Beer batter is a simple mix to fry vegetables and seafood. It does not require any eggs or dairy products: vegan and tasty! This mixture will make your deep-fried recipes light and crispy. The beer batter basic recipe needs just flour, beer, olive oil, and salt; but, depending on the recipe, I love adding some spices like turmeric, cumin, or paprika.
The clarified butter recipe is easier than you think and will change your way of cooking! People prefer mostly to fry with oil or common butter, but clarified butter permits to reach high temperatures, maintaining the flavor of the sweet cream butter. Don’t you believe me? Try it on! You need just a single ingredient, a good pot, a thermometer and a sieve 🙂
Fried lamb chops recall my childhood: In Bologna, my hometown, Easter means fried lamb! Even today, I can still see my granny’s hands poaching the meat into the eggs and heavy cream mixture. I can hear the sizzle of the peanuts oil and smell the fragrance of frying chops filling out any space of the house. I have never been bored of this dish! It is so tasty and full of fun, a feast of sensations. The crisp of the golden crust covering a secret of spiced meat, the sour taste of the lemon juice, the permission to eat directly with my hand, a joy forbidden with almost all other courses, so yummy!
Surrounded in the ocean Caribbean, Caye Caulker is a place where time runs slowly and the asphalt has not yet come. “Go slow” suggest the local people when you arrive to the island: the racket of mass tourism has stopped in San Pedro while luxury lovers prefer the resorts in the South of Belize. The nearby reef, the second largest in the world, is an irresistible attraction for divers, while the neighboring atolls offer white beaches and mangrove forests to explore. But, Caye Caulker is not just sea and sand; the influence of nearby Mexico and the Creole culture is felt deeply in the Belizean food and on this small island it is possible taste great dishes, simple, but well prepared. So between a boat trip sailing and a dive at the reef, you can relax with a cocktail at the Split savoring tasty grilled fish, burritos and excellent examples of Creole cuisine.
