This week at Fine Dining Lovers we explored the world of cheese. More precisely, we navigated the different terms used in describing cheeses. Is a cheese aged? Creamy? Does it have notes of caramel?
We found some answers thanks to university researchers who have come up with a cheese alphabet. Knowing how to describe a good English cheddar just got a whole lot easier!
21st Century Indian Cuisine
From cheese we shifted our attention to Indian food, a cuisine that has more than 5,000 years of history. Modernist Indian chefs want the cuisine of their home country to be vibrant, cutting edge and sometimes served with a molecular twist.
The debate then is: how do you blend tradition and innovation? Read the discussion Indian chefs had about what they hope for the future of Indian food.
The Vegetarian Chance
The week ended with a bang as we took a look at the magnificent dishes created during The Vegetarian Chance, a contest dedicated to vegan and vegetarian cuisine. Eight European chefs gathered in Switzerland and later Italy to compete in the last leg of the food festival.
