.

             The chips were commonly prepared in someone's kitchen and then delivered immediately to stores and restaurants, or sold on the street. Shelf-life was virtually nil. Two innovations paved the way for mass production. In 1925, the automatic potato-peeling machine was invented. A year later, several employees at Laura Scudder's potato chip company ironed sheets of waxed paper into bags. The chips were hand-packed into the bags, which were then ironed shut.

          Potato chips received a further boost when the U.S. government declared them an essential food in 1942, allowing factories to remain open during World War II. In many cases, potato chips were the only ready-to-eat vegetables available. After the war, it was commonplace to serve chips with dips; French onion soup mix stirred into sour cream was a perennial favorite. Television also contributed to the chip's popularity as Americans brought snacks with them when they settled before their television sets each night.

              In 1969, General Mills and Proctor & Gamble introduced fabricated potato chips, Chipos and Pringles®, respectively. They were made from potatoes that had been cooked, mashed, dehydrated, reconstituted into dough, and cut into uniform pieces. They further differed from previous chips in that they were packaged into breakproof, oxygen-free canisters. The Potato Chip Institute (now the Snack Food Association) filed suit to prevent General Mills and Proctor & Gamble from calling their products chips. Although the suit was dismissed, the USDA did stipulate that the new variety must be labeled as "potato chips made from dried potatoes." Although still on the market, fabricated chips have never achieved the popularity of the original.

                Today, potato chips are the most popular snack in the United States. According to the Snack Food Association, potato chips constitute 40% of snack food consumption, beating out pretzels and popcorn in spite of the fact that hardly anyone thinks potato chips are nutritious. Nonetheless, the major challenge faced by manufacturers in the 1990s was to develop a tasty low-fat potato chip.

               In the 20th century, potato chips spread beyond chef-cooked restaurant fare and began to be mass produced for home consumption; Dayton, Ohio-based Mike-sell's Potato Chip Company, founded in 1910, calls itself the "oldest potato chip company in the United States". Chips sold at markets were usually sold in tins or scooped out of storefront glass bins. The early potato chip bag was wax paper with the ends ironed together. “Potato chips are thin slices of potato, fried quickly in oil and then salted”.

              A breakfast cereal (or just cereal) is a packaged breakfast food. It is sometimes eaten cold, usually mixed with milk, water or yogurt, but sometimes eaten dry. Some cereals, such as oatmeal, may be served hot as porridge. Some companies promote their products for the health benefits from eating oat-based and high-fiber cereals. Cereals may be fortified with vitamins. Some cereals are made with high sugar content. The breakfast cereal industry has gross profit margins of 40-45%, 90% penetration in some markets, and steady; continued growth throughout its history.

            Breakfast cereals have their beginnings in the vegetarian movement in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, which influenced members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the United States. The main Western breakfast at that time was a cooked breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, and beef. The first packaged breakfast cereal, Granula (named after granules) was invented in the United States in 1863 by James Caleb Jackson, operator of the Jackson Sanitorium in Dansville, New York and a staunch vegetarian. The cereal never became popular; it was far too inconvenient, as the heavy bran nuggets needed soaking overnight before they were tender enough to eat. Ferdinand Schumacher, president of the American Cereal Company, created the first commercially successful cereal made from oats; manufacturing took place in Akron, Ohio.

            Cereals, grains or cereal grains, are grasses (members of the monocot families Poaceae or Gramineae) cultivated for the edible components of their fruit seeds (botanically, a type of fruit called a caryopsis) - the endocarp, germ and bran. Cereal grains are grown in greater quantities and provide more food energy worldwide than any other type of crop; they are therefore staple crops. In their natural form (as in whole grain), they are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats and oils, and protein. However, when refined by the removal of the bran and germ, the remaining endocarp is mostly carbohydrate and lacks the majority of the other nutrients. In some developing nations, grain in the form of rice, wheat, or maize (in American terminology, corn) constitutes a majority of daily sustenance. In developed nations, cereal consumption is more moderate and varied but still substantial.

           In 1877, breakfast cereals were considerably more convenient, and, combined with clever marketing, they finally managed to catch on. John Harvey Kellogg, operator of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, invented a biscuit made of ground-up wheat, oat, and cornmeal for his patients suffering from bowel problems. The product was initially also named "Granula", but changed to "Granola" after a lawsuit. His most famous contribution, however, was an accident. After leaving a batch of boiled wheat soaking overnight and rolling it out, Kellogg had created wheat flakes. His brother Will Keith Kellogg later invented corn flakes from a similar method, bought out his brother's share in their business, and went on to found the Kellogg Company in 1906. With his shrewd marketing and advertising, Kellogg's sold their one millionth case after three years.

              We all know cereal is without doubt the most popular breakfast in America today. However, we hear little about the history of cereal and our dependence on it for our morning nutrition kick. Okay, so knowing the history of cereal will not change your life in any dramatic way, but it is an interesting history tidbit and besides that, it could be a fun conversation piece! One hundred and fifty years ago, Americans were eating pork, beef, or chicken for their breakfasts. In the 19th century, Americans ate breakfasts heavy on the meat and light on grains and fiber. In time, those interested in eating more healthy foods began a push for all Americans to eat better.
               This brought about the creation of Granula (yes, granula). This name derived from granulates, which is to form into granules or grains. In 1863 this became our first breakfast cereal and consisted of heavy nuggets made from bran, the outer husk of a grain that is removed when making flour. The cereal had to be soaked overnight before being eaten. Simply pouring milk over it was not enough to make it edible.

            The cereals we eat today grew out of a health movement that began in the 1860s. Thin, baked dough served to patients in hospitals became the interest of two men, C.W. Post and W. K. Kellogg. Both men saw a business opportunity in creating a tasty, ready-to-eat morning cereal that would be as nutritious as this baked dough was. These two men started their own companies, named them after themselves and changed the way Americans ate breakfast.

              In 1865, Mr. Post developed an item called Postum, a hot drink made of cereal. Two years later he developed Grape Nuts which we are all familiar with today.
              Mr. Kellogg developed his first cereal in 1906 and named it Kellogg's Toasted Corn Flakes. The third largest breakfast cereal producer today is General Mills. Its claim to fame began in 1924 when it created the well-known and loved Wheaties cereal.

             When cereal was first developed, it consisted of simple, flat flakes. In 1937, General Mills invented the "puffing gun" which heated grains such as rice until they puffed up into crunchy little balls. The very first "puffed" cereal to hit the marked was Kix. After Kix hit the market, a new process began to make cereal called shredding. The results were the creation of the well-known cereal, Shredded Wheat. Also incorporated was the process of extruding the flakes into pellets, which brought about the creation of cereals like Captain Krunch.

               By the middle 1950's, cereal manufacturers discovered new customers -- kids. Adding sugar to cereal became popular along with prizes in the boxes and the introduction of cartoon characters such as the Trix Rabbit and Tony the Tiger. Some of the oldest cereal characters are the Rice Krispies elves, Snap, Crackle and Pop. Snap worked alone when first introduced and added to the cereal box. Crackle and Pop joined him a few years later.

           A pancake is a thin, flat cake prepared from a batter and cooked on a hot griddle or fryin pan. Most pancakes are quick breads; some use a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Most pancakes are cooked one side on a griddle and flipped partway through to cook the other side.

             An American or Canadian pancakes (sometimes called hotcakes, griddlecakes, or flapjacks in the U.S.) are Scotch pancakes which contain a raising agent such as baking powder; proportions of eggs, flour, and milk or buttermilk create a thick batter. Sugar and spices such as cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg are added. This batter is ladled or poured onto a hot surface, and spreads to form a circle about ¼ or ⅓ inch (1 cm) thick. The raising agent causes bubbles to rise to the uncooked side, when the pancake is flipped. These pancakes, very light intexture, are served at breakfast topped with maple syrup, butter, peanut butter, jelly, jam, fruit or honey. In the Southern United States, cane syrup and molasses have also been common toppings. Some pancake recipes call for yogurt to give the pancakes a semi-thick, relatively moist consistency. As one of humankind's oldest forms of bread, the versatile pancake has hundreds of variations and is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner and as appetizers, entrĂ©es and desserts. Pancakes begin as a batter that is poured into rounds, either on a griddle or in a skillet, and cooked over high heat. Depending on the region, pancakes may be served at any time, with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, fruit, syrup or meat.

           A flapjack is a thick small pancake, generally around 10 cm in diameter. Flapjacks are often served in a stack with syrup and butter, which can be accompanied with bacon. The terms pancake and flapjack are often confused and today in the US are nearly synonymous. The Oxford English Dictionary records the word flapjack as being used as early as the beginning of the 17th century, referring to a flat tart or pan-cake. Shakespeare refers to flapjack in Pericles, Prince of Tyre, but this is one of the many anachronisms in his historical plays and does not suggest that he thought it was a middle eastern dish, merely a common English dessert of the time:

"Come, thou shant go home, and we'll have flesh for holidays, fish for fasting-days, and moreo'er puddings and flap-jacks, and thou shalt be welcome." Act II Scene I

The word elements: flap- meaning a tossed mixture and jack, an uncertain word suggesting a variety, imply any ingredients could be called a flapjack
