Fake fish_post

In every issue of BBC History Magazine, picture editor Sam Nott brings you a recipe from the past. In this article, Sam recreates fake fish – a medieval apple pie for Lent.

In the Middle Ages, people were instructed not to eat meat during Lent. Yet the ban didn’t apply to fish – in fact, Dutch gourmets enjoyed serving up ‘fish’ dishes so much that they devised this fish-shaped apple pie. With no animal products, it’s every bit as virtuous as it is delicious.

How to Make Garlic Bread / Hvordan Lage Hvitløksbrød

A great how-to recipe foound on about.com/food/How to Make Garlic Bread_italianfood.about_post

If you go to Italy expecting to find long, thin loaves of bread slathered in butter and minced garlic and baked until crisp and golden-brown around the edges, you will be disappointed; it simply does not exist there.

The closest thing in Italy would be fettunta (meaning, literally “oily slice”), which is a grilled or toasted slice of hearty, crusty bread lightly rubbed with a raw garlic clove before being sprinkled with extra-virgin olive oil and salt. That’s an Italian “garlic bread.”
