Variation For pickled carrots and radishes, cover 75 g carrots julienned and radishes fine slices with a hot, non-cooking brine made of 90 ml of water, 90 ml of vinegar, 2. Vitamin C for your immune system, bones and connective tissue, Vitamin B for blood formation, potassium for lowering blood sugar, pectins and bitter compounds as appetite suppressants, antioxidants, but no cholesterol or fats: all this makes citrus fruit quite appealing, especially in winter. Those who prefer citrus in liquid form should in any event drink it freshly-pressed and unsweetened, rather than from concentrates.
Studies from Brazil have found that the antioxidant secondary plant substances flavonoids in citrus fruits can help to delay and alleviate "oxidative stress" cell damage and chronic inflammation , heart and liver damage, and diabetes caused by obesity.
Those who consume a lot of fat and carbohydrates should supplement their diets with citrus fruits. But be careful, because citrus fruits should not be consumed by those taking heart medications and cholesterol-lowering drugs Many people who believe they have citrus fruit intolerance, have simply been eating them wrong. Citrus fruits are very quickly digested, and are therefore best eaten alone and preferably on an empty stomach — for example as appetisers or snacks, so that they are not "held up" by other foods that need more time.
This will help prevent flatulence and discomfort. Citrus fruits combine well with green leafy vegetables, for example in smoothies. Don't pull all of it off! Look for organically-grown citrus, otherwise you'll often be eating pesticides, fungicides and waxy sealants along with the fruit. When consuming citrus from conventional farms, be sure to wash your hands after peeling, and don't eat the rind!
The word "orange" comes from "naranga" or "naranja", which means "fragrance. In tropical areas, oranges remain green year round. If you see a few green spots, this doesn't mean that the fruit is unripe or sour. In fact, the lovelier and brighter in colour the fruit, the higher the likelihood that it's been treated with chemical substances. Melt the butter and stir in the speculoos crumbs. Spread the baking rings on a baking sheet covered with parchment.
Remove from the oven and let the base cool down in the rings. For the cream: 1 Peel and fillet the oranges, collecting the juice. Cut about half of the fillets into smaller pieces. Soak the gelatin in some cold water. Heat the orange juice and dissolve the gelatin in it, then mix with some cream cheese and add to the rest of the cream cheese. Store in the fridge until the cream starts to set about 20 minutes. Add the filling to the baking rings on top of the speculoos base. Chill for at least 2 hours until the cream is firm.
Then decorate with the orange fillets. Heat some jam with liqueur or 1 tbsp of water and brush onto the orange fillets. Mix in a bowl with 1 pinch of salt and knead for 5 minutes with your hands preferably with disposable gloves. Squeeze the juice from the remaining mandarin. Mix the juice with vinegar, maple syrup, sunflower and walnut oil and pepper. Add to the red cabbage, mix well and leave to infuse for at least 10 minutes.
Make sure they do not burn. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. Serve with the roasted walnuts. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Beat on high speed for about 5 minutes with an electric hand mixer until soft peaks form. Mix in the vanilla sugar, then cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve. Slice 4 oranges into 5 mm thick rounds, cut the peel and white pith away from the flesh, and put in a bowl.
Add the reserved zest, the honey, and the vanilla seeds. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add the agar, bring to the boil again and let simmer for 2 minutes. Then remove from heat, add the oranges slices, and set aside. Its high fibre keeps you feeling full longer, aids digestion, and helps prevent intestinal ailments. It supplies your body with Vitamin A, B , C and K as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and manganese.
Cabbage cleanses the blood, promotes pancreatic health, eases symptoms of gout and rheumatism, and helps fight infections and tumours. Fresh cabbage juice heals gastric ailments with an impressive rate of success. To avoid gas, one should first cook cabbage briefly in salt water, drain this water off, and finish the cooking process with fresh water.
Ginger, caraway, anise and fennel seeds also help prevent flatulence. They can either be eaten with the meal or cooked in herb sachets to be removed after cooking. Cabbage's aroma comes from the sulphurous molecules in the vegetable. These have an antibiotic, detoxifying effect. Brussels sprouts should be firmly closed and not yield to pressure. The leaves of white cabbage, red cabbage and Savoy should be fresh and crispy. Remove and discard the outermost leaves.
Cabbage will rot more quickly and lose its taste when kept sealed in plastic. When cut, it will keep less than a week. Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kohlrabi and other cabbage varieties can be kept for several days in the refrigerator. Nearly all types of cabbage freeze well if blanched and plunged beforehand. For Brussels sprouts, first cut crosswise into the stubs. White cabbage can also be frozen raw. Here is an old home remedy which has been successfully applied for centuries: place cabbage leaves on the aching joints!
Remove the cabbage's stem and crush the leaves slightly until they yield a little bit of juice, then heat briefly in aluminium foil in the oven not too hot. Wrap the joint and cover with a bandage and then with aluminium foil, to keep the heat in. After a few hours or overnight , the inflammation will be contained by a flavonoid in the cabbage.
Cut the sausage in half and cut into cubes. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, add the butter and fry the onion for a few minutes. Add the sausage cubes and fry until crisp. Remove the stalk and cut into bite-sized strips. Wash the pears, core them and cut them to size.
Simmer for about 15 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve with a slice of bread or boiled potatoes. Wash the kale, using only the leaves and put them in a blender. Add the ricotta cheese and mix. Add the blended kale and ricotta to the eggs and whisk again.
Season with pepper and add 50 g of grated Parmesan cheese. Let cook until the sides start to turn golden minutes. Serve with more pepper and chives, together with a green salad and bread. We humans have been nourishing ourselves on grains for at least 30, years, and started baking cereal mash at least 22, years ago. The major advantage to grains was their long storage life and transportability, as well as their high energy value.
The oldest cereal plants — emmer, wheat, barley, and millet — are known to have been cultivated some 6, years ago. There was still a long way to go, however, before it became our bread of today. First, a mash was made from the painstakinglypicked grass seeds. At some point, some of this mash must have fallen close to the fire, or onto a hot stone after the fire had been put out.
And lo: it hardened, browned, tasted better, and could even be kept around. The invention of the first flatbread! Another probable coincidence from about 6, years ago was a dough that presumably had been left to sit and ferment by accident but was then baked, leading to the invention of sourdough. Flatbread is an important staple in many cultures today, especially for poor populations.
By contrast, "white" bread was consumed at royal courts, as only higher societies could afford finely milled white flour. Through the ages, bread has helped humans survive in times of scarcity, which is why bread holds a special place in so many of the world's religions. The ancient Greeks made the ear of corn an attribute of the goddess Demeter. Early Christians made a sign of the cross over a loaf before the first slice was cut; even today, the world's 2.
Bread baking days were special events for the entire village. The oven would be fired up to bake bread for the entire week. Rapidly rising populations and technical innovations brought on the transition from the baking at home to commercial bakeries that ensured the supply of daily bread.
Today very few people bake their own bread at home, and appreciation for this valuable foodstuff has fallen sharply. It is the ur-scent of our early life, the smell of harmony, peace, and home. Bread is predominantly bought pre-sliced and eaten as "Schmier" with spreads. A large amount of it is baked right here in Luxembourg, often using local grain.
The best-known is Fischer, with 70 bakeries in Luxembourg and France. The bread is produced at Panelux in Roodt-Syre. There are several other bakeries which sell their goods regionally or only in certain shops, however, such as Boulangerie Paul and Pain de Mary. At Klouschterbrout, the Yolande Coop produces baked good by traditional methods using only natural ingredients.
Local providers include Mosella, in the Moselle Region. Some restaurateurs such as Jan Schneidewind at the Atelier du Windsor and Traiteur Steffen do their own baking, and it's sometimes possible to buy their breads for home consumption.
Even businesses primarily known for their delicious pastries such as Oberweis make a point of selling their own bread. Which grain for which bread? A loaf of fresh bread should not only smell delicious, it should also have volume, a soft crumb and a crispy crust.
Only wheat, rye and spelt meet these requirements, making them essential grains for bread baking. Older cultivated plants, such as emmer, einkorn, or kamut, live in the shadows of these giants. Plants cultivated for bread cereals belong to the grass family. The different varieties, each with their own characteristic features, determine how they are used to make bread and the character of the final product. Most of the bread made today is from wheat, which has a mild taste. Thanks to its gluten, wheat can be used to produce baked goods with attractive volume and fine texture.
Heartier tasting rye has other baking properties and is therefore often mixed with wheat or spelt flour. Leaven must be added to bread dough with a rye flour content of more than 40 percent, otherwise the bread will be too dense.
Spelt, with its slightly nutty taste, is similar to wheat in its bread-making properties, albeit more complicated. Spelt is experiencing a revival due to its high amounts of potassium, Vitamin B1, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. Emmer and einkorn are two of the oldest cultivated grain varieties in the world and are closely related to spelt. They are not often planted due to their low yield, although they're teeming with health benefits: rich in proteins, minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and manganese, they are the ideal fuel for powering the human organism.
Both also have a pleasantly nutty, aromatic flavour. It takes some manual skill, however short kneading time, long resting time to make them into aromatic breads. Kamut, with its mildly earthy, slightly nutty flavour, is just as healthy but somewhat easier to work with. But pseudocereals like amaranth, buckwheat and quinoa are also used for bread baking, particularly in gluten-free breads along with corn, rice and millet flours.
These result in a dough that is mostly liquid and won't hold a shape as it's lacking gluten, and therefore must be baked in loaf tins. The aleurone is retained, which is rich in fibre and vitamins, as well as the nutrient-packed germ.
Wholemeal's most important substances include B Vitamins, minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, and secondary plant compounds. Aleurone and germ together are also called bran. The germ is surrounded by a nourishing tissue called endosperm, containing starches. The bran is removed for the production of white flour, and with it almost all vitamins and fibre.
What's left is pure starch, or simply sugar. A diet high in white flour therefore increases the risk of obesity. Those who wish to switch from white flour to wholemeal should do so slowly in order to allow the digestive tract time to adjust to the new foodstuff. White flour need not be demonised, however, as it does contain fibre and the starches in white bread will keep one sated and deliver energy over a longer period than, say, sugar.
Essential baking aids What does our daily bread require? Just flour, water, salt and yeast or sourdough, and a little time. Bread dough will not rise without some kind of leavening. Sourdough and yeast expand the dough's volume and make for a loose crumb, and give breads their unmistakable unique flavour and characteristic aroma. Natural sourdough consists of equal parts rye flour and water mixed together and left to rest covered for two days at room temperature.
The resulting fermentation produces acetic acid, lactic acid, and carbon dioxide. Sourdough is essential for breads with a high percentage of rye, as the rye starter needs to be acidified. The acetic acid bacteria boost the aromas and give the bread its elasticity.
This gives different bread varieties their flavour and appearance. Baker's yeast consists of single-cell microorganisms which produce carbon dioxide from sugars. Leavened dough is made mostly with wheat, and is intended for consumption within a short time. Sourdough bread will stay fresh longer, and takes longer to go mouldy. This is why many wheat breads also contain sourdough, which improves aroma and extends shelf life.
Bread is a natural product. Today, additives such as enzymes, emulsifiers and ascorbic acid Vitamin C are used to ensure consistency in quality and appearance. These ensure a supple dough that remains stable during processing and rises well when baked, depending on the product. In addition, wholemeal breads contain more fibre, vitamins, minerals, and secondary plant compounds than bread made from white flour.
The latter, however, is not as "worthless" as many believe: wheat bread made from white flour has a fibre content of 3. All this speaks in favour of our oldest staple food. A little flour primer A flour's type number is always found on its packaging, indicating the mineral content in mg per g of dry mass.
The type is dependent on how much of the entire grain was ground. Most of the vitamins, minerals and fibre in grain are found in its outer layer, or bran. A rule of thumb: the higher the type number, the more bran is retained in the flour, meaning more vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
The lower the number, the less bran, meaning a whiter flour. The whitest type of wheat, Type , is the most common flour used in households today. Type is normally used for morning rolls. Type is suitable for light brown breads, Type for brown breads and Type for dark brown breads.
There are also comparable — but not identical — types for rye and spelt. Wholemeal flours do not have type numbers. According to standards, wholemeal flours must be derived from the whole grain. Proper bread storage Bread tastes best when it's fresh from the oven. The most important thing to keep in mind when storing bread is protecting it from moisture loss and mould growth.
Especially suitable for this are bread bags lines with wax paper, a ceramic container, or the classic clay roasting pot. A clay pot will allow air to circulate, preventing the bread from drying out, while regulating air moisture. This will keep the bread fresh for much longer without the crust becoming damp and mouldy. Wipe the inside of your clay pot with vinegar and water from time to time in order to get rid of any mould spores.
Bread should never be stored in the refrigerator or in plastic bags. Throwing bread away used to be considered an act of sacrilege punishable by God. Today, unfortunately, these valuable calories often land in the rubbish bin, especially in private households, simply because the bread is no longer fresh. There are several alternatives, however: Avoid old bread: Buy only quantities that you can consume quickly or else freeze portions of it.
Proper storage will keep bread fresh longer. Don't buy baked goods from discount supermarkets, as these will generally age more quickly than fresh bread from the baker, due to the production process. As long as it's not rock hard, stale bread can be partly revived by wrapping it in a damp cloth for a while and then heating it for about 10—15 minutes.
Recycling old bread: Stale white bread or rolls are perfect for processing into breadcrumbs or can be added to meatballs and meat loaf. Crispy, home-made croutons bring variety to salads, while roasted bread crisps make great appetisers: cut white or brown bread into very thin slices, coat with a flavoured olive oil, and roast in the oven. Our grandmothers used old bread to make French toast, bread and butter pudding, and bread dumplings. If your neighbours keep hogs or chickens, you can feed old bread to the animals.
Anything is better than throwing it out! KACHEN : Mr Neuberg, in recent years there's been a significant rise in the number of people who suffer from gluten intolerance or who believe that they do , also in Luxembourg. Why is that? JM Neuberg: Much of the general interest in gluten and all the questions and uncertainties surrounding it are the result of how it has been presented in the media.
It's a recurring topic, especially in connection with nutrition and health. However, much as been falsely or misleadingly reported in the media, for example about gluten intolerance, coeliac disease, and irritable bowel syndrome IBS. What can you tell the people who love good breads and don't want to give them up, so that they can allow themselves a "Botterschmier" in good conscience without having to count on digestive difficulties?
JM Neuberg: Only about 0. Everyone else has IBS. That's not gluten intolerance, but rather a bloating of the stomach due to eating hard-to-digest foods. With bread, this problem mainly involves how it is made. A good bread, baked in the traditional way, takes time.
Since much bread today is produced in mass quantities and as quickly as possible, the long chain carbohydrates FODMAPs, which stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols in the dough no longer get broken down. This means that the indigestible sugars are not broken down during slow fermentation during production, but only in the human body after consumption. These sugars cannot be handled by the stomach and small intestine alone, so they pass undigested into the large intestine where they can cause problems.
I would encourage people to ask, when buying bread, whether it was made in the traditional way using long rising times. If so, then your "Botterschmier" will be digestible and simply delicious! It requires very few ingredients, but a bit of time. With a little patience, even baking novices can successfully execute the following recipe. Let a little air reach the sourdough while it's resting so that it can breathe. Transfer to a sufficiently large bowl it will significantly expand in volume , cover well with clingfilm, and store at room temperature.
After kneading, you should be able to pull it apart so finely that it's almost transparent. Note: the dough will warm up during kneading, however it should not rise above 26 degrees. You may well have to add ice cold water to the dough to keep the temperature down.
Cover the finished dough and let rest for 15 minutes. Afterwards, press the dough flat and fold it several times like a sheet of paper. Then let it rest for another 15 minutes. Divide the dough into two parts, pressing and folding each part several times. Place both loaves sufficiently apart from one another on a slightly greased baking sheet alternatively on baking parchment. Dust the tops with a bit of flour. Cover with clingfilm and let rest once more until the loaves double in volume about 45 minutes.
Make deep, diagonal cuts into the surfaces several times with a sharp knife we recommend 3 equal, diagonal cuts , carefully sprinkle a good bit of water on all sides, and bake in a pre-heated oven for about minutes.

Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Form an indentation in the middle. Pour in the yeast mixture and the beaten eggs, then gently combine into a smooth dough. Remove from the bowl and knead for 5 minutes on a floured countertop until supple and soft. Add two cubes of butter and continue kneading until they are incorporated into the dough.
Repeat until all the butter has been used and the dough has become shiny and elastic, dusting the countertop with flour as you work and using a bench knife or spatula to scrape up the dough as needed—it may take a while to incorporate all that butter, but be persistent. Place the ball in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to rise for 90 minutes. Again briefly knead the dough. Roll out on a lightly floured countertop into a 16 by inch 40 by cm rectangle.
Sprinkle with the brown sugar and frozen fruit. Now, roll up from a short side into a short, thick log. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place the roll in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up, which will make slicing it easier later on. Make: Allow brioches that were stored in the fridge 30 to 45 minutes to reach room temperature before you proceed.
Uncover the brioches and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle over the buns. Let stand briefly to set the glaze, then serve warm or at room temperature.

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, the vanilla sugar and the water until the mass expands and becomes lighter. Spread the dough evenly on a baking tray covered with parchment and bake until light brown for about 20 minutes.
In the meantime, moisten a clean kitchen towel and dust with some fine sugar. Carefully roll and unroll the dough several times while it is cooling in the cloth so that it stays supple and does not break. Add the sugar, the egg yolks and the coffee powder and stir to a smooth cream. Cut cm off each end. Garnish with cream all around. Dip each end in sugar or chocolate and form the spirals into tree rings. Decorate with Christmas decorations and sprinkle with icing sugar. Tip: The Christmas roll can easily be frozen in an air-tight box.
Just take it out of the freezer a few hours before serving. Cut the meat into rough chunks, add to a saucepan and then add the other ingredients for the broth. Heat over medium heat until lightly browned, then add enough water to cover and bring to a simmer. Simmer for at least 40 minutes. The longer the cooking time, the more flavoursome the broth. Then strain through a sieve and keep warm.
Let the potatoes rest for about 5 minutes, then finish frying about 4 minutes. Drain on kitchen paper and season with fleur de sel. Brown the prepared meat trimmed, nerves and tendons removed on all sides in a hot pan with a little oil. Remove from heat and place the meat in a roasting pan. Rub the meat with the paprika, garlic and chilli and place in the oven in the roasting pan.
Marinate in vinegar and olive oil seasoned with salt and pepper. Finely chop the pickled vegetables. Put the cream cheese in a pastry bag. Pipe some onto the slices of toasted focaccia, top with sliced meat and sprinkle with chopped pickles. Garnish with pumpernickel crumbs and sprouts. Top with sliced meat and a little mustard. Sprinkle with buckwheat and chopped hazelnuts.
Ladle over some of the previously reduced stock. Serve with the crispy toasted focaccia and potatoes. Cut the kidney fat into small cubes. Combine in a bowl, add the bread rolls, onions, and garlic, and mix. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add the finely chopped parsley and marjoram and mix well. If necessary, season a bit more.
If the mass is too liquid, add some breadcrumbs. Cover and let rest in the fridge overnight. Remove with a skimmer and drain. Pour over the warm dumplings and serve with a bit of finely chopped parsley or chives. Serve with baked potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Once again our guest chef is Marcel Biver. This approach has inspired Giovanni to center everything around his golden rule of using only fresh and great products.
Giovanni initially started writing about restaurants he visited as a recommendation for friends on his Instagram account, which he decided to expand in into a website and recently a consulting activity for food and beverage industry. Every year, on 13th December, all of Palermo, the capital of Sicily, would smell like frying oil. The western part of the island, and Palermo in particular, insists that it is feminine — therefore arancina arancine in plural.
The eastern part believes it is definitely masculine — and call it arancino arancini in plural. Cook until you can scoop it without dripping sauce around. This takes approximately 15 — 20 minutes. Add 1 tbsp of the ragout in the center and wrap additional rice around it. Shape into a ball with both hands, carefully sealing the ragout inside.
Continue with the remaining rice and filling. Dip in the rice balls and cover with breadcrumbs. Deep-fry for 5 minutes or until golden and crispy. Transfer to kitchen paper and drain. Tip: Leftover ragout can be used for the next pasta dish!
Drain and set aside. After cooking, peel and crush with a fork. Season with salt and pepper and add 20 g melted butter, then set aside.
