Cook Food In A Different Way
The cuisine is a specific style of cooking generally related to a certain region or culture, and usually characterized by special ingredients, methods and dishes. Regional cuisine, cooking traditions and ingredients generally associate with a specific region. Examples are Italian, Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Thai and Middle Eastern cuisines. Regional differences in food styles can be based on climate (in colder regions, for example, it’s normal to see cold appetizers and soups), soil type (irrigation or lack thereof) and even genetics (say, West African and Indonesian cuisines have completely different cooking techniques). In the United States, regional cuisine can be traced back to the early settlers in the early states, when Native Americans were preparing foods according to their own regional climatic conditions and resources. Modern regional cuisines have come a long way since then and can be found world wide in places like Japan, South America, the Middle East, Canada and even Eastern Europe.
There are four types of cooking methodologies used to cook food: frying, grilling, baking and steaming. Frying or grilling food on a hot surface like a pan is one of the oldest techniques used. Pan, wok or frying pans are cheap and easy to cook with. Although you can buy more expensive cooking equipment for this kind of pan, they’re still not as good as a cast iron pan that can go with you from one place to another.
Baking or broiling food on a hot surface like a pan is also an old method of cooking. This method involves cooking food directly over a hot surface, like a pan, for a brief period of time until the food becomes tender enough to eat. For baking, extra care is taken when broiling or frying because they can generate heat that can ignite flammable objects under the cookware. Steaming, on the other hand, involves passing water through a container that’s heated to bring out the flavor and tenderness in foods. Steamers can help you cook food in this manner.
